Jamie Foxx has snagged the lead role in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming spaghetti western, “Django Unchained,” Deadline reports, making the Oscar-winner the latest big name addition to the film.

Foxx will be a freed slave who teams with a bounty hunter — to be played by Christoph Waltz, who won an Oscar in Tarantino’s last film, “Inglorious Basterds” — who sets out to rescue his wife from evil plantation owner Calvin Candie, according to the agency WME.
