Samuel L. Jackson stars in "The Avengers," "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "Iron Man 2" as Nick Fury as part of his 9-picture deal with Marvel Studios.

Jackson is currently in production on Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained." Jackson plays the role of Stephen, alongside Christoph Waltz as Dr. King Schultz, Jamie Foxx as Django and Leonardo DiCaprio as Calvin Candie. "Django Unchained" is set in the Deep South during the 1850s and tells the story of a slave-turned-bounty hunter setting out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner.

Samuel L. Jackson is respectfully labeled as one of the hardest working actors in Hollywood, an undisputed star as demonstrated by the fact that his films have grossed more money at the box office than any other actor in the history of filmmaking.

Jackson made an indelible mark on American cinema with his portrayal of Jules, the philosophizing hit man in Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction." In addition to unanimous critical acclaim for his performance, he received Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations as Best Supporting Actor, as well as a Best Supporting Actor Award from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. Among his many award-winning performances, Jackson made movie history with his portrayal of a crack addict in Spike Lee's "Jungle Fever" when he was awarded the first and only Best Supporting Performance Award ever given by the judges at the Cannes Film Festival.

Jackson was most recently seen in Frank Miller's "The Spirit," and lent his voice to the character of Zog in "Astro Boy." Jackson also had starring roles in Doug Liman's sci-fi thriller "Jumper" and the quirky drama "Cleaner," directed by Renny Harlin. He was also see in the Rod Lurie-directed film "Resurrecting the Champ" and the horror film "1408," based on the Stephen King novel. His other recent films include the Craig Brewer film "Black Snake Moan," Irwin Winkler's MGM war drama "Home of the Brave," "Lakeview Terrace" and the comedy "Soul Men" with Bernie Mac.

Other film credits include "Snakes on a Plane," "Coach Carter," the "Star Wars" prequel trilogy, "In My Country," "The Man," "The Incredibles," "S.W.A.T.," "Formula 51," "Changing Lanes," "Caveman's Valentine," "Red Violin," "Shaft," "Unbreakable," "Eve's Bayou," "Jackie Brown," "The Negotiator," "A Time To Kill," "Die Hard with a Vengeance," "The Long Kiss Goodnight," and "Deep Blue Sea."

On the small screen, Jackson serves as executive producer on an animated series for Spike TV, "Afro Samurai," which premiered in 2007 and recently returned for a second season. He also just secured a first-look television deal with CBS to produce and develop upcoming projects. In addition, Jackson has a production deal with New Line Cinema to produce and develop projects in which he has the option of starring.

Recently, Jackson was seen in HBO's "The Sunset Limited," an adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's play. Tommy Lee Jones co-starred and directed the telefilm. On television, in addition to "The Sunset Limited," Jackson starred in John Frankenheimer's Emmy Award-winning "Against the Wall" for HBO. His performance earned him a Cable Ace nomination as Best Supporting Actor in a Movie or Miniseries, as well as a Golden Globe nomination.

Jackson recently made his Broadway debut at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater in Katori Hall's "The Mountaintop," co-starring Angela Bassett and directed by Kenny Leon. "The Mountaintop" is set on the eve of the assassination of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., whom Jackson portrays. The play ended its run on January 22, 2012.
