Django Unchained Loses Cast Member

Calling the production of Django Unchained “out of control”, Anthony Lapaglia leaves the cast.

“The production was just out of control, over-budget, it was everywhere. I had to formally withdraw. They recast it and they still haven’t shot anything. I could have said nothing and just hung out, I could be there shooting it now… The people at Django, their attitude more or less was, ‘Just dump the other film,’ but I couldn’t do it out of respect to Rob Connolly, out of respect to the material, out of respect to the commitment I’d made.”

“I’m just happy I got it,” said LaPaglia, who had rehearsed his part with Tarantino and Foxx. “I had as much fun being a part of the film, probably more fun, than even shooting it. Quentin is brilliant and I love him. That’s just the way it goes”
