Glass Half Jack­son

What's On (Dubai) - - CULTURE -

Ac­cord­ing to Google, Sa­muel L Jack­son has ap­peared in ‘at least 126’ films – his great­est hits in­clude Jun­gle Fever, Pulp Fic­tion and Un­break­able. In Glass, Jack­son reprises his role in the lat­ter as the crafty Eli­jah Price aka Mr Glass who takes on the an­tag­o­nist from an­other M Night Shy­malan thriller – Split’s mul­ti­ple per­son­al­i­tyrid­den Kevin Crumb.

How did you find out you would have the op­por­tu­nity to play Eli­jah again?

“I watched Split, and at the end of it, we get Bruce in the café and the wo­man talks to him about Mr. Glass. I was like, ‘so are we gonna make this movie?’ And Night says, ‘Well, it de­pends on the open­ing week­end.’”

What can we ex­pect from Eli­jah this time around?

“All of a sud­den, my char­ac­ter has the thing he wanted: the good guy, the bad guy, and I get to be in the mid­dle of them. It has a dis­tinct sat­is­fac­tion if you re­mem­ber what his the­ory was all along, that there are peo­ple out here with ex­tra­or­di­nary pow­ers who can do ex­tra­or­di­nary things. And it’s amaz­ing to watch James have an ar­gu­ment with four dif­fer­ent char­ac­ters in front of my face.”

And you’re also giv­ing Fro­zone an­other goaround in

In­cred­i­bles 2? “[Repris­ing roles] val­i­dates that you’ve made a char­ac­ter who’s last­ing, that it brings them joy, which is an im­por­tant thing about the en­ter­tain­ment busi­ness.”
