• Samuel L. Jackson returns wielding sword and giving voice to Spike’s anime series Afro Samurai: Resurrection Jan. 25.
HAVE YOU ALWAYS BEEN AN ANIME GEEK?
I have been into the animated world for a while. It’s an interesting world to travel in: violent, sexy and fun.
WHICH DO YOU PREFER—NINJA OR SAMURAI?
Ninja, as a general rule. A lot more weapons. Samurai are dedicated and straightforward.
AFRO SAMURAI WILL HAVE A PLAYSTATION 3 GAME. WHAT’S YOUR GAME ROOM LIKE?
I have every platform setup in my screening room on the big screen. My friends’ kids come over and head straight in there.
HOW DID YOU CELEBRATE YOUR 60TH BIRTHDAY IN DECEMBER?
I invited 200 people, and 400 showed up. It was great. I’m healthy and viable and happy and not decrepit.
