SILVER LININGS COLUMN-Will Mr. Bond Be Expecting Waltz?
Remember when we talked about Channing Tatum joining 'The Hateful Eight' and wondering what a Tarantino Western would be without his old hand Christoph Waltz? Well it appears the two time, Q.T. Oscar winner will be busy with Daniel Craig instead. Waltz, who turned both 'Inglorious Basterds' and 'Django Unchained' into classics is set to sign on for 'Bond 24'. Now that's a bingo!
Bullseye! I bet Mr. Bond wasn't expecting that!
How do you go about beating a new 'Bourne', (the spy franchise that briefly took over Bond) now that Matt Damon is back as Jason? By hiring the ultimate nice guy/bad guy Waltz who surely will be playing the next James Bond villain. One who will be even better than 'No Country For Old Men's' Javier Bardem camping it up in 'Skyfall' and possibly as legendary as Jaws or 'Goldfinger'. As Bond takes a tango with 'Django's' Waltz, do we expect him to talk? No we expect Bond fans to die with excitement for this one.
Christoph's cunning charisma will make this next 007 a sure fire hit, knocking the living daylights out of the competition. Between 'Bourne' and 'Mission Impossible', Jeremy Renner certainly has his work cut out for him. You can currently catch the ever likable Waltz as a bad guy in the hilarious 'Horrible Bosses 2' sequel. But after all the fun and games soon this Western and World War II hunter will be given a license to kill. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
