Well, it seems Samuel L. Jackson IS in nearly everything. Why not add Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to the impressive list that makes Jackson the highest grossing actor of all-time? Speaking to Vulture, Jackson stated, ""Oh! If I was going to do S.H.I.E.L.D., I'd like to be — you know Charlie's voice on Charlie's Angels? That would be perfect. Because everybody recognizes my voice. That would be good enough for me. And I told Joss that." So maybe we won't actually see Fury but we'll hear his voice at some point. Can't imagine it would cost a whole lot to just get Sam in a recording booth for some voice work. But Samuel did acknowledge that contractual logistics would need to be worked out first, "I don't know. [Joss] can't hire me, I guess. Disney, Marvel, we'll see what they think ... It would legitimize the show in another way. It's like the same thing with Star Wars — I want to be in that too. Bring Mace Windu back!" Well, Mace Windu is dead Sam...but so was Coulson.
