In 2017, Brie Larson was all set to direct and star in “Unicorn Store,” and she let her buddy, Samuel L. Jackson, know. In his IndieWire interview, Jackson revealed that he asked the “Room” star why she didn’t immediately consider him to co-star in the film, and Larson argued that she was afraid of being shot down, so she never asked at all. As a result, a relieved Larson invited him to play the part, and Jackson happily obliged.
Larson has had a stunning transformation in the public eye and, when she joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Captain Marvel, the actor was happy to have a supportive friend guiding her through it all — especially when Jackson reprised his role as Nicky Fury. She told Entertainment Weekly how the conversation went: “Marvel was like, ‘Is there anybody that you’d wanna do [the movie] with?’ And I was like, ‘Please. I need to be with my pal. Don’t let me do it alone!’”
Larson fully expected Jackson to give her some heartfelt advice about joining the world-conquering film franchise, but all he said was, “You’re fine. Enjoy it.” During a 2019 appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” Larson recalled that Jackson visited the “Avengers: Endgame” set on Star Wars Day because he knew she was a huge fan and wanted to gift her his lightsaber, which had been engraved with “bad motherf*****.”
