Out Of Sight Easter Egg - Another Pulp Fiction Connection

Notice that "Buddy" (Ving Rhames) is never given a name in this movie other than what "Jack" (George Clooney) calls him which he confesses is not his real name. The ending of the movie leaves "Buddy"
very well off...possibly well-off enough to be Marcellus Wallace?

Umm, gkm, Pulp Fiction is not based on an Elmore Leonard novel.

Wow, that's brilliant, really. You know who else he could go on to be? Luther from Mission Impossible. Or maybe Nate Jones from Con Air. Or maybe he goes on to become Don King. That's not an egg. In fact, that's nothing. And why the hell does everyone keep trying to connect Tarantino to this movie? There's not a connection. Just stop.

What are you talking about gkd? Pulp Fiction wasn't based on a novel! That's why Quentin Tarantino won a Best Original Screenplay Oscar for the movie. HE WROTE IT! The story was also created by Roger Avary, and if you don't believe me, then look at the back of the box then!

Both movies are based on Elmore Leonard novels. The Ray Nicolette character is from the books. Leonard frequently reuses characters in this way, which makes sense, as his stories usually focus on crime in Miami and Detroit.

As per my comment on the Samuel Jackson connection, directors often will use talented actors in subsequent films they make, without there neccesarily being a connection between the characters being played. Buddy and Marcelus Wallace are completely different kinds of characters. Buddy is guilt-wracked over the thefts he commits in "Out of Sight" and it is implied that he intends to retire after the big score, but Marcellus Wallace has no problem ordering murders, fixing prizefights, and in general running a crime sydicate. I think this is just a case of a director using an actor he likes in a subsequent movie.

I hate to tell ya, but 'Out of Sight' was directed by Steven Soderbergh; Quentin Tarantino wasn't involved with the film.

More on Buddy: He does have a last name, which is identified in the final credits: Bragg. More important, Elmore Leonard uses this name in the book, and even gives his real name: Orren Edward Bragg (Karen's father has a "source" look him up in the computer). And by the way, he's white in the book.
