Samuel L. Jackson In PBS Ghostwriter

Growing up as a kid I used to watch a lot of PBS shows. Shows such as "Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?" "Wishbone" and of course "Ghostwriter." Now I was young then and didn't notice this until now. I felt nostalgic and wanted to watch some old school shows, I watched as a kid. I came across the first episode of Ghostwriter and look who is playing Jamal's dad. It's Samuel L. Jackson! Is there anything this guy is not in? Of course this was years ago but damn! Wow!
