It's official: Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained is getting Joseph Gordon Levitt and Anthony LaPaglia to play hick Australian brothers; small parts, but crucial, reports ThePlaylist, to key scenes at the end of the script. (LaPaglia is an Aussie.)

Who wouldn't want to play any part in a Tarantino movie? Gordon-Levitt's schedule shifted to accommodate his role in Django, which will shoot in New Orleans starting in January. These actors join Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell and Don Johnson. Here's the synopsis and more on how the cast came together.

The Weinsteins are lined up to distribute the film in the US, and Sony is handling foreign distribution. We. Can’t. Wait.

    Anthony LaPaglia plays JGL's brother kinda old? He should play his father-roles.

    The DJANGO UNCHAINED script has been doing the rounds via emails for the past while. I found it to be, shall I say, the sort of thing that a Tarantino wannabe would put together. There are moments here and there but it is repetitive, long and, as always, verbose. Having said that though, when I read IG long before it was released, I found that too was repetitive, long and verbose and look at that for box-office. I used to be a fan, but that ended pretty much around the time of reading the very repetitive, long and verbose script for Kill Bill. And look at those two for box-office.
