    Michael K. Williams Says He Lost The 'Django Unchained' Lead, But There May Be Another Part For Him

    Actor Suggests Tarantino May Write A New Role For Him In The Slavery/Western EpicYou probably know him best as Omar Little from "The Wire" or perhaps as Chalky White in "Boardwalk Empire," and if you've seen his imposing presence on either of those shows, you'll know why many people (including us) pegged him as the perfect lead for Quentin Tarantino's upcoming picture, "Django Unchained." The spaghetti western/slavery revenge pic has been gearing up over the last few months for a planned January shoot in New Orleans. After much speculation that saw Will Smith openly courted for the movie (with the actor's longtime studio home of Sony even goi...

    Kevin Costner In Talks To Be Leonardo DiCaprio's Henchman In Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained'

    Quentin Tarantino may not have landed the biggest movie star on the planet, Will Smith, for his controversy-bomb slavery Western "Django Unchained," but that doesn't mean he's starving for A-listers: Jamie Foxx has taken over the title part, originally intended for Smith, while Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz is going to be Dr. King Schultz, Django's pal and mentor, Leonardo DiCaprio will take on the principle villain (and appears to be locked in now), slave-trader Calvin Candie, and Samuel L. Jackson will be Candie's principal house slave, Stephen. And now, another big name has signed on, making the film perhaps Tarantino's most traditionally s...
