Jamie Foxx and Kerry Washington Talk DJANGO UNCHAINED, Deleted Scenes, the Casting Process and Foxx Talks About His Song in the Film

     December 26, 2012


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.  Jamie Foxx stars as Django, a newly freed slave who sets out with an unlikely partner, dentist-turned-bounty-hunter Dr. King Schultz, (Christoph Waltz) to find and rescue Django’s 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, Matt’s review, here’s all our previous coverage.

When we spoke to Foxx and Washington at the recent NYC press junket, they talked about how they got involved in the film, their initial reactions to the news they got the parts, Foxx’s process of writing a song for the soundtrack with Rick Ross, and deleted scenes they were sad to see go, including a scene between Jackson and Washington, and a longer scene with DiCaprio.  Continued after the jump.
