Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Quentin Tarantino has finally settled on an actress for Django’s wife in Django Unchained, his spaghetti western: Kerry Washington.
Washington is set to star as Broomhilda, the wife of Django (Jamie Foxx) for whom he ventures out to find with a German bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz). Washington is best known for a handful of roles, including as Alicia Masters in the Fantastic Four film, as Della Bea Robinson in Ray and as Nikki Tru in Chris Rock’s I Think I Love My Wife.
Washington joins Don Johnson, Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L Jackson and Chrisoph Waltz for the film, eyeing a 2012 release.

What does this mean? QT has said in the past he wanted an unknown but Deadline is reporting that she was the choice all along, apparently. Washington is a fine actress and has been good in the small parts of great films she’s been in; it’ll be interesting to see how good of a performacne Tarantino gets out of her since the only woman he’s really been able to get a great performance out of has been Uma Thurman.
What do you think? Is this the best casting move or do you think someone else would be better? Let us know below!
