It sounds strange, but the man said it himself.

On Wednesday, Tarantino told late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon that he landed a spot on the show as an Elvis impersonator.

Because the episode was so popular, he ended up being paid 3,000 dollars.

Tarantino says that money kept him going as he was trying to get his first film, “Reservoir Dogs” off the ground.

His latest film, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' picked-up Golden Globe awards Sunday for Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, Best Supporting Actor for Brad Pitt and Best Screenplay.
