Sacha Baron Cohen Will Be A Gambler
For Tarantino's Django Unchained

Sacha Baron Cohen Will Be A Gambler

Most of Sacha Baron Cohen’s career has been a gamble, usually because it involves making fun of people to their faces and risking lawsuits everywhere he turns. But for Quentin Tarantino, it seems he’s ready to play a gambler on screen and is set to join the ever-expanding cast of Django Unchained.

As we mentioned recently, QT is now filling the many smaller roles for the Spaghetti Western-influenced bounty hunter thriller, which follows the titular freed slave (Jamie Foxx) on a mission to rescue his wife from the clutches of a very bad man (Leonardo DiCaprio).
 
Along the way, Django will tangle with Scotty, a hustler who buys the aforementioned wife, Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), as a companion. We doubt he’ll come to a good end. But even though he’s only a relatively minor part, he’s an important one according to Variety, and Tarantino specifically sought Cohen for the role.
 
He’ll appear in the movie with Christoph Waltz, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Samuel L Jackson, Kurt Russell, James Remar, Tom Savini, Anthony LaPaglia, Don Johnson and many more. Django Unchained starts shooting in January.

Scotty
I guess QT rewrote the character for Cohen because in the script, Scotty was a shy 24-year old fat kid. More
