Christoph Waltz Replaces Sean Penn in "Water for Elephants"

Christoph Waltz Replaces Sean Penn in "Water for Elephants"Submit Comment
Christoph Waltz's performance as the charmingly sadistic Col Hans Landa in "Inglourious Basterds" has earned him an Oscar nomination and also recognition among Hollywood circles.

He has already stepped in for Nicolas Cage to star as the villain in Seth Rogen's "Green Hornet" film, and has now snagged Sean Penn's role in "Water for Elephants," opposite Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson.

Based on Sara Gruen's best-selling historical novel of the same name, story centers on a Cornell University veterinary student (Pattinson) who leaves his studies after his parents are killed and joins up with the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth, working as a vet for the circus.

The student falls in love with the circus' star performer, played by Witherspoon. Waltz will play her husband, a dangerous paranoid schizophrenic animal trainer who is as mean to his wife as he is to the circus creatures.

Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend) is set to direct the new film from a script by Richard LaGravenese (The Fisher King, Beloved). The plan is to head into production in June.

Sounds like a pretty good role for him. I smell another supporting actor Oscar nod.

It sucks to see Waltz typecast himself as a villain now that he is a "Hollywood" actor. However, that being said, all of his new roles seem to be ace choices. It will be fun seeing him beat the sh*t out of Pattinson. I am especially looking forward to him playing Sigmund Freud. Cronenberg, Waltz, Fassbender, and Knightley will be very interesting.

So glad Christoph Waltz is getting more movie rolls. I just wish some of the other actors from Ingloris Basterds would start appearing in more movies.
