Samuel L. Jackson Would Like to Guest on S.H.I.E.L.D.

Clark Gregg is set to reprise his role as Agent Coulson in Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D. — but what about Samuel L. Jackson? Will he at least cameo as Nick Fury? "Oh!" he said when we asked him this earlier this week, at a gala hosted by the American Institute for Stuttering. "If I was going to do S.H.I.E.L.D., I'd like to be — you know Charlie's voice on Charlie's Angels? That would be perfect. Because everybody recognizes my voice. That would be good enough for me. And I told Joss that." What did he say? "I don't know. He can't hire me, I guess. Disney, Marvel, we'll see what they think ... It would legitimize the show in another way. It's like the same thing with Star Wars — I want to be in that too. Bring Mace Windu back!"
