I’m convinced Sam Jackson must have a fifty thousand dollar a day coke habit, because he will take any job anywhere. When he found out he wasn’t up for any part in Inglourious Basterds, he called up Tarantino himself. Apparently it worked, because he now has a small part as the narrator, who has lines like:
“Needless to say, once the Basterds got heard about him, he never got there.”
“For in the other world, the gods only respect the ones they test first. Well Sgt., this is your test. And the gods are watching.” [JoBlo]
It’s tempting to think those are typos, but let’s face it, they’re not. These days there’s nothing Quentin loves more than broken English and circular, excessively prefaced monologues. In fact, many say that Tarantino is in love with circular monologues. But I’ll tell you this: he also loves broken English. Because if there’s one thing he’s extremely fond of, and we’re talking Quentin Tarantino here, it’s broken English and circular monologues.
