'SNL': Christoph Waltz Jokes About Being a Teen Heartthrob in New Promos (Video)

The Oscar nominee drops by this weekend — a week before the Academy Awards.

With the Oscars just around the corner, Academy Award nominee Christoph Waltz is dropping by Saturday Night Live to dust off his comedic chops.

The Django Unchained star, along with SNL regular Fred Armisen, used this opportunity to show off his lighter side, joking about being a teen heartthrob following Justin Bieber's hosting stint, "getting even" and his "shortened" name.

In one of the promos, Waltz started to come to grips with the immediacy of putting on a live show in just a little more than 102 hours. "Yeah, well, we'll figure it out," a nervous Waltz says as Armisen disappears from frame.

How do you think Waltz will do?

Saturday Night Live airs 11:30 p.m. Saturday on NBC.
