Leo For Villain In Django

That's right! Just when Tarantino's next movie couldn't sound better, we now hear that Quentin is looking to Leonardo DiCaprio to bring the villain Calvin Candie to life!

Tarantino actually wanted Leo for a role in his last movie, the role of Hans that ended up going to Christoph Waltz (who won an Oscar for the performance), so it isn't a stretch to think Tarantino would go after Leo again!

Here's a small tidbit:

Django Unchained is being billed as a Southern, as opposed to a Western, and it contains many of the same tropes as the Spaghetti fare of Leone, Solima or Corbucci, though laced with Mandingo or Drum-style blaxploitation elements. The role of Calvin Candie, which could be DiCaprio’s, is that of a slave trader and proprietor of The Cleopatra Club, a rather unsavory place.

It's also rumored that Tarantino wants Will Smith for the lead.

It would be an unexpectedly awesome performance from both actors, that's for sure! We can't wait to hear if they sign on!

Do U think Leo is a good choice??

    I would LOOOOVE to see Leo as a villain. He's such a talented actor, and I'd love to see him try something new.

    I could see this. It's a bit of an extra psychological impact to have a good looking almost baby faced man be sociopathically and ethically bankrupt for profit.

    Why not? He's a talented actor (good actors can assume all kinds of personas) and Tarantino is a kick-ass director. Could work!
