Quentin Tarantino recently mused about remaking his first big directorial effort Reservoir Dogs as his final feature film, but also dismissed the idea in the same breath.
Cast member Steve Buscemi appeared on The Late Late Show With James Corden and revealed his own theory about the fate of his character Mr. Pink, the one character that seemingly got away from both the shootout and cops. What happened to Mr. Pink has long been a creative exercise but Buscemi is echoing a theory that sees him having a direct connection to Tarantino’s follow-up Pulp Fiction.
“I don’t know if anyone else thinks about this, but because my character of Mr. Pink in Reservoir Dogs was such a cheapskate, and he didn’t like to tip, I thought it was poetic justice that my next film with Quentin, I play a waiter. I even like to think that maybe Mr. Pink got away somehow in Reservoir Dogs and he’s hiding out as the Buddy Holly waiter. And he probably gets tipped terribly. That’s his fate,” Steve Buscemi told the late night host.
It’s certainly poetic justice, however, Mr. Pink would have had the diamonds from the heist, so there would have to be some extra explanation about what happened to the stolen goods that led him to become a waiter. Maybe, he’s a huge gambler and blew all the money making horrible bets or a rough weekend in Las Vegas. Then again, if he’s a cheapskate he could have a mental thing about spending that money.
RESERVOIR DOGS – Six criminals with pseudonyms, and each strangers to one another, are hired to carry out a robbery. The heist is ambushed by police and the gang are forced to shoot their way out. At their warehouse rendezvous, the survivors, realizing that they were set up, try to find the traitor in their midst.
