Samuel L. Jackson is serious about his love for Boy Meets World.
Appearing on NBC's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Tuesday, the star of Captain America: The Winter Soldier performed a slam poem about the '90s TV show starring Ben Savage, Danielle Fishel and Rider Strong. Its sequel, Girl Meets World, reunites the cast and is set to debut sometime in 2014.
It's not known why the 65-year-old decided to pay tribute to the modern classic—but does it matter?
After taking a puff from a cigarette, Jackson delivered a dramatic homage to the family-friendly series. "Boy meets world. Boy greets world. Hello, world! I am Cory Matthews: short and average, head full of curls. The year: 1993. We see two boys who lack both brains and brawn: Cory Matthews and Hunter, or Hunter comma Shawn. Hair parted down the middle, jacket made of leather, alas one man's trailer trash is another man's treasure. Boy meets world. Boy meets girl. Topanga, Topanga, Topanga, beats the heart of Cory, a story as old as time. Daughter of hippies, the name of a gypsy. 'Topanga!'"
