Picture Trivia

          In 2006, Samuel L(eroy) Jackson starred in the film Snakes on a Plane as FBI agent Neville Flynn. Do you know how many snakes were used in the film? Around 450 different species of snakes, including a 22-foot Burmese python that the production crew nicknamed “Kitty.” Most of the snakes you’ll see in the film, however, were added digitally.
          It was also in 2006 when Jackson starred in the film Black Snake Moan. It has, however, nothing to do with snakes, and the title of the film was only taken from the song of American blues singer and guitarist “Blind” Lemon Jefferson in 1927. In this film, Jackson played the role of Lazarus, a former blues musician who was deserted by his wife. The story revolves around Lazarus helping a young girl, Rae (Christina Ricci), long being abused by her parents.
