Cloris Leachman to Costar with Brad Pitt in Tarantino Flick
Cloris Leachman, Brad Pitt
After "mastering" the salsa on Dancing with the Stars, we ask: Is there anything Cloris Leachman can't do?
Apparently not. She'll next appear in a cameo role in Inglourious Basterds (not a typo), Quentin Tarantino's next film, alongside Brad Pitt, Mike Myers and Hostel director Eli Roth. Basterds tells the story of American Lt. Aldo Raine (Pitt), who assembles a group of Jewish soldiers to kill Nazis during World War II. Leachman will play Mrs. Himmelstein, an elderly Jewish woman who inspires Roth's character to seek vengeance.
Shooting is already underway in France and Germany. Leachman will join the production once her Dancing obligations are complete, which should be… any minute now. Basterds is scheduled to debut at the Cannes Film Festival in May of next year.
