The Shreve according to Samuel L. Jackson
He called Shreveport a "big casino town." "It's kind of a like a Vegas South." I can see the billboards already.
Apparently, he loves the casinos, but he only goes during the week. He said the character of the town changes when out-of-towners come for the weekends. "A $5 table becomes a $25 table."
Though he likes gambling, he's not into high stakes. "I’m still a kid from Tennessee. A $50 bet is big for me."
Also, "I enjoy the slot machines sometimes too."
He plays golf. A lot. He said we have some nice courses. "Southern Trace is really nice." If you listen closely, you can hear the real estate agents upping their listings.
SLJ said he was staying at Stonebridge, where he can play 18 without anyone knowing. Except for everyone on the planet watching Letterman tonight, of course.
He also talked about "Black Snake Moan," which looks fantastic, and played blues guitar and sang with Shaffer's band.
Anyone catch anything else?
