LOOK: Quentin Tarantino’s original Pulp fiction cast wish list leaked online

Quentin Tarantino’s cult hit Pulp Fiction could have looked very different if his original ‘actor wish list’ was granted.

The first typed-up list of his recommendations found its way to the top of Reddit today and judging from a quick scan it shows that John Travolta was his second choice for the role of Vincent.

A strong choice, but a second choice.

Reservoir Dogs actor Michael Madsen was his first.
