The Kidd here...
Quentin Tarantino had his eyes set on Jonah Hill for a part in DJANGO UNCHAINED at one point, but due to some other projects that caused some scheduling issues, Hill wasn't able to make it work in order to be a part of the production.
However, now that some time has passed and some things have cleared, Deadline reports that Hill is back in the fold for DJANGO, although in a different role than he was originally being viewed for. In the beginning, it was the sweet Scotty Harmony, a small but pivotal part that has a hand in Django's wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) crossing paths with Leonardo DiCaprio's Calvin Candie. That role was then passed onto Sacha Baron Cohen, who was forced to drop out of the film not too long ago... but instead of handing the role back over to Hill, QT apparently has something else in mind.
