ROUGHT CUT: NO REPORTER NARRATION
Since winning an Academy Award for his role as Colonel Hans Landa in the 2009 Quentin Tarantino movie 'Inglourious Basterds', Austrian-born actor Christoph Waltz has swiftly become the toast of Hollywood. He won another Oscar for his role in 'Django Unchained' as well as a Golden Globe, two BAFTAs, and even the Best Actor award at the Cannes film festival. Now, he's currently nominated for a Golden Globe for his role of Walter Keane in the Tim Burton biopic 'Big Eyes'. The film is about the 1950s painter Margaret Keane, whose images of children with big eyes became iconic at the time and were reproduced throughout North America. However, everyone thought that the paintings were the work of her husband, Walter, who claimed credit for her work. Margaret is played by Amy Adams, who is also nominated for a Golden Globe. 'Big Eyes' is director Tim Burton's first big screen adaptation of a true story since 1994's 'Ed Wood' which starred Johnny Depp. Burton is best known for his fantastical and fairy tale-esque movies such as 'Alice in Wonderland', 'Edward Scissorhands' and 'Beetlejuice', but with 'Big Eyes' most reviewers have noted a more natural change of pace for the director. Waltz' next big production is the new Bond film 'SPECTRE' in which he plays the mysterious Oberhauser. However, he's not letting his success go to his head. "If I would confuse success with having reached a goal, I would really be better advised to quit," he quipped. However, the former German TV actor is happy to finally be in the big time. 'Big Eyes' goes on release in the UK and Ireland on December 26th.
