Exclusive: Eli Roth is a Basterd!

Wait, when you saw the Brad Pitt is a Basterd teaser poster this weekend you surely said to yourself “hey it’s called Basterds, not Basterd….”, and you were right, Inglourious Basterds is only three weeks away from being premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in all it’s epic glory, so it’s time to get to know more of those Basterds, right? Well here we go, for your (continued) exclusive viewing pleasure….. ELI ROTH IS A BASTERD (click the poster to enlarge or preferrably click here for our poster page). Eli Roth, to bring you up to speed in case you haven’t following as closely as some of our ultra-geeky followers on Twitter or the community here at the QTA, is playing a character the Nazis will refer to as The Bear Jew. A baseball-bat-swinging Boston-ite with an almost Mr Blonde-esque psychopatic twist to his personality. But Eli Roth is also the director of Stolz der Nation (click to find out more!), for all you trivia lovers. Stay tuned for more!
