Samuel L. Jackson is preparing for an online class, in which the actor will deliver wisdom and pointers he knows very well from playing more than 100 roles throughout his 45-year film career.
The course will be available for a one-time fee of $90 and is being offered exclusively through MasterClass. Their lineup of celebrity instructors already includes Martin Scorsese, Shonda Rhimes, Dustin Hoffman, Kevin Spacey and Steve Martin, and Jackson’s class is supposed to begin in the next few months.
In the class, Samuel L. will share lessons about how to break down a script, leverage your voice, embody a character, improve your auditioning skills, and how to collaborate in the industry. The course will include over 20 video lessons, a downloadable workbook, and the chance for students to ask Jackson questions, which he’ll answer selectively.
Jackson said in a statement, “In my MasterClass, I hope students learn that there’s no limit to what they can make-believe. By the end, they’ll be able to walk into a room, present their best self, and be happy with the result.” MasterClass CEO and co-founder David Rogier also commented, saying, “As one of the most successful actors of all time, Samuel L. Jackson has a tremendous amount to teach not only about the craft of acting, but also the practical side of building your acting career.”
