Photos of Justin Timberlake, Samuel L Jackson, Jon Hamm at American Cinematheque Gala

JT Makes Jokes and Helps Honor Samuel L. Jackson

Samuel L. Jackson was honored by friends and colleagues last night at the American Cinematheque gala in LA. The event was sponsored by AMC, so Jon Hamm was out with his girlfriend to support Mad Men's home network, while JT hammed it up on stage. To help roast his former costar, he said, "I am here because onscreen and off, I feel nothing but love for the great Samuel L. Jackson. At least for tonight that mysterious 'L' stands for 'Love,' man love — and there's nothing wrong with it." Kerry Washington and Denzel Washington were also among the celebrity presenters of the night, but we'll have to watch it on Dec. 9 to see who stole the show.
