Tarantino said he and Pitt had wanted to work together on a movie for some time.
“Artistically, me and Brad have been sniffing around each other for a while, the longing looks across the room and everything, the little notes: ‘I like you, do you like me?'”
Pitt said he agreed to play Raine after discussing the part with the director long into the night.
“I got up the next morning and I saw five empty bottles of wine laying on the floor … and something that resembled a smoking apparatus, I don’t know what that was about,” Pitt said.
“And apparently I agreed to do the movie because six weeks later I was in uniform and I was Lieutenant Aldo Raine.”
That works out to 2.5 bottles of wine per person along with an undefined quality of an undefined smokable inhalant. Here at the University of Missouri-Columbia, we call that a good start.
