Kove, Remar, and more join Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Django Unchained James Remar

The latest casting announcement for writer/director Quentin Tarantino's new film ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD notes that this batch of additions "rounds out" the cast, so this may be the last casting announcement we hear for the film, which is already deep in production. If this is the last casting news, it would make sense, because we've already got quite a lengthy list of actor names here.

Set in 1969 Los Angeles, HOLLYWOOD stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt as

Rick Dalton (DiCaprio), 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.

Their previously announced co-stars are Margot Robbie as actress and Manson Family victim Sharon Tate; Burt Reynolds as George Spahn, the man who owned the ranch the Manson Family lived on; Luke Perry as Wayne Maunder, co-star of a Western series called Lancer; Clifton Collins Jr. as Ernesto the Mexican Vaquero; Keith Jefferson as Land Pirate Keith; 1970s TV Spider-Man Nicholas Hammond as real life actor/director Sam Wanamaker; Damian Lewis as iconic actor Steve McQueen; Dakota Fanning as Squeaky Fromme, "the Manson disciple who later tried to assassinate President Gerald Ford"; Emile Hirsch as Jay Sebring, a "Hollywood hairstylist who was one of four victims in the Tate murders on Cielo Drive"; Al Pacino as Rick's agent Marvin Schwarz; Scott McNairy as Business Bob Gilbert, a cowboy on a Western TV show; Michael Madsen as the sheriff on a Western TV show; and Zoe Bell, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Timothy Olyphant, James Marsden, and Julia Butters in unspecified roles.

Joining them are James Remar, who was also in Tarantino's DJANGO UNCHAINED, where he played two roles (that's one of them pictured above); Martin Kove of THE KARATE KID and RAMBO: FIRST BLOOD PART II; Craig Stark, who worked with the director on DJANGO UNCHAINED and THE HATEFUL EIGHT; Spencer Garrett as Allen Kincade, "an interviewer of Hollywood's A-list"; Eddie Perez as Land Pirate Eddie; Maurice Compte as Land Pirate Mao; Brenda Vaccaro; Nichole Galicia, who shared a kiss with DiCaprio in DJANGO UNCHAINED; Marco Rodríguez; Ramón Franco; Raul Cardona; and Mike Moh. Moh will be playing the legendary Bruce Lee.

That is one hell of a cast, and I'm very interested in seeing how Steve McQueen and Bruce Lee are going to fit into the story. I hope they don't just show up for a cameo at a party or something like that, but that seems like the most likely option.

ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD is scheduled to reach theatres on August 9, 2019, the 50th anniversary of the Tate murders.
