Brad Pitt Gets in Gear for Tarantino War Movie
New picture gives first glimpse of the star in latest movie role
In Brad Pitt‘s upcoming World War II movie, he plays a vengeance-seeking Nazi hunter – and he looks the part.
The first portrait of Pitt s character, Lt. Aldo Raine, in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds (yes, the misspelling is intentional), was released Monday. Clad in tough-looking fighter gear, Pitt portrays the leader of the “Basterds,” a group of Jewish-American soldiers who scalp and brutally kill Nazis.
Pitt s character is described on Tarantino.info as not “your Warner Brothers 1950’s WW2 hero this is a hillbilly straight from the mountains of Tennessee.”
