By no means an original thought, and probably not what we should teach our children but still… if Samuel L Jackson was presiding over a Master Class in Cussing, I’d be there in a minute. I still laugh every time I think of his “foot massage” exchange with John Travolta in Pulp Fiction.
“Look, just because I wouldn"t give no man a foot massage, don"t make it right for Marsellus to throw Antwan off a building into a glass-motherf*ckin-house, f7ckin" up the way the n***** talks. That ain"t right, man. Motherf-cker do that to me, he better paralyze my ass, "cause I"d kill"a motherf-cker.”
Kills me every time.
And it killed me today watching his clip – Sam Jackson arriving at Cedars to visit Owen Wilson. When greeted by the paps, Sam replied:
“I came to visit Owen Wilson, get the f*ck away from me, aright?”
And it’s the way he says it, you know? Without breaking a stride, sauntering along…it could have been a scene from any one of his movies. Mtherf8cker is just that cool.
Click here for the clip.
As for what Sam’s been working on lately – Resurrecting the Champ is in theatres now, headed straight to DVD, and apparently he’s trying to talk his way into the new Indiana Jones movie, only to stay ahead of Harrison Ford on the list of top box office drawing actors. He also joked that George Lucas has been avoiding his calls:
“George said, ‘Well, if you wanna stay in front of Harrison then we’ve got to figure out a way to get you in Raiders (of The Lost Ark).’ “So now they’re shooting Raiders and I’ve been calling him; he won’t return my calls. Can you believethat? He’s dogging me. “All I want to do is run across screen, I don’t have to say anything. I just wanna run through the movie, get my name in the credits, so I can stay in front of Harrison.”
It would totally be a better movie with him in it, non?
PS. It is well known Sam Jackson"s battle with addiction. He overdosed at one point and was sent to rehab. Upon successful completion, he scored his now breakthrough (and legendary) role in Jungle Fever.
Owen Wilson has good friends.
