Playing golf, a part of Samuel L. Jackson’s movie contracts!

London, May 9 (ANI): Hollywood actor Samuel L. Jackson has said that when he signs up for a movie he makes sure that the contract allows him to play golf two days a week between shoots.

Filmmakers have to agree to his deal and pay for the golfing sessions before he signs up for the deal.

“It’s part of my perk package. Two days off, they have to pay for it. Generally, the way they make that happen is they just move me onto a golf course when they send me to town,” Jackson said.

“My assistant generally has the responsibility of finding the new courses, setting up the tee times and giving me the directions,” he added.

The 61-year-old actor’s golfing deal was proved when he was shooting The Sunset Limited in New Mexico, reports The Daily Express.

“I was just doing a film with Tommy Lee Jones in Santa Fe, so they moved me into a golf community - the two best golf courses in Santa Fe. And they closed the golf course three days after I got there,” Jackson explained.

“I couldn’t go out there and play because it just wasn’t open. I had to find places to play. I’d drive about an hour away and go up to about 6,000 feet to play,” he added. (ANI)
