Sacha Baron Cohen was forced to pull out of 'Django Unchained'

WENN

Funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen was forced to drop out of Quentin Tarantino's western "Django Unchained" because he didn't have time to shoot a scene between editing and releasing "The Dictator" and filming "Les Misérables."

Cohen admits it was a tough decision to let Tarantino down and pull out of the project, but he knew he wouldn't be able to give the director his all as boozy gambler Scotty Harmony. Cohen tells Deadline.com, "I was editing 'The Dictator,' and we were very close to release and Paramount wouldn't push the date, and then I knew I'd have to jump straight from there into 'Les Mis.' It basically became a choice of either pulling out of 'Les Mis' or pulling out of 'Django.' I'm sure 'Django' is an incredible movie, but it was essentially one scene."

The character Scotty Harmony does not appear in the final version of "Django Unchained."

Well I think he is pretty funny and I can't wait to see him as Freddie Mercury.
