The actors real name is Til Schweiger and his characters name is Sgt. Stiglitz, so it’s kind of easy to see how one might assume he’s a Nazi, especially when you look at him (oh how stereotypes always work!). But no! He’s not a Nazi, he’s a grade-A psychopath with a gun who was recruited by the Basterds to kill Nazis.
Check out his full poster below…
His full name actually Sgt. Hugo Stiglitz (after a famous Mexican actor) and he’s described as “strange and solitary.” He can easily get access to Nazi camps because, well hell, he looks like a Nazi! I think it’s safe to say that this guys is a f-ing crazy and is going to get into a whole lot of trouble.
Inglourious Basterds will be coming to theaters August 21 and will be premiering at Cannes this month.
