Pitt Suggested Nazi From Basterds As Jolie's Salt Husband

Befriending BRAD PITT on the set of hit film INGLORIOUS BASTERDS paid off for German actor AUGUST DIEHL - the movie star suggested he should play his partner ANGELINA JOLIE's husband in her new thriller SALT.
Diehl played a Nazi in Inglorious Basterds and Pitt took a liking to the European and championed him to play Jolie's partner when director Phillip Noyce was casting the role.
Noyce tells NBC's PopCornBiz blog, "Brad had said what a strong actor he was and we were looking for someone with no baggage. We wanted a fresh face - to keep the audience off guard.
"He was quite ruthless in Basterds... He’s just a great actor."
