[ # ] Quentin Tarantino didn’t impress Samuel L Jackson the first time they met
December 19th, 2012 under Jimmy Kimmel, Samuel L Jackson



Before Samuel L Jackson made some movie called Pulp Fiction with Quentin Tarantino, he auditioned for the director for another movie he did called Reservoir Dogs and didn’t get the part. Jules Winnfield told Jimmy Kimmel that when he walked into the audition he was told he would be reading with Harvey Keitel and Tim Roth, but only QT and his producing partner Lawrence Bender were in the room. At the time he didn’t know who they were thus his audition with them did not go that well. When he was done he walked out thinking those dudes suck. Then a little while later he saw the movie being screened at Sundance and he told QT that he liked the movie. Then QT asked him how he liked the guy who got his part and Jackson said, “Well I’m sure it would’ve been a better movie with me in it.” And QT said, “Don’t worry, I’m writing something for you,” and that something was Pulp Fiction. So even though their first meeting did not go over so well, as we all know the rest is cinematic history with Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill Vol 1 and 2, Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained.
Jackson also talked about his f*cking, bullsh!t appearance on Saturday Night Love, how his daughter had issues with cursing because of him being her father and that she directed his actual funny Funny or Die skit The Sad-Off! So watch the full interview from the ABC late night show because everything that comes out of his mouth is always interesting to hear.
