If you, like our "Idol" recapper Craig Berman, have been wishing that the judges on the show would quit being so darn nice and offer some real criticism of the contestants, "Water for Elephants" star Christoph Waltz is ready to step in and get the job done.

He revealed a clip of his stint as an "Idol" judge during his appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel" Thursday night. Let's just say that going forward, if singers don't impress, they better run for their lives. The actor had more than just a few harsh words for the subpar performers, as he showed recently eliminated contestant Stefano Langone. Check it out:

Hey, Fox! How about looking into adding Waltz to the panel?
