Christoph Waltz set for Walk of Fame honor

Christmas will come early for Austrian actor Christoph Waltz this year (14) - he is to unveil the 2,536th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on 1 December (14).

The Oscar winner's pal and Django Unchained director Quentin Tarantino will be among the speakers inducting Waltz prior to the unveiling.

Announcing the news on Thursday (20Nov14), Ana Martinez, the producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies, tells WENN, "Christoph Waltz is one of Austria's greatest exports and Hollywood is thrilled to add his name to our internationally known Walk of Fame."

The ceremony will come between the releases of two Waltz films - comedy Horrible Bosses 2 hits cinemas next week (26Nov14) and he will portray Walter Keane opposite Amy Adams in Tim Burton's drama Big Eyes, which will be released on Christmas Day (25Dec14).

Waltz will become the 15th Austrian-born celebrity to unveil a star - the others include Arnold Schwarzenegger, Hedy Lamar, Peter Lorre and Billy Wilder.
