Although reported to have been cast in Quentin Tarantino’s now-in-production Django Unchained, the actor’s response indicates it’s not yet a done deal: “I hope so! I really want to do it, man.”

He’s exactly who I wanted him to be, and that doesn’t always happen when you meet your heroes. He’s totally that guy! He’s so enthusiastic, good-natured, and just loves f***in’ movies.”
Then there’s Mr. Blonde’s little dance routine, which Madsen performs with exactly the right degree of half-assed mockery. Given this showcase—it’s just him and someone who’s bound and gagged—a lot of actors would choose to showboat, really cut some moves. Madsen understands that Mr. Blonde is terrifying because he doesn’t give a shit, which means he isn’t gonna expend any real energy even on a performance expressly designed to humiliate a torture victim. He doesn’t so much dance as just kinda shuffle a little, doing the absolute minimum necessary to convey rhythmic movement.
