Watch: Tarantino's Revenge Trilogy Ends with SNL's 'Djesus Uncrossed'
This weekend, just a week before the 85th Academy Awards show, Austrian actor Christoph Waltz hosted the newest "Saturday Night Live" on NBC. One of the segments was a two-minute fake trailer for the latest "ultimate historical revenge fantasy" from Tarantino - Djesus Uncrossed, starring Oscar nominee Waltz as Djesus ("the D is silent"). It's actually an impressive and hilarious Django Unchained-meets-Inglourious Basterds-meets-Jesus spoof with lots of amusing dialogue from Tarantino's films and scenes from Kill Bill and everything else. I don't say this about anything on SNL anymore, but this might just be a must watch.
One-liner via NBC.com: "In Quentin Tarantino's new historical revenge thriller, DJesus Uncrossed, Jesus emerges from his tomb and has the Romans on his radar." Beyond Christoph Waltz actually having fun with the role and some great comedy writing, this spoof trailer has some impressive production design. I love the Basterds segment with Brad Pitt as St. Peter and they nail everything else when it comes to playing off of the Django trailers. Even the critics' quotes are hilarious. "I never knew how much Jesus used the n-word." Ha! Great job SNL, and Waltz, one of their best segments in a while. And perfectly timed before the 2013 Oscars.
