Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames) is a wealthy Los Angeles mob boss married to Mia, a former aspiring actress. They live in the Hollywood Hills. Marsellus is intelligent, straightforward, and loyal but when confronted with a problem may quickly resort to violence and murder, hence all of the characters who know Marsellus are wary of him. Butch saves Marsellus's life from his rapist, Zed, and he forgives the boxer but tells him to leave town and never come back.


According to Pulp Fiction producer Lawrence Bender, Rhames gave "one of the best auditions I've ever seen." His acclaimed performance led to him being cast in big-budget features such as Mission Impossible, Con Air, and Out of Sight.
