Hypothesis: Samuel L. Jackson is amazing.
Evidence: In addition to his movies, and other lists EW has compiled, we’re impressed by his recent tweeting of the Olympics, where the actor has been giving his off-the-cuff reactions to the events along with — of course — some signature color commentary.
Jackson’s Team USA pride couldn’t hide a bit of glee when other countries faltered. “OK, s— that makes us feel good. That Chinese gymnast FACEPLANTED! Another reason it’s not just good enuf to compete!”
You know what? Do yourself a favor and just read his whole feed.
Based on his reaction to the 400 individual medley — ” ‘I just gotta move on’, prophetic words by Michael Phelps. LOCTE SMOKED DAT ASS!!! Not even Bronze!” — I can’t wait to hear his take on the next Lochte/Phelps showdown in the 200 IM.
