Australian actor Damon Herriman, best known for his role as dim-witted criminal Dewey Crowe in ‘Justified,’ has been set to play notorious cult leader Charles Manson in Quentin Tarantino’s currently in production ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.’

Tarantino’s ninth overall film as a director, ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’ is described as a ‘Pulp Fiction’-like tapestry of stories set at the height of hippy Hollywood and  centres around Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), former star of a western TV series, and his long-time stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbour…Sharon Tate (played by Margot Robbie).

The ’60s epic also includes the likes of Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Timothy Olyphant, Emile Hirsch, Dakota Fanning, Clifton Collins Jr,, Damian Lewis, Luke Perry, Keith Jefferson, Nicholas Hammond, legendary actors Burt Reynolds and Al Pacino, Rumer Willis, Dreama Walker, Margaret Qualley, Costa Ronin,, Victoria Pedretti and Madisen Beaty.

ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD is slated to be released on July 2019.
