Samuel L. Jackson eviscerates anchor who confused him with Laurence Fishburne

KTLA anchor Sam Rubin picked the wrong person to drop a case of mistaken identity on during a live interview.

While appearing on the Los Angeles morning show on Monday to talk about his new movie Robocop, Rubin asked Samuel L. Jackson about his Super Bowl commercial. The problem was, Jackson didn't appear in a Super Bowl commercial, it was another actor, Laurence Fishburne.

"I'm not Laurence Fishburne," Jackson exclaimed after a painfully long silence. "We don't all look alike! We may be black and famous, but we don't all look alike!"

Rubin apologized and tried to steer the conversation back to Robocop, but Jackson wasn't having it.
