Jackson was considered a character actor/”That Guy”, who would frequently be seen popping up in supporting roles in such notable films as Jurassic Park, Goodfellas and Do the Right Thing. Yes, even Sam Jackson had to start at the bottom just like everybody else, and one of his earliest film roles was a brief bit part as “Gang Member#2” in Milos Forman’s 1981 Academy Award-nominated film, Ragtime.
