    Will Smith Rejected 'Django Unchained' Because Role Wasn't Big Enough

    Will Smith is blunt about his reasons for rejecting the role of Django in "Django Unchained."
    Smith told Entertainment Weekly that the lead part, a slave out for revenge, wasn't big enough.
    "Django wasn't the lead, so it was like, I need to be the lead," Smith said. "The other character was the lead!"
    As EW points out, Smith disagrees with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which bestowed a Best Supporting Actor prize on Christoph Waltz for his role as a suave bounty hunter in the Quentin Tarantino film.

    Didn't mean to exclude you bro. Therious, you and I agreed with this early on, lol... Nobody talked about the bounty hunter in our popular Thread on DJango, if so, I missed it.


    Peace In,
