Attendees at the Bongo's Bingo event in Glasgow at the weekend were shocked to find Hollywood legend Samuel L Jackson joining the bingo fun.
The 74-year-old actor, famous for his “motherf*cker” line, was filming in Glasgow and arrived unannounced at the popular bingo event at the city's SWG3 on April Fool's Day.
Jackson is currently in Scotland filming a new thriller called Damaged.
Jackson is in Scotland shooting a movie with Vincent Cassel about a Chicago detective who travels to Scotland to investigate a spate of murders he investigated five years earlier.
Footage emerged on Social media showing the Pulp Fiction star laughing and enjoying a drag act at the bingo event from the sidelines.

“Still find it funny that Samuel L Jackson just randomly showed up at my work for Bongo's Bingo.”
