Christoph Waltz will star with Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon in Water for Elephants
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Christoph Waltz is capitalizing on his great turn in INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS and has just signed on to star with Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon in the upcoming drama WATER FOR ELEPHANTS. He will be playing a cruel, crazy animal trainer that’s also married to the show’s female star (Witherspoon). Pattinson will play a young veterinarian that joins the traveling circus. The role was originally intended for Sean Penn.
As much as I like Waltz, I’m a little disappointed that Penn isn’t going to be playing this role. I would have liked to see what Penn could have done with a role like that, but I’m sure Waltz will do well, too. It seems like a wild character and there are a ton of things an actor could do with it. Hopefully Waltz will be able to recapture some of that craziness he managed to bring to Basterds.
