After a raft of casting that has seen pretty much every role big and small get filled, the one big question mark remaining for Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" was who would take on the part of Broomhilda, the lead character's slave wife who is sold off and raped, setting Django on his mission to find her. Well, it's been cast and the name is one that has been kicking around for a while.

Well, here's a pretty easy case of connect-the-dots. We just finished reporting that Joseph Gordon-Levitt's "Premium Rush" had been moved from January 13, 2012 to August 24, 2012 and we figured maybe it was a tactic by Sony to get the film some additional heat after the actor's turn next summer in "The Dark Knight Rises." However, with Variety reporting that JGL is now in talks for a role in Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" they add, "he'll have to sort out several scheduling issues that could prevent him from participating." You see where we're going with this?

With Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio and Christoph Waltz in the lead roles of "Django Unchained," Quentin Tarantino can pretty much cast whoever the fuck he wants in the rest of the movie, so no surprise he's been favoring smaller/forgotten/veteran/cult names for the rest of the parts. And now he's added another.

Christoph Waltz Is Injured During Pre-ProductionAs usual, the casting for Quentin Tarantino's next movie is a mix of big-name stars, respected character actors and random people we totally forgot about. And there is also a fourth category: "Hey, it's that's guy." Which brings right to M.C. Gainey, whose familiar face Variety is reporting is in talks for "Django Unchained" in the role of Big John Brittle.

And 'Kill Bill' Vet Laura Cayouette Comes On Board As WellWe hope Quentin Tarantino appreciates how reliable Kurt Russell is. The director originally cast Mickey Rourke as the psychotic Stuntman Mike in his indulgent nadir "Death Proof," but Rourke and Tarantino seemed to fall out before filming began. Russell, the iconic lead of '80s pictures like "The Thing" and "Big Trouble In Little China," stepped in, to great effect, and was easily the best thing in the film. Now, five years on, Russell seems to have repeated the favor.
