Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington and Samuel L. Jackson appeared on BET’s “106 & Park” to discuss the anticipated movie “Django Unchained” Monday.
In video below, all three discuss the importance of this particular film, the history behind it and some of the struggles they went though while filming in Louisiana.
“We struggled. Jamie and I would be up at four in the morning texting each other like “I can’t sleep,” thinking about the scene we had to do the next day, the next week or the next month,” says Kerry Washington.
Revealing a disturbing fact, Jamie Foxx says there are people who don’t know about plantations and the history of slavery.
“A lot of people didn’t even know that we had plantations,” Foxx says of interacting with some Louisiana residents. “With movies about slavery, it’s not a lot that comes through so I hope that people go and check this film out and grab some history about what slavery was about.”
