Keeping It 140 w/Kyra

Halp Wanted: Tyrese in Django, Unchained Audition

I was not exactly a superfan of Django, Unchained.  That was no secret, as you can see on my personal site right HERE.

But whatever I thought of the film, I am grateful to Quentin Tarantino that he did not cast one Tyrese Gibson.

His over-emoting, dust-covered, park district cave-using, slap happy portrayal of the titular character looks like something out of a Will Ferrell parody.  And the accent?  Foghorn Leghorn is somewhere demanding his drawl back.

But you go ahead and check it out for yourself.  Thank you, Interwebs for delivering this bounty unto us.
