So Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" has saturated the web with its vengeance-seeking goodness courtesy Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz and Kerry Washington.

While Leo completes his bid to own your Christmas Day (when "Django" releases, in addition to his Baz Luhrmann-directed"The Great Gatsby"), it's undeniably Foxx's return to a leading man status.

Sure, palling around with Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day and Jason Bateman in"Horrible Bosses" was novel, but he hasn't taken the wheel like this since 2009's "The Soloist."

So which "Django" Jamie is your favorite? Check out some of ours, then watch the trailer below.

Naked Jamie: Obvious choice, but shirtless Jamie in some kind of wintry lake eyeing also-naked Kerry Washington? We're sold.

Shearling Jamie: After being hijacked from slave traders by Oscar winner Waltz, Foxx's Django is employed as a bounty hunter and promised his freedom in return. The shearling jacket he rocks while getting his job description looks like a prelude to various badass costumes (think Uma Therman's anonymous rags before she pulls on that yellow jumpsuit in "Kill Bill.")

Green Killing Machine Jamie: Like a high-fashion cowboy, Jamie's look gets way upgraded when he starts taking down plantation owners and such, like his all-purpose olive green jacket, suede-ish tan pants, studded hat and a cable knit scarf. It's assassin gear GQ would approve of. 

Purple Rain Jamie: In the trailer's dizziest moments, Jamie is donning some electric leisure suit that would make Prince jealous -- lacy bowtie and all. "I like the way you die, boy," Django cries firing a gun. We like the way you dye, Jamie. But why do our eyes hurt?
