On a relatively slow news day, here's a story I found somewhat interesting. Prior to his death in 1994, Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love were offered small roles in Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction. Had Cobain not turned down the role, pic would have marked his feature debut as an actor and, since he died shortly after, there's a possibility the film would have deterred him from committing suicide. But that's just my own wacky speculation.
Can you guess who the couple would have played? No, not Pumpkin (Tim Roth) and Honey Bunny (Amanda Plummer) -- although that would have been rather hilarious and disturbing to watch. Had they hopped onboard, Cobain and Love would have taken on the roles of a neurotic drug dealer and his heavily pierced edgy girlfriend. However, after the Nirvana singer passed, Eric Stoltz and Rosanna Arquette came along and snatched the memorable characters up.
While I'm sure Love would have maintained the hyper-active absurdity Arquette brought to the role, I have a feeling Cobain might have toned down the comedic anxiety present in Stoltz's character. What do you think?
