Michael K. Williams may have missed out on the lead role of Django Unchained, but it seems there may still be room for him to appear in a different capacity. In an interview with Shadow & Act (via The Playlist), the The Wire actor┬áconfirmed that he had just barely lost the lead role to Jamie Foxx, but that director Quentin Tarantino (or “QT, as I call him”) liked Williams enough to consider creating a new role just for him. “It’s not official yet but there’s a lot of talk that there may be a role coming back ’round my way,’” he told the site. “His people and my people have been in discussions in regards to a role that he is creating for me.”

The Playlist points out that the only major black role still uncast is that of Bartholemew, but that the hulking, silent bodyguard probably wouldn’t be an ideal fit for Williams. However, it’s possible that the character could be rewritten to better suit Williams, or that Tarantino will add a new character altogether.

After the jump, new gigs for Charlize Theron, Paula Patton, and Leven Rambin.
