As previously speculated, Brad Pitt has been officially confirmed as the lead in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Bastards. Pitt will play Lieutenant Aldo Raine, head of the Jewish resistance.
Pitt’s character is a voluble, freewheeling outlaw in the manner of Samuel L. Jackson’s Jules Winnfield in "Pulp Fiction," prone to saying things like "we’re gonna be doing one thing, and one thing only, and that’s killing Nazis," according to those familiar with the script. [THR]
You can read big chunk of Pitt’s dialogue from the script here. Jesus, I just re-read that monologue and I gotta say: good luck you handsome, hot-wife-having bastard. Because that coke-fueled mess of a script is gonna be a five-hour movie, even if you don’t assume all those commas are meant as dramatic pauses.
