Spectre: Christoph Waltz Admits He "Didn't Nail" Iconic Bond Villain

But, would he accept the Blo-job again?

It's already been widely reported that Daniel Craig isn't that much of a fan of playing James Bond. Like, to the point where he'd rather commit violent suicide, even with astronomical amounts of money offered to him to carry on.

But he's not the only one who didn't entirely enjoy their experience on Spectre. Apparently, Christoph Waltz wasn't entirely happy with his own work as Ernst Stavro Blofeld, despite the possibility of him staying on in the role as his predecessors have.

Waltz spoke to German magazine Zeit-Magazin Mann (via CommanderBond) to reflect on the fact that the future of Bond is very much up in the air.

“Right now, nobody even knows which studio will produce the next and if Daniel will return. All of that is filed under ‘carry on.’"

So will he be back?

“I don’t know about that. Nobody knows. It wasn’t talked about, except in the press."

But that doesn't mean Waltz wouldn't return if the opportunity was presented to him. After all, he has unfinished business, because of his own perception of his performance:

“I cannot claim that I’ve really nailed Blofeld. Overall, it held water and was okay. But it wasn’t what I’ve been looking for. I was searching for more inspiration."

More inspiration from the director? From the script? Bit of a sideswipe that.
