Frankly I’ve had a lot of trouble keeping it all organized in my head, but here’s the latest casting news on the Robert Rodriguez / Quentin Tarantino "Grind House" production: Rose McGowan now has two roles (kinda), and Mickey Rourke has … none. Also, QT might be giving himself another speaking role.
From film ick: "Not only will Rose McGowan be appearing in Robert Rodriguez’ "Project Terror," she’ll also be popping up in "Death Proof," Tarantino’s half of the Grind House package. She joins Zoe Bell, Rosario Dawson, Mickey Rourke, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
There’s also a part, I have just been informed, for one Quentin Tarantino. He’s playing a character called, simply, The Rapist. Wonder what he’s like, then?
Further to yesterday’s thrilling Grind House news, I can now report, and sadly, that Mickey Rourke will apparently NOT be playing Stuntman Mike in "Death Proof." The role seemed tailor made for him, but then so did Bill for Warren Beatty."
