Samuel L. Jackson Discusses the Nuances of Artificial Intelligence: ‘It Could be Something to Worry About’

Artificial intelligence has been on the minds of many people in recent months due to platforms like ChatGPT and music producers utilizing voices from deceased artists. Many fear the troubles that can happen with the technology and actor Samuel L. Jackson has stated that he is not a fan of it in an exclusive interview with Rolling Stone magazine.

While discussing his role in the new Disney + series, “Secret Invasion” which premiered earlier this week, he spoke about the dangers of A.I. and his experience working with the technology.

When questioned about another esteemed actor, Tom Hanks expressing his fears about artificial intelligence, Jackson seemed perplexed that people are just now questioning the latest technology that has been around for some time now.

“People just started worrying about that? I asked about that a long time ago. The first time I got scanned for George Lucas [for The Phantom Menace] I was like, “What’s this for?” George and I are good friends so we kind of had a laugh about it because I thought he was doing it because he had all those old guys in Episode I, and if something happened to them, he still wanted to put ‘em in the movie.”

He has experienced the use of A.I. during his filming in the Marvel movies he has been involved with for years.

“Ever since I’ve been in the Marvel Universe, every time you change costumes in a Marvel movie, they scan you. Ever since I did Captain Marvel, and they did the Lola project where they de-aged me and everything else, it’s like, ‘Well, I guess they can do this anytime they want to do it if they really want to!’

Jackson gives up-and-coming actors some advice when it comes to accepting it when they are negotiating their contracts with film companies.

“It could be something to worry about. Future actors should do what I always do when I get a contract and it has the words “in perpetuity” and “known and unknown” on it: I cross that shit out. It’s my way of saying, “No, I do not approve of this.”

You can catch the actor portraying Fury in the Disney + series, “Secret Invasion.”
