I had no idea Oscar winner Christoph Waltz could do comedy so well. This Jimmy Kimmel Live! video goes on too long, but it’s funny.

This is hilarious. This guy could become another Robert De Niro.
lol…he also did a parody of a viral Youtube music video called “Trolololo…” once on Jimmy Kimmel, it was pretty funny stuff.
Agreed. Saw it last night. It’s a little long, but Waltz is hilarious in it.
Nikki, you’ve proved it yet again. You’re a great reporter but have terrible taste in comedy.
This is the worst, laziest version of this skit I can possibly think of…
Chill out dude. Leave your apartment for 5 minutes and take a deep breath. Everything is going to be alright.
Hey Comedy guy — I’d love to hear some of your better versions of this skit that you can imagine. I bet they’re awesome. Since you’re a comedy guy and all.
I would contend that the reason Christopher Waltz won an Oscar in the first place was because of his comedic ability.
I agree. It’s similar to Malcolm McDowell in A Clockwork Orange. An absolute monster who still manages to make you laugh, which makes the film even more disturbing.
I love Christoph Walt! Seeing him poke fun of AMERICAN IDOL, a show I hate, totally makes my day. If you’ve seen the previous video he made for JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE!, you’d notice that the troopers are wearing bows. He must have humped them! XD
In case you hadn’t noticed, Waltz’s turn in Inglourious Basterds wasn’t exactly straight.
He nailed it. That’s why Idol is nothing without Simon’s remarks. I can’t believe that people watch it. I remember how in one article they wrote: “Contestants, they don’t care what Randy or Paula will say. They only care what Simon will say”. Which means they respected him and didn’t care about others. Something tells me that now they only care about viewers and don’t give a damm about what Jlo, Steven or Randy will say.
Ah, Deadline Hollywood.
Great dish, great scoops, great provocateuring.
And when they tell you something is !!!!HILARIOUSLY FUNNY!!!, you can rest assured that it will be mildly somewhat sort of amusing.
Jdog, you are such a hater, dog. Jdog.
OT but thank you! for posting a clip for iPhones (Mac). Normally the clips posted won’t play on this platform.
his package looked nice in those tight pink pants lol.
Finally an “American Idol” worthy of watching…Those ridiculous judges have nothing meaningful to say..They repeat themselves week after week…with 3 words..good, swag…and well, good. Steven Tyler is annoying and has no idea what the hell he is talking about..Jacob Lusk is nothing more than a sunday gospel church singer…this guy is NOT nor ever will be an American Idol… Seriously Where is SIMON….okay for now I’ll take Christoph as a judge because he is clearly right on…way to go Kimmel!
