Christopher Walken’s Crazy Career

Christopher Walken turned 68 on the last day of March, what better time to take a look back at his crazy career.

He was initially trained as a dancer, this is evident if you’ve seen the video to Fat Boy Slim’s “Weapon of Choice.” Link to it from here if you want to see it.

Walken was in Woody Allen’s Annie Hall playing the title character’s suicidal brother and he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 1978 for his role in The Deer Hunter.

In Stephen King’s The Dead Zone Christopher was a schoolteacher who becomes a psychic and was a James Bond villain in A View To a Kill.

Many of us know Walken from his appearances on Saturday Night Live. He’s hosted seven times and has created some memorable characters like “The Continental” a suave ladies man and record producer Bruce Dickinson who’s “gotta have more cowbell.”

In Pulp Fiction you might remember him in the scene about the gold watch as Captain Koons. He is currently working on a project called Dead Man Walken.

All together Walken has appeared in more than 100 movies and TV shows over the last 50 years leaving a lot of material for people to imitate, the sincerest form of flattery.
