He’s Also an Actor
Believe it or not, Tarantino has more acting credits than directing ones. To name a few: Desperado (pick-up guy), Grindhouse (Warren), Planet Terror, Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained and Death Proof . He even played an Elvis impersonator in the comedy show The Golden Girls . And when he attended acting classes at the James Best Theater Company, he met some people who would later appear in his movies.
Tarantino seems to like to feature many of the same actors throughout his films, but Samuel L. Jackson is the most recognizable. He’s acted in five of his films so far.
