In Brad Pitt's upcoming World War II movie, he plays a vengeance-seeking Nazi hunter – and he looks the part.

The first portrait of Pitt’s character, Lt. Aldo Raine, in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds (yes, the misspelling is intentional), was released Monday. Clad in tough-looking fighter gear, Pitt portrays the leader of the "Basterds," a group of Jewish-American soldiers who scalp and brutally kill Nazis.

Pitt’s character is described on as not "your Warner Brothers 1950's WW2 hero … this is a hillbilly straight from the mountains of Tennessee."

Pitt, Angelina Jolie and their six children recently moved to a Berlin villa while he works on the controversial film.
