Will Smith Dishes On Why He Turned Down Lead Role of 'Django Unchained'

1a9a7fede5dfd5b1d4066b4f1f8e6adf Will Smith Dishes On Why He Turned Down Lead Role of 'Django Unchained'

Movie fans may remember that at initial reports of Quentin Tarantino‘s controversial slavery film ‘Django Unchained‘s casting, rapper/actor Will Smith was touted as its lead.  However, by the time the film neared release, Jamie Foxx was cast as the movie‘s main character.

While not much fuss was made at the time, Smith recently acknowledged his decision to pass on the film.

Via Entertainment Weekly:

‘Django wasn’t the lead, so it was like, I need to be the lead,’ said Smith. ‘The other character was the lead! I was like, “No, Quentin, please, I need to kill the bad guy!”‘

The actor did later shower the film with praise and commend Jamie for his performance.

Your thoughts?
