Berlin-born Nastassja Kinski ("Tess," "Cat People," "Inland Empire") is in talks to play the key role of German movie star Bridget Von Hammersmark in Quentin Tarantino's World War II epic "Inglorious Bastards."
Many had speculated that the role, which requires the speaking of much German, might go to Uma Thurman.
David Krumholtz ("Serenity," "Numb3rs") is in talks to play a member of Aldo "The Apache" Raine's Jewish-American Nazi-killing squad. I'd guess the American Hirschberg.
Simon Pegg ("Hot Fuzz," "Mission: Impossible III") is up for Lt. Archie Hicox, the British officer who aids Raine's efforts in Nazi-occupied Europe. The Brit role was long earmarked for Tarantino regular Tim Roth, but Roth is currently busy with the Fox Network series "Lie To Me."
And, oh yeah, as long rumored, Brad Pitt is aboard the project as Raine. He joins Eli Roth ("Grindhouse"), who assays Donnie "The Bear Jew" Donowitz.
B.J. Novak ("The Office") is in talks to another Jewish-American soldier, Private Utivich.
Yet uncast is the bloodthirsty European Jew Hugo Stiglitz, the fabulous French Jewess Shoshanna Dreyfus, and Nazi colonel Hans Landa, "The Jew Hunter."
