Not to long ago, we were graced with the news that Kurt Russell was taking over Kevin Costner’s role of a “slave trainer” in Django Unchained. Today, we get news that Don “Heartbeat” Johnson himself will be joining Tarrentino’s latest. According to Empire, Mr. Miami Vice will be playing a wealthy plantation owner who oversees a group of black prostitutes or “ponies” as they’re called in Tarrantino’s universe. I will never look at My Little Ponies the same after this.
First Kurt Russell, now Don Johnson? What will be the next irrelevant 80’s icon? My guess … Tom ‘effin Selleck.[Via Empire]
