Christoph Waltz Will Terrify, Amuse as ‘SNL’ Host — VIDEO

Christoph Waltz SNL

Christoph Waltz is hosting Saturday Night Live for the first time this weekend, and from the look of his promos we’re in for one interesting night. The Oscar winner, who is up for Best Supporting Actor once again for his work in Quentin Tarantino‘s Django Unchained, will be joined by musical guest Alabama Shakes (and honestly, we could watch Waltz say Alabama Shakes all night and be satisfied). 

We’ve seen Waltz play dark characters with a comical edge (see: Inglorious Basterds, Django Unchained), but he certainly brings out the terror in his promos with Fred Armisen (now just Fr). You see, Waltz doesn’t get mad at his cast mates… he gets even.

Will he bring the funny along with his evil? Watch the promos below, and tune in 102.5 hours from now to see how he stacks up:
