Film or no film, Jackson must have his golf
Golf nut Samuel L. Jackson has a special clause written into his movie contracts – he gets two days off a week to plays his favourite sport.
According to a new report, the Pulp Fiction star has the special “perk package” added to all his contracts.
And producers have to agree to pay for his course fees before he signs up for films.
He revealed: “It’s part of my perk package! Two days off, they have to pay for it. Generally, the way they make that happen is they just move me onto a golf course when they send me to town. My assistant generally has the responsibility of finding the new courses, setting up the tee times and giving me the directions.”
Jackson’s golfing deal was tested recently while he was shooting The Sunset Limited in New Mexico.
He explained: “I was just doing a film with Tommy Lee Jones in Santa Fe, so they moved me into a golf community – the two best golf courses in Santa Fe – and [then] they closed the golf course three days after I got there. I couldn’t go out there and play because it just wasn’t open. I had to find places to play. I’d drive about an hour away and go up to about 6000 feet to play.”
