[on how his look was created in Pulp Fiction (1994)] “Quentin Tarantino wanted Jules to have a big afro. He sent this PA out to buy a wig. She went to South Central and bought this jeri-curl wig. And Quentin was going off, saying, ‘It’s got to be an afro because he had this whole blaxploitation thing’. I told him, ‘That’s the South Central look.’ You look at Ice Cube and NWA. Guys had all this shit dripping down their necks. I had already grown the sideburns out and the mustache. It was perfect. Total Gangster.”
