VIDEO: Samuel L. Jackson as ‘Breaking Bad’s Walter White

Once again Samuel L. Jackson proves what a badass he is.

No, this isn’t an audition tape. Jackson did not audition for the role of Walter White in “Breaking Bad.”

Jackson is partaking in a little give-and-take with his fans. He posted on Reddit promising to read the most up-voted 300-word monologue if in turn Reddit users agree to donate to his Alzheimer’s Association fund.

Having just reached a financial goal of $155,000, Jackson is keeping up his end of the bargain by uploading a video of himself reciting one of the most famous monologues of “Breaking Bad.”

Jackson recites the lines of Walter White when he tells his wife Skylar that he’s the “one who knocks.” The scene is from the fourth season of “Breaking Bad.”

If users raise $175,000, Jackson has promised to record three unique voicemail messages for three donors.

So, for the sake of seeing more Samuel L. Jackson videos, let’s raise some money to fight Alzheimer’s.
