Deadline is reporting that Don Johnson has been offered the role of Spence Bennett is Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. It is unclear if Johnson will indeed sign on to the film, but you would have a hard time finding reasons why he wouldn’t. Tarantino has reportedly been eyeing Johnson for the role for quite some time and hopefully he’ll get his man.
Like all of Tarantino’s casting, this is pretty spot on, at least from what I have read in the script. Hopefully we won’t have to wait long for Johnson to accept the role or for other circling cast members(Kurt Russell, Michael K. WIlliams, M.C. Gainey, Kerry Washington and Treat Williams) to sign on officially.
Django Unchained stars Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson, Dennis Christopher, Gerald McRaney and Laura Cayouette and is in cinemas on December 25th, 2012.
