The character of Blue Lou Boyle was originally a speaking part (with Robert De Niro as the definite favorite), but many cuts were made to Quentin Tarantino‘s script, including a scene featuring him.

Christopher Walken is briefly mentioned as Blue Lou Boyle’s associate.

Only two words were improvised in the famous ‘Sicilian’ scene between Christopher Walken and Dennis Hopper; ‘eggplant’ and ‘cantaloupe’.

True Romance with Christopher Walken
Christopher Walken as Vincenzo Coccotti


Following the eggplant scene, Dennis Hopper was concerned about being shot by Christopher Walken with the prop gun so close against his head for fear of being burned by the barrel. Director Tony Scott assured him the gun was 100 percent safe, and even tested it by having the prop man fire it against his (Scott’s) own forehead. But upon firing the prop gun, the barrel extended about a third of an inch and Scott ended up on the floor with blood pouring from the wound.

True Romance is a 1993 crime film by Tony Scott and written by Quentin Tarantino starring Christian Slater as Clarence Worley, Patricia Arquette as Alabama Whitman, Dennis Hopper as Clifford Worley, Val Kilmer as Mentor, Gary Oldman as Drexl Spivey, Brad Pitt as Floyd, Dick’s Roommate, Christopher Walken as Vincenzo Coccotti & Tom Sizemore as Detective Cody Nicholson.
