LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) – Actor Samuel L. Jackson is starring in a video promoting a Pennsylvania company’s crowdfunding campaign.

LNP reports (http://bit.ly/1TPKXTy ) Lancaster county-based Bollman Hat Co. is seeking to raise $100,000 to go toward moving the production of one of its most popular Kangol hats from China to its Adamstown headquarters.

The move could cost at least $1 million. The company has received $160,000 in state grants and tax credits in August. It has already spent $350,000 of its own money.

Bollman president and chief executive officer Don Rongione says the company has had an ongoing relationship with Jackson over the years. Jackson is one of several celebrities, including Madonna and Brad Pitt, who wear the company’s Kangol wool cap called the “504.”

Rongione says Jackson agreed to do the video for free.
