In most of Quentin Tarantino’s films, the director has chosen to appear on screen rather than just behind it. And in his new film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, fans are desperate to find out the same thing. But will the director appear on screen in Once Upon A Time in Hollywood?
The short answer is yes, he does. However, unlike most of his cameos, there’s a small difference.
This time Tarantino is not physically seen on screen but instead just his voice his heard.
In the post credit scene Rick Dalton, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, is seen filming a TV commercial for Red Apple Cigarettes.
Off screen, a director is heard giving Dalton advice on how best to sell the cigarettes – and that voice is Tarantino’s.
Fans may not only recognise the voice of Tarantino, but also the cigarette brand Dalton is selling, as these have also made cameo appearances in his films.
Most famously, Uma Thurman’s characters Mia and The Bride in Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill have been seen either smoking, holding the packet or walking past billboards for the famed brand.
They have also showed up as early as Reservoir Dogs, Tarantino’s first film, where his character Mr Brown had them stashed in his car.
