Playing WATCH: Samuel L. Jackson Goes Off on News Anchor

Well, that was awkward...

Samuel L. Jackson appeared on KTLA for what was supposed to be an interview about his new movie, RoboCop, which quickly derailed when LA news anchor Sam Rubin seemed to mistake the movie-star for another well-known actor, Laurence Fishburne.

Jackson proceeded to lose it and lampoon the anchor for about two solid minutes. The end result is either hard to stomach, or must-see television, depending on what kind of person you are.

Now, in some circumstances this could be chalked up to an honest mistake, but come on! Samuel L. Jackson?! The guy's an icon!

To be fair, Jackson does appear to take the mistake in stride, and laughs the whole ordeal off, but unfortunately for Mr. Rubin, his flub was caught on live television, and is now available on the Internet forever.
