Michael K. Williams to appear in Django Unchained

Tarantino pens him a new role

 
Michael K. Williams may have lost out on the lead role in Django Unchained, but it seems director Quentin Tarantino might be making good on his promise to write the actor a new role. 
 
“I’m going to dare to say it’s going to go,” Williams told Ain't It Cool News
 
“It came down to Jamie and I for Django, and [Tarantino] was gracious enough to call me and tell me that ‘Jamie was his nigger.' Will Smith expressed some interest, but it came down to Jamie Foxx and I, like QT told me this personally out of his mouth over lunch.”
 
Tarantino has now asked him to keep his diary clear in early 2012.  
 
“Yes, I’ve been given a timeline. January through April. I’ve been given some dates when he’s going to want me to work but I haven’t gotten the official word yet.” 
 
Williams is also keeping mum about what the role might be. 
 
“Absolutely not. I can’t right now. I do know but I won’t tell you right now,” he said. 
 
Django Unchained will shoot in New Orleans for an expected release on 25 December 2012. So now you know what to ask Santa for next year.

      Django Unchained is Tarantino so there is no doubt it's going to be brilliant whatever Quentin decides it should be cool Great that Samuel L Jackson is getting a good role after small parts in the last few tarantinos hope there's some great lines like in Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown Sam always gets the best lines

      The crazy thing is I bet QT actually said that to him.

      He ought to have been Django. Him or Don Cheadle. Anybody with rough edges. Foxx's Louis Vuitton, bling'd up attitude stops this being my most eagerly awaited film of 2012.
