Samuel L. Jackson Dared Tim Roth to Curse on Live TV When He Lost at the Oscars

Samuel L. Jackson Dared Tim Roth to Curse on Live TV When He Lost at the Oscars
Amidst chatter about that new Quentin Tarantino film arriving later this year, one of the director’s past and future collaborators took an opportunity to reflect on a missed opportunity. Tim Roth, perhaps best known for his appearances in Tarantino’s “Reservoir Dogs” and “Pulp Fiction,” was nominated for an Oscar for his role in the 1995 adaptation of “Rob Roy.” On the most recent edition of “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” Roth explained that Samuel L. Jackson dared him to react a certain way if he didn’t end up winning.

“I’m sitting there and just before it comes up, Sam Jackson turns around at me and says, ‘Now, Tim. When you lose, say ‘Motherfucker!'” Roth said. With the camera still on all five nominees, viewers would be able to see him mouth the word.

“I missed that, and I always regretted that,” Roth added.

The Significant Role Charles Manson Plays in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Quentin Tarantino doesn't need an introduction - he's the auteur who brought us gratuitously gory films such as Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, and Django Unchained. Now, he's onto his ninth film with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, a $100 million project that convinced even Leonardo DiCaprio to take a hefty pay cut. Since Tarantino only plans to make 10 movies, this is certainly going to be a treat, boasting a cast of the fine actors to prove it. In the movie, the writer-director crafts a narrative that touches upon one of the most disturbing murders in Hollywood history - that of celebrity Sharon Tate under the orders of Charles Manson.

Fictional Elements

The Manson murders won't be the main focus of the plot, which is still being kept under wraps. But we'll certainly see everyone involved in the case, including Tate (Margot Robbie), Manson (Damon Herriman), Manson's followers, and a handful of '60s celebrities.

We’re just a few weeks away from the annual unveiling of the Cannes Film Festival lineup, and, as ever, speculation is running high about what will and won’t strut down the Croisette from May 14-25. Also as usual, nothing is set in stone until fest chief Thierry Frémaux makes the announcement.

Fantastic First Trailer for Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

Here it is! The first trailer has been released for the ninth film of director Quentin Tarantino, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and it looks awesome! As you’ll see, it’s classic Tarantino.

The movie is set in La in the summer of 1969, it follows a time in the lives of an actor (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double (Brad Pitt), and then, of course, there’s the Manson Family who is part of the haunting backdrop of the story, along with their potential victim Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie).

This is a lively and upbeat trailer and one of my favorite aspects of it was actor Mike Moh, who seems to perfectly play Bruce Lee. We even get to see a little sparing between he and Pitt’s character. It’s a great little scene!

This movie has such an incredibly impressive cast, and I can’t wait to see it!

Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Trailer Drops
The first look at “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is finally here, and Quentin Tarantino is taking audiences back to the height of hippie Hollywood.

Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, the footage features a montage of Tinseltown in the late 1960s. The duo play Rick Dalton and Cliff Booth, a washed-up actor and his long-time stunt double.

“Actors are required to do a lot of dangerous stuff,” DiCaprio’s character trailer explains in the trailer. “Cliff, here, is meant to help carry the load.”

Pitt’s Cliff Booth seconds that notion. “What, carrying his load? Yeah, that’s about right.”

Tarantino, who wrote the script and will also direct and produce the movie, was inspired by his own upbringing in the midst of La’s hippie-crazed counterculture. “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is set in 1969 Hollywood, a year that saw the rise of Charles Manson’s cult.

Here’s Why ‘Pulp Fiction’ Wasn’t Used When De-Aging Samuel L Jackson in ‘Captain Marvel’

Here’s Why ‘Pulp Fiction’ Wasn’t Used When De-Aging Samuel L Jackson in ‘Captain Marvel’
In capturing a young, mid-’90s era Samuel L. Jackson for “Captain Marvel,” the team at Lola VFX started by watching his classics of that time: “Jurassic Park,” “Die Hard: With a Vengeance,” and most notably, “Pulp Fiction.”

Even though Quentin Tarantino’s film came out in 1994, just a year before when “Captain Marvel” is set, the de-aged Nick Fury is not based on Jackson’s look as Jules Winnfield, and there’s a good reason why.

“We had to throw out ‘Pulp Fiction’ almost immediately just because of the facial hair,” Trent Claus, the visual effects supervisor at Lola told TheWrap. “It blocked so much of the reference that we needed, it wasn’t very useful.”

Jonathan Toubin on Dick Dale: ‘His Sound Showed the Promise of What American Music Can Be’

Like many of my generation, I first got hip to “Miserlou” via Agent Orange’s punked-up cover of it on their iconic 1981 Orange County punk LP Living in Darkness. I bought the record to hear their classic “Bloodstains,” but the Dick Dale cover became my favorite track on the album. And, like every human who encounters Dale’s electrified interpretation of the Eastern Mediterranean folk melody for the first time, I had my mind blown when I heard the 1962 original
