As was previously reported, Tarantino has been eyeing several candidates for the role of Django in his movie Django Unchained. Originally, Will Smith was offered the role. However, later it was revealed that Smith might be on the verge of refusing the role. At that point, a few other candidates moved to the forefront of the casting list. Now, it has been confirmed that Will Smith has indeed backed out and the role has been passed to another.
Variety reports that Jamie Foxx has now been given the part in the movie. Foxx will play the role of Django in Tarantino’s Django Unchained. Django is a freed slave who teams with a German bounty hunter in a quest to seek out and free his enslaved wife.
Reports also state that Kerry Washington is one of the actresses being looked at to play the role of Django’s wife Broomhilda.
Filming on Django Unchained is set to begin this fall.
I think he's a good choice. Hes a way better, more talented dramatic actor than comedic actor. I heard that Idris Elba was also being considered at one point. Hopefully this turns out as great as Tarantino's other films.
