Sacha Baron Cohen Joins Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’

Sacha Baron Cohen aka Ali G/Borat/Bruno has joined the cast of Quentin Tarantino’s new spaghetti western, ‘Django Unchained.’

The star-studded cast already includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Samuel L. Jackson, Christoph Waltz, Kurt Russell, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, RZA, Don Johnson, and many more.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cohen will fill a “minor but shadowy role”, a ruthless gambler who purchases Django’s (Jamie Foxx) enslaved wife.

“Though the part is small, sources said Tarantino was very particular on who he wanted to play it, given the character’s importance to the story,” reports Variety.

'Django Unchained' follows the title-character, Django, a slave-turned-bounty hunter, who under the mentorship of Christoph Waltz’ character, sets out on a path of destruction to free his wife from Calvin Candie (DiCaprio), a Mississippi plantation owner.

‘Django Unchained’ is based upon the 1960’s film entitled ‘Django’, and is set for a December 26, 2012 release.
