Tarantino has found an Inglorious projectionist

There is a character in Inglorious Basterds called Marcel, the projectionist in Shosanna‘s movie theater, one of the major locations of the film. We can now confirm that a French actor that goes with the cool-sounding name (imagine Mr Pink saying this) Jacky Ido has been cast for this role, which I will now tentatively describe as Melanie Laurent‘s character’s side-kick. We’ve also managed to get most of the already known cast confirmed, just to rule out confusion. On our Inglorious Bastards cast & characters page you’ll see those that are 100% seperated from those names and characters where we’re not yet so sure. We’ll bring you more pretty soon. Curious readers can dive into our Forums and will find the very first picture from the set of the film there. Thanks for reading everyone, have a wonderful start into a great weekend.

Update: The great folks at The Playlist also note that French actor Denis Menochet has also been cast, for a role yet unknown.
