Tarantino, Forever Young

Studio 360

This week, Quentin Tarantino stops by Studio 360 to talk about the Academy Award-nominated film 'Inglourious Basterds.' Of course, he's no stranger to the awards circuit -- he was nominated for an Oscar for Directing 'Pulp Fiction' (1994) and won a little gold man for writing the film's original screenplay. But he says one of the best perks of the buzz is meeting some of his childhood idols. In this sneak preview of his conservation with Kurt, Tarantino remembers his comic hero at age 5.

Despite all his acclaim, Tarantino is still that awestruck kid in the video store.

Kurt's full interview with Quentin Tarantino airs this weekend.
