samuel l jackson getty 2012 Summer Olympics: Is Samuel L. Jackson the world's biggest Olympics fan?Many are already calling this the first true social media Olympics, as evidenced by NBC’s Instagram, Facebook updates from athletes like John Orozco and enough Twitter-based expulsions to show the good, the bad and the ugly of the medium. But if you haven’t been following the Tweets of the highest-grossing movie star of all time, well, you’re missing out on something special.

Actor Samuel L. Jackson has proven himself to be a very enthusiastic Olympics fan – and staying true to his on-screen persona, he has been doing it with some very colorful language.

“BUTTAFUQQINFLY WORLD RECORD!!!! Dayummmm! Go USA!” Jackson tweets, in response to Dana Vollmer‘s 100-meter butterfly record time of 55.98 seconds, shaving 0.08 off the previous world record.

But the “Snakes on a Plane” star’s exuberance isn’t focused solely on Americans, and his spelling variations on the F-word seem to also know no bounds. “GB Cyclists!!! BIPFOUKKENCYCLIN BRILLIANCE! Go Host Nation!” he writes in regards to Brits Victoria Pendleton and Jessica Varnish setting a world record in qualifying for track cycling.  

He also isn’t afraid to scream out when he sees something unfair: “That was NOT a handstand, more like a handSplit! UK gets JACKED by judges!” he tweets, just one of several comments on what he sees as bad officiating.

Apparently, Sam Jackson has a lot of free time on his hands when he isn’t putting out what feels like 10 movies a year – indeed, he has commented on everything from archery and handball to soccer and water polo, often commenting on both the women’s and men’s section of the events. He’s been known to live-tweet the Olympics as often as five or more times an hour, and his 1.17 million followers seem to be enjoying watching the Games with a foul-mouthed, relentlessly blunt legend at their side.

From “WHHHOOOOO! Women’s 4X 200 Beatdown!! Lovin’ it!, go USA!!” to “Strategy My A**! World Class WUSSES!!!” Samuel L. Jackson seems to have captured the unbridled enthusiasm of so many Olympics viewers.

So the question isn’t is this guy for real but instead: What would it take to get him a commentator spot for the next Olympics?
