Okay, now that I’ve gotten my anger at The Love Guru off my chest I can get down to reporting some movie news.
Mike Myers has joined the cast of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Bastards. By Mike Myers I mean the actor and comedian – not the Halloween film character, although that would be cool.
Myers is the latest actor to be recruited by Tarantino following Brad Pitt, Eli Roth (when I mention Roth I use the word “actor” loosely) and B.J. Novak, while Simon Pegg and Nastassja Kinski are still in negotiations to join the WWII flick.
Don’t worry, Myers will NOT be playing “Fat Bastard”. The voice of Shrek will portray General Ed Fenech; a British military commander.
I just have one question:
What is Tarnatino thinking ?
To be honest with you – I have no idea!
Myers’, Pegg’s and Novak’s casting would seem to indicate that the film is going to be a comedy of sorts, but that just doesn’t fit with Tarantino’s other films. While his work does skirt the line between serious and black comedy very successfully, his casting on this picture appears to be all over the place.
I do have faith in Tarantino – even if parts of Death Proof played like a trailer trash, Austin-set version of Sex and The City, but he does have me thrown with Inglorious Bastards.
We can now safely say that anything is now possible with regards to this film.
We will furnish you with more news as we get it.
