Samuel L. Jackson Reveals Master Plan to Live Forever

Let’s be real, we need Samuel L. Jackson to stick around for that unprecedented 9-movie contract deal he signed with Marvel. And his casual way of unveiling his master plan to continue playing Nick Fury is pretty great.

In an interview with Yahoo! to promote the movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the exchange went like this:

Yahoo! rep: “I saw some photos of you last night on the red carpet and you’re looking remarkably trim. What’s your secret?”

SLJ: “Uhh… new vegan diet.” *shifty eyes*

Yahoo! rep: “Is that what it is?”

SLJ: “Yea…”

Yahoo! rep: “For any particular reason?”

SLJ: “No. Just trying to live forever. Trying to finish out my Marvel deal.” *chuckles*

So there you have it, another cultural heavyweight has joined the plant-eater’s community — even if it’s just for a while.

The interview is worth watching, if only to see how supremely chill SLJ is in comparison to the slightly nervous British man interviewing him.

Also, (not vegan-related, but still completely crucial to point out) SLJ has a shirt he wears to filmed interviews that reads, “I’m not Laurence Fishburne.”

Simply wonderful. Long live the Fury.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters April 4, 2014.
