Ok, so there was a rumor that Sean Penn was going to play August in the film adaptation of Sara Gruen‘s Water For Elephants. This would have been great. But today I learned that it will, in fact, be Christoph Waltz starring in that role.
That’s right, Waltz, who just won an Oscar for his performance in Inglorious Basterds (which, is fantastic, if you haven’t seen it). I don’t know about you, but I’m really excited to see what he’ll do with this role.
