The Django Unchained cast was in Cancun this weekend for Summer of Sony Spring Edition Party. They were there to promote Django Unchained and have some fun, too. Jamie Foxx was especially talkative, and told reporters how he believes that his horse, who was included in the film, helped him win the role of Django.
“I think great projects like this parallel your life. About four years ago, I got a horse. When I met Quentin Tarantino (to be considered for the role), I said, ‘I happen to have my own horse’.”
Tarantino also revealed how he how chose Foxx for the part:
“I had no idea who was going to play it, so I met with six different actors,” said Tarantino. “Jamie came to my house and I was going to put him through the ringer and really test him out. He was the last one I saw. You just know when you meet the guy and I met the guy. He understood and he was the cowboy.”
