TV Reporter Confused Samuel L. Jackson With Laurence Fishburne

Updated: Tuesday, February 11 2014, 11:11 AM CST

A veteran entertainment reporter's amateur mistake made him the target of actor Samuel L. Jackson's great vengeance and furious anger.

During an interview on Los Angeles' CW-affiliate, KTLA reporter Sam Rubin asked Jackson about his recent role in a Super Bowl commercial. The only problem is that Rubin had confused Jackson with fellow actor Laurence Fishburne, a terribly public stumble that the bombastic Jackson wasn't too forgiving about.

"See, you know what? You're as crazy as the people on Twitter," Jackson exclaimed. "I am not Lawrence Fishburne!"

A sheepish Rubin responded, "That's my fault. I know that. That was my fault. My mistake."

"We don't all look alike!  We make be all black and famous but we don't look alike," Jackson continued. "You are busted."

Rubin continued to profusely apologize over the laughter of his colleagues in the KTLA studio. However, Jackson was dogged.

"You're the entertainment reporter for this station? And you don't know the difference between me and Larry Fishburne," Jackson asked incredulously. "There must be a very short job for your line outside."

Rubin tried several more times to put the interview back on track but Jackson continue to mock him for another two minutes.

After the segment, Rubin offered another apology to his audience. He said he stands apart from other reporters in that he generally knows what he's talking about.

"But I didn't 30 minutes ago, and I'm really embarrassed about it," he added. "And I very much apologize to Samuel L. Jackson and anyone else who was offended for what was a very amateur mistake."

And you will know his name is Samuel L. Jackson when he lays his vengeance upon thee.
