Jamie Foxx: You can’t walk through those places [plantations] and not shed tears and feel something.
I took my three and a half and my eighteen year old children, and I let them walk through there. I said, ‘This is where you come from.’ That’s where we needed to be so we could really get down into the story.
Kerry Washington: It’s been such an adventure. We’re in Wyoming one week, and the next week we’re in Louisiana, and then we’re in Los Angeles. We’re all over the place in the same way that this character is trekking across the United States to find his wife. I think the adventure of making the film, and the adventure that Django goes on, are epic journeys in the name of love, which I think is pretty awesome.
