“Pulp Fiction” star Samuel L. Jackson told the Los Angeles Times that he has no idea whether Tarantino will cast him in his magnum opus or not.
“I don’t know. He’ll tell me or he won’t tell me,” Jackson said. “I didn’t hear from him at all when he did the Hollywood movie [“Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood”]. Usually, he’ll call me and say he’s doing something and ask how I feel about it.”
Jackson had to fight for his voiceover role in “Inglourious Basterds” and offered to learn French. “Like when he did the Nazi movie, he was like, ‘There’s nothing for you in this,'” Jackson said. ” ‘I can learn how to speak French.’ ‘No, I’m having a French guy.’ So I did the voice-over about celluloid and the movies.
