According to Tarantino, "Inglorious Basterds‘ Col. Hans Landa which was played by Christoph Waltz, is the best character he has ever written.

“Landa is the best character I’ve written and maybe the best I ever will write. I didn’t realize that he was a linguistic genius. He’s probably one of the only Nazis in history who could speak perfect Yiddish," Tarantino said.

According to Screen Daily,  the director also spoke on the auditioning process for the character.

“I was getting worried. Unless I found the perfect Landa, I was going to pull the movie. I gave myself one more week and then I was going to pull the plug. Then Christoph Waltz came in and it was obvious that he was the guy; he could do everything. He was amazing, he gave us our movie back," he said.
