Samuel L. Jackson Joining Jose Padilha’s ROBOCOP Reboot.

The Hollywood Reporter reports (pun intended) that Samuel L. Jackson will be playing Pat Novak, a media mogul, in Robocop. Jackson joins the already announced Joel Kinnaman and Gary Oldman.

Having recently re-watched the original Robocop I can see this role being similar to the “I’d buy that for a dollar” guy.  I could also see Padilha playing off of today’s obsession with reality tv.
