Samuel L. Jackson has been spotted promoting his latest movie wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the slogan “I’m not Laurence Fishburne”.

The “Pulp Fiction” star became embroiled in an on-air argument with a TV news reporter last month when the anchorman accidentally confused him with “The Matrix” star Fishburne.

Jackson raged at the hapless reporter, “I’m not Laurence Fishburne. We don’t all look alike. We’re all black and famous but we don’t all look alike!… You’re the entertainment reporter for this station and you don’t know the difference between me and Laurence Fishburne? There must be a very short line for your job.”
