In Contention‘s Kris Tapley has dissed the casting of Mike Myers in Quentin Tarantino‘s Inglorious Bastards as British Gen. Ed Fenech, “a military mastermind who takes part in hatching a plot to wipe out Nazi leaders.” As Tarantino’s script is essentially a jape, Myer’s performance will almost certainly be a “bit.” My guess, since Myers has spoken about a spiritual connection he feels with Peter Sellers, is that his Bastards Brit will be some sort of incarnation of Sellers’ Group Captain Lionel Mandrake in Dr. Strangelove. I’ll take bets on this.

Mike MNyers; Pete Sellers in Dr. Strangelove.
