“Django Unchained,” the Best Picture-nominated film from writer-director Quentin Tarantino, features Rex Linn, a former Oklahoma City resident and graduate of Casady School.
Tennessee Harry is the name of Linn's character in the film — a member of a mounted, marauding mob of hood-wearing, torch-bearing plantation overseers who are out to track down the ex-slave-turned-bounty-hunter of the title, played by Jamie Foxx.
Linn's major roles include his regular appearances as Det. Frank Tripp in “CSI: Miami,” and performances in “Cliffhanger,” “Wyatt Earp,” “Tin Cup,” “Breakdown” and “Ghosts of Mississippi.”
