The Perfect Pairing 22 Years in The Making: 'True Romance' & Stoner Floyd

The Stoner that really tied this movie together


Twenty two years ago the Tarantino-scripted, Tony Scott-directed cult classic "True Romance" debuted on September 10, 1993 -- barely a year after Reservoir Dogs became indie film's The Chronic. 

To use baseball parlance, that is the cinematic equivalent of throwing back-to-back no-hitters (southpaw Johnny Vander Meer is the only pitcher in history to complete this near-impossible feat way back in '38). Clarence & Alabama Worley, Gary Oldman's insane Jamaican accent as a dreadlocked pimp named Drexl Spivey -- unforgettable characters. 

But we're here to spotlight the film's smoke-engulfed minor gem -- Floyd, the permanently stoned roommate, played by Brad Pitt aka this guy:

Why 22nd Anniversary and not an even 10 or 25? Why not? Floyd, our favorite blunted couch potato, doesn't even know what year it is. 

In celebration of making Sept. 10, Floyd Day, watch this episode of Brown Bag Wine Tasting where, over a glass of wine, William Shatner interviews Dominic, a thoughtful and witty career marijuana dealer.

There. Floyd approves. Enjoy!
