"Richard Lawson's portrayal of Fisk reminds me a lot of Samuel L. Jackson."

i agree. his voice is almost identical in some scenes.

This movie is available (legally) from Unfortunately, the resolution is low, but better than nothing. I reviewed it on my blog and link to the download from there: Silver in a Haystack
