Quentin Tarantino Recruits Kevin Costner To Join Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L Jackson For Django Unchained

Quentin Tarantino never has trouble putting together good casts for his films, but his Sergio Leone-style Spaghetti Western Django Unchained is turning out to be quite something.

Kevin Costner is in negotiations to join a cast that is headed by Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson and Leonardo DiCaprio. Costner is in talks to play Ace Woody, and it's a real surprise turn for an actor most associated with good guy roles.
