Pegg is a Bastard too?

08.07.2008
Right after Brad Pitt was finally confirmed as starring in Quentin Tarantino's WWII flick INGLORIOUS BASTARDS (or BASTERDS), Variety dribbled out a few more names.

Perhaps most importantly to lovers of SPACED, SHAUN OF THE DEAD and all things geek, Simon Pegg's name was among them. Pegg is in talks to portray British lieutenant Hicox. That should help assuage anyone who wasn't overly excited about the casting thus far (Eli Roth and BJ Novak).

But wait, there's more! David Krumholtz (SERENITY's "Mr. Universe" and star of TV's NUMB3RS) is also on the list of Basterds, and Tarantino wants to resurrect the career of Natassja Kinski (CAT PEOPLE, TERMINAL VELOCITY) by including her as a German film actress assisting the Pitt crew of Nazi-killers.

The project is scheduled to start shooting in October; expect the blanks among the remainder of the cast to get filled in quickly.

Pitt in Bastards!!!! That's amazing... Pegg and Novak work for me. But when I read Roth in IB, I was hoping it was TIM and not Eli. But who knows, I'm sure it'll work.

QT has never let me down with his casting, and I don't think IB will be an exception. By the way, JAYBRO 7 Simon didn't direct 'DON'T', you are thinking of his pal Edgar Wright.

This is awesome news. I will agree about the cautious casting of Eli Roth...I'm pretty sure when it was posted that BJ Novak was going to be a bastard it didn't get any thumbs down.

Yes, Pegg is a great choice for that role. Yes, Krumholtz is a fabulous addition. What really, really gets me pumped is the prospect of Natassja Kinski playing the lovely role of the German actress. Who doesn't immediately fall in love with this woman? I'm going to watch Paris, Texas to celebrate. Casting is begining to really look good now.

I've been making my way through the script the last few days. So far, so good. Look, I AM one of those people saying "This film will be amazing". And the others like me who are saying the same thing: WE HAVE a basis for our statement. The basis is: Pulp Fiction, Resevoir Dogs, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill one and two, and a little film called Death Proof. That's my basis. For those who think Grind Houe sucked, well sorry, you obviously don't get it. Grindhouse was THE MOST FUN I have EVER had at a

Also, I think people are forgetting the fact that Simon Pegg directed the fake4 trailer called "Don't" tha played during Grindhouse. If you can, find it. It's fucking hilarious.

About Roth. Yes, him and Tarantino are good friends. But also, His fake trailer during Grindhouse, "Thanksgiving" was a horror masterpice and by far the strongest showing out of the fake trailers Brilliant stuff. Also, Eli ain't half bad in Death Proof, acting wise. Besides, If anyone can bring out a strong performance from him, it's Q.T.

SWEET!!

I love Pegg!! I was happy to hear about Eli Roth and BJ Novak, but now I am officially excited about this movie.

P.S. If you haven't seen it, watch Big Nothing (one of my fav Simon Pegg movies)

Man, I hope this turns out to be true. I would LOVE for Simon Pegg to be in this movie.

It would make me forget about the stupid casting of Eli Roth.

It's crazy how much news has come out for this thing in just the last few days. I really hope a lot of the casting rumors do end up being true (this one included). And as for Dicaprio's part, I think Tarantino wanted him as the crazy Jewish hunting nazi and so far all the casting has been Allied soldiers.

Jesus H... This thing is gathering momentum quickly. Surely there has to be a cranky old sonofabitch role in there too, so I'll be interested to see who gets to do the honours for that role. It'd be nice to see Robert Redford back in action.

I don't know about this movie. Everyone says its gonna be amazing with no basis for their statements. I hope its good because I like Brad Pitt and would like for QT to do better than Grindhouse. But I havent seen anything about this movie (script, concept art, clip, whatever) to make me say anything, no less proclaim its amazingness.
