Kurt Russell is nostalgic about being in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Hollywood actor Kurt Russel is feeling nostalgic about his role in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The star shared in a recent interview that being in the film was like a flashback to his youth and growing up in the entertainment industry.

Russell shared details about his experience in his latest film in an interview with magazine Cigar Aficionado.

“It reminded me of me and my dad and my friends in the late ’60s and early ’70s. I grew up in that world,” Russell, who graced the cover of the Men’s magazine, said about the film. See Russel play the role of a stunt coordinator in the second trailer of the film below:


The 68-year-old actor reveals being right at home as he played a stunt coordinator in the Tarantino-directed film. Acting alongside him are Hollywood superstars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt.

“I worked with so many stunt coordinators when I was a kid that I had dealer’s choice about who to base him on,” Russell shared his role, adding his character is “a real conglomerate.”

While the role was smaller than those that Russell took on back in the day, the actor says he said yes to the opportunity to work with Tarantino again: “For me it was a quick-hit kind of deal, three days all together,” he said.

In the exclusive interview, the veteran actor also revealed that he was considered to play Hans Solo and almost beat out Mark Hamill for the role of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars.
