'Django Unchained': Samuel L. Jackson Tells Interviewer, Jake Hamilton, To 'Try' Saying The N-Word

Posted: Updated:

What would a Samuel L. Jackson interview be like without a bit of humor?

The actor recently poked fun with Emmy Award-winning journalist Jake Hamilton during a press interview for “Django Unchained,” in which he was asked about his thoughts on the controversy surrounding the usage of the N-word in the film.

However, instead of answering Hamilton’s direct question, Jackson flipped the script and asked the critic if the N-word in question was no, nobody or none before asking Hamilton to “try” saying the actual derogatory term.

Check out the tongue-in-cheek clip (at the 13:56 mark) above.
