Mike Myers has joined the cast of Quentin Tarantino’s war epic Inglorious Bastards. The funnyman will star as British Gen. Ed Fenech, a military mastermind who takes part in hatching a plot to wipe out Nazi leaders. Myers joins a cast already brimming with names, including Brad Pitt, Simon Pegg, Nastassja Kinski, David Krumholtz and Eli Roth. The film is set to start shooting very soon, with a release date planned for next summer. Empire magazine has read Tarantino’s script and predictably doused it with praise. They may yet be more big names to join before the giant headed one is done as well. Watch this space... well not this space exactly, but you know what I mean.
