Snakes on a Plane is such a hilariously stupid concept you have to wonder how the hell it got off the drawing board in the first place and how it got through editing without someone changing the title, well the answer to both of those questions is Samuel L. Jackson.
Samuel L. Jackson is known as one of the world’s most powerful and versatile actors, he’s also as bald as shaved billiard ball. So when he chooses an acting role, one of the things that sways him is how badass he gets to be and whether he’ll get to pick the look (read: wig) of his character.
If you’ve never watched Scooby-Doo, you can stop reading this entry, close your browser and silently weep, if people are around, don’t worry, they’ll understand because they watched Scooby-Doo as children.
