The Curious Case of Inglorious Bastards

Early returns on the casting of Quentin Tarantino's upcoming WWII film are, needless to say, eyebrow-raising. At last check (and this is after, apparently, Simon Pegg, or "Shaun of the Dead" himself, and Nastassja Kinski dropped out) this is what we're seeing:

-Brad Pitt
-Mike Myers (Perhaps looking for a Travolta-esque comeback in the wake of "The Love Guru"?)
-B.J. Novak (You might know him as Ryan the temp from NBC's "The Office".)
-Diane Kruger (The striking German actress who no doubt will bring to mind the George Costanza line, "She's kind of a cute Nazi".)

Q.T. has never disappointed before in his ability to concoct crazed casting potions but, nevertheless, I'm getting a little freaked out.
