Bummer! Though once mooted for the lead role that eventually went to Jamie Foxx, Quentin Taraninto has long had his eye on Michael K. Williams (aka Omar from "The Wire") for a role in "Django Unchained." The actor himself chatted up the prospect of starring in the movie, saying earlier this year that the director was writing a part for him and following that up shortly thereafter with the tease that his participation looked "good to go." But a long time has past since, with a ton of casting along the way and unfortunately, Williams won't be in the film.

Well, wow. With the recent bits and bobs of casting finding Quentin Tarantino flipping through his TV Guide to cast actors from shows he watches on Nick At Nite to round out "Django Unchained," it seems he had one major piece of casting news up his sleeve.

In case you forgot, Quentin Tarantino, among many other things, is a "CSI" fan. You may remember that a few years ago, Tarantino made a rare TV venture, directing "Grave Danger," the two episode season five finale of show. Well, it appears he watches the spinoff shows as well.

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?
