Leonardo DiCaprio talks Django Unchained: exclusive video

Leonardo DiCaprio was one of several astonishing supporting actors in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained .

As he was so deeply immersed in his character - despicable plantation owner Calvin Candie - DiCaprio didn’t participate in a great many interviews in the build-up to the film’s release.

So, when we were offered an exclusive video featurette taken from the upcoming Blu-ray release, we snapped it up - and you can watch it below.

In the clip, DiCaprio discusses everything from working with Tarantino, to comparing his character to Louis XIV, to playing opposite Samuel L. Jackson.

Watch the video interview below:
