    Horror Maestro Tom Savini Joins 'Django Unchained' As Elvis Brittle

    M.C. Gainey To Play Big John Brittle In Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained'

    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."

And nothing has been a better Western training ground in rec...
