Actor Samuel L Jackson wanted to star in hit musical movie Mamma Mia! because he's a huge Abba fan.
The Pulp Fiction actor revealed that he wasn't aware the film was in production until it was completed, even though his filmmaker friend Phyllida Lloyd directed it.
Jackson says he would have begged to land role in Abba-themed musical if he had known about it.
"I missed that because a friend of mine actually directed Mamma Mia! And I didn''t know it until I saw her last year at the British Film Awards and they won all of these awards,” the Daily Express quoted him as saying.
“I would have called to be in Mamma Mia! I''m a huge Abba fan," he added.
