Quentin Tarantino is a HUGE fan of Jennifer Lawrence, but decided NOT to cast her in his new movie. So what’s the deal?
A couple months ago J.Law was in contention for a phenomenal role as an insane criminal en route to the gallows in Tarantino’s new western The Hateful Eight. But, she didn’t snag the role. QT said:
“When I was looking for Daisy, I could have seen Jennifer Lawrence doing a good job with the role. I’m a very big fan of hers. I think she could end up being another little Bette Davis if she keeps on going the way she’s going. I think her work with David O. Russell is very reminiscent of William Wyler and Bette Davis’s.”
That being said…
“Daisy should be a little older. She should fit in with the guys. Jennifer Jason Leigh came in and was really good. She went for a couple of things that other people just kind of playacted. She had to act like she got shot, and she just screamed bloody murder. I kept remembering Jennifer’s bloodcurdling scream. If it had happened in a house, somebody would have called the cops.”
So who snagged it? Amber Tamblyn originated the role of Daisy Domergue during the staged live reading, but it went to Single White Female star Jennifer Jason Leigh, who is gonna KILL IT.
What do you think of JLaw being passed over?
