Samuel L. Jackson advocated for social distancing during a video chat interview on the March 31 installment of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” in the most Samuel L. Jackson way, which means a lot of expletives were used. Jackson teamed up with writer Adam Mansbach to put a new spin on the author’s bestselling children’s book “Go the F*ck to Sleep.” Jackson said to Kimmel, “[Adam and I] talked about what we could do remind people of social distancing and where we are in these times now. So he wrote a new poem, I read it, and we want to present it to the public right now.”
The poem is appropriately titled “Stay the F*ck at Home,” and it finds Jackson urging “motherf*ckers” around the world to stay inside and practice social distancing and self-isolation. Jackson reads: “Now, technically, I’m not a doctor/ but, motherfucker, listen when I read a poem/ So, here I am, Sam fuckin’ Jackson/ imploring you, keep your ass at home.”
Another memorable line from the poem: “The ‘rona is spreading/ This shit is no joke/ It’s no time to work or roam/ The way you can fight it/ is simple, my friends/ Just stay the fuck at home.”
Jackson most recently starred in the period drama “The Banker,” now streaming on Apple TV+. The actor was set to head out on a publicity tour later this month to begin promoting his role in the upcoming “Saw” reboot, “Spiral,” which Lionsgate had originally planned to open nationwide May 15. The studio has since delayed the movie indefinitely. Jackson stars opposite Chris Rock and Max Minghella in the horror film, which marks the return of “Saw II” and “Saw III” writer-director Darren Lynn Bousman to the “Saw” franchise.
Jackson’s other Lionsgate summer release, “The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard,” remains on the schedule for August 28, 2020. The movie is a sequel to the 2017 action comedy “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” and re-teams Jackson with Ryan Reynolds and Salma Hayek. The original film’s screenwriter Tom O’Connor and director Patrick Hughes are also behind the sequel.

For some reason, there are still some people in the United States who think they don’t need to be cautious about how often they leave their homes when the coronavirus pandemic is spreading across the country. That’s why every week maybe even every other day, there’s a new PSA from various famous faces providing some sound, valuable advice to Americans about how to behave during this delicate and dangerous time for the world. And the latest additions are absolutely perfect.
Larry David calls out some of “the idiots out there” who aren’t staying home, and by association, putting old old, grumpy guys like the Curb Your Enthusiasm star at risk. Meanwhile, Samuel L. Jackson takes a more commanding approach by reading a book called Stay the F- Home, a variation on Adam Mansbach‘s best-selling book Go the F- to Sleep, which the Pulp Fiction star previously read online too.

First up, in a video from the Office of the Governor of California on Twtter, Larry David said
“Basically want to address the idiots out there — and you know who you are. You’re going out — I don’t know what you’re doing. You’re socializing too close, it’s not good.”
It’s especially not good for Larry David, because his older age puts him at a higher risk, like a lot of other elderly citizens out there. The comedian elaborated as only he could:
“You’re hurting old people like me — well, not me. I have nothing to do with you. I’ll never see you. But, you know, other — let’s say, other old people who might be your relatives! Who the hell knows.”
In case you needed a reminder of just how relieving it is to not have any plans outside of the house to worry about, David finishes up by reiterating that “nothing good ever happens going out of the house.” And at this specific point in time, the outside world is “not a good place to be.”
