Interviewing Samuel L. Jackson the voice of Lucius Best / Frozone
When I found out I was going to Los Angeles to cover the Incredibles 2 Event, I knew it was one step closer to being a possibility. But I didn’t hold my breath. But when I found out it was really happening, I think my inner school girl cheered.
While I didn’t personally ask him a question, the interview was everything I imagined it would be and more. Here are Six things I learned about Samuel L. Jackson.
Samuel L. Jackson has a Superpower
Frozone can make ice in Incredibles and even though he’s “hot” in real life, his super power is earning money for his wife and daughter. He has also survived thirty eight years of marriage, so I decided he really has two Superpowers!
CHILLING OUT – Frozone is back in “Incredibles 2,” cooler than ever and lending a helping hand when the Parrs need him most. Featuring the voices of Huckleberry Milner as Dash, Sarah Vowell as Violet ad Samuel L. Jackson as Frozone aka Lucius Best, “Incredibles 2” opens in U.S. theaters on June 15, 2018. ©2018 Disney•Pixar. All Righs Reserved.
Frozone The Movie
Samuel L. Jackson always like seeing a movie with himself in it, and told us that anything starring him is a good idea, so he would like to see a Frozone The Movie. (I agree Samuel, I agree!)
If Frozone could be another character, who would it be?
Edna because she is the dope-est, she’s wise cool dry, and unaffected by the world and the world revolves around her.
What advice would you give to young actors just starting out?
Do as much theater as you can do, go to New York, challenge yourself on stage or off Broadway or even on Broadway. Work with as many different kinds of actors and directors as you can and learn the craft. Work Upstage downstage, stage right stage left, back stage, and every position you can. There’s a wealth of information to be gained from working in front of real people every night and getting that claps or getting laughter because you learn from that. And there’s no real way to know you can do it until you hear people say it or you’re in a theater and you feel the energy of the audience when you’re doing something. When you make them said or you hear them, awe, then you make them happy, they laugh they applaud they cheer they sigh they do whatever.
When you feel the energy of people, then you know okay, this works, that works, that doesn’t work, this works. So that when you get to this place, or on a screen somewhere, you don’t have to question what you do, it feels right, you know, it works.
Why does Samuel Jackson get to play the best characters?
He doesn’t know, but he just has fun playing the ones I get, (Which in my humble opinion, make him the BEST at what he does!)
Favorite Personal Movie?
Oh Long Kiss Goodnight because that movie is a really underrated film because the studio didn’t quite know what to do with because women weren’t bad asses in that time. And they didn’t think women wanted to see it- they didn’t think men wanted to see women be bad asses at that time, so they didn’t know how to market that movie, but it’s since gained a really great cult favorite, because I mean Geena is awesome in that movie, she is so awesome, it was great.

About Incredibles 2
In INCREDIBLES 2, Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose super powers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.
Directed by Brad Bird (“Iron Giant,” “The Incredibles”) and produced by John Walker (“The Incredibles”) and Nicole Grindle (“Sanjay’s Super Team” short, “Toy Story 3” associate producer).
