Who’s the man responsible for saying curse words across nearly 30 films? We’re talking about Samuel L. Jackson, of course. The actor has iconic performances that have brought him fame and fortune. Even if his cameo doesn’t last more than a few seconds, he still gets millions. It’s rumored, for example, that his appearance as Marvel’s Nick Fury brings him over $4 million.

Marvel’s Nick Fury

The iconic actor first starred as Marvel’s Nick Fury in the 2008 film Iron Man. Up to now, he’s appeared in a total of 11 Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. Some claim he earned between $20 and $30 million for all eleven appearances.

Samuel L. Jackson enjoys playing the role of Nick Fury, too. In an interview in 2019, the actor confirmed that playing the Marvel character is his fifth favorite role of all time. Given the fact that he started his career in 1972, that sure means something. Rumor has it that he’s successfully negotiated to receive $4-6 million for each appearance as Nick Fury.

More on Samuel L. Jackson’s Favorite Roles

In his interview with Jimmy Fallon, Samuel L. Jackson shared a few of his other favorite performances of all time. So, his four favorite characters included Ordell Robbie from Jackie Brown (1997), Stephen from Django Unchained (2013), and Jules Winnfield from Pulp Fiction (1994). Other roles the actor enjoyed playing are Jedi Mace Windu and detective Mitch Hennessey from the 1996 action/mystery film.

In his career, Samuel L. Jackson has received a total of 93 nominations, among which is an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Role in Pulp Fiction. In 2022, the actor won an Academy Honorary Award for his contribution to cinema. He’s expected to appear as the Marvel character Nick Fury at least once more in the 2023 film The Marvels.

DrLupo Has Announced He Will Stream Exclusively on YouTube

Reportedly, DrLupo had signed an exclusive multi-million dollar deal with Twitch back in 2019. Two years later, he announced that he will now stream exclusively on YouTube. The 34-year-old American is known for playing Destiny, Fortnite, Escape from Tarkov, and Among Us and is number 26th on the list of streamers with most followers on Twitch with his 4.5 million.

Twitch Said They Wished DrLupo Nothing But the Best

After DrLupo made his glossy promotional video to announce his transition to YouTube, Twitch said they wished him nothing but the best in everything that is next for him. The announcement video was complete with orchestral music and computer graphics. Like other popular Twitch streamers, DrLupo has been uploading archives of his highlight reels and live broadcasts to YouTube, where he enjoys some 1.75 million subscribers. Now, he is set to stream there exclusively.

Platform Switching Hides Its Dangers for DrLupo and Other Streamers

Changing platforms or games is a dangerous move for any streamer because followers are often more attached to those rather than the person. Because he is transitioning to a smaller platform, DrLupo could experience a large loss of followers. A good example of this is the million-dollar exclusive deal Tyler “Ninja” Blevins signed with Microsoft’s streaming service Mixer in 2019. After losing followers, Ninja started streaming on YouTube Gaming and returned to Twitch, together with another Microsoft streamer – Shroud.

YouTube has poached three top gamers from Twitch in the past and got PewDiePie to sign a live-streaming deal. After Microsoft announced they were shutting down Mixer, they encouraged its partners to sign with Facebook Gaming. However, in the live streaming space, Facebook Gaming and YouTube Gaming are rather small next to the dominating, Amazon-owned Twitch.

Currently, Twitch has around 70% of the total hours watched during 2021, and YouTube Gaming comes second with some 15%. Facebook Gaming is third with 12%.
