Well, the casting has been anything but expected when it comes to Quentin Tarantino’s next outing Inglorious Bastards and it doesn’t look like that is going to change as Mike Myers has joined the cast. Yup, the Mike Myers that starred in Austin Powers 1, 2 and 3 and the same man that went on to make The Love Guru. Even though Tarantino.info reports he will have a “SMALL role” in the film it doesn’t get me too excited.
If Tarantino is casting Myers for a tongue-in-cheek bit cameo it seems it would be more productive to cast an unknown so as not to distract from the humor. I don’t know, I can’t judge and it seems I really need to read this script.
Myers joins the cast headlined by Brad Pitt and also starring Eli Roth, B.J. Novak, Nastassja Kinski, Simon Pegg and David Krumholtz.
