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.
According to online sources, a longer list (that has not been posted online as of yet) reveals that Tarantino was after Virginia Madsen for Mia Wallace instead of Uma Thurman while Nicholas Cage was his top choice for Butch rather than Bruce Willis.
