Moneyball co-star Jonah Hill has joined the cast of Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, and we have no idea what role he will play in the film. Deadline makes a point to say that it won’t be Scotty Harmony, a part Hill was up for before the film started shooting but couldn't commit due to his busy schedule. Harmony is the kid who loses Django’s slave wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) to the evil plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). I imagine whatever part he's taken won't be a big one, but it'll be fun to see him in there. 

I can't wait to see this movie, it looks awesome! Make sure to check out the trailer if you haven't yet. The film also stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson, James Remar, Don Johnson, Franco Nero, Walton Goggins, Bruce Dern, M.C. Gainey, RZA, Tom Savini, Michael Bacall, Dennis Christopher, and Laura Cayouette.  

Here's the Synopsis:

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, “Django Unchained” stars Academy Award®-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles – dead or alive. 

Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South’s most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago. 

Django and Schultz’s search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy Award®-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of “Candyland,” an infamous plantation where slaves are groomed by trainer Ace Woody (Kurt Russell) to battle each other for sport. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy Award®-nominee Samuel L. Jackson), Candie’s trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival...
