Hasselhoff: Samuel L. Jackson “not Nick Fury”

David Hasselhoff has appeared to suggest that he wasn’t impressed with Samuel L. Jackson’s big-screen portrayal as Nick Fury.

Hasselhoff, who played Fury in the 1998 made-for-TV movie Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., admitted to Yahoo that he wasn’t sure about Jackson’s casting in the role.

 

“You know, it wasn’t Nick Fury. They take these shows and they make it the way they want to make it and unfortunately, they should have had Stan Lee on the set and let him kick him into gear – whoever directed [The Avengers] decided they wanted to go that way.”

“But it’s their prerogative. He’s still a great actor….I was hoping to have played him in the movie. And then Samuel L. Jackson came in and he was a great Nick Fury but he wasn’t really the consummate Nick Fury, the way he was written. And I think that’s a shame because he’s a great character and a funny character…I’m hoping to do it again sometime.”

 
Hasselhoff also revealed that Stan Lee paid him “the greatest compliment ever” during filming of Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.;

 

“I was the first Nick Fury. Stan Lee put me in that. He gave me the best line ever: ‘Guys like you tend to cling to the bowl no matter how many times you flush’.”

“Stan Lee came on the set and told me all about Nick. He said ‘You’re the ultimate Nick Fury’. He gave me the greatest compliment ever.”

 
So, Marvel fans, who would you have rather seen approach Tony Stark in that legendary Iron Man post-credit scene, talking about the Avenger Initiative; Jackson or Hasselhoff?
