Django Unchained might be one of the best pictures of 2012, but it wasn't easy for the cast in making it.
He talked about a story where Leo cut his hand on a shot glass and kept filming, as well as his struggle to use the N-word during a rehersal with the rest of the cast.
He said of the experience:
“We were in rehearsals and Leo’s saying his line, ‘n***er this, n***er that. Then Samuel pulls him aside and says, ‘Hey motherf***er, this is just another Tuesday for us, let’s go.”
He even revealed he was used to hearing the N-word in that context growing up in the south:
“There are racial components in the south, me being called n***er growing up as a kid,” he revealed. “So when I read the script, I didn’t knee jerk to the word ‘n***er’ like somebody from New York or L.A. would knee jerk because that was something I experienced.”
It sounds like the cast had a blast on set, even if they were taken out of their comfort zones.
