Another Bastard On Board
Til Schweiger's off to war
Another day, another addition to Quentin Tarantino's ever-growing cast of Inglorious Bastards. Surely by now, he's providing work for half of Hollywood - don't be surprised to see Pauly Shore added to the roll call before the week is out!
The latest signee on the dotted line is German star Til Schweiger (the professional badass from King Arthur and Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle Of Life), who will play a German recruited into the team headed by Brad Pitt's character, Lt. Aldo Raine.
The World War II-set movie revolves around a French girl's revenge plot against the Nazis and her fateful meeting with a band of American soldiers on an equally bloody mission.
Yesterday it was announced that Diane Kruger has joined the cast as a glamorous German actress, while recent recruits include the likes of Christoph Waltz, Daniel Bruhl, Eli Roth, Mike Myers, Michael Fassbender, B.J. Novak, Samm Levine and Paul Rust.
Inglorious Bastards starts shooting in Germany on October 13.
