Is That Jules Winnfield In Your Pocket, Mr. Jackson?

If you were famous, would you flaunt it?

Would you be someone like Johnny Depp, Seth Rogen and “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson, who play down their star-quality every chance they get – thereby making us want to make them even bigger stars? Or would you be someone like the big-name actor I was interviewing yesterday, who really does seem like the type of guy who’d carry a wallet reading: “Bad Motherf-cker.”

Take a look at the video and you’ll see me talking to Samuel L. Jackson about his hit TV show and soon-to-be videogame “Afro Samurai.” Suddenly, I hear something familiar interrupting us, but I don’t know where it’s coming from.

Yep, it’s Samuel L. Jackson’s “Ezekiel 25:17” speech from “Pulp Fiction.”

“Are you pushing something,” I asked. “Or am I losing my mind? “That’s my phone,” Sam Jackson replied, fessing up. “And it’s Frank Miller! Damn!

I’ve gotta admit: Sam Jackson’s ringtone, and the fact that his background image is himself looking badass, is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.

“It’s kind of embarrassing,” he admitted, though I don’t think he meant it. “I have my picture in the middle of my phone, and then I have my own voice as my ringtone. That’s sorta bad…Okay, I’m an ego-maniac. You busted me.”

Sam would later tell us that he bought the ringtone off the Internet. My cameraman asked why he didn’t just re-record it himself and save $1.99. Jackson admitted he never thought of that, but then again, it’s Sam the man’s world and we’re just living in it.

If you were a big-time movie star, would you play it up like Sam, or play it cool like Johnny Depp? What would be the craziest thing you’d do?
