If you had trouble seducing potential lovers on Valentine’s Day, fear not. Bringing his sexy Austrian accent into the mix, Christoph Waltz has the tips and tricks to help you charm THE ONE.
Seeing Waltz show off his funny side just makes me so excited for his SNL hosting gig TONIGHT. That being said, the bottom video will FOREVER and always be my favourite sketch he has ever done. Explaining one of the roles that has most influenced him, he goes on to “pleasure” some really random inanimate objects (well, except until the end…).
But if you haven’t seen the original yet, please do right here.
Kate Winslet and Jodie foster have recently signed on to appear in Roman Polanski’s new film, God of Carnage, an adaptation of Yasmina Reza’s Tony-winnin. The film chronicles the story of two sets of parents who meet after their sons are involved in a schoolyard fight. The meeting is goes horrendously as the parents end up criticizing each other’s parenting skills which leads them into exposing their own marital problems. Matt Dillon (There’s Something About Mary) and Christoph Waltz (Inglorious Basterds) have also signed on to play the character’s prospective husbands.
Evidently, Polanski hasn’t let his former allegations of unlawful sexual conduct stop him from winning the Academy Award for The Pianist, and consistently directing revered films. However, Polanski is still unable to set foot in the United States so he has to take the filming elsewhere. God of Carnage, which is set in in Brooklyn will have to be shot in Paris, France.
With a strong Academy Award Winning Cast (Foster, Winslet, Waltz), the film is bound to gain worthy attention and possibly go on to the Oscars. It is an early prediction, but Polanski constantly proves his mastery as a filmmaker from Rosemary’s Baby in 1968 to this year’s Ghost Writer, both of which were met with critical acclaim.
Shooting for God of Carnage begins in February.
It only seemed like a matter of time before World War Two was “Tarantino-ized.” After all, it’s the perfect setting for the “Pulp Fiction” director’s self-proclaimed poetry and mind-boggling gore.
Set in the first year of Germany’s occupation of France, “Inglourious Basterds” – a film that’s loosely based on the 1978 Italian war flick “The Inglorious Bastards” – kicks off with Nazi Colonel Hans Landa (played by German actor Christoph Waltz) who’s on the lookout for Jews (he’s literally referred to as the “Jew Hunter”). One of Landa’s searches in the outskirts of France leads him to a Jewish French girl, Shoshana Dreyfus (played by the beautiful Melanie Laurent) – whose family is killed by Landa and his crew.
Simultaneously (but in a different part of Europe) Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) organizes a group of Jewish American soldiers to perform swift acts of retribution. And by retribution, he means Tarantino-style revenge (which translates to gore X 150).
