Samuel L. jackson

now I know he tried out for the part of mr. Orange, but who else thinks that he should have gotten the part of Holdaway over Randy Brooks? he was perfect for the part, just perfect, and yet Quentin gave it to Randy Brooks. damn.

No. We’ve kinda been over this, but you being a newbie n’ all, you wouldn’t know. The guy that plays “The Black Dude with the cool hat” is fine. His performance was spot on. The diarrhea line was perfect, and couldn’t have been done funnier by anyone else…





so why do you say Sam should play it? Just because he’s a black person in a QT movie doesn’t mean he should automatically be Sam Jackson!



disagree if you will but I think my homies here know what I’m talking about

it's not "just because he is a black guy" as you said. I just think Samuel L. Jackson would have been a better choice, I persoanlly think he was better suited for the part.

actually i think Sam would have been good for the Mr. Orange part as he tried out for. im just not sure if he could pull off the screaming like tim did. but that story would have been badass being told by Mr. Jackson

Yeah, he woulda been all right, but not as good as Tim. weird, how in pulp fiction, samuel got to point a gun at the guy who beat him for his role!
