Quentin Tarantino has created some seriously evil villains in the past, from Mr. Blonde in Reservoir Dogs to Stuntman Mike in Death Proof, but the sadistic asshole Big John Brittle in the upcoming Django Unchained may prove to be the worst one yet. Today it was announced that the director may have found someone to play him.

Variety reports that M.C. Gainey, a character actor best known for his roles in movies like Con Air and TV shows like Lost, is now in talks to play Brittle in Tarantino's "southern." Nefarious acts committed by the character include branding Django's (Jamie Foxx) cheek with the letter "R" (standing for runaway) and raping his wife, Broomhilda. The character is also connected to the German bounty hunter, Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz), who has been hired to track Brittle and his brothers down.

In addition to Foxx and Waltz, the film is also set to star Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Gerald McRaney, Dennis Christopher and Laura Cayouette. It was reported on Friday that Kurt Russell may join the cast to replace Kevin Costner as Ace Woody. The project is gearing up to go into production this November and is scheduled to be released on December 25, 2012.

Gainey has spent a good amount of his career playing redneck characters, so it's really only fitting that he would find a role in this movie. The only thing I don't understand is why we have yet to hear any casting announcement for Broomhilda. It's been months since Kerry Washington's name was first floated, but there hasn't been any news on that front since. Perhaps Tarantino is keeping it a secret for a reason.
