Brad Pitt Is a Confirmed Bastard

It seems that the rumors have proved to be true, Brad Pitt will star in Quentin Tarantino's Inglorious Bastards. As Variety reports, the film, which seems like a slight departure from Tarantino's normal fare, is a WWII drama in which Pitt will play a "Tennessee hillbilly who assembles a team of eight Jewish-American soldiers to take on the Nazis." Interestingly, Pitt's part will also be one of the film's few English-speaking roles, as the majority of it will be shot in French or German with English subtitles.

In addition to the other rumor, that Leonardo DiCaprio is still slated to join, several other actors are now suspected to be cast. Nastassja Kinski may play one of the movie's few female characters, with Simon Pegg in talks to portray a British lieutenant and David Krumholtz (Benji from Superbad) and B.J. Novak (The Office) potentially joining as members of Pitt's army.

This is certainly turning into an interesting project. I'm a fan of Tarantino's work, and with Pitt on board, I'm even more excited. How about you?

OOPS! I thought I'd read Simon REX to play the non-Jewish character. I have no idea who Simon Pegg is.... But I do think I still have a point in there. How often do you see these Jewish actors cast in Jewish roles: Scott Speedman (Felicity), David Duchovny, Adam Brody (Rachel Bilson is too), Scarlett Johannsen, Emmy Rossum, Sean Penn, Zach Braff, ZACH EFRON, Ian Ziering, Jamie Lynn Sigler, Rachel Weisz, Daryl Hannah, Matthew Broderick, Sarah Jessica Parker (1/2), Helen Hunt, Hank Azaria, Amanda Bynes, Shia LaBeouf, Mili Avital, Kate and Oliver Hudson (1/2), Gwyneth Paltrow (1/2), and Jake and Maggie Gylenhaal??? VS. How often do you these these other Jewish actors cast in NON-Jewish roles: Woody Allen, Jonah Hill, David Schwimmer, and Seth Rogan (Jonah's buddy), Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David.... Hmmm.......... Thanks for reading! :) xoxo, VSug

It irritates how hollywood still has this "jewish look - persona" thing...How disgustingly ironic to bring that into a movie that has to do with the Holocaust. SIMON PEGG IS JEWISH...why is he cast as a British soldier, but not as a Jew, with the American Jew character (the one they mention) going to Jonah Hill. Hmmm....... Don't get me wrong, am a BIG fan of Jonah's. But, as a representative of the "Jewish Look & Persona"....why not try most of the actors who are Jewish as your sample pool: Gene Hackman, Wentworth Miller (as he un-apologetically proclaimed during a tourist visit to Israel and meeting with Rabbis), Harrison Ford (1/2), Paul Newman (1/2), Nikky Hilton's gorgeous and sweet beau (can't remember his name), Rachel Weisz (oop, she's a girl ;-) Well, I think I've made my point. If not, private message me and I'll be glad to inform.

DiCaprio has been working out lately, by the look of those shots I saw the other day. Won't surprise me a bit if this is the reason why. Interesting, I'll withhold opinion until I know more!

Oh wow. I can see this turning into an Oscar nom movie for several of these stars - especially Brad - very quickly. Good for them!

More excited Simon Pegg and Brad is excellent. There was a rumor that Paul Walker was going to be in this at one time too. That would have been some serious hottness on one screen.

all I care about is that Michael Madsen is in that movie. And he'd better is, QT!

Hmm, this does sound interesting. Apparently Daniel Brühl is also being considered, as are Til Schweiger and Ulrich Tukur.
