Samuel L. Jackson is a particularly prolific actor. He’s a Spike Lee and Quentin Tarantino common, an MCU staple, and even a Star Wars alum. And that’s to not point out the handfuls of movies he’s popped up in throughout all genres. However what do you consider while you hear the title Samuel L. Jackson? Nick Fury, lately. Possibly even Pulp Fiction. However let’s be actual, swearing undoubtedly sits close to the highest of the checklist. He’s only a sensible, famously sweary actor.
Throughout an look on The Tonight Present Starring Jimmy Fallon to advertise his new present The Final Days of Ptolemy Gray the host talked about on-screen swearing. Extra particularly, an inventory he discovered breaking down who has sworn essentially the most on-screen. And to our befuddlement, Jackson solely ranks third.
Don’t fear, he’s simply as confused as we’re. In accordance with Fallon’s supply Jonah Hill tops the checklist, uttering 376 swears all through his filmography. Leonardo DiCaprio picks up second place with 361. And Jackson takes the bronze with simply 301 swears.
Clearly, Jackson calls “bullsh*t” on this one. For starters, he had a number of follow-up questions Fallon was not ready to reply. Particularly, whether or not these are swears throughout the board or a selected swear phrase. The Tonight Present host admitted in the event that they have been speaking in regards to the mom of all curse phrases, there’s no query Jackson comes out on high. On that notice, what even counts as a swear? There are a number of unkind phrases—language your mother doesn’t need in the home—that don’t fairly attain the official swear threshold. I’d love some clarification on these parameters.
Clearly, rankings like this are simply outdated, given how particular they’re. Hill, DiCaprio, Jackson, and the others making up the checklist are all working actors. So we should add a margin of error to the checklist. Nonetheless, to be fairly sincere, 376 as the highest quantity appears low. To be truthful, Superbad and The Wolf of Wall Road alone in all probability launched Hill to the highest. (Superbad alone has 219 situations of f***, which pales compared to The Wolf of Wall Road‘s whopping 569.) DiCaprio in all probability received The Wolf of Wall Road bump as properly.
Possibly if Kevin Feige let Nick Fury run his mouth a little bit bit once in a while—I feel the Avengers would profit from Fury calling them out on their sh*t once in a while—he’d take the cake. (The little blipped “motherf***er” doesn’t rely because it was technically censored. Sorry, I don’t make the foundations.) Actually one thing to consider for Secret Invasion. If Vincent D’Onofrio can take a man’s head off with a automobile door in Daredevilcoming quickly to Disney+, I feel we will let Nick Fury throw out a f*** or two. (Or mishmash of colourful language as a result of that is Part 4, child. It’s time to let free!)
Samuel L. Jackson has a fame to keep up. And I wager he can attain 400 swears and take the crown.
