Quentin Tarantino has been characterized by maintaining a unique relationship with the actors and actresses who crossed paths in his career. However, the director has admiration for many actors, including some with whom he has never worked.
During a recent interview with Jim Hoberman, the two-time Oscar winner named the actors he considers his favorite actors from his generation: Sean Penn, Tim Roth and Nicolas Cage. Of these three, only Roth has had the opportunity to work with Tarantino, in Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, among others.
About Sean Penn, Quentin chose him for his “violent and sexual charisma”
As for Tim Roth, Tarantino indicated that he is one of his favorites “because of his versatility and ferocity,” adding that “he has this chameleon quality”

Regarding Nicolas Cage he said: “I have never seen an actor in the history of cinema make a career out of being poorly cast and rising to the occasion“.

According to Tarantino’s plans, his next film will be the last one he directs and then turn to other branches of art. In fact, he has already started as a fiction writer with the novel ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood‘.
