Sure, sure, sure. Samuel L. Jackson has finally confirmed he’ll team with Quentin Tarantino for a fifth time, but the real excitement coming from the bowels of Django Unchained is that Gerald McRaney has also secured a role.

Some may think McRaney could be the career Tarantino resurrects this time around, but he’s already come back strong with appearances in Get Low, The A-Team and the forthcoming Red Tails. There’s your indie, your action flick, and your historical prestige film. Now, he’ll be in a Tarantino slavesploitation movie. The superfecta.

The role is unknown at this point, according to /film, but McRaney is a veteran with a lot of chops, even though he usually finds himself playing the gruff military man. He’s clearly done more television work (crushing it as the star or co-star of stuff like Major Dad and Deadwood), but with the last few years, he’s almost doubled his movie credentials. The man has come a long way since being Bastian’s dad in The NeverEnding Story.
