I hope to be surprised.
Ditto, WTF... I was hoping for Clooney as Django or maybe Russell Crowe. The problem with casting an African-American as lead is it's too far from history to be believable. There's a reason why there's no black outlaws in the west, bigotry and racism was still rife even after the Civil War. I can see how the klu klux klan storyline will be implemented, but an African-American outlaw would last only until they ran into white people, then game over. Hell, they used to hang people just for being black. I realize the above sounds kinda racist but it's not meant that way, but the thought of a back guy wandering around the old west with a gun and being left to it is a complete lie of American history. Though if members know otherwise, I have no problem being corrected.

PS. If there are members who find the above offensive I can assure you I am in no way, shape or form even the slightest bit racist, just don't like filmakers ignoring history for casting convenience.
