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.

“Quentin told me that he liked the scene so much he wanted to be in it, too, and that he would also be taking some of my lines,” Linn told Look At OKC. “So, you’ll know the scenes when you see them. We’ll be on the screen with Don Johnson and Jonah Hill. The scenes may not be long, but you will remember them.” [via The Playlist]
