It didn’t work out with Danny playing Chili. Thank God he played the role he was born to play, which was Shorty. John Travolta [who played Chili Palmer] turned the movie down twice until Quentin Tarantino intervened. Tarantino had dated one of Get Shorty’s producers, who gave him the script. He called John and said: “This is not the movie you pass on.” Travolta said he didn’t get it, but Quentin said: “Trust me and do it.” John was perfect as Chili Palmer. He is one of the greatest actors with a walk. Whether it’s Saturday Night Fever or Pulp Fiction, his walk exudes confidence.
