Samuel L.Jackson will play Ptolemy Grey, a 91-year-old man forgotten by his family, by his friends, by even himself in a new six-episode limited series for Apple TV+.
The one-time Jedi will also EP the offering, based on an acclaimed novel by Walter Mosley. Mosley is writing the screen adaptation and executive producing.
Per Variety, “In the brink of sinking even deeper into a lonely dementia, Ptolemy experiences a seismic shift when he’s given the tremendous opportunity to briefly regain his memories, and uses this precious and fleeting lucidity to solve his nephew’s death and come to terms with his past”.
Jackson is 20 years shy of 91, by the way.
The actor was last seen in… heck, what was the last Marvel superhero flick!?
