Work is the driving force for Samuel Jackson..


New Delhi, May 24 -- Hollywood star Samuel Jackson, who is famous for his role of Mace Windu in Star Wars and as Nick Fury in The Avengers, says that it is his work that gives him the energy to give the best.

"Painters get up and paint. Writers get up and write. I get up and create characters. I like creating. It fuels me. And it's doing something that keeps me from being me all day," he says. "I'd rather be working. It's still the thing that drives me. I'm still doing the movies I was pretending to do as a kid," he adds.

The 66-year-old will now be seen playing the role of the President of US in upcoming film, Big Game. Talking about his character, he says, "The story is about the President's plane getting shot down somewhere over Finland and he escapes in a safety pod. He encounters a 13-year old boy, who's out on a manhood ritual. His father killed a bear and the boy thinks he has to kill something bigger. He is out there trying to prove himself and I'm out there trying to save myself."
