#8 Samuel L. Jackson
Samuel L. Jackson is a prolific actor who appeared in dozens of movies, delivering his classic powerhouse performance time after time. He’s done everything from Patriot Games to Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace and Iron Man. Perhaps his most impressive performance was as Ordell Robbie in the movie Jackie Brown, nominated for a Golden Globe in 1997. His only Oscar nomination came in 1995 for his work in Pulp Fiction, and he has yet to win the award.
