Interview with 'SPECTRE' star Christoph Waltz in GQ Magazine. Here are some quotes from the interview:


Note: I wouldn't consider anything here a spoiler as it's from the man himself, knowingly in the public arena now in publication. BUT I'll cover what could be just in case.



On whether he hesitated in doing a Bond film:
"I did, yes. I always hesitate... You ask yourself, hang on: what James Bond are we talking about? The thing about Spectre is that it is not the work of hack writers. It does not have a hack director. The actors are not hams. The action sequences in Mexico are extravagant to say the least. The scenes in Austria are traditional Bond action in the snow. These films with Daniel Craig have shifted the tone. They don't depend on a set formula that forces actors simply to go through the motions."



On whether he is playing the classic Bond villain Blofield:



On whether a Bond film can be artistically fulfilling:
"A James Bond film can be artistically fulfilling. Absolutely it can. It can be complex and it can be interesting. I consider Bond movies to be an extension of popular theatre, a kind of modern mythology. You see the same sort of action in Punch and Judy, or in the folk theatre of various cultures, like Grand Guignol."


On achieving success later in his career:
"I do feel I can say - without smugness - that this feels good. I am entitled. I am entitled to judge the situation and say that yes: it feels good, and that yes, I agree with you. I feel like I served my time. I feel I have paid [my dues]."

Is it just me, or has he just waltzed in from Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland?


That's some weird photoshopping on his head.

He might be lying like Naomie Harris did that she is not playing Moneypenny in Skyfall ..
