Costner, who normally plays good guys, will be playing the thoroughly despicable Ace Woody, the man who trains the slaves owned by Leonardo DiCaprio’s Calvin Candie to fight gladiatorial-style for his own amusement. He will be one of those who stand in the way of Jamie Foxx’s freed slave Django from being reunited with his wife. I’m not sure that I would want to be standing where Woody is standing.
The cast also sports Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz.
This is the second high profile gig that Costner has landed recently, although his role as Pa Kent in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman film The Man Of Steel is pretty much the polar opposite.
