Actors Miroslav Nemec and Udo Wachtveitl have been investigating cases at the Bavarian Radio "crime scene" since 1991 as detectives Batic and Leitmayr. In an interview, the duo talks about a possible end to their two roles.
The Munich "Tatort" duo is thinking about his end. There are still no concrete plans, said the actors Miroslav Nemec and Udo Wachtveitl in a double interview with the "Augsburger Allgemeine". "On the other hand, you have to say: We're not 30 anymore," said the 64-year-old Wachtveitl. "And at some point the question arises in the firmament as to how long we want to continue jumping over fences."
The 68-year-old Nemec agrees with his colleague: "Udo is right: it can't go on forever." But he couldn't do much with a serial death as a "crime scene" finale. "There are two of us, so you have to think: Should one die, both or should both live on? Well, I prefer to live," emphasized the Ivo Batic actor.
"We won't have a melodramatic death," said Wachtveitl. It has become fashionable, but it doesn't suit the duo. "We will find another solution." However, it should not be a normal retirement for the commissioners Batic and Leitmayr. "Well, we're not going to retire just like that." Batic and Leitmayr have been in the service of Bayerischer Rundfunk (BR) since 1991 as fictitious investigators in the ARD crime film series "Tatort".
The next "crime scene" with the people of Munich can be seen on Sunday (March 12) in the first. Soccer star Joshua Kimmich can be seen in a mini-role as a fitness trainer. However, Nemec and Wachtveitl did not experience the day of shooting with Kimmich. "My colleague Kalli was with him," says Wachtveitl. "But according to reports, Joshua Kimmich did a very professional job and was very friendly." He "just knows the 90-minute format".
