Samuel L. Jackson: My Character in the RoboCop Remake Could be Called 'Rush Sharpton'

July 24th, 2013 11:01 AM

During a Comic-Con panel to promote the remake of the 1987 movie "RoboCop" actor Samuel L. Jackson revealed he plays a talk show host character that is inspired by two ideological opposites - Al Sharpton and Rush Limbaugh.

On Friday, Jackson described his character's motivations: "I like to refer to Pat Novak as 'Rush Sharpton.'" Jackson then went on to insult Limbaugh, by lumping him in with Sharpton, as he explained the Novak character is "A guy who has an opinion and is not afraid to state it, and uses every means necessary to get people to agree with him."
