Christoph Waltz Worried Nationality Would Hurt His Career

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Casting, Celeb News,

Christoph WaltzChristoph Waltz was worried being half-Austrian and half-German would affect his career. The Oscar-winning actor almost quit acting when he was told he was unlikely to break Hollywood and would probably be cast in supporting roles as a German Nazi for the rest of his life because of his thick Austrian accent.

"I was introduced to Paul Kohner years ago, who was the most powerful agent in the 30s. He was at the end of his career and I was at the beginning of my career - he actually knew my grandfather. He said, 'Of course I can do something for you in Hollywood, that's not the problem. But you have to ask yourself, do you want to spend the rest of your life walking through the background yelling "Heil Hitler?"' And that was probably the most valuable thing he said to me. I said, 'No, thank you,' and went back to Europe."

Christoph, 56, is ironically best known for his Best Supporting Actor Oscar win for his role as Nazi Colonel Hans Landa in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds.

Stefan Della RovereDespite Team USA dethroning the Canadians in the World Junior Hockey Championships with their 6-5 overtime victory, Canada is still the top team on the world junior stage. The 2010 WJHC concluded last night with an exciting conclusion capping a rather disappointing tournament – as least as far as competitive balance goes. 16 out of 31 games in the tournament saw the victorious team win by four goals or more. The two first place teams in round robin play, Canada and Sweden, outscored their opponents by a combined score of 63-12, while the two last place teams, Latvia and Austria, were outscored 16-73. Is this really the best product that the International Ice Hockey Federation can offer?
