Have a Look at Tarantino's Original Casting Wish List for 'Pulp Fiction'

"This other actor could have played this iconic role!" talk is nothing new, as Tom Selleck will tell you whenever you approach him at a party and ask him how much it sucks that he was almost Indiana Jones before he turned it down to do Magnum P.I. But rarely do you get to see casting coulda-beens like this: a typed-out, partially ranked listing of the many actors Quentin Tarantino was willing to accept for the parts in Pulp Fiction. It's a list that's equally interesting for its inclusions (John Cusack was the first choice for Eric Stoltz's part, and Nicolas Cage was a backup?) and exclusions (Bruce Willis isn't even in the list for Butch, though Cage is also considered there). Though it's probably most interesting because Danny DeVito is on there. You didn't see that coming, did you?
