Jackson and McRaney join Django Unchained

It’s been a little while since our last update regarding Quentin Tarantino’s next project, but we’re finding out that Sam Jackson has officially signed on to join the production and will be joined by Major Dad star Gerald McRaney.

While it had been believed that Samuel L. Jackson was attached to star in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained for some time, Variety says he has now officially signed on. The trade also says that Gerald McRaney (“Deadwood,” “Major Dad”) is on board. The two join a cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Kevin Costner. Jackson will play Stephen, a house slave and the right-hand man of a sadistic slavemaster. The trade did not mention which role McRaney would play. In Tarantino’s new film, the title character Django (Foxx) is a freed slave, who under the tutelage of a German bounty hunter (Waltz) becomes a badass bounty hunter himself.

I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical at first but it looks like that Tarantino and company are assembling an all-star cast for this latest film and it’s slowly, but steadily, exciting the nerd endings on the ‘radar’. I’m really looking forward to production start so we can see some visuals of the movie and the characters interacting with one another, as I’m really getting the impression that “good movie” vibe.
