What they really wanna do is act

I'm all for film directors making fleeting cameo appearances (Hitchcock, after all, was almost as famous for his onscreen walk-ons as for his films) but it's when they actually try and act that I have my doubts. Variety is reporting that Eli Roth is in talks to play a baseball bat-swinging Nazi hunter in Tarantino's Inglorious Bastards. On the bright side, it'll stop him directing. At least for a while.

Cold! I totally don't mind Roth at all. I don't love his films, but I enjoy them okay, and he personally I find an enormously entertaining interviewee. If Tarantino can tap into that, I can see this working out.

Ok, that was a bit mean about Roth.

Eric. Couldn't find an email on your site. What is it?
