Mr. Brown is now Dr. Brown.

Celebrated American filmmaker Quentin Tarantino — who played Mr. Brown in his major feature debut “Reservoir Dogs” —  has received an honorary doctorate from Israel’s Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

The university says it is recognizing the actor, director, screenwriter, author, and two-time Academy Award-winner for his “critically acclaimed cinematic success as a writer, director, and actor.”

Tarantino, who in 2018 married Israeli singer and model Daniella Pick, splits his time between Tel Aviv and Hollywood.

The university notes Tarantino’s “strong ties to Israel through his wife Daniella, and for making Israel his second home.”

Tarantino’s films are known for their signature dark humor. They have garnered global recognition, including seven Academy Awards. His films “Pulp Fiction” and “Django Unchained” won him Oscars for best original screenplay.
