Pegg Out, Levine In Bastards

Simon Pegg has revealed on his MySpace page that he sadly won’t be appearing in Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglorious Bastards”.

Pegg says “Much to our mutual disappointment, I won’t be appearing in QT’s forthcoming Inglorious Bastards due to insurmountable scheduling difficulties. We really tried to make it work but in the end, it just was not possible without severe ramifications elsewhere,” Pegg wrote on his blog. “I’m trying to remain upbeat, as Tom Selleck said ‘Who the hell is Indiana Jones anyway?.”

One person who does look to have come onboard though according to AICN is Samm Levine, the baby-faced comedy actor has appeared in countless TV series over the years including “Freaks and Geeks,” “Ed,” “Undeclared,” “That 70’s Show,” “Veronica Mars” and “Family Guy” along with films like “Club Dread,” “Sydney White” and “Pulse”.

His role is unspecified, though there’s guesses he will replace “Numbers” star David Krumholtz who will not be involved as earlier reported.

The Guardian meanwhile reports that German actors Natassja Kinski (“Cat People,” “Terminal Velocity”), Daniel Brühl (“The Bourne Ultimatum,” “”) and Til Schweiger (“Driven,” “King Arthur”) have met with Tarantino about roles.
