Jonah Hill set for Django Unchained

Jonah Hill has scored a role in Quentin Tarantino‘s already-shooting Django Unchained, Deadline reports.

Hill was originally set to star as the fellow who loses Django’s (Jamie Foxx) slave wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) to plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). When scheduling conflicts interfered, Hill was replaced by Sacha Baron Cohen, who himself exited the picture recently.

It is understood that Hill will take on another role, the specifics of which are unknown at this time.

Though there’s always room for comedy in Tarantino’s films, it marks Hill’s third significant dramatic role since scoring an Oscar nod for Moneyball. He will also play opposite DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street, and has a lead role in journalism drama True Story.
