This A list mostly movie director said he cast this former A- list mostly movie actor who bombed at headlining a movie because he thought the fact he assaulted a woman (and was convicted of it) brought something to the part that no other actor could give and he doesn’t think it is a big deal.
This director is such an a-hole and I hope this movie bombs.

Jameela Jamil Calls Out Emile Hirsch’s Abusive Behavior Following Tarantino Announcement
This week, it was announced that actor Emile Hirsch was joining the cast of Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film about Charles Manson, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which also includes Al Pacino, Leonardo DiCaprio, Damian Lewis, Dakota Fanning, and others. But on Friday, The Good Place actress Jameela Jamil slammed the move, as Hirsch had been arrested for attacking a woman — one of her friends — at the Sundance Film Festival just three years ago.
“Cool,” Jamil wrote on social media. “Emile Hirsch strangled my tiny female best friend until she blacked out at a party in front of dozens of witnesses at Sundance Film Festival (and was convicted) but Tarantino just cast him in a movie.” She added, “INTENSE case of rich white male privilege eh? Cool. Cool. Cool.” – Source
