He’s won two Oscars and has become probably the greatest actor Quentin Tarantino has ever worked with, and now we’re starting to see Christoph Waltz more and more outside of that Tarantino world. After breaking through with American audiences in Inglorious Basterds, Waltz has been up for numerous roles in big budget movies from The Green Hornet to Horrible Bosses 2.
We can now add the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean 5 to that list as Waltz is reportedly up for a role in the film. The Daily Mail was the first outlet to report that talks between Disney and Waltz have apparently taken place but with nothing yet official about the role, we should proceed with caution.
That’s not to say it wouldn’t happen or that it wouldn’t be a good idea, rather Disney nor Waltz’s camp have said anything about the matter.
So far, Waltz’s ventures outside of the world of Tarantino haven’t been that great, but he can’t help that he seems to be born to spit Tarantino dialogue. But with Johnny Depp coming back for the fifth movie and possibly pitting him against Waltz, Pirates of the Caribbean 5 – which has been titled Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales — is starting to look not so bad after all.
