    Samuel L. Jackson dares interviewer to say the n-word | PopWatch | EW.com

    A post on Reddit last night has unearthed a prime example. Two weeks ago, the Django Unchained cast sat down with Jake Hamilton, host of Houston’s Emmy-winning film show Jake’s Takes, at a press junket. Things went smoothly enough until Hamilton approached Jackson with a question about the movie’s controversial use of the “n-word.” Jackson insisted that Hamilton, who is white, say the word out loud; after Hamilton repeatedly refused, they moved on. It was uncomfortable.

    “The most awkward moment was just seeing everyone in the room freeze, and waiting to see what my reaction was going to be,” Hamilton says today.

    The internet reaction has been mixed. Many commenters claim that Hamilton should have simply said the word, while others applaud the reporter for not caving to Jackson’s demand. Hamilton says that his decision was in the best interest of the show and the network.

    “Whatever the video’s doing today, making the rounds, it’s not as bad as it would be if I had actually said it,” he says. “The last thing that my affiliate needs is one of their reporters going around saying the n-word and broadcasting it everywhere.”

    While it’d be easy to harbor some resentment for the provocation, Hamilton says that ultimately there’s no hard feelings between him and Jackson. “He doesn’t suffer any fools, and he’s the kind of guy I feel like I have to step up my game as a reporter,” he says. “I look forward to interviewing him again.”

    Watch the video below — Jackson’s segment starts at 13:55:

I said it again when Jonah Hill showed up, and I was glad his part was small because anything more would have been distracting. As always, Christoph Waltz couldn't possibly have been any better. When he asked for a pen and signed the sale papers, I was fully expecting him to stab DiCaprio in the neck with it, but I suppose a pistol up the sleeve was more appropriate. I could blabber on about him all day, but I'll spare everyone by just saying that watching him in the opening scene alone was worth the price of admission to me.

    And I refuse to listen to one more word out of Katt Williams until he goes to rehab and/or a mental treatment facility. If not, I think he'll find his way to prison or a morgue sometime in the near future.
    Me, I saw Dennis Christopher and I was thinking 'IT', and James Remar(in TWO parts) I couldn't help but think Albert Ganz...but the thoughts the same.

    I've never seen the original Django, so when the opening credits were rolling, in my mind I kept hearing the theme song in Japanese.

    Quentin Tarantino Vs. John Ford: ‘I Hate Him’ - Movieline

    Oddly enough, where I got the idea for the Klan guys [in Django Unchained] — they're not Klan yet, the Regulators arguing about the bags [on their heads] — as you may well know, director John Ford was one of the Klansmen in The Birth of a Nation, so I even speculate in the piece: Well, John Ford put on a Klan uniform for D.W. Griffith. What was that about? What did that take? He can't say he didn't know the material. Everybody knew The Clansman [on which Birth of a Nation was based] at that time as a piece of material.

    ...he put on the Klan uniform. He got on the horse. He rode hard to black subjugation. As I'm writing this — and he rode hard, and I'm sure the Klan hood was moving all over his head as he was riding and he was riding blind — I'm thinking, wow. That probably was the case. How come no one's ever thought of that before? Five years later, I'm writing the scene and all of a sudden it comes out.

    One of my American Western heroes is not John Ford, obviously. To say the least, I hate him. Forget about faceless Indians he killed like zombies. It really is people like that that kept alive this idea of Anglo-Saxon humanity compared to everybody else's humanity — and the idea that that's hogwash is a very new idea in relative terms. And you can see it in the cinema in the '30s and '40s — it's still there. And even in the '50s.

    Sweet!!!!

    This is Tarantino related in that he named his little distribution division at Miramax after this movie.



    And it's a good movie.

    Sacha Baron Cohen Chose 'Les Miserables' Over 'Django Unchained,' Explains What His Small Role Would Have Been | The Playlist

    So who was he going to play? "It was a character by the name of Scotty, whom Leonardo DiCaprio’s character plays a poker game with. The stakes become Scotty’s slave girl, Broomhilda," he said. But there's a bit more to it than that. It was a rather long, tangential flashback explaining how Broomhilda was sold to DiCaprio's Calvin Candie in the first place. The character was Scotty Harmony, who in early drafts was an overweight 24-year-old who comes into possession of Broomhilda thanks to his father, who buys her for him, to help boost his confidence. Harmony's also deeply enarmored by her, and this whole sequence tries to display another ugly secret of the racism of the south: the white men had no problems having black girlfriends known as Ponys in their underground clubs. Whether or not this is another historical fabrication of Tarantino's -- we haven't researched it enough -- it sure sounds like it. And as you know by now, the character and the scene didn't wind up making the final film anyway.
