Jamie Foxx Set To Star In New Film

Jamie Foxx snagged the leading role in Quentin Tarantino's new Western film, "Django Unchained."

Foxx will play Django Freeman, a newly freed slave who is determined to to rescue his beloved Broomhilda, who may be played by Foxx's co-star in "Ray," Kerry Washington. A German Bounty hunter, played by "Inglourious Basterds" star Christoph Waltz, will aid Django on his quest to free his wife from the crazed slave master Calvin Candie, who will be played by "Titanic" star Leonardo DiCaprio. Candie's trusted right-hand will be played by Samuel L. Jackson.

The role of Django was originally offered to Will Smith, who declined. Other actors in the running for the role and auditioned included Terrence Howard, Chris Tucker, and Idris Elba.

Tarantino has also directed the films Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds, and Kill Bill 1&2.
