First Look: Brad Pitt In Inglourious Basterds

Empire Magazine brings us a first look at Brad Pitt in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds (yes, correct misspelling). In the film, Pitt plays Lt. Aldo Rain (aka Aldo The Apache), a leader of a group of Jewish-American soldiers known as "the basterds" (hence the title). Accompanied by German actress and undercover agent Bridget Von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger), the squad is on a mission to track down, scalp, and viciously kill Nazis in an attempt to spread fear among the Third Reich. Rain is a Tennessee mountain hillbilly, and has a large scar on his neck (seen in the photo), rumored to be the result of a lynching. The film is currently in production in Germany.
