Kerry Washington up for DJANGO UNCHAINED?
Another day, another bit of news coming out of the camp of Quentin Tarantino.
With Jamie Foxx all but signed for the male lead of his upcoming film DJANGO UNCHAINED, it’s looking like he’s set to cast his romantic lead, the character of Broomhilda, Django’s wife and the woman who makes him seek revenge, moving the film forward.
Variety is reporting that Kerry Washington is in the running for the role, a perfect fit for a rather important character. Now, the character itself doesn’t amount to much, as she doesn’t get much to do other than act like your run-of-the-mill damsel in distress, but it is a character that at its core is the reason the story is able to move forward in the first place. And you know what, it’s tough to think of a more interesting name to fill that role with than Kerry Washington.
As a huge fan of the actress, I think she’ll fit in perfectly with the absolutely mind-blowing cast that is being put together, including Foxx, Samuel L. Jackson, Christoph Waltz, and a little actor you may know of, Leonardo DiCaprio. This is shaping up to be a deeply interesting film, be it from Tarantino or not. Expect much more on this film really soon.
