Quentin Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight': EW Exclusive character portraits
John Ruth (Kurt Russell)
John is a mean sonuvabitch with a code as intractable as a noose. He’s on his way to Red Rock with his murderous bounty, Daisy Domergue, in tow.
Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson)
Once a Union officer, Warren now lives in the Wyoming mountains. He harbors his own fair share of secrets and still knows how to handle a gun.
Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh)
Just because she’s handcuffed to her bounty hunter doesn’t mean Daisy isn’t a lethal threat. This infamous outlaw chews iron and spits nails.
Joe Gage (Michael Madsen)
An out-and-out cowboy in the classic mold, with a kerchief as dirty as his smirk, Gage is one of four strangers holed up at Minnie’s Haberdashery when the others arrive.
Oswaldo Mobray (Tim Roth)
If you can’t tell by his continental-sounding name and fancy tailoring, Mobray isn’t a local. The well-appointed Brit claims to be the new hangman of Red Rock.
Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins)
A Southerner who’s moved west, Mannix says he’s the sheriff. But anyone in a Western should know better than to trust a man in a black hat.
General Sanford Smithers (Bruce Dern)
This former Confederate general is the most laconic of the bunch, content to hold his peace (until he’s required to hold his piece).
Bob (Demian Bichir)
Swaddled in a giant fur coat—and an equally giant fur beard—Bob “the Mexican” has taken over innkeeper duties from Minnie while she’s away visiting relatives.
