Years before Marvel came along and trotted out its shared universe of movies for fans everywhere to obsess over, director Quentin Tarantino was planting easter eggs that tied all of his films together into one cohesive world. For example, Saul Rubinek’s character, Lee Donowitz, from True Romance is the son of Inglourious Basterds' Donny "the Bear Jew" Donowitz, who was played by Eli Roth. And Michael Madsen played a character named Vic Vega in Reservoir Dogs, who was the brother of John Travolta’s Vincent Vega in Pulp Fiction.

Now one eagle-eyed Reddit user has found a connection between Django Unchained and Pulp Fiction. It turns out that Captain Koons (Christopher Walken) from Pulp Fiction is a direct descendant of Crazy Craig Koons, who was a member of the Smitty Becall gang from Django. You can check out an image here for further proof of the connection.
