Brad Pitt officially has gone inglorious.The actor has joined the cast of Quentin Tarantino's "Inglorious Bastards," signing on to play Lt. Aldo Raine, the head of the Jewish resistance in the writer/director's World War II film.
Additionally, British actor Simon Pegg ("Hot Fuzz") is in discussions to join the cast. Pitt's character is a Southern rebel who leads a band of eight Jewish American soldiers as they exact vengeance on Nazis in German-occupied France.
Quentin has been working on this script for YEARS. It will be fun to see Brad in a Quentin movie! Simon Pegg is one of my favorites, and he will be a riot in a Quentin film. Hot Fuzz is one of my favorite movies ever!
