Best Supporting Actor Supports Water For Elephants!

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.

Reese Witherspoon will be playing the part of Marlena in the film, and Robert Pattinson will play Jacob. Filming will begin in June. Read more here and here.

I’m so much more excited about the movie now! I loved Waltz in Bastards and I’m not a huge Penn fan. He just didn’t seem like the right person. This is awesome.
