Los Angeles: Austrian actor Christoph Waltz will receive the 2,536th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this December.

The 58-year-old Oscar winner's friend and 'Django Unchained' director Quentin Tarantino will be among the speakers inducting Waltz prior to the unveiling, reported Hollywood Life.

Announcing the news, Ana Martinez, the producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies, said, "Christoph Waltz is one of Austria's greatest exports and Hollywood is thrilled to add his name to our internationally known Walk of Fame."

The ceremony will come between the US releases of two of Waltz' films - comedy 'Horrible Bosses' 2 and Tim Burton's drama 'Big Eyes'.
