Samuel L Jackson Shows Up At Glasgow Club Night

  • by

Hollywood superstar Samuel L Jackson shocked revellers with a surprise appearance at a club night in Glasgow.

The 74-year-old enjoyed a taste of Scotland’s hospitality at the Bongo’s Bingo event at the city’s SWG3 on Saturday.

The Marvel and Star Wars actor was seen to be smiling at a drag show as he recorded the entertainment from the side of the stage.

The club party night, described as a “bingo rave phenomenon” featuring dance-offs, karaoke and prizes, is staged in venues around the UK.

Speaking about Jackson’s guest appearance, a Bongo’s Bingo spokesperson said: “He literally turned up to watch and ended up giving out glowsticks during the rave round. It was crazy.”

One woman tweeted: “Samuel L Jackson in Bongo’s Bingo in Glasgow. Now there is a sentence I never thought I would type.”

A SWG3 worker added: “Still find it funny that Samuel L Jackson just randomly showed up at my work for Bongo’s Bingo.”

Jackson is currently in Scotland filming a new thriller called Damaged.

According to Hollywood news site Deadline, the movie is about a Chicago detective who travels to Scotland after an emerging serial killer’s crimes match a spate of murders he investigated five years earlier.

On Friday, Jackson posted a picture on Instagram with co-star Vincent Cassel.

During his stay, the Pulp Fiction star has also teamed up with two charities by signing a Rangers FC home shirt to be raffled off.

The money raised will be donated to the Emmie Smillie Charity Foundation and South Lanarkshire’s Kilbryde Hospice.

Both charities said they were “delighted” to receive the prize from the star.
