First look at Aldo Raine

Let me introduce you to the principal Basterd, the head honcho Basterd, most Inglourious of all Basterds, Lt. Aldo Raine (insert applause here). We’ve got a first look at Brad Pitt in full resistance fighter gear for you. Remember, this ain’t your Warner Brothers 1950s WW2 hero, this is a hillbilly straight from the mountains of Tennessee, a man with a scar around his neck that “will never once be mentioned,” this is Brad Pitt in one hundred percent Quentin Tarantino Nazi-scalping business. If you drooled over those few pictures of the farmhouse set we ran last week that almost killed our server, get ready to see the site slow down in a few hours. Here’s a little quote from the much quoted Aldo Raine opening speech: “… I sure as hell, didnt come down from the goddamn Smoky Mountains, cross five thousand miles of water, fight my way through half Sicily, and then jump out of a fuckin air-o-plane, to teach the Nazi’s lessons in humanity.” So click on Brad Pitt here to the right…. and stay tuned for more inglorious coverage of Inglourious Basterds
