Sacha Baron Cohen For Django Unchained

Sacha Baron Cohen is the latest star set to join the cast of Tarantino’s upcoming Western Django Unchained.

For those of you who don’t already know, the spaghetti western features a ridiculously stacked cast including Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, Cristoph Waltz, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Samuel L Jackson and Kurt Russell.

The title character, played by Foxx, is a slave turned bounty hunter on a quest to free his wife (Washington) from the clutches of an evil slaveholder (DiCaprio). Cohen will be taking on the role of Scotty, a gambler who buys Django’s wife. Although it’s a small part, Da Ali G Show star was Tarantino’s number one choice from the beginning.

Shooting for Django Unchained is scheduled to start in January.
