Jackson starred in the 2014 remake of “RoboCop,” which also stared Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman and Michael Keaton.

“Out of Sight” (1998)

“Goodfellas” (1990)

Samuel L Jackson starred as Stacks Edwards, a character overshadowed by Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, Joe Pesci and Paul Sorvino.

“Coming to America” (1988)

Who hasn’t seen “Coming to America,” where Eddie Murphy, who plays an African prince, travels to Queens to find his wife? But did you also forget that Jackson played a role in the film? Credited on IMDb as Hold-Up Man,” who robs a restaurant in which Murphy dines.

“True Romance” (1993)

Quentin Tarantino first cast Jackson in a small but memorable role as a small-time hood with a bottomless appetite who’s quickly offed by Gary Oldman’s short-fused drug dealer/pimp Drexl Spivey.

“Jurassic Park” (1993)

Jackson played John Arnold in the first “Jurassic Park,” the chief engineer who was killed by a Velociraptor in a shed.

“School Daze” (1988)

In Spike Lee’s early movie about students at an historically black college like his own alma mater, Atlanta’s Morehouse College, Samuel L Jackson has a small but crucial scene as a townie who confronts the students about their sense of entitlement — in typically foul-mouthed way: “I betcha you n–ers think y’all are white.”

“Patriot Games” (1992)

Harrison Ford’s first big-screen turn as CIA analyst Jack Ryan features Jackson in a small role as Navy Lieutenant Commander Robby Jackson, a buddy of Ryan’s from his military career who comes to his aid when terrorists come after both him and the British royal family.

“Star Wars” (Prequels)

Jackson portrayed Mace Windu in the “Star Wars” prequel films. Yeah, we forgot too.

“Kill Bill Vol. 2” (2004)

Jackson made sneaky cameo in the film as Rufus, the wedding piano player.

“The Incredibles” (2004)

Jackson voiced Frozone in the Pixar-animated flick. The movie came out so long ago that you probably had long forgotten his role in the film. He reprised the role in the sequel.

“Inglorious Basterds” (2009)

Jackson served as the narrator in the film, but he is never seen. Did you recognize Jackson’s voice?
