The actress - who will star in Shonda Rhimes' Scandal on ABC in 2012 - will portray Broomhilda in Quentin Tarantino's wildly anticipated next film, Django Unchained. The character is the wife of Jamie Foxx's Django, a recently-freed slave who is taught the bounty hunter trade by Christoph Waltz... but who just wants to be reunited with his spouse, who remains under the evil ownership of Leonardo DiCaprio's Calvin Candie.

Django Unchained also stars Kevin Costner and Samuel L. Jackson, sounds incredible, and will be released on Christmas Day 2012.

Calvin Candie: Soft-hearted Frenchy?
Dr. King Schultz: Alexander Dumas is black.
