Samuel Jackson's (Mace Windu's) purple lightsaber was supposedly at his behest because that's his favorite color. Are there other conspicuously-purple items that Jackson's characters have had?
According to IMDB, "his characters often feature the color purple", including the following:
- Mitch Hennessy wore a purple-violet gem ring in The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996)
- Mr. Glass wore purple clothing in Unbreakable (2000)
- Jackson chose to have Doyle Gipson wear a purple hat in Changing Lanes (2002)
- Mace Windu, upon request by Jackson to George Lucas, wielded a purple light saber in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002) and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005)
- Lazarus, Jackson's character in Black Snake Moan (2006), plays a purple Gibson guitar.
- Neville Flynn at one point was carrying around a blue and purple snake in Snakes on a Plane (2006).
