RZA Cast As “Violent Slave” Thaddeus In Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained”

RZA Cast As "Violent Slave" Thaddeus In Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained"

RZA’s certainly keeping himself busy, both in front of and behind the camera… the latest from Variety:

Quentin Tarantino is reaching out to a familiar face for a part in DJANGO UNCHAINED, tapping his KILL BILL composer RZA for a supporting role in the spaghetti Western… RZA will play Thaddeus, a violent slave working on a Mississippi plantation.

It’s been awhile since I read the script for the film and don’t immediately recall a “violent slave” named “Thaddeus,” why he’s described as “violent,” or how considerable the part is.

Regardless, whether or not he was in the version of script I read, or a new character Tarantino has since written in, RZA’s going to play him.

I hope we’ll be seeing a trailer for his The Man With The Iron Fists soon (his directorial debut, shepherded by Tarantino by the way; as well as Eli Roth)! Been a minute since that wrapped.
