Illustration for article titled iThe Hateful Eight /iofficially has its cast (yes, Channing Tatum will be there)

As we told you yesterday, Channing Tatum has been gunning for a role in Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, and Channing Tatum gets what Channing Tatum wants, even if he has to dress up like a SWAT officer with a poor understanding of safety protocol to get it. This was presumably not necessary, and it was on the basis of his acting talent that Tatum was officially offered a role in the now-finalized cast of Tarantino’s eighth film.


Mexican actor Demian Bichir, who was nominated for an Oscar in 2012 for his role in A Better Life, has also joined the cast. According to Variety, that means your Hateful Eight are:

  • Samuel L. Jackson—Major Marquis Warren
  • Kurt Russell— John “The Hangman” Ruth
  • Jennifer Jason Leigh—Daisy Domergue
  • Walton Goggins —Chris Mannix
  • Demian Bichir— Bob
  • Tim Roth— Oswaldo Mobray
  • Michael Madsen— Joe Gage
  • Bruce Dern—General Sanford Smithers

The nature of ninth wheel Tatum’s role has not yet been revealed, but we assume he’s a pretty agreeable guy. This will be Tatum, Bichir, and Leigh’s first trip to the Tarantinoverse. Production on The Hateful Eight is set to begin in Colorado next month.
