James Marsden (Westworld, X-Men) and Julia Butters (American Housewife) are the latest actors to join Quentin Tarantino's new film Once Upon a Time In Hollywood. The director has put together quite an incredible cast for this film!
They will join Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Burt Reynolds, Timothy Olyphant, Michael Madsen and Tim Roth. Some of the supporting cast members include Luke Perry, Damian Lewis, Emile Hirsch, Dakota Fanning, Clifton Collins Jr., Keith Jefferson and Nicholas Hammond. It was already recently announced that Al Pacino was cast in the movie!
Tarantino's new film has been described as a Pulp Fiction-like film that centers on characters around Los Angeles in the summer of 1969. The Manson Family murders serve as a backdrop to the story, which follows the two lead characters Rick Dalton (DiCaprio), a former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbor…Sharon Tate, who will be played by Robbie.
Lewis will play Steve McQueen; Fanning is set as Squeaky Fromme, the Manson follower who later tried to assassinate President Gerald Ford; Hammond will play director Sam Wanamaker; and Hirsch is playing Jay Sebring, the Hollywood hairstylist who was one of four victims in the Tate murders. As for Perry, he will play Scotty Lancer, Collins will play Ernesto The Mexican Vaquero, Keith Jefferson is Land Pirate Keith, and Pacino is playing Marvin Schwarz, who will be DiCaprio’s character’s agent in the story.
There's no information on who Marsden and Butter will be playing. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will be released on August 9th, 2019.
