Quentin Tarantino: We got together and he [Jamie Foxx] was just terrific. He understood the story, the context of the story and the historical importance of the film. He got it 100%.
He’s a terrific actor and he looks perfect for the character, but there’s a cowboy quality to him.
When I met him, I was imagining that if they cast black guys in the 60s to be the stars of Western TV shows, I could imagine Jamie having his own TV show.
He looks good on a horse, and good in the outfit.
Jamie Foxx: It was the most incredible script I’ve read in all of my life. I thought, ‘Who has the guts, and the knowledge to tell it like it really is?’
I thought that the way he’s telling the story -- as true and as honest -- if it rips your flesh off, so be it. That’s what was exciting about the process.
