CASTING WATCH: Gordon-Levitt and LaPaglia Join Tarantino's Django Unchained as Aussie Brothers

It's official: Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained is getting Joseph Gordon Levitt and Anthony LaPaglia to play hick Australian brothers; small parts, but crucial, reports ThePlaylist, to key scenes at the end of the script. (LaPaglia is an Aussie.)

Who wouldn't want to play any part in a Tarantino movie? Gordon-Levitt's schedule shifted to accommodate his role in Django, which will shoot in New Orleans starting in January. These actors join Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell and Don Johnson. Here's the synopsis and more on how the cast came together.

The Weinsteins are lined up to distribute the film in the US, and Sony is handling foreign distribution. We. Can’t. Wait.
