    christoph is a funny guy who deserves more exposure, now give him good material writers and watch him light up the screen

    Omfg, I’m in love with Christoph! It’s unfortunate the writing will probably let him down, but I’m super excited to see him bust out his comedy chops.

    That’s Oscar-WINNING actor…he won for Inglorious Basterds….I understand that they are saying he is nominated this year…but it really should read that way :)

    That’s a bingo! This is my old guy crush, so I am totally in. They need to bring back Norm MacDonald to play Quentin Tarantino.

  8. Sarabi says:

    I’m so thrilled for him!

    Jennifer Lawrence’s episode from 2 weeks ago was probably one of the worst episodes of SNL I have ever seen. It wasn’t even her fault though, the writing was just awful. Next week is Justin Bieber, so I’m gonna pass on it, but I’ll definitely watch Christopher Waltz’s episode. He’s a good enough actor to make it work, but again, it’s all on the writers.
