"People always come up behind me and start reciting Pulp Fiction lines and somebody came up behind me and started doing Ezekiel... and I turned around and it was Marlon Brando. I was like, 'Wow! You know that speech...?' He said, 'Call me sometime,' and he gave me his number... I had some great conversations with him." Samuel L. Jackson on his little-known friendship with Marlon Brando. The two actors first met backstage at a Michael Jackson birthday concert in New York in 2001.
