** Lance/Jody: According to Music/CourtneyLove, she and [[Music/{{Nirvana}} Kurt Cobain]] were specifically offered the role. Apparently (and unfortunately), Cobain turned it down. Depending on what article you read, Tarantino denies this. Creator/PamGrier auditioned for Jody. Though she had a great audition, Tarantino decided not to cast her because he could not imagine Grier getting pushed around the way the character does.
Creator/NicolasCage, Creator/JohnCusack, Creator/JohnnyDepp, Creator/SamuelLJackson, Creator/MichaelKeaton, Creator/GaryOldman, and Creator/BillPaxton were also considered for Lance, while Patricia Arquette, Angel Aviles, Jennifer Beals, Creator/SofiaCoppola, Tyra Ferrell, Bridget Fonda, Jasmine Guy, Lathy Griffin, Creator/JenniferJasonLeigh, Lili Taylor and N'Bushe Wright were also considered for Jody.

** Vincent Vega: Creator/DanielDayLewis actively campaigned for the part, but Tarantino turned him down. He initially wanted Creator/MichaelMadsen to play the goofy hitman, but the latter chose to pursue another project instead (a decision he later regretted). Now just imagine Vincent being played by those two instead of Creator/JohnTravolta...
** Jules Winnfield: ''The'' quintessential Creator/SamuelLJackson role, but he almost lost this part to Paul Calderón. He eventually kept it, with Calderón playing [[TheDanza Paul]] (Marsellus's right-hand man) instead.

** Butch was written for Creator/MickeyRourke. Rourke turned the role down, since the script was too "out there" and he hadn't seen ''Reservoir Dogs'' yet. He has called the decision to pass as the biggest regret of his career. Tarantino next offered the role to Creator/BruceWillis, who was a long shot, as he was still a big-money, A-list star at that point. Creator/SylvesterStallone was also considered.

''Color of Night'' lost by being one of the worst-reviewed films of 1994.
