<i>Saturday Night Live</i>: Jamie Foxx Unfunny

I imagine that when Jamie Foxx got his script (or read his cue cards?

Tarantino and his A-list cast appeared in New York recently and spoke to the press about the origins of the project, what it was like to shoot the movie on an actual plantation and why Django Unchained is ultimately a superhero movie.
