There are many patterns in Quentin Tarantino’s body of work, from obsessive shots of female feet to obscure pop culture references.

One of the director’s most noticeable trends across his seven films to date, however, from 1992’s Reservoir Dogs to 2009’s Inglorious Basterds, is his knack for casting actors who’ve been lacking in success and recognition for many years, bringing them back to the forefront of public attention. Such a tactic resurrected the career of John Travolta, who had all but faded into obscurity when Tarantino cast him in the role of Vincent Vega in Pulp Fiction, but  who has remained a regular fixture on cinema screens to this day since.

The director’s latest film, Django Unchained, scheduled for release on Christmas Day, shows no sign of breaking the trend, with its cast including names of yesteryear such as The WarriorsJames Remar and Miami Vice »
