Is Charles Bronson Tarantino's favourite?


#1

Hell yeah! Among many other movie references,he is the most mentioned actor(and the films he starred).

His name popped out from every movie he made so far,he is always put in a juicy dialogue-Quentin loves him and we love him too :stuck_out_tongue:

Bronson is mentioned in the Kill Bill end credits, because he died a few weeks/months before the film was finished.

I wouldn’t go so far as to say Charles Bronson is Quentin Tarantino’s definite favourite actor. Just like he hasn’t got a definite favourite film, I’d assume he takes the same position regarding his favourite actor. Afterall, each have their own qualities!!





Apparently when Tarantino was in Australia doing Kill Bill press, some journalists asked him who his favorite Australian actor was. Without hesitation Tarantino named John Jarratt.

QT on the role of Max Cherry:

…I was hopping back and forth between four actors that could do the movie. Paul Newman, Gene Hackman, Robert Forster, and the other one was John Saxon. But in my heart of hearts, I knew it was Robert Forster…

Those very actors he mentioned in that quote, he has also mentioned in many other interviews. It would appear that he is also a big Hackman fan. Also, QT is a huge Saxon fan. In addition to having him star in From Dusk Till Dawn, I have a feeling QT had something to do with his part in the Grave Danger episode of CSI.





"…I wrote that Texas ranger role just for Michael Parks, for his lazy Texas drawl. He’s always been one of my favorite actors in the world…"

So yes, Charles Bronson is one of QT’s favourite, going from the dialogue inserts to the Mr. Majestyk poster in Volume 2. But to say he is his favourite actor would be pushing it a little. QT shows love for everyone.
