by PTI Veteran actor Samuel L Jackson to star in Unicorn Store.

Los Angeles: Veteran actor Samuel L Jackson says he was not happy to learn that Brie Larson wanted to cast Bill Murray in Unicorn Store so he asked for a part himself. The Oscar-winning actress is making her directorial debut with the upcoming comedy, reported Vanity Fair. "(I asked her) 'So do you really think Bill Murray is a better actor than I am?' I pretty much asked her for the part," Jackson says. The 68-year-old actor says he was impressed by Larson's abilities behind the camera. "She was well prepared and co-operative. She knew why she hired me. She allowed me to bring a lot of different things to the part and have as much fun as I wanted to have," he says.
