Michael Madsen has been honoured with a Hollywood Hand and Footprint Ceremony.

The 63-year-old actor's career in the movie business was celebrated with a socially-distanced ceremony at the famed Chinese Theatre.

Michael was joined at the ceremony on Monday (16.11.20) by his wife DeAnna as he became the first star to have to be honoured since the coronavirus pandemic struck in March, plunging Los Angeles into lockdown and halting all film and television production.

Madsen is known for playing the villainous Mr. Blonde in Quentin Tarantino's 1992 movie 'Reservoir Dogs'. He has also worked with the legendary filmmaker on both 'Kill Bill' movies, 'The Hateful Eight' and 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood'.

Michael has a string of other movie credits to his name, including 'Thelma & Louise', 'Free Willy' and 'Donnie Brasco'.

He previously revealed that Tarantino had planned to make a prequel movie that was a crossover between 'Reservoir Dogs' and 'Pulp Fiction'.

The film would have seen Michael as Mr. Blonde teaming up with John Travolta's 'Pulp Fiction' character Vincent Vega.

The duo never met on-screen, although Tarantino has confirmed they are brothers, as Mr. Blonde's real name is Vic Vega.

According to Madsen, the unmade project would have seen the pair working in the criminal underworld in Amsterdam, where Vincent had just returned from in the plot for 'Pulp Fiction'.

He said: "The picture was going to start out with the two of us being released from prison in different states. And we open a club in Amsterdam."

The flick was initially planned to come out in the late 1990s and would have to have been a prequel as both characters were killed in their respective films.

Ultimately, it did not happen because Madsen and Travolta became "too old" to reprise their roles.
