Now this is a father you wouldn't want to cross. 

Chat show host Graham Norton persuaded actor Samuel L Jackson to revisit his famous Pulp Fiction speech, which the actor claims he still remembers 20 years on. 

Norton asked Jackson to imagine he was warning off potential suitors of his Jackson's daughter Zoe and he duly delivered - reciting the Ezekiel 25.17 speech backed by a chilling soundtrack. 

The speech, which Jackson gave as hitman Jules Winnfield in Quentin Tarantino's 1994 cult crime classic, was a hugely memorable scene from the movie, not least because of Jackson's impassioned delivery. "And I will strike down upon thee," he said, "With great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."

Yikes. 

Fellow guest Keira Knightley gave a verdict of "smooth", while Norton said: "That's the real deal."
