Jamie Foxx has been cast in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained? The news comes from "sources close to the production, according to Variety. In addition, Kerry Washington may joined the cast as Django's wife, Broomhilda. Washington played Foxx's wife before in Ray so this would be a reunion of sorts.
Foxx will star opposite Christoph Waltz as Dr. King Schultz, a German bounty hunter, to take down Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio), an evil plantation owner. The role of Candie's henchman Steven is said to be going to Samuel L. Jackson.
You may be wondering why I put the question mark at the end of my post. The answer, is that I find it funny that earlier today the rumor was the Foxx was "in negotiations" and then a few hours later sites are reporting that Fox has officially been cast! As much as I trust sources, I will not hold my breath until we receive an official press release from the Weinstein Co.
I find it to be poor journalism for sites to post stories based on speculation as being fact. Whenever we post a story, you may notice that a ""?" is added at the end or we add "in talks" or "may" to the title. GeekTyrant believes in reporting the facts, as much can be made available from the sources we use.
What are your thoughts, do you think Foxx has been cast?
