Christoph Waltz 'SNL' 2013 VIDEO: Monologue With 'Casual' Hitler
Actor Christoph Waltz hosted Saturday Night Live on Feb. 16 for his first time ever and in his opening monologue he was joined by a fake Adolf Hitler, as he made fun of Germans and their sense of humor before breaking out into an Austrian song.
The Django Unchained actor began his monologue by telling the audience how he longed to host SNL for a while and the reason he has not done so until Saturday night.
"I've wanted to host for a long time but they've always said to me, 'Why you? You don't have a sense of humor," he began. " 'You're a serious German actor.' Well first of all I'm not German, I'm Austrian and Austrians have a wonderful sense of humor, Germans, not so much."
Waltz, who said he was the first German speaking host in the history of the show, adding that people's ideas of Austria "are so cliché." After that, SNL cast member Taran Killam came on stage dressed as "casual" Adolph Hitler.
Waltz then sang an Austrian song called "Smile, Damn You, Smile" when roughly translated and he was joined with backup singers from the SNL cast. Watch below Waltz's opening monologue from Saturday Night Live.
The episode included a performance by Alabama Shakes and skits about the Carnival Cruise incident, Pope Benedict's retirement, the Russian meteor strike, the State of the Union address and even Marco Rubio's talked about sip of water during his State of the Union rebuttal.
Poking fun at Tarantino's movie, Waltz starred in a spoof video called Djesus Uncrossed, described as the "ultimate historical revenge fantasy" featuring Jesus Christ played by Waltz. He was portrayed as a killer who "may be wearing sandals but he can still kick a**."
"No more mister nice Jesus," Waltz said while pretending to be Christ in a white robe and thorn crown while holding a machine gun.
