Charlie Day: Waltz's a 'jokester'

Christoph Waltz is funnier than people may expect, Horrible Bosses star Charlie Day has revealed.

The Oscar-winning Austrian actor, best known for his roles in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained and Inglourious Basterds, joins the cast of the comedy sequel as villainous investor Burt Hanson, alongside his son Rex, played by Chris Pine.

"He's a jokester. He's got a dry sense of humour and he's constantly, I guess they're jokes," Charlie said.

His co-star Jason Bateman added: "They're punchline-free jokes. They're a series of set-ups," before Charlie continued: "They could just be threats. But he's a funny guy."

Jason, Charlie and Jason Sudeikis reprise their roles as Nick Hendricks, Dale Arbus and Kurt Buckman respectively, alongside Jennifer Aniston and Kevin Spacey.

"He makes it very, very easy to be intimidated. He's an incredibly talented man who's got a lot of gravitas," Bateman said of Spacey. "He and Christoph Waltz give a good, strong 'bad guy' in this sequel."

Bateman also revealed that he has to let out his laughs before filming, so he can play the straight guy.

"My guy's always got to be not enjoying it. That is tough because we do have such a good time so I have to get all my giggles out before the camera start rolling," he admitted.

Horrible Bosses 2 is in cinemas now.
