In Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming movie, “Django Unchained,” Leonardo DiCaprio plays a dastardly plantation owner who snatches Jamie Foxx’s wife, played by Kerry Washington, setting off all sorts of Tarantino-esque violence ably aided by co-star Christoph Waltz (“Inglourious Basterds”).
In a new photo posted by EW, DiCaprio — as deranged plantation owner Calvin Candie — weilds a hammer and enjoys a little tobacco while his Rhett Butler-esque hair and devilish facial hair give off big-time bad boy (man) vibes. Candie, whose plantation is called “Candie Land,” likes to make his slaves fight each other to the death.
The alt-Western centers on Foxx, who struggles to break out of his slave status to go in search of Washington, who has been sold off to another plantation.
Foxx describes his character as, “Richard Roundtree meets Clint Eastwood.”
