BRAD PITT IS A BASTERD
Brad Pitt plays the role of Lt. Aldo Raine aka “Aldo the Apache”: he is an illiterate hillbilly from the mountains of Tennessee, who puts together a team of eight Jewish-American soldiers. He bears a rope burn on his neck, which will never be mentioned in the film but is obvious on this poster (the script hints that he might have survived a lynching).
The character has been described as “a voluble, freewheeling outlaw” similar to Jules Winnfield from Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction.
The movie Inglourious Basterds will premiere at the 2009 Cannes Film festival this month.
