Samuel L. Jackson Would Star In 'Peaky Blinders' And 'Luther' If Asked
The casts of Peaky Blinders and Luther could become even more starry, as critically acclaimed actor Samuel L. Jackson reveals that he would appear in either - if asked by bosses.
Samuel is a fan of both of the British hit shows, and would definitely say yes if he was approached by producers for roles.
Speaking to LADbible while in the UK to promote upcoming M.Night Shyamalan film Glass, the american actor said: "Do I watch UK shows? Like Peaky Blinders and Luther?
"Yes I do. I love those shows."
Asked if he would sign up to either - or both - if he was asked, Samuel said: "I would. Of course! I like those shows a lot."
The BBC is currently still filming the next series of Peaky Blinders, meaning the actor could even join the likes of Cillian Murphy and Paul Anderson last minute.
Luther season five has just come to a close, but with chatter of a potential film starring Idris Elba, an appearance for Samuel is not totally off the cards.
This comes after David Beckham sparked rumours that he would be starring in the upcoming Peaky Blinders, after he was spotted on set for the Birmingham-based gangster drama from the Beeb.
Becks posted behind-the-scenes snaps from the set with his 53.3 million Instagram followers, sending them into a frenzy over a potential appearance as filming is still underway.
In the caption, the dad-of-four wrote: "Big thanks to the creator Steve Knight and the crew for looking after me. Excited for season 5 @peakyblindersofficial."
But it seems like the pro-footballer-turned-fashion-designer isn't trying his hand at acting again just yet.
A spokesperson said: "We're not aware of David appearing in the fifth series of Peaky Blinders," although not *completely* shutting down hopes.
