As Django Unchained prepares for its year-end release, news has broken about one more addition to the already star-studded cast. Rex Linn, who plays Tennessee Harry in the film, recently revealed that Quentin Tarantino himself would appear in a small role — as he has in several of his other directorial efforts, including Inglourious Basterds, Death Proof, Pulp Fiction, and Reservoir Dogs.

Whether that film could be the upcoming First Class sequel or a fourth X-Men title, if anything at all, is open to question. Read More »
