Christoph Waltz is no stranger to playing creeps and bad guys, so he will be right at home as one of the villains in the upcoming comedy sequel Horrible Bosses 2.
Chris Pine on the other hand might be a tad out of his element playing the other villain in Horrible Bosses 2. Pine tends to play good guys and pretty boys in his movies. He is definitely not as experienced at playing the heavy as Christoph Waltz.
Here are two new images showing Pine and Waltz as the antagonists in Horrible Bosses 2, which also stars Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis.
Maybe Waltz can give Pine some pointers on how to play a villain. It’s not that hard, just do a German accent and say words like “strudel” in a vaguely menacing way.
Actually, if we’re going to be honest, this seems like somewhat effed up casting. Waltz I get, but Pine? I don’t think Chris Pine should be paired with Christoph Waltz in any way, shape or form.
Waltz is one of our finest character actors and Pine…is one of our most boring leading men.
I get why Pine wants to be cast as a heavy in this kind of movie, but I just don’t think it’s very clever casting. What, Ryan Reynolds wasn’t available?
