Actor Samuel L. Jackson will star in an upcoming ad called 'Wake the f--k up, Vote for Obama'. The YouTube spot, supporting President Obama’s re-election bid, was paid for by the Jewish Council for Education and Research Super PAC.
The online ad is expected to air Sept. 24.
Jackson is known for speaking a few choice vulgarities, in films and in his extracurricular activities. Reports write the political ad is poking fun of Jackson’s viral video “Go the F--k to Sleep,” where The Avengers actor narrates a children’s book written by Adam Mansbach.
The PAC responsible for Jackson's ad have spent money on Hollywood celebs going crass in their support for Obama. Earlier this year, the PAC supported an ad of comedian Sarah Silverman offering “free lesbian sex” to billionaire Sheldon Adelson if he stopped supporting GOP nominee Mitt Romney.
Earlier this year, Jackson made a surprising statement to Ebony magazine, saying he voted for Obama in 2008 "because he was black."
Jackson will next been in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained and the RoboCop remake.
