The Hateful Eight is Samuel L. Jacksons sixth Quentin Tarantino film, and we think he just may nab an Oscar for this one. But while Jackson played coy about the Oscar buzz surrounding his performance when HipHollywood sat down with him to discuss the film, he didn’t shy away from defending Tarantino’s use of the N-word in his films.
“I hear people criticize him and I always go you’re not paying attention to what’s going you’re just listening to the words,” said Jackson. “If you are going to characterize or criticize his dialogue then we need to go back to the dialogue in Straight Outta Compton and Chi-raq and where ever else we need to go. If you’re not going to censor that , you can’t censor this.”
In this twisted and bloody Tarantino western, Jackson plays Major Marquis Warren, a gun toting bounty hunter who hitches a ride with another bounty hunter, played by Kurt Russell, who is on his way to Red Rock with his prisoner Daisy, played by Jennifer Jason Leigh.
Watch the video to hear what else Jackson, Russell, Leigh and Bruce Dern, had to say about working with Tarantino and making this epic western. The Hateful Eight which also stars Channing Tatum, Tim Roth and Michael Madsen, opens in theaters December 25th in a special 70mm roadshow release, and nationwide on January 8th, 2016.
Clapback Queen … Yvette Nicole Brown Got Time Today!
Yes, you can now call Yvette Nicole Brown the “clapback queen”.
Brown has proven she has a way with words and is lethal with her language when it comes to social media shade. And while she tries not to dish it out too often, she found plenty of time to set folks straight about the cancellation of her comedy The Mayor.
The show starring Brown and Brandon Michael Hall never quite got its footing on ABC, which Yvette understood, but it was folks thinking that Lea Michele was the real star of the show that got her fingers tapping away on Twitter.
When HH talked to Yvette she explained why she felt it was important to set the record straight. Plus she revealed the only reason she would ever delete a tweet … actually it’s two reasons.
