With Academy Award nominee Margot Robbie officially on board – who confirmed her involvement during a recent media junket – Quentin Tarantino has now turned his attention to filling out the remainder of the cast for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and boy, has he ever been keeping busy.
Last month, the two-time Academy Award-winning filmmaker recruited Golden Globe winner Damian Lewis (Homeland), Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild) and Dakota Fanning (War of the Worlds), before adding Best Actor winner Al Pacino a day later. Suffice it to say, Tarantino has undoubtedly lined-up an all-star cast for his ninth feature.
Long-serving collaborators Kurt Russell (The Hateful Eight, Death Proof), Tim Roth (Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs), and Michael Madsen (Kill Bill) also joined the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and of course, Robbie, in June. And although it seemed like Tarantino had filled out the rest of his Once Upon a Time in Hollywood ensemble, today brought word of even more talent joining the ranks.
According to Deadline, the director has rounded out his troupe by adding ten, yes, you read that correctly, ten, performers to the roster for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. They are, in no particular order, Spencer Garrett, Martin Kove, James Remar, Brenda Vaccaro, Nichole Galicia, Mike Moh, Craig Stark, Marco Rodriguez, Ramon Franco and Raul Cardona.
Set in 1969 Los Angeles, Once Upon a time in Hollywood will shadow The Wolf of Wall Street’s male lead, Leonardo DiCaprio, as TV western actor Rick Dalton and the invisible man himself, Brad Pitt, as Cliff Booth, his stunt double, while they “embark on an odyssey to make a name for themselves” during the time of the Charles Manson murders. Details beyond that remain scarce, but with casting now seemingly complete, we should learn more soon.
