One of Quentin Tarantino's best movies and also one of my all-time favorites. And the characters are not the nicest people in the world, but thy are kinda awesome! Here they are.
Played by: Harvey Keittel
White is seen as the leader of the group, the most adult one. Sort of a father figure, especially when it comes to Mr.Orange. He’s a nice guy, though very tough and professional. His temper and stubborness could get in the way.
Played by: Tim Roth
Orange is the rat. He infiltrates the group of criminals, so he can get to the truth and will eventually get the other dogs to jail. Orange developes a strong bond with White, who sees Orange as his son. The longer Orange is in the group, the harder it is for him to bring out the truth and to keep his identity hidden.
Played by: Michael Madsen
Blonde is a cool stud-like guy. He has a dark and sarcastic sense of humor and can be very sadisitic. He acts cool on the outside but is a brutal and violent man on the inside. Blonde prefers to make his ‘victims’ suffer and die a terrible death, instead of just killing them. And he actually enjoys tormenting people, such as the cop Marvin Nash.
Played by: Steve Buscemi
Pink is street smart and maybe he’s even the smartest one of the dogs, eventhough he doesn’t look like it. He’s very strong with words and he’s always looking out for his best interest. Pink knows how to survive and he doesn’t think about others. Which could make him the person with the last laugh.
Played by: Lawrence Tierney
Joe is the boss and the mind behind the heist. He is all about business, nothing more and nothing less. He has known Mr. White, Mr.Blonde and Mr. Pink for quite some time. Joe trusts on his instinct, which is right most of the time.
Played by: Chris Penn
Nice Guy Eddie is Joe’s son. He helped his father while setting up the heist, but he doesn’t get his hands dirty. He’s close to his father and to Mr. Blonde and is seen as the messenger between Joe and the dogs. It’s best to get on Eddie’s good side, because when it comes to instincts he’s much like his dad.
Played by: Quentin Tarantino
Brown can be seen as the most annoying dog in the group. He is very opinionated and has something to say about everything. But the one with the biggest mouth doesn't always have to be your strongest link.
Played by Eddie Bunker
Blue is the only dog we know literally nothing about. He is a quiet man and that’s also the way he leaves the story.
Favorite Character: Vic Vega aka Mr. Blonde
