Pegg Passed On Bastards For Unicorns

So I remember Simon Pegg turning down a chance to appear in Inglourious Bastards. What I didn’t remember was that he did it so he could star in something called The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. – which I at first assumed was some trippy Rin-Tin-Tin‘s long lost unicorn half-brother movie. Thankfully its not – but Pegg is still righfully kicking himself for passing on Bastards.

Some more very cool custom Inglourious Basterds poster art, this time at Juxtapox Magazine. [thanks to Pete for the link]
And its all for charity benefitting the victims of the earthquake in Haiti:

Upper Playground teamed up with Quentin Tarantino and SA Studios to release the “Lost Art of Inglourious Basterds” to benefit the victims of the Haiti Earthquake. On February 18th, 2010 from 6 – 9pm, the world will get to preview and purchase the “Lost Art of Inglourious Basterds” at The Upper Playground Art Gallery in Downtown Los Angeles.

Its a shame that this is an in-person event only. They could have sold a bunch of these unsigned over the net for $5 or $10 each.
Also, be sure to check out Pete’s painting of Quentin that manages to work in references to several QT films.
