If Williams gets this part, he will join a cast that already includes (deep breath): Foxx, DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Samuel L. Jackson, Christoph Waltz, Kurt Russell, Don Johnson, the RZA, Anthony Lapaglia, Dennis Christopher, James Remar, Gerald McRaney, M.C. Gainey, Tom Wopat and possibly Sacha Baron Cohen.
The Quentin Tarantino-directed film is scheduled to hit theaters on Christmas Day 2012.
UPDATE: Per Deadline, the site that originally reported Williams's 'Django' involvement, the actor won't appear in the film because of scheduling conflicts with 'Boardwalk Empire.' Instead, he'll be seen in 'Snitch' opposite Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Williams's 'Django Unchained' role has reportedly been written out.
