Christoph Waltz in Inglourious Basterds

Christoph Waltz made his acting debut in his home country of Austria, where he primarily worked in theater. It wasn’t until his role in Inglorious Bastards that American film opened up for the talented actor. Since then, Waltz has appeared in many popular films. He is perhaps best known for his roles in two of director Quentin Tarantino’s films: Django Unchained and Inglorious Bastards. In most of his roles, Waltz is an extreme killer or leader, making him a deadly character character in the film. It seems this type of character is a favorite of Waltz as he has also played a villain within the James Bond movie franchise and in the 2011 film, Water for Elephants. While his character in Django Unchained

is more mellowed, he is still a bounty hunter.

In his next role, Waltz looks to add biopic to his filmography, as he is set to star as the titular character in Billy Wilder and Me. Variety reports on the official announcement of the actor’s attachment to the film, which won’t start production until 2023. Until then, here is a handful of his best movies, ranked.

Water for Elephants stars a younger Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson, and Waltz among its main cast. The film is based on a novel by Sara Gruen and follows a former veterinary student who takes a job in a traveling circus where he falls in love with the ringmaster’s wife. The ringmaster is none other than Waltz, and true to his villainous character theme, the ringmaster is possessive towards his wife.

Between a doomed and in-debt circus and a newly acquired elephant, Jacob (Pattinson) has to help restore the circus to its former glory all the while keeping his affair secret from the bad-tempered ringmaster. The film is set in the 1930s which helps add to its Old Hollywood theme. While the main story is a love story, it always helps when the antagonist’s role is performed as well as Waltz did as the ringmaster.

Alita: Battle Angel is a sci-fi action adventure film about revived, deactivated cyborg Alita. In this film, Waltz plays Dr. Ido, who found and restored Alita when he was out searching for cyborg parts. Dr. Ido thinks that Alita is the one who can break the cycle of destruction left behind by the Tiphares. When Alita learns that Dr. Ido is also a warrior, she decides to become one herself as a way to learn more about who she is and where she came from.

The 2019 film was highly rated, and still is a few years later, though a sequel has yet to be announced. The film has resurfaced in the last few months as Robert Rodriguez, Rosa Salazar, and Waltz have all expressed high interest in a sequel, as outlined by CinemaBlend. While nothing has stemmed yet, fans can continue to hope.
