Jonah Hill Rejoins Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained'


Jonah Hill


The actor turned down the role of Scotty Harmony last year for another work commitment but he has somehow worked out the schedule.

Although production has started and the trailers have been released, "Django Unchained" adds a new cast. Jonah Hill is now officially on board the Quentin Tarantino movie after previously turning down a role due to scheduling conflict with Ben Stiller's "The Watch".

According to Deadline, the Weinstein Company has confirmed Hill's involvement in the film but did not unleash the role he would be playing. One character to rule out is "Scotty Harmony, the kid who loses Django's slave wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) to Calvin Candie, a charming but utterly evil plantation owner, played by Leonardo DiCaprio."

Tarantino originally wanted Hill in the Scotty role because he fit the character's "chubby nerd" description. Sacha Baron Cohen was later put in the role although he seemed to be an odd choice but the director was willing to alter the character to fit the actor. Cohen eventually bowed out of the role as well.

"Django Unchained", starring Jamie Foxx in the titular role, will hit the U.S. screens on December 25 this year.
