Kevin Costner to play a real meanie in Tarantino’s Django Unchained?
I really like Kevin Costner. There is way too much bashing of this guy going around the internet (which is why I wrote an article called In Praise of Kevin Costner, read it), so I am positively surprised that Deadline reports he is in talks to play a real meanie in Quentin Tarantino‘s upcoming southern Django Unchained. According to Fleming, he is tapped to play Ace Woody, a really sadist SOB training slaves to fight each other. That sounds like fun. The movie is shaping up nicely. Ever since Jamie Foxx has signed (as the titular Django, an escaped slave), the project, which will also star Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson and Leonardo Di Caprio, it is easier to really imagine where it is going. Tarantino is on the best way again to assemble a kick ass all star cast that will blow everything else outta the water. Costner would be great especially because he would be an unexpected appearance in such a film.
What I am interested in is who will definitely gonna be cast as Django’s damsel in distress Brunhilda. Rumors had it that Kerry Washington is in talks (Playlist). Interesting times ahead, my dear Tarantinoites, I can already see the opening credits in front of me, triggering standing ovations before the movie even starts. Go Quentin, cast your spell, cast your dream cast!
