Vincent Vega (Pulp Fiction) – John Travolta
The character of Vincent Vega is precisely one of those awesome moments in Hollywood when a long-forgotten actor suddenly makes an epic comeback. John Travolta is the one who did it, and Quentin Tarantino certainly made no mistake when he decided to hire him. Tarantino subsequently revealed that hiring Travolta wasn’t his initial intention, because the role was written for Michael Madsen (who left two weeks before the script was finished in order to work on another movie). Vincent (Travolta) has numerous unforgettable scenes in Pulp Fiction, a lot of which are part of an ongoing philosophical dialogue he has with Jules Winnfield, but more so Vincent’s glorious dance contest with Mia Wallace and that shit alone is enough to turn you into a movie legend.
Vincent Vega quote: “Aww man, I shot Marvin in the face.“
