Somebody's gotta keep his eye on the ball.
Today is the 65th birthday of Christopher Walken (bio - quotes).
For many years he was an actor I found rather creepy, but he's REALLY grown on me.
To celebrate his day, I submit to you some of his best--his best movies and his best roles.
(You could make a case that he plays the same role in every movie, but they do at least give him a different name in each one.)
His best movies:
- The Dead Zone
- The Deer Hunter
- Batman Returns
- The Rundown
- Wedding Crashers
His best roles:
- The Bruce Dickinson, the needer of more cowbell
- Hatcher in The Rundown
- Caesar the exterminator in Mousehunt
Any other suggestions?
Here's Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven," read by Christopher Walken.
