The Django Unchained director has been selected as the 2014 Celebrity Monarch and will lead a 27-float procession through the city's streets on the Monday night before Mardi Gras (03Mar14).

Veteran rockers Cheap Trick and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and The Party Crashers will be among the performers at the street party.
Actors Gary Sinise and Mariska Hargitay presided over the crowds at last year's (13) Orpheus event, which was co-founded by New Orleans native Harry Connick, Jr. in 1993. Whoopi Goldberg, Sandra Bullock, Stevie Wonder and Cyndi Lauper have all taken part in the fun in previous years.
