The Weinstein Company today announced that Quentin Tarantino's WWII epic Inglorious Bastards has begun principal photography, and the accompanying press release was notable for two reasons. First, the official announcement spells the title as "INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS," aping the misspelling on the title page of the widely-leaked (and poorly spelled) script; does this mean that the film will goose-step into theaters bearing the same appellation? Still, there was one other tidbit tucked into the end of the film's cast roundup that we're shocked to find wasn't the subject of its very own, trumpet-blaring announcement:The 26th and final name listed in the cast? None other than Dancing with the Stars comeback queen Cloris Leachman, who will hopefully revive the German accent that has served her so well in both Young Frankenstein and Broken Lizard's Beerfest. Sure, sure, we're also excited that Goodbye Lenin's Daniel Brühl has been confirmed (he's our bet to succeed Gael Garcia Bernal as the next hot foreign import) and that Mélanie Laurent has been announced as female lead Shoshanna, but let's face it: all other news pales in comparison to the Cloris. Quentin, we eagerly look forward to her paso doble/Batusi dance scene — don't let us down!
