Quentin Tarantino is rumored to have offered Paul Walter Hauser the lead role in his latest film The Movie Critic before the strikes began.
Director Quentin Tarantino reportedly asked Paul Walter Hauser to star in The Movie Critic, his last film, this one before strikes delayed filming. It seems that Tarantino has already chosen the protagonist of his next and perhaps last film, The Movie Critic.
Has the protagonist of the film been revealed?
According to insider Daniel Richtman, the director offered Paul Walter Hauser (Tonya, Richard Jewell, Cruella) to star in the film in the central role of Jim Sheldon, a film critic who writes reviews for a porn magazine. Tarantino, some time ago, declared that the lead actor should not have been either English or Australian, and in fact Hauser is American from Michigan. However, the request would have been made before filming was blocked due to the actors’ strike and nothing is certain yet.
