Leonardo DiCaprio Plays A Nasty Villain In ‘Django Unchained’ [VIDEO]
No more Mr. Nice Guy. After holding numerous roles playing the good guy, especially the memorable Jack in “Titanic,” Leonardo DiCaprio is turning out to be a true villain as he plays a slave owner in the upcoming film, “Django Unchained.”
Set in the pre-Civil War South, Leonardo’s character named Calvin Candie is a plantation owner who uses his slaves for prize fights to the death. It’s a role we aren’t used to seeing from the Hollywood heartthrob.
The Quentin Tarantino film, which could stir up some controversy, also stars Jamie Foxx as a freed slave on a mission to save his wife from servitude. The trailer makes it clear that the topic of slavery will not be swept under the rug, evident from the bruises and scars seen on Jamie’s body.
Fans of Leonardo can expect a giant Christmas present this year. Both “Django Unchained” and “The Great Gatsby” hit theaters nationwide December 25. Checkout the trailer for “Django” below and let us know what you think of this different kind of Leo.
