(Newser) – Samuel L. Jackson has made it into the Guinness Book of World Records as the highest-grossing actor of all time, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Jackson’s films—he’s made more than 100—have earned more than $7.4 billion, thanks in part to huge earners like the Star Wars prequels, which account for a whopping $2.4 billion. Perhaps Jackson isn’t the person you would have guessed held the spot—but who can deny the appeal of an actor who will do this?
