In Quentin Tarantino’s memorable 2009 film, “Inglourious Basterds”, actor Cristoph Waltz, who portrayed SS Col. Hans Landa, stole the show with his unforgettably chilling refrain, “Oooh, that’s a Bingo…”

His performance in “Basterds” resulted in his first Oscar as Best Supporting Actor.

Waltz, who picked up his second best supporting actor Oscar at last month’s 85th Academy Awards, winning the Best Supporting Actor award for his trademark cool performance in Tarantino’s Django Unchained was so convincing as the Nazi, that hearing of his plans to travel to Israel may cause consternation to some.

Fear not!

The two-time Oscar winner, is heading to the Jewish State next week to celebrate his Jewish daughter’s wedding.

That’s right. Waltz, whose ex-wife is Jewish, making their three children Members of the Tribe, will be in Israel to see his daughter, Miriam, tie the knot in Jerusalem.

And, while the Vienna native Waltz watches his daughter walk down the aisle, he’ll also spend time with his Orthodox son who is studying for his future as a lawyer.

This is Waltz’s first trip to Israel since he was there in 2009, along with his favourite director, to promote “Basterds.”
