Samuel L Jackson could have won an Oscar. But the best cut scene
In an interview with Vulture, Jackson admitted that since filming began, “killing timeDirected by Joel Schumacher, I felt like a ticket to a great career. All that changed when the actor saw the finished film. It was like they didn’t want me to get an Oscar the actor wondered. The Carl Lee Healy movie, the killer defended by Matthew McConaughey’s character, wasn’t allowed to show his motives in a particular Jackson scene.
On the first day on set, I was in a room with another actor and I was supposed to do a monologue. When I finished filming, the entire film crew was in tears Jackson remembers. I said to myself, “Well, things are going wellBut this scene did not make it into the movie! Today I know why. It wasn’t my movie, I wasn’t supposed to be the star of it.
The actor admitted that this has happened a few times in his other projects. In the end, he admitted that after a while he understood why such moments were excluded from the films. There are moments in my work when I have to ask: Why did I remove this moment? Because this moment in the project is bigger than the entire movie.
Jackson described working on the role of the killer in A Time to Kill as being carefully designed with his character in mind. By killing him, he was showing his daughter that the people who had wronged her would never harm her again. This is how the character was played, we shot scenes that showed exactly that, but they were cut in the editing. In the movie, it appears that I killed these men and planned my every move to avoid punishment. I saw it on screen and I was sitting there thinking, “What the hell is this?” – said the Oscar-nominated actor for the memorable role of Jules in Pulp Fiction
