How did Samuel L. Jackson discover he was gonna be Nick Fury? The answer might surprise you.

For BlastrTV's latest episode in our ongoing series of sci-fi origin stories,  we talked with Jackson to learn how his nine-picture deal as the head of S.H.I.E.L.D. came to be. Click below to learn why it's OK that Fury's no longer a "white guy with a cigar" -- plus why he insisted on that gnarly scar.

After you've done that, take a look at the first two installments of our ongoing origins series as Robert Kirkman shares what it was like when Walking Dead was born and Neil Gaiman explains the inspiration for Sandman.

And keep coming back for future episodes, in which we'll talk to Katee Sackhoff about her first days with Battlestar Galactica and more.

This clip, as well as all past and future episodes of BlastrTV, are also available in the Syfy Now app for iPhone and iPad, as well as Syfy's Xbox app and Roku Channel. If you're looking to view this episode in the Blastr app, you can access it in the video section.
