Christoph Waltz (German pronunciation: ; born October 4, 1956) is an Austrian actor.

He is the second Austrian actor to receive an Oscar.

Waltz was born in Vienna, where he studied acting at the Max Reinhardt Seminar. He also attended the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York.

In Quentin Tarantino's 2009 film Inglourious Basterds, Waltz portrayed Standartenf├╝hrer Hans Landa of the Schutzstaffel (SS) aka "The Jew Hunter." For this role, he received the Best Actor Award at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival and has received acclaim for the performance from critics and the public. In 2009, he began sweeping critics' awards circuits, receiving awards for Best Supporting Actor role from the New York Film Critics Circle, Boston Society of Film Critics, Los Angeles Film Critics Association and for Best Supporting Actor at the 67th Golden Globe Awards and the 16th Screen Actors Guild Awards.
