“The two characters that I would really like to explore more are Jules and Vincent. When we were mixing the movie, the guy who’s the mixer laughed so much at Jules and Vincent – “They’re so f**kin’ funny.” It’s really rare when you find people who work good together and actually the last time I saw two actors who were just a ripping comedy team was Tim (Roth) and Gary (Oldman) in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. They fucking played like a house on fire, and I was telling Tim, “You guys should do a comedy. Don’t do a f**kin’ drama. I don’t wanna see Murder in the First, I wanna see you guys as a great comedy team.”
“To tell you the truth, if I had rewritten the script, Gary and Tim could have played Jules and Vincent, just played two English guys.”
- Quentin Tarantino
1) How do you think that casting would've played out?
For me, personally, it's interesting to think about...but the film would not have the same mojo. Sam and John are so iconic in these roles, I can't imagine anyone else being as effective. But, it is funny to think about Roth and Oldman debating about whether a foot massage is in the same ball park as fucking.
2) I need to check out Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.
