Fassbender Directed Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs In Ireland
German-born actor MICHAEL FASSBENDER, one of the stars of QUENTIN TARANTINO's new movie INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, once staged and starred in a charity theatrical adaptation of the moviemaker's breakthrough film RESERVOIR DOGS.
Fassbender, who plays Lt. Archie Hicox in the new war movie, admits his Dogs play in Killarney, Ireland was a comedy of errors.
He tells WENN, "I was 18 and I played Mr. Pink and I directed it as well. It was pure naivete and enthusiasm but a good lesson to learn by doing. I basically didn't know what I was getting myself into and there were plenty of hitches.
"We lost our Mr. Orange about two weeks before we were opening, so I had to recast that. Then an 18 year old giving directions to actors in their 20s; there were plenty of hiccups along the way.
"We also had problems finding a charity that would take our money - nobody wanted to be associated with Reservoir Dogs. So, in the end, we had to go with a private charity and basically keep it anonymous. It's funny that nobody wanted our money. I guess there was so much hype about the film at the time and it was so controversial."
