Actor Samuel L Jackson is taking on Simon Cowell for #1 spot forChristmas charts

This is going to be an interesting Christmas for music. Actor Samuel L Jackson is taking on Simon Cowell for the number 1 spot on the Christmas music charts. Music-news reports that the 65-year-old actor, best known for roles in such movies as Pulp Fiction, wants to organise a track that will raise money for testicular and prostate cancer charity One For The Boys. The UK charts are often dominated by the winner of the British X Factor during the festive period, but Samuel thinks he's in with a chance of outdoing Simon Cowell and his talent show. "I have been in Simon Cowell's presence and he can find talented people," he reasoned to British newspaper The Sun. 'He has had Christmas number ones with X Factor acts but there were a couple of times the show was beaten.' The actor is likely to pick a cover and is keen to rope in help from some talented friends. He's close to British rapper Tinie Tempah and could also get Paloma Faith on board, as she has connections to the charity.
