Oscar winner Christoph Waltz models for Prada
Italian fashion house Prada has cast two-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz to front their latest campaign, Autumn/Winter 2013 menswear.
Joining Christoph in the ads is British actor Ben Whishaw and American star Ezra Miller.

The three men play the roles of protagonists, which see them strike a variety of smouldering poses.
Christoph, who has taken home best supporting actor Oscars for his roles as Dr. King Schultz in Django Unchained and Col. Hans Landa in Inglorious Basterds, embodies a sophisticated older gentleman, wearing a red-collared shirt under a thick knit beige sweat and blacked out shades.
Ben, who is best known for his role as Q in the 2012 James Bond blockbuster Skyfall, wears a dark blue blazer over a camel-hued poloneck sweater. Ezra, who played the troubled teen from We Need To Talk About Kevin, rocks a red leather jacket with a pair of ankle-grazing trousers.
It's not the first time the fashion house has hired actors to front their campaigns. In attempts to strengthen their ties with the movie industry, Prada has produced previous campaigns featuring Hollywood heavyweights such as Gary Oldman, Willem Defoe and Benicio Del Toro.
In the shoot with Benicio, two younger faces were included in the line-up – Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who starred alongside Keira Knightley in Anna Karenina and Dane DeHaan, who will feature in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
''Four leading men – two of them iconic stars and two trailblazing new talents – bring their individual sense of style to the spring/summer 2013 menswear campaign," a spokesperson for Prada said of the collaboration.
Shot in London, again by David Sims, the series of stylish black and white images show the handsome men striking their best poses as they model the brand's latest wares.
