Just like Alfred Hitchcock, Quentin Tarantino too likes to appear in most of his films, even if it’s only for minutes. Therefore it isn’t surprising that he has written himself into Django Unchained too, albeit for a cameo. Turns out, Tarantino just couldn’t resist writing himself into a scene in the film, as it reportedly had great comic value.

Rex Linn who plays the part of Tennessee Harry in the film actually revealed this when he said   ”Quentin told me that he liked the scene so much he wanted to be in it too, and that he would also be taking some of my lines,”. “So, you’ll know the scenes when you see them. We’ll be on the screen with Don Johnson and Jonah Hill. The scenes may not be long, but you will remember them” he added. Linn on his part is best remembered for essaying the role of Detective Frank Tripp in CSI Miami. Django Unchained is about a slave-turned-bounty hunter who with the help of his mentor, sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner.

 Jaime Foxx is set to star as Django, with the role of his mentor being played by Christoph Waltz. The movie also shall see stalwarts like Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel. L. Jackson. Turns out, it was originally Will Smith, who Tarantino had envisioned as Django, when he wrote the film. But when Will gave the role a pass, Foxx was chosen instead. Actors like Chris Tucker and Idris Elba too were in consideration.

The title and setting of the film is inspired by the 1960s spaghetti western Django, and interestingly the original Django actor Franco Nero has a small role in the film. Well, going by the way Tarantino manages to makes the weirdest of stories extremely interesting and watchable, this movie too, seems all set to be a hit huge. As far as cameos are concerned, it would have been amazing if Tarantino regulars like Tim Roth and Michael Madsen had cameos in the film. Tarantino must surely have thought about it, when he was writing the film.
