Bond Baddie Christoph Waltz Doesn't Care About Being Typecast
The actor says he sees the good and bad in every character...
We've seen Christoph Waltz play some pretty nasty characters over the course of his career - the latest of which will be the villainous Franz Oberhauser in upcoming Bond blockbuster, Spectre.
But despite his tendency to lean toward the dark side, the actor isn't worried in the slightest about being typecast by Hollywood because he sees the good and bad in every character.
"I wouldn't really know what bad and good means," he cryptically told MTV.
"I can see what leads you to that assumption, I don't really operate with that because I wouldn't know what to do with it.
"I'm pretty practically minded. I need stuff that I can translate into meaningful action in the sense of the story. So to arrive with the preconceived notion of moral qualification - you couldn't do anything worse to your process than that."
So far, little is known about Waltz's "complex" Bond character, though the actor has denied rumours that he will take on the role of legendary villain Ernst Stavro Blofelt. But he refused to be drawn on the subject, saying: "Let's talk about Bond when we get to it!"
The film, due to hit cinemas in November 2015, will see Daniel Craig's hero investigate a sinister organisation known as SPECTRE, whilst simultaneously navigating the political pressures that threaten the future of MI6.
Craig and co-star Rory Kinnear (who plays MI6 Chief of Staff Bill Tanner) were spotted this week filming scenes on the River Thames in London.
