Quentin Tarantino is a HUGE fan of Jennifer Lawrence, but decided NOT to cast her in his new movie. So what’s the deal?
A couple months ago J.Law was in contention for a phenomenal role as an insane criminal en route to the gallows in Tarantino’s new western The Hateful Eight. But, she didn’t snag the role. QT said:
“When I was looking for Daisy, I could have seen Jennifer Lawrence doing a good job with the role. I’m a very big fan of hers. I think she could end up being another little Bette Davis if she keeps on going the way she’s going. I think her work with David O. Russell is very reminiscent of William Wyler and Bette Davis’s.”
That being said…
“Daisy should be a little older. She should fit in with the guys. Jennifer Jason Leigh came in and was really good. She went for a couple of things that other people just kind of playacted. She had to act like she got shot, and she just screamed bloody murder. I kept remembering Jennifer’s bloodcurdling scream. If it had happened in a house, somebody would have called the cops.”
So who snagged it? Amber Tamblyn originated the role of Daisy Domergue during the staged live reading, but it went to Single White Female star Jennifer Jason Leigh, who is gonna KILL IT.
What do you think of JLaw being passed over?

Today we’re getting our first look at Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino’s new movie, ‘Django Unchained’.
DiCaprio looks awesome as a villainous plantation owner, who kidnaps Broomhilda (played by Kerry Washington), the wife of Jamie Foxx’s character.
“All Django wants to do is get his wife,” Foxx told EW’s about the new Quentin Tarantino film. “He’s not trying to cure or solve slavery. He just wants to get his life back.”
Foxx said that Tarantino’s tackles slavery in a way that few Westerns have ever attempted.
“There’s a beautiful way [Tarantino] found for the characters to talk to each other,” he said. “It’s mindblowing.”
For more on the film, including a first look at Foxx and Waltz in character, head over to EW.com.
“Django Unchained” is out in theaters on Christmas Day.

Vanessa Hudgens definitely looks like she’s ready to shed that Disney image in these new pictures from the latest Details Magazine. In the article, she opens up about getting ready for her new movie ‘Sucker Punch’, being hit on by Michael Caine, where she’s at with Zac Efron and an encounter with Quentin Tarantino. Read the full article here!
In training for her new movie, ‘Sucker Punch’:
“We trained with Navy Seals,” says Hudgens, who stands five feet four and weighs (I’m guessing) 100 pounds soaking wet. “We were machines. You could not f*ck with us. We’d all go running around Vancouver, where we filmed, to restaurants and bars and karaoke, like we owned it. We’d intentionally cruise back alleys, knowing that if anything did happen, we’d be all right. Taking the safest way home at that point was just boring.”
Vanessa Hudgens on costar (in the upcoming sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth) Michael Caine:
“He’s uh-mazing,” Hudgens says, habitually stretching that one word into two. “Not only is he uh-mazingly, stupidly talented, but he still kind of hits on me. All the time. If it was anybody else, I’d be like, ‘Who the hell do you think you are?’ But because it’s Michael Caine, I’m like, ‘Sock it to me more, baby, come on!’ Throughout this whole movie we’re trudging through the jungle. So, of course, we’re sweating. I can’t tell you how much time is spent putting oil on my chest. And Evian. Spraying Evian bottles on my chest and my arms and my forehead, but mostly my chest. Just to look like I’m sweating. But your boobs don’t really sweat, cleavage doesn’t sweat. So it’s kind of funny. But Michael’s always telling the makeup artists that he’ll take over and do it. I. Frickin’. Love. Him.”
Vanessa opens up about Zac Efron and more pics after the jump! (more…)
