Well actually that should be, "watch Samuel L. Jackson playing a Russell Simmons-type character in 20th Century Fox’s upcoming comedy action thriller Kingman: The Secret Service." You know, a middle aged hip-hop mogul who still dresses like a 14 year old and who ought to know better.
Here’s your first look at the trailer for the film directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X Men: First Class), which is based on the comic book about “a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius,” which I suspect might be the role that Jackson is playing, but don’t quote me on that.
Aside from Jackson, the film also stars, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Jack Davenport, Michael Caine, and Sofia Boutella and it opens on October 24th.
