Rick Dalton (a character in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood played by Leonardo DiCaprio) is an actor who starred in the fictional Western television series Bounty Law from 1958 to 1963. His attempt to transition into movies did not work out and in 1969, he is struggling to get a breakout film role still guest starring on TV shows while contemplating moving to Italy – which has become a hotspot for Spaghetti Westerns. The character was partly inspired by Burt Reynolds as well as actors like Edd Byrnes, Ty Hardin and William Shatner. He is neighbors with Sharon Tate in the Tarantino Universe. His long-time friend and stunt-double is Cliff Booth.

"Rick is a man full of inner turmoil and self-pity for not being in a better position, career-wise. But as is Rick’s way, he blames everybody but himself" - QT speaking to USA Today.
