Mike Myers Joins ‘Inglorious Bastards’
  |  @   |  

In one of the more strange casting announcements I’ve heard in a while, Mike Myers has been cast in Quentin Tarantino‘s upcoming Inglorious Bastards in a small role as a British General named Ed French who assists in the plan to take down the Nazis.

Considering all of the comedic names rumored for this movie, like Adam Sandler, Eddie Murphy, and most recently Simon Pegg who’s in talks, and BJ Nowak, who has been cast (along with Brad Pitt, by the way); you would think that this wouldn’t surprise me, but man, Mike Myers in this seems totally made up. Don’t get me wrong though, this adds to the intrigue.

Luckily, Myers is just playing a bit part, because we wouldn’t want anything to get it the way of his writing an Austin Powers 4, now would we?

Now, speaking of Adam Sandler, he was indeed offered the part he’s always been rumored for, but sadly, has had to pass it up due to the movie he’s doing with Judd Apatow. This angers me as someone who’s always been a big fan of Sandler and has shed a tear at what he’s been doing lately. I thought this was going to be a great chance to get into a great project where you’ve never seen him before, probably dropping a couple f-bombs as he used to do so well. It’s ironic that he has to pass it up for another movie I was happy to hear he was attached to, Funny People.

Lastly, for shits and giggles, below is an image of a tower Tarantino was scouting for Bastards. That’s one WWII lookin’ tower, if I do say so myself.
