Quentin Taratino’s Once Upon A Time in Hollywood is already shaping up to be one of the director’s most divisive projects, covering the Hollywood of 1969, and the turbulent times surrounding it – even exploring the Manson Family murders.

But, as always, the director’s genius reputation has attracted some of the industry’s biggest names – but don’t worry, Tarantino fans, some of his most frequent collaborators are back as well. The most interesting revelation, however, is that while some of the actors will play original characters, some will be taking on Tinsel Town’s most iconic actors of the time.

Here, we’ve made a list of everyone cast in Once Upon A Time in Hollywood so far:

Margot Robbie

Luke Perry

Clifton Collins Jr.DF8F46A9 1CED 4DBB 899F ACD7100EF953

 

The Westworld star will join the film as “Ernesto the Mexican Vaquero” – in Spanish-speaking parts of the US, “vaquero” means cowboy, which suggests that this character may have a connection to Rick and Cliff’s past work.

Keith Jefferson

0E8D2EFC 7232 42BB 9BB9 7D52C9BAC747

The Hateful Eight actor has joined the film as “Land Pirate Keith” – your guess is as good as mine on that one.

 

Tim Roth & Michael Madsen

43D034C9 981F 4F8D 9FD3 D7046FC6FCFA

Frequent Tarantino collaborators Roth and Masden are also set to star in the film, in unspecified roles. The duo will no doubt bring the same intensity to this project as they have with all those before.
