Jackson's Double Trouble With Cosby

SAMUEL L. JACKSON kickstarted his career in Hollywood with his "weirdest job" to date - he first worked as a stand-in for BILL COSBY.
The Pulp Fiction star was hired as a body double for the comedian on his hit 1980s TV series before carving out a career as a successful actor in his own right.
And he insists starring in the show - but having no lines - was his strangest ever on-set experience.
Jackson, 59, says, "That's the weirdest job I ever had. I would just jump in when I was needed. I did that for a while but it was weird."
