  • Django Unchained,” still the number one film outside of the US, has caused some of the most passionate discussions and debates in a long time.

    But something less controversial came up recently when Quentin Tarantino admitted Idris Elba was on the list of possible cast members, but he didn’t recruit him because he’s British.

    “Yeah, Idris is British and this is an American story. I think a problem with a lot of movies that deal with this issue is they cast British actors to play the Southerners and it goes a long way to distancing the movie. They put on their gargoyle masks and they do their phony accents and you are not telling an American story any more. They are just making hay of it, whether it be James Mason in Mandingo or Michael Caine in Hurry Sundown, they get British actors to do this.”
