INGLORIOUS COCHAIRS: Quentin Tarantino has a knack for both A-list and offbeat casting. When the Museum of Modern Art honors the director next month at its fifth annual film benefit, a number of his past and upcoming players have been enlisted to Tarantino-ize the party committee. Jamie Foxx, Harvey Keitel, Diane Kruger and Steve Buscemi were all among the chairs on the list released to WWD on Friday. Longtime Tarantino backers Harvey and Bob Weinstein are also in the fold, as are a slew of more regular MoMA patrons including Sid Bass, Jo Andres, Marie-Josée and Henry R. Kravis, Jo Carole and Ronald S. Lauder, Wendi and Rupert Murdoch and Lizzie and Jon Tisch. Watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre will sponsor the Dec. 3 benefit.
