Tarantino Hires His First Bastard

Quentin Tarantino's Inglorious Bastards has found its first cast member and dissapointingly it's director Eli Roth (Hostel) who will play Sgt. Donnie Donowitz, described as a "baseball bat-swinging Nazi hunter".

Roth who is friends with Tarantino played a small role in Death Proof.

Variety's article also confirms that Brad Pitt is in talks to play Aldo Raine, the leader of the film's band of Jewish soldiers who exact revenge on the Nazis who have occupied France. The cast is expected to be finalised shortly so that filming can get underway in the autumn.
