Later this month Samuel L. Jackson will show his support for President Obama through a new clip based off of his 2011 viral video, Go the F--k to Sleep.

According to the New York Post, the Avengers star will film the PSA this week encouraging voters to simply “Wake the f--k up, Vote for Obama!”

Funded by the Jewish Council for Education and Research Super PAC, Jackson will be assisted by “Go the F--k to Sleep” author Adam Mansbach, who is writing the clip’s script.

The actor’s support for Obama comes as no surprise to fans. Earlier this year he opened up to Ebony magazine stating that his 2008 vote for the president was based on the fact that; “he was black. Cause that’s why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them."

Samuel L. Jackson’s Obama clip is currently scheduled to appear on YouTube on September 24.
