Kevin Costner drops Django Unchained

Kevin Costner has dropped out of Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained. He was to play Ace Woody, right-hand man to evil plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). The movie stars Jamie Foxx as freed slave Django, with the help of a German bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz), seting out to free his wife from Candie. Samuel L. Jackson also has a role.

I was looking forward to seeing Costner unleash in QT's world, so who should replace him? I would enjoy seeing QT alum Kurt Russell (Death Proof) or Michael Keaton (Jackie Brown) come back. Maybe Woody Harrelson, who did Natural Born Killers which was written by but not directed by QT. Who's someone who would not be an obvious choice but might be able to let loose in QT's world? Anthony Edwards? Anthony LaPaglia? Ed Harris? Colin Farrell? Brian Van Holt? Bryan Cranston? Andrew McCarthy? Powers Boothe?
