Gerald McRaney On For Django Unchained
Tarantino's added him to the Western

Gerald McRaney On For Django Unchained

Given that his planned November start date for shooting on Django Unchained is creeping ever closer, it’s no surprise to learn that Quentin Tarantino is continuing to fill out the cast. The latest name added to the roster is character actor Gerald McRaney.

A veteran of the superb and much-missed HBO Western series Deadwood, McRaney is joining a cast that includes Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz, Kevin Costner and Samuel L Jackson.

Django finds Foxx as the titular former slave, a man who heads out on a quest to free his wife Broomhilda from the clutches of nasty plantation owner Calvin Candie (DiCaprio). He’s helped on his mission by bounty hunter Dr King Schultz (Waltz).

There’s no word yet on who McRaney will play, though he can certainly do mean if called upon, so chances are he’s a villain. The actor was last seen in The A-Team and has a role in the upcoming Red Tails.

Tarantino’s latest pic will be out on December 26, 2012.
