Finding a role for him in five of his movies to date, the partnership between director Quentin Tarantino and Samuel L. Jackson has been steady over the years, with the actor taking roles both big and small. Whenever QT has called, Jackson has pretty much been there. So who better for Tarantino to ring up than his old pal when it's time to do a live read of his leaked script, "The Hateful Eight"?

Well, that's just what he's done, with Deadline reporting that Jackson will be on stage with a batch of still unannounced actors tomorrow night at Film Independent at LACMA (yes, the date was changed and moved up). No word yet on his role. The event is sold out, so you're shit out of luck if you've been sleeping on this. But to recap, the western which was going to be Tarantino's next film until the script was widely leaked, follows a colorful group of misfits — a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier, and a female prisoner — who are forced to contend with each when they are trapped in a saloon in the middle of nowhere by a blizzard.

It's classic Tarantino — be sure to read our feature Black Night, White Hell: A Look At Quentin Tarantino’s 'The Hateful Eight' Western for more details — and keep your ears to the ground this weekend. We're sure the usually chatty Tarantino will have a lot say about his script and what how it got out there.

    Tonight I witnessed a legendary Director at work. I am someone who is greatly inspired by Tarantino and love the universes he creates. This reading showed me a side of Tarantino that I feel honored to have seen. His dedication and passion for his story along with characters development, is beyond encouraging. His choice of casting and his written script action allowed Quentin fanatics to obsorb something genuine. As I was force to leave my cell phone in the car I left the Ace Hotel more uplifted then I’ve been in a long time at entertainment. Somehow I felt this was a way for Tarantino to connect to his most passionate film buffets. Allowing us to watch him work.

    I'm sensing some sexual tension emanating from QT in this picture.
