Quentin Tarantino

  1. Steve Buscemi, Reservoir Dogs, 1991.
  2. Robert Downey Jr, Natural Born Killers, 1993.     Quentin always intended to play the vile TV news anchorWayneGayle if and when the script ever got picked up. By the time it was - NBK going to the JFK-director Oliver Stone - Tarantino was too important to mess around with a role in another's version of one of his earliestscenarios.
  3. Eric Stoltz, Pulp Fiction, 1994.    Who should he play? Jimmie or Lance?Had to be Jimmie so that Quentincould be behind the camera, calling the shots forMia's overdose being dealt with by Lance.
  4. Stan Lee, Mallrats, 1995.     QT was all set to be Marvel’s Stan The Man for auteur pal Kevin Smith.Until Stan decided he’d be a far better Stan.
  5. Danny Trejo, Once Upon A Time In Mexico, 2003.    Director pal Robert Rodriguez wrote Cucuy for his pal (he had suggested the title, after all) but Tarantinowas delayed on the everlasting Kill Bill.
  6. Gordon Liu (Chia Hui Liu), Kill Bill Vol 2, 2003.     Quentin considered playing kung fu master Pei Mei when his action-choreographer Woo-ping Yuen could not.   In all, Liu had three roles in the Bill kills.
  7. Rick Hoffman, Hostel, 2005.    Director pal Eli Roth considered QT for the US Client but thenfigured that having both QT and Takashi Miike visit the torture house would going too far. For hiswar spoof, Inglourious Basterds, 2008, Tarantino made Roth into a crazed  killer of Nazis.
  8. Eric Balfour, Hell Ride, 2008.    Producer Tarantino was originally dueto be also actor Tarantino, playing Comanche. But like he says, he’s lazy.
  9. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kill Shot, 2008.    Rather than direct a second Elmore Leropnard pulp, Tarantino agreed in 2002 to simply act - alongside his Jackie Brown star, Robert De Niro.    For  UK director Tony Scott, who had, bien sur, made Tarantino’s script of True Romance, 1993.   Gordon-Levitt, from 3rd Rock From The Sun, TV, 1996-2001, is the grandson of blacklisted Hollywood director Michael Gordon.
  10. Fred Armisen, The Smurfs, 2010.     QT was a favourite to voice Brainy Smurf in the first of a planned trilogy about theBelgian bluedwarfs. However, as the Sony Pictures Animation chief, Hannah Minghella (daughter of director Anthony Minghella), commented: “There were conversations about it, but it didn't work out.”
  11. Johnny Depp, Tusk, 2013.     Kevin Smith tells all.  “Since Quentin likes to act (and since he had dug Red State), I figured I'd ask him to join me on the cinematic walrus hunt [as] the relentless French-Canadian cop on the trail of a monster-maker I wanted Quentin to play the relentless French Canadian cop on the trail of a monster-maker… and speak like Les Habitants! I'd heard him do an Australian accent in Django Unchained, so I was hoping he might want to ham it up as a Quebecois as well. Then,  the weirdest thing happened: Quentin passed … he dug the script and couldn't wait to watch Michael Parks let loose his internal Kraken, but he had no interest in acting at the moment. It was a bummer, as having Q in the mix would’ve been poetic. Without him, I would need someone equally genius to play Guy Lapointe - our French-Canadian Javert.”
