Flashback: Quentin Tarantino’s short-lived stint as a sitcom star

As some intriguing new stills from his upcoming slave revenge drama Django Unchained become available, check out this relic from 1994 in which Tarantino – fresh from Pulp Fiction’s runaway success – demonstrates to the world exactly why he belongs behind the camera. In an episode of the short lived sitcom ‘All-American Girl‘ entitled Pulp Sitcom, he essays the character of Desmond, a nerdy, pop culture-savvy nerd/bootleg video salesman (somehow he makes it a stretch), who woos the show’s star Margaret Cho. The pair were also dating in real life.

All credit for this must go to Paul O’ Callaghan, without whom I’d have never been exposed to such wonder.
