Christopher Walken

Happy Birthday to

Christopher Walken

68 today

Quirky, unpredicatable and unique Walken is a tough performer to cast (even though he's proved his versatility on numerous occasions) maybe his legacy in modern cinema is too tied to a game of Russian Roulette. Lots of work on, but nothing that's screaming out to be watched.

Oh, that Russian Roulette was intense, and I felt his emotional anguish during the hospital interview. I always thought it was too bad that his dancing skills were under-used in film (see "Pennies From Heaven" w/ Steve Martin). He also was responsible for one of the bigger laughs in "Annie Hall." Great post.

I've been thinking about his Annie Hall monologue a lot recently (not in that way) - strange how I generally forget how talented he actually is.
