Michael K. Williams to appear in Django Unchained
Michael K. Williams may have lost out on the lead role in Django Unchained, but it seems director Quentin Tarantino might be making good on his promise to write the actor a new role.
“I’m going to dare to say it’s going to go,” Williams told Ain’t It Cool News.
Jamie Foxx confirms Leonardo DiCaprio in Django Unchained
Jamie Foxx is to play the titular hero in Quentin Tarantino’s hotly anticipated Western, Django Unchained.
Tarantino reportedly met with Wild Wild West’s Will Smith and Thor’s Idris Elba before settling on Jamie Foxx for the starring role.

Jamie Foxx lands Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained
Jamie Foxx has landed the lead role in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained.
Being touted as a ‘Southern’, Unchained will reportedly play with western movie tropes and relocate them to the Deep South.
Foxx will play a freed slave who attempts to save his lover from a malicious plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio).
He’s aided in that quest by a German bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz).
Previously, Tarantino offered the slave role to Will Smith, who graciously turned it down. After meeting with Idris Elba, Terrence Howard and Chris Tucker, Tarantino finally settled on Foxx.

The Hellions Quentin Tarantino with Christoph Waltz
One film together: Inglourious Basterds (2009).
From the raw material of an Italian-made late-70s Dirty Dozen knockoff called Quel Maledetto Treno Blindato (released as The Inglorious Bastards in the U.S.), Tarantino has whipped up his latest barmy bijou mashup: part World War II epic, part goofy Mike Myers comedy (literally—he’s in the movie), part grind-house gore-fest, part Eastwoodian revenge fantasy. The linchpin of this whole exercise—and the counterpoint to the film’s putative star, Brad Pitt—is the Vienna-born Waltz. As Colonel Hans Landa, he runs the gamut of cinematic Nazi-ness, from the cold menace of Ralph Fiennes in Schindler’s List to the high camp of Dick Shawn in The Producers. With his tight smile and pit-bull jawline, he bullies his way through his every scene, terrifying and electrifying. It’s the kind of performance that a prankster like Tarantino might call S-S-sen-sational.
