!!Listed Trivia:

* ActorAllusion:
** This isn't the first movie where Creator/BradPitt [[Film/FightClub fights in a basement]].
** Creator/EliRoth gets to do some of the more gruesome killings in the film. Coincidence? And this isn't the first time he's played a "bear"--in [[Film/{{Grindhouse}} Death Proof]], his character was named "Dov," which means "bear" in Hebrew.
** Mike Myers doing a character with a faux-English accent who's involved with international espionage? [[Film/AustinPowers Yeah, baby.]]
* TheCameo: Italian Director [[Creator/EnzoGCastellari Enzo G. Castellari]] - who directed the original ''The Inglorious Bastards'' - [[http://inglouriousbasterds.wikia.com/wiki/Obergruppenf%C3%BChrer_(Enzo_G._Castellari) appears]] as a Nazi Obergruppenführer in the Premiere scene.
* TheDanza: Omar Doom as Pfc. Omar Ulmer.
* DeletedScene: Cloris Leachman and MaggieCheung ended up being cut from the film.
* EnforcedMethodActing: Quentin Tarantino decided that he wanted [[spoiler: Bridget Von Hammersmark's]] death scene to be very realistic [[spoiler: so Tarantino put on a Nazi uniform, took Christoph Waltz's place, and choked Diane Kruger until she was unconscious.]]
* FakeBrit: MichaelFassbender who plays Lt. Archie Hicox, the QuintessentialBritishGentleman, lives in London but is in fact half-Irish, half-German. Mike Myers (Canadian) plays another quintessential Brit, General Fenech. And finally, Rod Taylor, who plays Prime Minister Winston Churchill, is Australian. Tarantino talked Rod Taylor out of retirement to play Churchill, even though Taylor suggested Albert Finney (who had played Churchill to great acclaim in The Gathering Storm (2002)).
* FakeNationality: Christian Berkel, who plays a French bartender, is actually German.
* FatalMethodActing: A near miss. During the climactic scene, the fire raging through the cinema was completely real. Unfortunately, it began to get out of hand, and the two actors in the scene were only wearing a jelly to protect their skin; the rest of the crew had fire suits. Ten seconds after Quentin Tarantino called 'cut' and everyone rushed off, the platform the actors had been standing on collapsed. The heat was so intense (2000 degrees fahrenheit) one of them passed out afterwards.
* HeyItsThatGuy: So many to pick from!
** Hey, it's [[TheOffice Ryan the temp]] killing Nazis...
** Alongside [[FreaksAndGeeks Neal Schweiber]]!
** The scene with the English general. Wait, why is {{Austin Powers}} talking?
** Rod Taylor is WinstonChurchill.
** [[OceansEleven Rusty Ryan]] has a [[strike: crap]] [[RealityIsUnrealistic surprisingly accurate]] Appalachian accent.
** Hey, it's the chick from ''NationalTreasure''! Or, you could say [[Film/{{Troy}} Achilles and Helen]] are back together at a movie premiere!
** The Bear Jew...is the king of {{gorn}} [[Creator/EliRoth himself]]!
** When did [[Film/GoodbyeLenin Alexander Kerner]] switch from communism to Nazism?
** Wait a second- Inspector? Where have you left Rex?!
** [[Film/KillBill Reverend Harmony]] leads the American soldiers in ''[[ShowWithinAShow Stolz der Nation]]''.
** Not something a non-German would care about, but the rather small soldier in the tavern? Volker Michalowski, kind of famous [[GermanHumor German comedian]] with a (stealth) cameo.
** Another cameo only interesting for Germans is the drummer of Die Ärzte as an usher.
** Hey it's suicidal Paul and Gunther from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love_in_Thoughts 'Love In Thoughts']]. As Nazis. But is Gunther still gay?
** [[TraumschiffSurprise Rock Fertig-Aus]] went back in time in order to kill some Nazis.
** Good to see that [[Series/{{Hex}} Azazeal]] is still as suave as ever.
** It would appear that a certain [[Film/{{Valkyrie}} renegade-Nazi-explosive-expert]] was relegated to the profession of bartending... or maybe he's [[Film/{{Downfall}} Prof. Dr. Ernst-Günter Schenck]] in a different timeline...
** It should come as no surprise that [[Film/{{X-Men}} Magneto]] likes drinking scotch and killing Nazis.
*** Ludger Pistor and Wilfried Hochholdinger - the pig farmer and the tailor from [[Film/XMenFirstClass X-Men: First Class]] have small roles here as well.
* HeyItsThatVoice: The Narrator is Creator/SamuelLJackson and the Basterds' Commanding Officer is Creator/HarveyKeitel. Both are Tarantino regulars. In the Japanese dub we have [[Anime/CowboyBebop Spike Spiegel]] as Aldo, Rangiku Matsumoto from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' as Shosanna and Hidan from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' as Hicox.
* PlayingAgainstType: Sam Levine is better known for his nerdy NiceGuy roles in series like ''Series/FreaksAndGeeks'' and ''Series/{{Undeclared}}''
* PromotedFanboy: Mike Myers was reportedly a Tarantino fan, which got him his cameo in Chapter 4 "Operation Kino".
* SimilarlyNamedWorks: The "Inglourious Basterds" misspelling was likely to avoid a lawsuit by the copyright holders of the 1978 film "The Inglorious Bast'''a'''rds", which was also a World War II film. Though it might also be a reflection on Raine's illiteracy.
* StarMakingRole: This is the film that introduced Creator/ChristophWaltz to American audiences.
* ThrowItIn: The giant swastika falling down in the final scene is real, it was a mistake that happened ''on the set''.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Creator/AdamSandler, Creator/SimonPegg and Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio were considered for the respective parts of Donny Donowitz, Archie Hicox and Hans Landa. The role of Hicox was originally written with Tarantino favorite Creator/TimRoth in mind.
** Also, at one point Music/EnnioMorricone was onboard to compose the score but backed out due to his belief that he would be unable to work efficiently in the amount of time given.
** In the screenplay of ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'', the first part of the film set in Paris was intended to have been filmed in black and white, using entirely natural lighting, in reference to the FrenchNewWave. This was probably cut by ExecutiveMeddling, on the grounds that most of the audience wouldn't get the reference, and came here to see an ''action movie'', get back to the killin' already!

!!Other Trivia:

* BradPitt also played a character that collected German scalps in the 1994 film ''Film/LegendsOfTheFall''.
