He may be a scholar, but is he a gentleman?
F**king register to vote, says Samuel L. Jackson. The swear-happy actor and producer, 71, is offering to teach an epic, multi-language course on the art of cursing, if enough people double-check that they’re registered to vote, The New York Post reports.
“Listen up — if 2,500 of you click a voting action below to make sure that you’re #GoodToVote, I will teach you to swear in 15 different languages,” Jackson tweeted on Monday, September 14.
- Register to vote,
- Check your registration status, and
- Make your “vote plan.”
Jackson is well-known for being among the Hollywood actors with the most prolifically dirty onscreen mouths—although a survey conducted earlier this year found that The Wolf of Wall Street star Jonah Hill beat Jackson for the top slot, according to the Post. While Jackson has sworn onscreen 301 times in his career, Hill has sworn 376 — mostly in the swear-heavy Martin Scorsese flick.
In addition to cussing on-screen and using obscenities to encourage Americans to vote, Jackson also produced a profane PSA in April. “Stay the f ** k home,” the Pulp Fiction actor said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in response to quarantine orders designed to help flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic.
He also riffed on the book Go the F ** k to Sleep during the appearance, presenting the 2011 kids bedtime story as a public order that people should not leave their homes, including the verse:
“Stay the f ** k at home
Corona is spreading; this s -** t is no joke
It’s no time to work or roam
The way you can fight it is simple, my friends
Just stay the f -** k at home
