Whoa! Our minds are blown!
After watching Jamie Foxx slay it as the titular hero of Django Unchained, it's hard to imagine anyone else playing the lead!!
So we were triple stunned to learn Will Smith was once attached to the Quentin Tarantino script, but eventually turned down the role because his character wasn't in enough scenes!
The Man in Black recently revealed:
"Django wasn’t the lead, so it was like, I need to be the lead. The other character was the lead! I was like, 'No, Quentin, please, I need to kill the bad guy!'"
That's INSANE!! And maybe slightly self-centered!!
Everything worked out for the best, we suppose!
Jamie took the role, his performance was amazeballz, Christoph Waltz waltzed away with an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, and a bunch of slave owning white jerks got dead.
Still, we can't help but wonder how it might've all turned out if The Fresh Prince was involved, LOLz!!
