Quentin Tarantino weighs in on requirements for lead actor for his last movie
Quentin Tarantino has revealed that he does not 'want to cast a British actor' in his final movie
Quentin Tarantino weighed in on the requirements for leading actor for his last film The Movie Critic, while revealing that he doesn’t want to cast any British actor.
Tarantino, 60, is known for his remarkable direction on some of the hit Hollywood movies like Pulp Fiction, Inglorious Basterds, and Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
As he prepares for the preproduction of his next and last film, The Movie Critic, Tarantino what he's looking for in his lead actor.
During his latest interview with Deadline, Tarantino said, “no. The truth of the matter is, yes, obviously, a Brit could pull it off, but I don’t want to cast a Brit. Obviously, nothing against the Brits, but we’re living in a really weird time now.”
“I think when people look back on this era of cinema and it’s just all these British actors pretending to be Americans and all these Australian actors pretending to be Americans, it’s like phantoms. Nobody is acting in their own voice,” he added.
The director further noted, “we just happen to be in an era of really, really good British actors who for the most part can pull it off. By the way, I’m not being xenophobic.”
He also added, “the Brits would have a hell of a lot more problems if a bunch of American actors came over there with their Dick Van Dyke [Mary Poppins] accents playing famous Brits. They don’t want to see that expletive.”
