Watch Jimmy Kimmel Audition for ‘Siegfried and Roy’ Biopic with Christoph Waltz

Last Thursday Jimmy Kimmel had two-time Academy Award winner, and German actor, Christoph Waltz on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”, and while promoting Waltz’s role in “The Legend of Tarzan”, the topic of the recently announced Siegfried and Roy biopic came up and the two decided to make a humorous audition tape together.

Clearly Waltz has the upper hand here on numerous levels, but Kimmel tried to defend his own go at the German accent with “Kimmel is a German name so I think I know what German sounds like”. All of this led to Waltz walking off camera, of course all in fun.
