Waltz Not Playing Blofeld Again

Citing "tradition," the actor says he won't be playing Blofeld in the upcoming film - but that someone else will be.

Talking to Italian movie site Talky Movie, actor Christoph Waltz answered the question of his return to Bond 25 with the following:
"No, I'm sorry. I'm really sad, but that's the tradition, that there is a new...name. Sorry. I would've liked to."

The tradition he refers to is a rather incidental one, in that Blofeld has been played by a new actor in every screen appearance since 1967's You Only Live Twice.

So Waltz seems to be saying Blofeld will be back in Bond 25, but with a new actor in the role. He could just be parsing that information from the fact that he's not been asked back, or he could just be a LYING LIAR, since he repeatedly denied playing Blofeld in the months leading up to the release of Spectre.

Waltz is better in other roles, I don’t know how he was so off his game in SP

This is Christoph "Punch and Judy" Waltz we're talking about, the guy hated the role before he even had it, though looking back perhaps he was telling us all ahead of time how terrible the film was. I would have been absolutely shocked had he returned.

Before waltz was saying he wouldn’t be back unless Craig was back, I think either way he doesn’t want to do the role. And he was better in similar roles in other movies.

I have not watched Spectre (I've had enough!), but it seemed like a poorly depicted Blofeld character.
