Joey Pants should have played Jimmy


We all can agree that Tarantino's performance, like all of his save his turn as Ritchie in Dusk 'Til Dawn, is terrible. Which begs the question--who should have played Jimmy in Pulp?

Imagine Ralfie from The Sopranos delivering the famous 'dead nigger storage' tirade? :)

I thought Quentin Tarantino did a great job as Jimmy

meh. Auteur's prerogative. At least he's better in his parts than M. Night Shamalamadingdong is in his.
That said, love me some Joey Pants.

NO...TARANTINO IS PERFECT IN BOTH ROLES.

i enjoyed QT as Jimmy.

Steve Buscemi or Chris Penn - both from Reservoir Dogs - could have done it.

'90s Ben Affleck would've kinda made sense.

But for the real money: Tom Hanks. Mr. Everyman, livin' it up in the suburbs droppin' n-bombs and f-bombs like he's not worried about his future Academy Award prospects.
