How Sam Jackson thinks Nick Fury should appear in TV's S.H.I.E.L.D.

If you were wondering if Fury will be in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., turns out Sam Jackson was, too.

Jackson is overwhelmingly a movie actor. But that doesn't mean he wouldn't be interested in showing up in the new Marvel TV show due out this fall. On the contrary, he seems very interested, just maybe not in the way you expected.

Oh! If I was going to do S.H.I.E.L.D., I'd like to be -- you know Charlie's voice on Charlie's Angels? That would be perfect. Because everybody recognizes my voice. That would be good enough for me. And I told Joss that.

So, heard and not seen? We could get behind that. It would make things a lot easier for Sam to literally phone in what was needed, no matter where else he might be filming at the time. And, eventually, he could always show up for a guest spot.

The only hitch in this plan is Disney.

I don't know. [Joss] can't hire me, I guess. Disney, Marvel, we'll see what they think ... It would legitimize the show in another way.

Well Disney/Marvel, if you're listening -- we think this is a great idea. It just wouldn't be S.H.I.E.L.D. without a little Fury.
