    Has it changed at all in the last 15 years?

    That man is a god.

    And in response to your question, I think it may have gotten a little less in mass.
     
  3. Christopher Walken? Donald Trump, I say!

    Walken rocks me...

    Watched deer hunter not long ago again... christ he is good... i really think people underrate him...
     
  5. christopher walken is my favorite actor. every time my hair gets kind of long (like right now), my family says i look like him. i don't really see it, but i think it's cool anyway, ha.
     
  6. I read that he spends 15 minutes a day pulling on it, for hair/scalp exercise.

    In his spare time when he is not pulling his hair or other
    body parts, Mr. Walken finds time to play bass in a
    'Little Bar Band' in Baltimore MD, and sometimes ranges as
    far astray as Hershey PA. Here is a little pic of Christopher at
    work shakin' the booties at a gig in March. More pics of
    Christopher and his alter ego can be found at
    stillcounting.com :ninja:





    Ed, I told you, you are SO TOAST!
    :D

    ?!?!

    I am the only person I've ever known who doesn't like his acting... everyone else says, "Christ he is good..." So by that theory, the only reason he's underrated is because I don't like him. If I liked him, in your opinion he'd be aptly rated.

    Its different... I am not saying that people don’t like him... they do... But it feels like most people who say they like him and he is pretty good actor don’t mean it... they say it as in "that’s a right thing to say". But in fact they don’t really know any of his works...

    But main thing i mean is he is somewhat underrated in the industry... Most movies he is in somewhat of a background actor... I kind of think that makes him so damn good... But it does feel like he is somewhat underground type of actor...

    Basically what i am saying is... if you come do a random person and go "name a good actor/actress" you will get pimped out name like Arnold, Tom Cruise etc...

    Never a good actor... usually actors that where pimped out by promoters… I think it’s a good thing… but it sad that people like things because someone told them to like them…

    I might be wrong but that’s the feel i get... Oh i am not directing this at anyone here... Taste is taste... you might like something you might not... but what i am talking about is not taste its popularity... Plus musicians tend to be more open minded:)

    Cheers

    Gotcha, and I agree, to a point. I forget which one though. :smug:

    I've never heard Tom Cruise or Arnold get called "good actors" by anyone. :barf x100000000:

    Unless of course, you mean Tom Arnold. :eek:

    Weapon of Choice, he is a fine dancer. Featuring the low end wizardry of Mr. Bootsy Collins.

    He hid it in the one place he knew he could hide something: his ass. Five long years, he wore this watch up his ass.

    Five long years...
     
  18. Walken has nothing on Jackson Browne -- he hasn't changed his hair about 35 years!

    I watched Annie Hall the other week and saw a _very_ young Walken in a small part. It was weird.
