This week: Quentin Tarantino's eighth film, the Oscar-winning "Django Unchained," starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson, finds emancipation on DVD and Blu-ray after a celebrated run at the box office.
Also new this week is the pitch-black comedy "Small Apartments," the Southern ghost story "The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia" and the Criterion Collection Blu-ray debut of "Repo Man." Get More »
The two-time Oscar winner was originally slated to star in the Euro-caper sequel as an Interpol agent but was later replaced by "Modern Family" star Ty Burrell in December due to scheduling complications.
Shortly thereafter, though, Waltz told Collider that he was meeting with the Powers That Be about, to use his words, what "might not be a proper part [but] might just be one of those 'cameos.'" Such a cameo, he expected, may not include a dance with Miss Piggy ("they told me that dancing with Miss Piggy is almost impossible because she's totally operated by puppeteers") during her upcoming wedding.

Above is a :15 second video that will either A) change the way you look at the world, B) force you to reexamine your entire life, C) allow you to watch a young Christoph Waltz dancing around in a multi-colored unitard over a red turtleneck as he sings a happy German song to no one at all, or D) all of the above.
Needless to say, it was D for us. Gloriously, it was D. Get More »
Hey guys, remember that hilarious batch of fake Quentin Tarantino posters we made up a couple weeks ago, highlighting all the historical revenge fantasies we wish Tarantino would film? Well, it looks like someone at "Saturday Night Live" must have been paying attention, because last night they actually filmed one of our ideas.
But even we couldn't have guessed at how damn funny "Djesus Uncrossed" would be.
Of course, we called our version "Biblical Proportions," but it's basically the same thing: Christoph Waltz plays a resurrected Jesus who sets out on a bloody rampage of revenge, aided by the greatest posse ever assembled.
Check it out, courtesy of NBC.com. And don't worry, "SNL," you're more than welcome to swipe our ideas any time you like.
To our knowledge, Christoph Waltz is a happily married man, but that doesn't mean he's lost his bachelor-esque touch when it comes to wooing the ladies ... Actually, we take that back. He's totally bad at it, but at least he's shown a hint of a funny bone!
The Oscar-nominated "Django Unchained" star is so skilled at being mean on-screen that he could easily be confused with a bona fide jackass off-camera. To avoid that stigma, Waltz is waltzing around being a comedic guy these days. In addition to hosting "Saturday Night Live" this weekend - the promos for which are relatively innocuous, considering — and punning it up on "Between Two Ferns," he also appeared in this Valentine's Day sketch video for "Jimmy Kimmel Live."
Waltz offers up some terrible, terrible romance advice for Kimmel's viewers. Get More »
Jennifer Lawrence… UGLY! Anne Hathaway… DRUNK! Christoph Waltz… A NAZI!
Everything you've ever suspected about your favorite celebs is exposed through the journalistic vigilance of interviewer Zach Galifianakis in the newest Oscar Edition of "Between Two Ferns" on FunnyOrDie. Get More »
It has become a pastime of late for actors to bite the hand that feeds them and voice their disdain for awards season and critics in general. Left and right, you hear that awards aren't important, that ceremonies are superfluous and that old bag about what an honor it would be to be nominated.
Not Christoph Waltz, however, a Best Supporting Actor winner who seems to relish awards season. Good thing, too, since the German-born Waltz could be in the thick of it once again for his role in Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained." Waltz stars as a dentist-cum-bounty hunter who helps Django (Jamie Foxx) find his wife. Get More »
All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• John Cusack is a triple threat this week! In just the past few days he's scored roles in the legal drama "Due Process," the Stephen King adaptation "Cell" (Cusack's second King adventure, following "1408") and Roger Avary's "Duel"-type thriller, "Airspace."
• Hollywood loves it when a one-night stand leads to true love (and, often, a baby ... and not always in that order). Deadline reports that Amanda Seyfried and Patrick Dempsey will be playing unexpectedly expecting parents in "Wonderful Tonight," a romantic comedy that we hope gets a new title sooner rather than later (sorry, Mr. Clapton, but do you really need the extra money?).

All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
Ewan McGregor is looking to play the bad guy again, following his sleazy turn earlier this year in "Haywire." Deadline reports that the "Trainspotting" star is set to star in "Son of a Gun," an Australia crime thriller that chronicles the complex relationship between a notorious criminal (McGregor) and his young protege. That's not all for McGregor — he'll also be joining Kate Hudson for the showbiz comedy, "Born to Be King," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Penelope Cruz is going to teach us about clothes ... and murder! The "Bandidas" beauty is in talks to star in "Gucci," a drama about the Italian family behind the legendary clothing brand in which she would play Patrizia Reggiani, who was jailed for 29 years for allegedly ordering the 1995 murder of her ex-husband and heir to the family empire, Maurizio Gucci.

In all of cinema, there simply isn't anybody as audacious as Quentin Tarantino. The guy doesn't just push boundaries, he shoves them right off a cliff. So whenever a new glimpse of Tarantino comes along, the only proper response is to drop whatever you're doing and check it out immediately, because chances are there's going to be something in it that will blow your mind.
Like, for instance, every single frame of the new trailer for "Django Unchained." Get More »
