Brad Pitt is an Inglorious Bastard

Brad Pitt met with director Quentin Tarantino in France on Tuesday to secure Pitt to play the key role of Aldo Raine in Inglorious Bastards, reports Variety.

Tarantino also plans to meet Leonardo DiCaprio on Thursday to play another lead role, Hans Landa.

Inglorious Bastards will shoot this fall in Germany and also in France, where Brad, partner Angelina Jolie, and their six kids have been residing.

    um, is it possible for… wrinkles to go away ‘without’ help of a doctor?
    —————
    Not completely, but there are a number of products which fill in wrinkles temporarily so that they virtually look like they ‘disappear’. I’m not a doctor, but I play one on the internet :-).

    a B-a-s-t-a-r-d is a child born to parents who are not married or not married to each other. Although most people out of politically correctness are shy about using it, it still is a word with that stated meaning. The word itself is not derogatory, there are ignorant people who use it as such. People ‘s perception of words and words themselves sometimes change over time. Bastard can also refer to an unpleasant person. :-).

    #100: Oh, please…the youth was a Muslim…the doctor and the mayor, Jews…they were upset that Angie gave birth there and was treated nicely while their youth died from his wounds. Nobody’s fault but the knife wielder. Why blame a movie star for a tragedy she knew nothing about. People were just trying to pin something on anybody…what better target than somebody famous. I don’t even think that Angie’s obstetrician had anything to do with the emergency room. They should sue the doctor that treated him there if they have a grievance.

  • Say what

    Fake famous, most of Brad Pitt movies that made a lot are because of the rest of the cast. HE CANNOT CARRY A movie on his!

    Look @ Will smiths numbers and he has made less movies and has been acting for a shorter amount of time than Brad pitt. Plus will smith is usually the main guy carrying the movie.

    242……BRAD PITT HAS ALWAYS been a box office draw….and when you’ve maintained the interest of the public for almost 20 years….come back and open your trap then D*U*M*B*A*S*S!!!!…

    ….Every major star is PAIRED UP with other actors on screen….but a major test of whether you can hold the publics interest is whether they are interested in your critical sucess, box office success, AND seem to be interested in your personal life no matter WHO you are dating….THAT’S our BP!!!….he increases the status of whomever he pairs up with professionally AND personally…..look at how Casey Affleck was nominated for awards after the JESSIE JAMES movie….and over the years ALL of the women Brad has dated were suddenly hounded by the press after dating or being seen with him…

    ———————————————————————————————–

    BRAVO!! I agree! Well said!

    Brad is a terrific actor, I love watching his movies.

  • yeah right

    Say what @ 07/16/2008 at 7:59 pm

    That is because Will Smith’s movies are about Superhero and Alien. This kind of movie is always BO hit no matter who is in it.

  • Ironic

    Jaye,

    Isn’t it strange that legally children are still considered “B-A-S-T-A-R-D-S” if born out of wedlock considering how much the world has changed? Or should I say, society has changed. Anyway, I have one granddaughter and she legally is considered a “B” child. Mom and dad are together just not married, plans are that they will marry, someday….But, I despise the term and think about how legally she is considered this. I also hadn’t thought of the fact, that it’s really not a derrogatory term, it’s just how it’s used.

    Anyway….that’s why I shouldn’t post messages, I try to post short ones, they don’t come out right. I post long ones and they don’t make much sense either.

    Thanks for the response!

    Go Leo! I read the script and the role is very challening. And I mean VERY challenging. He’s called the Jew Hunter! Scary.

    I know this subject will be swarmed with annoying Brangelina fans now, but are there any other Leo fans?

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Helena,

    I really liked Leo DiCaprio in Departed. That ending took me by surprise.

    Where did you find the script for this upcoming film? I would be interested in reading it.

    bdj @ 07/16/2008 at 5:13 pm Last month, the Barneses were watching television in their Smithfield home when the phone rang. Baxter looked at the caller ID to see who it was as his wife answered the phone. He stood there in shock while his wife talked to Brad Pitt.

    So Brad’s name came up on Caller ID. I wonder if his phone number also showed. I’m debating if I would try calling the number if I had it. Anyway Brad and Make It Right are doing a good thing. Thanks for posting the article.

    I read that Mario Testino is in Paris working with Reece W. Wouldn’t it be great if he went to see Angelina and took some pics of the family. The ones he did of Brad, Angelina, Maddox and Zahara were great.

  • yeah right

    Brad was offered Spider Man 1, Matrix 1 and Bourne1, he turned them down. He is just not into this kind of movies.

  • pie

    i will definitely watch that. :)

  • Brad said

    “My decision to take on a film is not calculated in terms of its potential success. It’s all a crap shoot to me,” he says. “I really don’t bet on the horses. I just go with the story that speaks to me, that I feel strongly about and, more importantly, with the people I’m surrounded by. I don’t even care about aiming for a bigger audience. I come from the belief that all good films find a time and place, whether it’s on the opening weekend or sometime later.”

    True. He was offered a role in Apollo 13 but rather than take a sure fire money maker he decided to do a movie called Seven.

    Dicraprio @ 07/16/2008 at 8:23 pm

    LOL Because of Titanic. Guess what Kate Winslet has good numbers too based on that one movie.

  • Brad Fan

    Leo & Brad! woo hoo what a great pair to headline a film. I love it. I don’t really love Quentin Tarantino though and his movies. But these two are so beyond box office is just ridiculous. I really love where Leo’s head is at in terms of making movies. He says no to obvious blockbusters like that “awful” (his words) Titanic and does more niche films. Good for him. Brad has been moving in that direction for a while. He alternates between box office junk food and niche art house movies.

    Thanks JJ.

    You’re doing fine posting. My rule of thumb if I’m responding is to be on point. Once I write what I want to, I read it and then re-read it. I don’t always catch the typos ( it’s in my blood lol), but I do manage to say what I want.

    Hell to the NO! I’m not sleeping with oil in my hair and a plastic bag on my head.

  • PT Links and #s.

    I’m so glad that this PT showed us the link that all of his films did way better outside of America than IN America.

    Though Grindhouse did poorly OUTSIDE of America too. It did better IN America but it cost $65 million to make and brought back unler $9 million (I think).

    SUPERFLOP.

    Tarantino has lost his touch. His movie in Grindhouse was absolutely AWFUL.

    And I suspect that if they do get some foreign money into this film that Brad will only get $5 million for it, because he can’t pull people in since TROY, and that flopped here. Babel flopped here.

    They did better oversease, but I don’t think Tarantino is the golden boy anymore, neither is Leo, nor Pitt. These are like 3 old men who used to be the “it” people making a MOVIE together to try and get the “old magic” again.

    But it won’t work.

    There are so many other BETTER directors around!

    The game isn’t played like it used to be, not even from 2 years ago when Pitt released Babel.

    LOL so where are the #s for Ass of JJ???

  • the real tita

    #263: Most of the Will Smith movies were courtesy of CGI. Name the movies he made without them and then count the revenue. He became famous for Independence Day and Men in Black. After that, it was all about the robots and aliens…all about the running. All he’s ever done is run…chase or be chased. Did he make BO when he made that remake of Wild Wild West or that movie with him as a homeless man with his son?

    Please…..he may not have had some big names with him but he sure had big computer images that the public lapped up.

  • piper, with a low

    Re: Leo and Brad working together…

    Oh, okay. I can’t say for sure if I like Leo or not; I’ve only seen Titanic and The Aviator.

    But I’m not too crazy about QT’s timing. And while I dig QT’s movies, I can’t stand him as an interview subject. His arrogance overshadows his enthusiasm.

    Slightly OT…

  • Dicraprio

    the mexican really really spoke to him. big star Julia money maker roberts had nothing to do with it. didn’t that movie bomb anyway?

  • Nice

    Uh Leo is a wonderful actor who started out as a child actor. He was great from go. Leo is not overrated. What people are confusing as over rated are the fangirls frenzy (like Zac Efron now) and the media’s high school like obsession during the Titanic era. It made people not concentrate on Leo’s prior works.

    I hope Brad does less commercial movies cuz he doen’t need to prove anything. Leave that pressure to the up and comers who don’t have a track record yet. Good luck with that.

    Will Smith set out in Hollywood to do only certain kinds of movies. It’s no secret. Will Smith has branded himself as the superhero/special effects actor. He needs to do less of that now and more of The Pursuit of Happyness.

    Tom Cruise let the outside interfere with his movie persona. There was bad pr representation and he is being played by a cult. He will. eventually find his way back but not for a while.

    George Clooney is a favorite on Just jared. LOL. The media and fanboys are in love with his perceived persona which is why he is percieved as an overrated actor, awards aside. This only shows how hungry and thirsty the public is for the old fashioned movie star quality that Clooney can at times manifest. Serth Rogan, Mike Myers, and Vince Vaughn are not what comes to mind when you hear the words movie idol no matter now much money they make or their movies make. So the search still continues for that suave traditional matinee idol. Look for a reality show coming soon for this search. LOL

    #295 Why do you call someone a liar based on their personal conviction? Sometimes some remarks are over the top and unnecessary. Brad Pitt and Angelina are more than movie stars, they have so many other things going on in their lives. Talking about movies is about 1/10th of their lives. He’s paricipating in the architectural design of a big hote etc, etc. Can we move on to another topic? It is getting rather boring with the fake Dicaprio fans.
