Django Unchained: One bit that confused me (SPOILERS)
 

 
Do not scroll over the black text field if you haven't seen Django Unchained yet. Spoiler warning in full effect.

So at the beginning of the movie, Dr. Schultz buys Django off of the Speck brothers who look real dirty with long beards etc. In the confrontation following the purchase of Django, he shots one of the Speck brothers (played by James Remar who some might recognized as playing Harry Morgan on Dexter) in the head k!lling him. Fast forward to when Schultz and Django finally come into the company of Calvin Candie (DiCaprio's character) and there's James Remar again playing a second character called Butch who is only sporting a mustache and upper class clothes.

This scene takes place in doors and Butch is the only person wearing a hat indoors (which is frowned about as noted earlier in the movie) presumably hiding a missing chuck of the top of his head. As I'm watching and waiting for the movie to progress, I'm a.ssuming that there's going to be some sort of reveal of how Butch survived during the Mexican Standoff towards the end of the film when he's got his sawed off shot gun pointed at Broomhilda (Kerry Washington). But no such reveal was made and Butch is k!lled during the standoff.

So my question is what gives? What was the point of having one actor play two seperate characters? On IMDb, James Remar is credited for playing two roles.

Any theories or explanations for why Tarantino would do this? It's not like he couldn't cast two actors for each role. image

Loved this movie. 9.5/10

Yeah but From Dusk Til Dawn was directed by Robert Rodriguez.

Yes I know Tarantino wrote the script but still the director gets the final say.
