Samuel L. Jackson Narrates Go the F*** to Sleep

Samuel L. Jackson recorded a six-minute audiobook version of Adam Mansbach‘s profane children’s book for adults, Go the F*** to Sleep.

Currently (as of this June 15 writing) Audible is offering the funny audiobook for free–follow this link to download. Apparently filmmaker and brilliant narrator Werner Herzog will also record an audiobook version.

Jackson explained in the narration: “I was anxious to do the audio read of this book because my agent has twins and he gave me the book and I read it and I fell out laughing. I remember all those times when I did read to my daughter when she was that age. Everybody tells you reading stories will put kids to sleep, but it never works. It didn’t in my house.”

Vanity Fair Imagines Werner Herzog’s Diary

33994.jpgWhat would director Werner Herzog write about his most recent project, a surreal remake set in New Orleans?

Earlier this summer, HarperCollins published the book, “Conquest of the Useless: Reflections from the Making of Fitzcarraldo,” collecting journal entries from the chaotic shooting Herzog’s masterpiece, “Fitzcarraldo.” Vanity Fair took the ball and rolled with it, imagining what the brooding director would write about the “Bad Lieutenant” remake he is currently directing with Nicholas Cage, Val Kilmer, and Eva Mendes.

Check it out: “Cage has been obsessively poring over the laminated safety guide for what could be hours. Even as I write, his angular countenance rises above the seat in front of me like a white devil. With halting, Preslean delivery, he voices alternative scenarios for the pamphlet’s illustrations.” (Herzog photo via)
