Producer Lawrence Bender was originally supposed to play “Nice Guy Eddie” in Reservoir Dogs, but when Harvey Keitel signed on to the independent film, bringing an extra $1.5 to the budget, they could afford to hire professional actors, including: Steve Buscemi, Tim Roth, and Chris Penn. Bender instead cameoed as one of the cops chasing Buscemi’s character.
