HOUSTON (CBS Houston) — “Django Unchained” star Samuel L. Jackson took an unexpected approach to discussing the controversial new Quentin Tarantino film when he tried to get a Houston film critic to say the “n” word during an interview.

Film critic Jake Hamilton was asking Jackson about the frequent use of the racist word in the movie when the actor cut Hamilton off (about 14 minutes into video above).

“No? Nobody? None? The word would be?” Jackson asked.

Hamilton told Jackson that he doesn’t feel comfortable to say the “n” word, but Jackson tried to force him to utter it anyway.

“Try it … try it,” Jackson pushed. “We’re not going to have this conversation unless you say it.”

Hamilton then asked Jackson to say it.

“No, f*** no, that’s not the same thing,” the actor responded.

Jackson told Hamilton that it wasn’t a great question if he couldn’t say the word.

Despite being critically acclaimed and up for four Golden Globe awards, the movie has been heavily criticized for its use of violence and the prevalent use of the “n” word.

“Django Unchained” has earned $64 million so far since its Christmas day release.
