Here's a cool little project coming to British TV during a week-long health drive: they got Samuel L. Jackson to sit down and interview his fellow actor and friend, Michael Douglas, about having throat cancer and the battle that ensued!
Who wouldn't want to watch that??
Sam linked up with U.K. talk show This Morning just to help! Not only did he interview Michael, but he was brought on to visit patients at a leading London cancer hospital, encouraging men to see a doctor — especially when warning signs pop up!
The upcoming episode (Thursday!) will be the one showing the interview between the two colleagues! So FAB!
Sam has always been about getting men talking about their health, and what an amazeballz way to do it!
Here's what he said:
"We are trying to figure out how to get men to respond to the information that their body gives them or (get them) sharing information with their friends, saying, 'I have this pain here, I haven't been feeling well, have you ever felt like this and what was it?', and we find that men tend not to do that."
We hope it helps — a LOT of men out there respect Sam (as they mother****ing should!), so we bet this WILL have a positive impact!
