The Green Hornet Gets an Inglourious Basterd of a Villain
Posted 09.14.09 by reelz
Christoph Waltz, the evil Nazi from Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, is getting another villainous role — in The Green Hornet, according to Nikki Finke's Deadline Hollywood blog.
Waltz's slimy, yet playful, performance in Basterds is likely what brought the 52-year-old into the limelight, and and it's perfect for director Michel Gondry's action-comedy aesthetic.
Recent reporting had pegged actor Nicolas Cage as the lead villain for the movie, only described as a "gangster villain." But it seems this latest news has put him out of the film for good.
