Tom Cruise as a Nazi might pique a bit of interest in Valkyrie, but seeing that it’s a Brian Singer film has got me fully on board, and the cast has officially elevated me to excited: Stephen Fry, Bill Nighy, Terence Stamp, Eddie Izzard, Tom Wilkinson, Kenneth Branagh, Kevin McNally, Ian McNeice and more.

There’s also a bunch of German actors, including Christian Berkel from Black Book. Makes you think, if every actor over here gets a go on the Bill, does every German actor eke a living as Nazi soldiers? And which type are they? Square-jawed Prussian types who don’t really like Nazism, weaselly SS-types, or hearty fat chaps?
