Jack is a word we that we find associates to Jupiter via sync. Above on the left is a scene from Easy A, that I just loved, where Emma Stone calls Tom Cruise a higher power. On the right is Cruise (Jack Reacher) as Ethan Hunt using the code name "Jupiter" in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. Tom Cruise is Jupiter (the Roman version of the Greek God Zeus), the highest of all powers as King of the Gods.
Samuel L. Jackson, born Dec 21, is Zeus (the Greek version of the Roman God Jupiter) in Die Hard: With a Vengeance.
Samuel also happens to be in Winnipeg right now shooting a film called "Reasonable Doubt".
(This link only mentions that he will be coming but we have seen Instagram & Facebook photos of him chilling out here with peeps.)
21 is also resonates Jack as Blackjack.
The film was released on 16 March 1979, 12 days before the Three Mile Island nuclear accident in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. Coincidentally, in the film, physicist Dr. Elliott Lowell (Donald Hotton) says that the China Syndrome would render "an area the size of Pennsylvania" permanently uninhabitable. While some credit the accident's timing in helping to sell tickets, the studio attempted to avoid appearing as if it were exploiting the accident, which included pulling the film from some theaters.
This is an extreme example of the everyday reality of sync.

Thinking about this for a second we realize that another famous "wolf man" is Jack Nicholson in Wolf.
a pivotal scene in The Color of Money with a wonderfully brash & cocky Tom Cruise sees him shooting pool to Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London".
Further a wolf is Canis Lupus and if something is Lupine it is wolf like.
Director Ang Lee's Tiger attraction.
Read this in Ebert's great review of Life of Pi (opens today):
The story begins in a small family zoo in Pondichery, India, where the boy christened Piscine is raised. Piscine translates from French to English as "swimming pool," but in an India where many more speak English than French, his playmates of course nickname him "pee." Determined to put an end to this, he adopts the name "Pi,"
The zoo goes broke, and Pi's father puts his family and a few valuable animals on a ship bound for Canada.
Pi's name comes from pool and he is lost in the greatest pool after traveling to Canada.
In the trailer we hear Pi say: ""when my family chose to move our zoo half way around the world, that is when my greatest journey began..".
