Revealed: Why Will Smith refused to play the role of Django
Will Smith is one of Hollywood’s heaviest hitters. So when it was rumored that he was supposed to team up with Quentin Tarantino and play a slave it seemed like stuff of legend. Smith recently told Entertainment Weekly why he didn’t commit to the project.
“Django wasn’t the lead, so it was like, I need to be thelead. The other character was the lead! “I was like, ‘No, Quentin, please, I need to kill the bad guy!’”
Ironically, Jamie Foxx marketed as the film lead and his co-star Christoph Waltz was nominated for a supporting actor Oscar. This isn’t the first blockbuster film Smith turned down. He was in talks to play Neo in the Matrix trilogy.
