Well, just when we thought casting was over and that the movie has begun, Quentin Tarantino has decided to add two more stars to his already over populated film. The first star is a Tarantino veteran. I mean, what would a Tarantino film be without Sam L. Jackson? That’s right Jackson along will be joining the Inglourious Basterds gang.
Allegedly Jackson wanted to role so much that he “called up Tarantino himself when he heard he wasn’t up for any casting spots.” And it worked! He’s in the film as the narrator. He apparently will pop up at random times throughout the movie to “add some context and background info.”
Then of course there is the lovely Maggie Cheung who will be playing a French matron named Madam Mimieux. Luckily for her she fluent French, so the role was quite easy for her to adjust to. Her character “takes in the protagonist Shosanna (Melanie Laurent) when she is homeless and being sought by the Nazis. Wait, Cheung is Chinese, right, born in Hong Kong?”
