Legendary director Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained is exactly what the trailer promises – exciting, violent, satirical, vengeful and shocking – for the entire 2 hour and 45 minute run time.  Starring Jamie Foxx as a newly freed slave who sets out with an unlikely partner (dentist-turned-bounty-hunter Christoph Waltz) to find and rescue his wife (Kerry Washington), Django Unchained follows the duo as they track her to a plantation owned by vicious playboy Calvin Candie (a ferocious Leonardo DiCaprio), whose long time family slave, Stephen (an almost unrecognizable Samuel L. Jackson), is also out for blood.  Fans of the director will not be disappointed; this film is everything we hoped for and more.  Click here to watch three clips and here’s all our previous coverage.

At the New York press day, Waltz talked about how Tarantino chose him for the role, deleted scenes and why he’s happy with the final product, how much changed on set and more.  In addition, while Waltz ended up not starring in The Muppet sequel, he revealed that he’s probably doing a cameo and it sounds like it involves dancing with Miss Piggy! Hit the jump to see what he had to say.
