Awesome / Christoph Waltz

  • After finishing the script for Inglourious Basterds, Quentin Tarantino worried that the role of Hans Landa would be impossible for any actor to actually play, requiring not only a wide range of emotions but the ability to be believably fluent in four languages. Then Waltz arrived as if through divine provenance as exactly what the role required.
