Green Hornet Villain: Christoph Waltz
As you may already know, Michel Gondry's ' Green Hornet' film is well underway, and with the unexpected loss of Nicholas Cage last week, it seemed as though the film had hit yet another bump in the Hollywood road. Fear not Gondry/Rogen fans, we have a villain! It was announced earlier today that Christoph Waltz of 'Inglorious Basterds' fame would take on the role as the primary evil-doer in the upcoming film, according to Deadline Hollywood.
Waltz who is supposedly a shoe in at this year's Oscars, recently won a Cannes film festival award for best actor and by signing onto 'Green Hornet,' he seems to be taking his career in an interesting direction. (I just realized how much of a wet blanket I am when it comes to any news on this movie) What do you guys think? Did you see 'Inglorious Basterds'? Do you think that Waltz is an upgrade from Nicholas Cage?
Oh yeah, he was absolutely incredible in Inglorious Basterds. Calm and friendly towards who ever he was talking to, yet insanely creepy all at the same time because you know in all likely hood where the scenes are heading because you can see his mind at work the whole time, awesome, awesome, awesome performance, the whole movie was great but he definietely stole the show. In my mind he's a huge step up from Cage.
" Thats a BINGO! "Haha, great line in the movie.
I think this is a VERY cool choice for the villain. After I saw Basterds I walked out and told my friends "God, I really hated that fu****"!" and that's rare in a movie, for an actor to so fully become villainous that you truly hate the man. Impressive work. The only other time I felt that, interestingly enough, was with Ralph Fiennes character in Schindler's List. I look forward to how Waltz handles this character. Who is the villain going to be, anyway? Any one from the comics?
Seeing how Inglorious Bastards just came out. This strikes me as some patchwork deal that was thrown together on some red carpet or after party.
I am just amazed that they started filming this movie without even having a solid villain.
They could resurrect the dead corpse of Lawrence Olivier to play the villain, and include 20 minutes worth of topless women jumping on trampolines in this movie and it would still be a turdfest.
Wet blanket, don't worry, Babs, I'm a wet Duvet. This is going to suck and suck cow manure through a straw.
