Sam Jackson Wants Nick Fury On Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
We know that Agent Coulson will be the main focus of ABC‘s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but his boss Nick Fury wants in on the action as well. Samuel L. Jackson wants to appear on the show in some form or fashion, even if it’s just lending an episode his voice.
Jackson recently spoke to Vulture where he was asked if he would like to be involved with the highly-anticipated show. He was open to the idea and actually sounded really hyped about doing something:
Oh! 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.
That seems like a simple but effective way to have Nick Fury involved with the show about his organization. When asked what Joss thought about his idea, Jackson said there might be some things standing in his way:
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!
I guess the real thing holding back Jackson‘s cameo on the show is what that means for his Marvel contract. If he popped up on TV, would that count as one of his appearances in a Marvel property? You can see how Marvel would consider that a waste since Fury is a big part of their movie universe. Recording a quick voiceover wouldn’t take any time at all and could be done regardless of Jackson‘s film schedule. It sounds like he might even do it for free since he’s so excited. If he’s talking to Whedon about it, then I’m sure they’re looking at the logistics of using him. What do you think? Should Fury be Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Charlie?
