Fishburne glad he turned down Pulp Fiction
The movie went onto be a huge hit, reigniting Travolta's career and earned Jackson an Oscar nomination.
But Fishburne isn't jealous, insisting the role was made for his close friend.
He says, "I decided not to do it, because I couldn't respond to the part. As a whole piece, it didn't speak to me. It didn't feel like something I needed to do. It's the part that Sam Jackson wound up doing, brilliantly.
"I'm glad I didn't do it, because Sam is a bada**.'"
