The trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’ showed us something we haven’t seen before: A sadistic side of Leonardo DiCaprio. Oh, we’ve see DiCaprio unhinged before. Scorsese taps into an animalistic side of the Oscar-nominated actor at regular intervals. (Rent ‘Shutter Island’ or ‘Gangs of New York’ for examples.) But the Leo on display in Tarantino’s film is … different. He’s crazy. And he’s loving it.

Well, as luck would have it, a good eight months later, Hill's schedule has cleared up and he's back in 'Django' for a supporting role.

Back when Quentin Tarantino was sprinting through the casting process on his upcoming ‘Django Unchained,’ an unconventional name was attached to the lead role of a vengeful slave seeking to free his wife from a vicious plantation owner. That name was Will Smith, Mr. “Getting Jiggy With It,” who was rumored to be willing to tarnish his clean-cut image to get down and dirty with Tarantino for the benefit of a potentially controversial project. Smith eventually passed, though, and the part went to Jamie Foxx.
Today, Smith explains why.

The trailer for 'Django Unchained' is magnificent. Any film by Quentin Tarantino is a reason for movie fans to celebrate, but a Quentin Tarantino movie about a freed slave turned bounty hunter who goes after the scumbags who stole his wife? Let's get in line right now. Seriously. Let's do it. Since we're so impatient for a film that's still six months away, we took a frame-by-frame look through the trailer.

Michael Riva, an award winning production designer who unfortunately passed on today at the age of 63.
