Last week, rumor was that Brad Pitt would be taking a lead role in Quentin Tarantino's latest, Inglorious Bastards. Now, another A-list name can be added to the hypothetical list you're keeping: Growing Pains star Leonardo DiCaprio! From Variety:

After the director met Brad Pitt in France on Tuesday, those studios are already salivating over the expectation that Tarantino will land Pitt to play the key role of Aldo Raine. They'll be even keener if Tarantino's plan to meet Leonardo DiCaprio for another lead role goes well Thursday. Tarantino wants DiCaprio to play the role of Hans Landa.

I can't decide if this is really strong casting or casting entirely from a 1996 issue of Tiger Beat. The deciding factor will be if Tarantino tries to scrape together a posthumous performance from Jonathan Brandis.
