Venkman here and this bit of casting news almost confuses me more than Eli Roth getting cast in 'Inglorious Bastards'. Quentin Tarantino has recruited comedian Mike Myers for his new WWII movie. I am not against it at all I just didn't ever expect mike Myers to join in on a Quentin Tarantino film. Here is what the trades are saying:
Myers will play British Gen. Ed Fenech, a military mastermind who takes part in hatching a plot to wipe out Nazi leaders.
Brad Pitt recently committed to star in the film, along with Eli Roth, and Tarantino is also courting Simon Pegg, Nastassja Kinski, David Krumholtz and B.J. Novak.
Pretty strange. I am still along for the ride on this movie though. Ya gotta love how Tarantino's casting decisions are not what anyone would expect.
