SAMUEL L. JACKSON wishes he had starred in hit musical movie MAMMA MIA! - because he's a huge Abba fan.
The Pulp Fiction actor wasn't aware the film was in production until it was completed, even though his filmmaker friend Phyllida Lloyd directed it.
And he's upset he missed out on a role in the Abba-themed musical - insisting he would have begged for a part if he had known about the project.
Jackson says, "I missed that because a friend of mine actually directed Mamma Mia! And I didn't know it until I saw her last year at the British Film Awards and they won all of these awards. I would have called to be in Mamma Mia! I'm a huge Abba fan."
