Eli Roth's performance in "Inglourious Basterds" may not have been the best of the bunch, but his character -- Donny Donowitz, aka "The Bear Jew" -- is certainly the most unforgettable. He's the strong, silent type mostly, but with wide swaths of crazy thrown in to keep the Nazis on their toes. Sure, all of the Basterds are crazy. But Donowitz's is a special blend; even with no more than 10 or 20 lines of dialogue, he distinguishes himself as one of the movie's most unforgettable characters.
As such, you can expect to see a lot of Bear Jews walking around next Saturday, on Halloween. It's not a terribly difficult costume to prepare for and it comes with the added bonus of giving you an excuse to carry a baseball bat around for the night. Why that's a good thing is anyone's guess. Just please make sure not to hit people with said bat. The toughest part of a Bear Jew costume is the accessorizing. Luckily, Roth has his Twitter followers -- among them, the MTV Twitter-Wood feed -- covered. Today's Daily TwitPic serves up a guide to giving your Bear Jew costume that authentic feel.
