When Samuel L. Jackson was auditioning for the role of Jules Winnfield in Pulp Fiction, Quentin Taranto was so late that Jackson got hungry and left to go get some lunch. By the time he returned, he was so angry at Taratino’s tardiness that he walked into the audition with the burger and shake in hand.
“Me and Quentin were sitting on the couch, and he walked in and just started sipping that shake and biting that burger and looking at all of us. I was scared to death. […] His eyes were popping out of his head. And he just stole the part,” producer Richard Gladstein recalls.
