I may be wide of the mark here but was it not Quentin Tarantino in Inglorious Basterds?

That came to mind, but I haven't seen the film and IMDB doesn't have Tarantino actually playing a role in the movie as far as I can see.
Yeah I checked IMDB too - after I'd posted. I'll think about it.
Tarantino's role is shown here -

Thanks Lie-in King - that must be it - though "German soldier" barely fits the description of "member of the Third Reich" - I was in the process of going through all the leading Nazis I could think of as Characters on IMDB.

Second thoughts - I have found Erich von Stroheim described as an 'enfant terrible' and 'American director' (although he was born in Austria) in several places:

As an actor, he played Field Marshal Erwin Rommel in Five Graves to Cairo (1943)

Otto Preminger (also described as 'enfant terrible') played German officers, but I think I'll go with Stroheim.
Well played crucifernz, that's a much better answer :-)

Glad you agree Lie-In King - let's hope we're right!
Best of luck! :-)
