Christoph Waltz News: Actor Dishes About Playing Villain In Next James Bond Movie, 'Spectre' [VIDEO]

The Guardian recently did a profile on Christoph Waltz, in which the actor spoke about his successes as an actor and being a part of Spectre.

Unfortunately the actor couldn't give anything away about the next James Bond film in which he plays villain. In fact he revealed he had been perturbed by some silly questions regarding the movie.

"I was asked this morning, 'Can we outdo Skyfall?' What does that even mean? Outdo by what measure? Bigger? Louder? Redder?" he said.

Sam Mendes, the director of Spectre, also had a thing or two to say about Waltz's craft.

"He is a very unusual actor, though, so it can't be a total surprise that he has had an unusual career. It's very rare to find someone whose first language isn't English, yet who has such a complete command of the nuances and subtleties of the English language. He's a one-off."

In the interview, while talking about his early struggles as an actor, Waltz also dismissed the romanticization of art sans the recognition and producing art for arts sake alone.

"It would be completely laughable if I claimed I was always motivated by the pure craft of acting and that recognition doesn't play a part," he said. "Of course it does - that's human nature. The bohemian artist who exists only for his art, it's a myth. OK, it might have been true for Giacometti, but it certainly wasn't for Picasso or Mozart. There is no such thing as pure art. It's a bourgeois conceit."
