Brad Pitt may have an excuse to start using his Inglorious Bastards accent again.
The Oscar-nominated actor has joined the cast of Twelve Times A Slave. The film, based on a true story, follows a free black man in the 1850's who was tricked and lured into slavery.
Pitt will star alongside actor's Michael Fassbender and Chiwetel Ejiofor in the Steve McQueen directed
Oscar bait film. Although you probably can't pronounce Chiwetel's name, you'll easily be able to recognize him from films like Four Brothers, American Gangster and Salt.
If Pitt doesn't win an Academy Award this year for Moneyball, it sounds like he already has a good chance of winning one next year!
