An update to:
Kevin Costner Could Join ‘DJango Unchained’
So many of our articles are about the addition of cast members, that this story is a real departure from the norm. Unfortunately for the Django Unchained cast, Kevin Costner has backed out of his role. Due to scheduling conflicts, he will no longer take part in the film.
Costner was slated to play Ace Woody, the right hand man of Candland ranch owner, Calvin Candie. Woody is in charge of the fighting ring, where he pins the largest and most fit male slave against one another. This vulgar character role, is so different from the characters he’s known to play. It’s a bit of a let down, to see him give this up.
