ORDINARY PEOPLE in QT'S FILMS


#1

One thing about Quentin’s films I like is that he casts ordinary people like:



Reservoir Dogs - His acting coach (who also got hit in PULP FICTION)



PULP FICTION - Zed and his homeboy along with the GIMP



JACKIE BROWN - Ordell’s young phillie from WATTS



KILL BILL - The dude digging up Paula Schultz for Budd


#2

what do you mean ordinary people? Zed is a real actor.



ever seen The Mask? yeah he was in it.


#3

well i like how the ordinary people in his movies look real instead of being beautiful, i.e. the people who gather round butch and marcellus’ car crash. but i dunno bout the people you just said?



is the acting coach the girl who gets shot by marcellus (the same girl who shot mr orange in reservoir dogs)? coz i thought his acting coach was a guy since lee donowitz was based on him

Yeah the Zed guy had also a small part in Usual Suspects and Training Day. He’s a cool cat. If anything, Pulp Fiction featured QT’s acting teacher, who played Butch’s mom. She also played the hostage in FDTD.

That was Tim Roth’s American accent coach…she probably deserved to get shot because that was one of the worst American accents I’ve ever heard in a movie. ;D
