Director Quentin Tarantino's Western Django Unchained has been shooting since mid-January, but it's never too late to add a new cast member. Oscar-nominated actor Jonah Hill has signed on to portray an unspecified character.

The actor had been in talks last year to play Scotty Harmony, who loses Django's wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) to plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). He was forced to drop out due to scheduling issues, but now he's back in another role. Ironically, we reported last month that Sacha Baron Cohen departed from the project, after signing on to play Scotty back in November.

Jamie Foxx stars as Django, a freed slave who teams up with a German bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) to reunite with his wife. Quentin Tarantino is directing from his own original screenplay.
