An avid golfer (with a six handicap) and a rabid sports fan, Samuel L. Jackson will host "The ESPY Awards" on July 10.
SI: You were at the Tyson-Lewis fight, correct?
Jackson: Yes, I was at the Tyson-Lewis beat-down.
SI: As a Jedi Master, do you think Tyson has been overtaken by the Dark Side?
Jackson: Not that night, he wasn't. He needed some Dark Side. At least then he would have fought back.
SI: Two years ago you purchased Roseanne's Beverly Hills home. Did you make sure that Tom Arnold didn't come with the house before you bought it?
Jackson: [Laughs.] Well, I don't think that was an issue at the time.
SI: We read that you're a serious golfer. What are the three best courses you've played?
Jackson: Shadow Creek [ Las Vegas], The Royal Birkdale [ England] and Rancho Murieta Country Club [Sacramento County].
SI: Tiger Woods always wears red on Sunday. What do you wear when you want to shoot a good score?
