June 24, 2018

Quentin Tarantino has set Scoot McNairy to join the cast of his Sony Pictures film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. McNairy will play the role of a cowboy named Business Bob Gilbert, a character in the Western TV show from the time period that is an element of a Pulp Fiction-like tapestry of the summer of 1969 in Los Angeles.

McNairy joins a killer cast that is led by Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Timothy Olyphant, Luke Perry, Damian Lewis, Dakota Fanning, Al Pacino, Emile Hirsch, Clifton Collins Jr, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Keith Jefferson and Nicholas Hammond.

McNairy, who starred for four seasons on AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire, currently is filming a lead role in the third season of HBO’s True Detective and most recently was seen starring in Netflix’s Godless. Other upcoming projects include Destroyer opposite Nicole Kidman, The Parts You Lose opposite Mary Elizabeth Winstead and The Sound of Philadelphia with Matthias Schoenaerts and Garrett Hedlund, which he will shoot after this project. He is repped by The Group and WME.

Marsden and Butters join an ever growing cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio (Django Unchained), Brad Pitt (Inglorious Basterds), Margot Robbie (I, Tonya), Burt Reynolds (Smokey and the Bandit), Timothy Olyphant (Santa Clarita Diet), Michael Madsen (Sin City), Tim Roth (Selma) Damian Lewis (Billions), Luke Perry (The Fifth Element), Emile Hirsch (Speed Racer), Dakota Fanning (The Alienist), Clifton Collins (Pacific Rim), Keith Jefferson (The Hateful Eight), Nicholas Hammond (The Sound of Music) and Al Pacino (Scarface).

Set in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood focuses on a male TV actor named Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) who’s had one hit western series and is looking for a way to get into the film business. His sidekick Cliff Booth (Pitt) — who’s also his stunt double — is looking for the same thing. The horrific murder of Sharon Tate (Rick’s neighbor in the film, portrayed by Robbie) and four of her friends by Charles Manson’s cult of followers serves as a backdrop to the main story. The movie is said to be similar to a “Pulp Fiction-like tapestry” that covers a group of characters during that summer.

Just when you thought he was out, they pull him back in. Al Pacino has been cast in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” joining an ever-expanding ensemble led by Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pritt, Margot Robbie, Kurt Russell, Burt Reynolds, and Dakota Fanning.

Quentin Tarantino has been reluctant to refer to the upcoming drama as his “Charles Manson Movie,” but no one else has: Taking place in the summer of 1969, it stars Robbie as Sharon Tate, who was murdered by the Manson Family while eight months pregnant. A source close to the production confirmed the news to IndieWire.

Pacino will play Marvin Schwarz, the agent of DiCaprio’s Rick Dalton — a past-his-prime star of Westerns attempting to reignite his career along with his longtime stuntman (Pitt); as fate would have it, Dalton happens to live next door to Tate. Other recent additions to the cast are Damian Lewis, Clifton Collins Jr., Keith Jefferson, Nicholas Hammond, and Timothy Olyphant.

The Sony Pictures project already cast Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in lead roles.

Dakota Fanning, Damian Lewis and Luke Perry are set to star alongside Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Sharon Tate drama Once Upon a Time in Hollywood for Sony Pictures.

Fanning will play the role of Squeaky Fromme, Lewis will portray Steve McQueen and Perry will play Scott Lancer in the movie set in Los Angeles in 1969. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood focuses on a washed-up actor (Pitt) from a Western TV series and his stunt double (DiCaprio) struggling to survive at the end of the 1960s.
Coincidentally, Pitt’s character, Rick Dalton, lives right next door to Tate, the starlet who was one of the victims in the Charles Manson murders.

The ensemble cast also will feature Emile Hirsch as Jay Sebring, Clifton Collins as Ernesto The Mexican Vaquero, Keith Jefferson as Land Pirate Keith and Nicholas Hammond as director Sam Wanamaker.

The movie earlier cast Margot Robbie, Burt Reynolds, Timothy Olyphant, Kurt Russell, Michael Masden and Tim Roth in supporting roles.
