Quentin Tarantino could cast Ringo Starr in a movie




Thinks drummer has most stage presence of any Beatle

Quentin Tarantino wants to cast Ringo Starr in one of his movies.

The Death Proof director is keen to work with the Beatles drummer and says he always had a greater "presence" than his former bandmates.

Tarantino told the Liverpool Echo: "I'd pick Elvis over the Beatles any day of the week but there's always something special about Ringo. I've always thought he had the best stage presence in the band."

Ringo is no stranger to the big screen, having starred in the 1964 film A Hard Day's Night alongside fellow Beatles John Lennon, Sir Paul McCartney and George Harrison.

His thespian talents were also put to the test when he narrated the hugely popular British children's TV series Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends in the 1980s.

Tarantino - who plays a cowboy called Ringo in upcoming film Sukiyaki Western Django - has developed a reputation for reinventing veteran stars.

Pulp Fiction has often been credited with reviving the career of John Travolta in 1994, while Jackie Brown brought the 58-year-old Pam Grier out of obscurity in 1997.

In 2003's Kill Bill Tarantino put martial arts expert David Carradine back in the limelight almost 20 years after he had last appeared in a high profile film role.
