Here's the perfect gift for that struggling, maybe not-so-gifted actor on your shopping list: Acting class, taught by none other than Samuel L Jackson. As Time reports, the Hollywood icon is making a foray into teaching his craft, via online learning portal Masterclass, which makes it not only accessible, but relatively affordable at $90. Included are 21 videos, workbook with lesson recaps, assignments, and supplements; students can ask Jackson questions via video, though it's up to him what he responds to. Jackson joins the likes of Steve Martin, Ron Howard, Usher, Steph Curry, Judy Blume, and Thomas Keller, all of whom teach their craft on the website. (More Samuel L. Jackson stories.)
