Kevin Costner Up For Villain Role In Tarantino’s Django Unchained
It looks like Kevin Costner is going to get himself “Tarantino’d,” and not a moment too soon for the Oscar-winning star of Dances With Wolves. He’s apparently in talks for a role in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Western Django Unchained, according to an unnamed source speaking to The Wrap.
If cast, Costner will play Ace Woody, a henchman doing bad deeds in the service of Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio), the film’s primary antagonist. This presumably means that Costner will face off at some point with the heroic duo of Christoph Waltz, a German bounty hunter, and Jamie Foxx, the slave he’s purchased to identify his target.
Awesometown. First Costner joins Man of Steel as Pa Kent and now Tarantino’s going to turn him into a badass.
