    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx@bawnian-dexeus He is the narrator explaining Hugo Stiglitz. I thought his voice was so recognizable that it took me out of the film. clearly, you disagree. There is a narrator late in the script for Django. I just hope he's not the narrator.

    i kinda assumed he was attached for a while now. There was news about him. The question is, will he be acting or will it be that crappy, unnecessary, and distracting "cameo" in Inglorious Basterds?
