    This is the only thread that matters. Dedicated to the most talented/bizarre actor of all time. So whats your favorite Walken movie?

    For me, Nick of Time.

    He makes anything interesting.
     
  3. I saw the Stepford Wives last nite.

    It was Walken at his finest.

    Is he the opposite of Christopher Reeve?















    yeah I know it's wrong.
     
  8. I always liked Suicide Kings, Communion, Prophecy...
    When i went to see "Man on Fire" at the show...i thought he had an interesting role there too.
    Its all good, he is just one solid actor IMO :D

    He's probably my favorite actor, and I agree he makes almost anything interesting. The all-Walken Saturday Night Live a couple weeks back really showcased his fantastic comedic side. He also looks VERY much like my father, except that Christopher Walken has no eyebrows and we Tylers look like we have caterpillars crossing our faces. My favorites with him are probably Suicide Kings and The Prophecy.

    I think he's at his best sometimes in SNL skits. I mean does anyone whose seen the cowbell skit hear "Don't Fear the Reaper" and not think, "I got a fever and the only cure is more cowbell" now?

    "Fellas...explore the studio space."

    i also liked when SNL was doing the "try-outs" for Star Wars and Chris showed up to try out for Han Solo's part. Hilarious!

    Can I mention "Sleepy Hollow," where he played the headless horseman... And had one line the entire movie (since most of the time he had no head). All he said was "AHHHHHHH!"

    :p
     
  17. I love his Pulp Fiction cameo. "Your father had this watch up his ass for four years." :D
