Samuel L. Jackson really wishes he'd been in Black Panther

  Samuel L. Jackson really wishes he'd been in Black Panther Samuel L. Jackson wants to go to Wakanda as much as the rest of us! On Wednesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the Avengers: Infinity War actor stopped by for his 10th appearance on the talk show, which, in addition to his 70th birthday and once again passing Harrison Ford for the honor of highest grossing actor of all-time, led to Jackson being draped in sashes by DeGeneres. Once the celebration ended, he was prompted to discuss the blockbuster smash Black Panther and, more importantly, his lack of presence in the superhero movie. “It’s a great movie,” said DeGeneres, “but I couldn’t believe that you weren’t in it!” “I couldn’t either,” responded the star. “When they were making it, I kept saying, ‘So when do I go to Wakanda?’ And they were [shakes head].” He went on to point out that his Marvel character Nick Fury should totally have a presence in the flick, even asking the producers, “Can I just walk down the street in Wakanda so they know that I know it’s there? Because I know it’s there. I mean, Nick Fury knows every black thing that’s on the planet, so he’s gotta know about Wakanda.” Still there are no hard feelings from Jackson. “I wish I had been there, but I’m really, really, really pleased with the success of that film and how it worked out and eventually I may end up in Wakanda,” he said.

As a producer and songwriter your goal is always to align yourself with the most talented artist that you can find, that person whose gifts are undeniable. Well I found that person. His name was Jackson Odell.

I met him when he was just 17. When he walked into my studio in Los Angeles with his mother, my first question to him was, “Where are you from?” To my shock he responded, “We’re actually from a small town in Colorado that you’ve probably never heard of, called Evergreen.” Unbelievably, that was my home town, where I grew up. Ok, so we’re from the same home town, so what, that’s nice but does he have any talent? It wasn’t until he played the guitar and sang that I was completely blown away. This kid could sing, write, and play the guitar like I could only have dreamed of at 17. I mean, he could do it all, and he was really, really good at all of it. His voice carved a story into your mind with every word that he sang, while playing the guitar with the precision of a seasoned professional musician. On top of that, he was likable and charismatic, I’ve even used the word ‘magnetic,’ drawing people in to both his personality and his music.

Actor and musician Jackson Odell , best known for his role in US TV series The Goldbergs , has died at the age of 20. In a statement on his Twitter account, his family described him as “a shining light and a brilliant, loving and talented soul”. “He had so much more to share.

Jackson and I became very good friends. We worked together on a weekly basis. We wrote, we recorded, we talked about life, religion, politics, dude stuff. We really got to know each other. I wanted so badly to see him become successful, the world needed to know how much talent was inside of this kid and how rare of a find he was.

In the three years I knew him, we probably wrote and recorded over 40 songs. We had many placements together in films and TV shows. The last time I saw him, we performed several of the songs that we had in the film, Forever My Girl, at the director’s wrap party. (He played and sang, I accompanied.)

We lost Jackson last weekend, and I am beyond crushed. He was my friend. Yes, he was also my co-writer, but first he was my friend. Even though there was an age difference, music was the great leveler. There was always a chemistry we had together that was unexplainable to me. It was always an easy write and an even easier recording. We would sometimes start multiple songs in a session because Jackson had so much energy and so many ideas that they would simply not be contained. He would get so excited when he came up with a line, he would literally start jumping up and down saying, “I got it! I got it!” I’m really going to miss that.
