Well, the answer is here.

According to Deadline, Samuel L. Jackson has joined the cast of Garfield as Garfield’s father, Vic, a new character invented specifically to convolute the idea of a lazy cat that likes lasagna and hates Mondays. Finally, Garfield’s origins will be revealed! You’ll meet his dad! Samuel L. Jackson!
