Chistopher Walken is THE MAN!

Any other Christopher Walken fans out there? Here is an essay he wrote once upon a time I thought I'd share for those of you who do not worship Mr. Walken like you should:

"Do you enjoy eating hot dogs? I hope you won't be put off by my frankness when I tell you that I absolutely love them. In fact, I enjoy no food item more than a freshly-boiled hot dog.
Now, I've done a lot of movies, and it's true that I've worked with quite a few celebrities who did not share this opinion. I'm sorry to say that these people have always angered me. There are two types of people in this world: those who eat hot dogs whenever it is possible to do so, and those who opt to do other things with their free time.

"Who do the latter think they are kidding? What pastime could be more rewarding than the consumption of hot dogs? I haven't yet found one, and I don't expect to in my lifetime.
Unlike other foods, hot dogs can be eaten at any time, in any place, and it is not necessary to cook them. Now, I ask you: Why not eat hot dogs? They are delicious. I carry a bag of hot dogs with me wherever I go. I eat them from the bag whenever I get the urge, regardless of the circumstances. When I make a movie, my hot dogs are my co-stars. If, in the middle of a scene, I decide I want to consume a hot dog, I do so. I waste the director's time and thousands of dollars in film stock, but in the end, it is all worth it, because I enjoy eating hot dogs more than I enjoy acting.

"This bothers some people. I was supposed to portray Batman, but when Tim Burton learned of my hot dog cravings, he asked Michael Keaton to wear the cape. To this day, I am peeved about this.
When we filmed The Dead Zone, I ate over 800 hot dogs a day. It was necessary. My character needed to come across as intense as possible, and I found the inspiration for that intensity in my intense love for hot dogs. The director, David Cronenberg, said that he would never work with me again. I kept eating hot dogs when the cameras were rolling, and that seemed to bother him. I say fuck him. He doesn't even like hot dogs.
I would like to end by emphasizing once again that I really like to eat hot dogs. If any of you people disagree, I loathe you. I despise you. Not only that, but I also despise all your loved ones. I want to see them torn to pieces by wild dogs. If I ever meet you in person, I'll smash your brains in with a fucking bat. Then we'll see who doesn't like hot dogs. "

-- Christopher Walken

I like hot dogs, but 800 a day? He'd look like Jabba or Orson Welles.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

Oh my god, I LOVE Christopher Walken!! He is definitely one of my favorite actors, if not my absolute fave..

He was SO awesome in The Prophecy and True Romance.. While I loved both movies, I would have to say that Walken's presence in them is the absolute BEST thing about them..

I read (or saw?) an interview with him once, and he was talking about his role in A View To A Kill. He said that when he acting in character, he kept saying to himself: "Look what they did to my hair...look what they did to my hair..." He said that was the only thing going through his mind. ROFLMAO!! That's pure Christopher Walken right there!

I am laughing my ASS off! I LOVE that! And that picture of him...is that from Saturday Night Live? I absolutely ADORE Christopher Walken! You totally hit the nail on the head! He is fantastic!

But seriously, I don't do hot dogs! I will order a corn dog and eat the corn, but not the dog! Seriously!

Hush up, Five -- who are YOU to judge! LOL!

He left a message on Bob Schneider's telephone recorder that is a scream. Bob put it on his website at bobschneidermusic dotcom. I laughed my ass off when he told me about it...we were talking about movies and I had just seen 'Around the Bend', sort of a bittersweet story about fathers and sons.

Walken is a guy that started out eccentric and allowed the world to finally catch up with him.

Maybe having the shining boosted his metabolism?

For me you are preaching to the choir. I LOVE Christopher Walken and all of his gleeful strangeness. Did you know he's an accomplished song and dance man as well?

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

    I love Walken on SNL. One of my favorite times to watch SNL is when he is on. Didnt he do the triangle with Will Farrell? No it was the cowbell

    I NEED MORE COWBELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOLOL
T, I suggest that you lok around for "SNL: The best of Christopher Walken." I looked for it for a year (too stubborn to order it online,) and found it in Target one fateful day. It has all his skits from SNL. It is hilarious.

Jim, I really like the way you put that:

"Walken is a guy that started out eccentric and allowed the world to finally catch up with him."

If I ever get famous, I doubt abyone will ever say that about me, becuase I'll be a writer, and even if I am weird, it won't be out of the ordinary. Writers are supposed to have weird habits and quirks.

Reminds me of a scene from Tombstone:

Earp: I'm not interested, Marshal. I'm just here to write a novel.
Marshal: I never knew a novelist that didn't have weird quirks.
Earp: Well, I already got the quirks. Might as well have the novel too.

Wahine, I did know about his singing and dancing. I prefer his movies though.

Dano, I'm glad you liked Suicide Kings too! I was recently bummed to discover Walken is in "Catch Me if You Can." I'm not a big fan of Tom Spanks or LeoNERDo Decaprio, but I'll have to watch the movie if Walken is in it.

As for TDA's post, I just want people to know that I was not addressing him directly by the time I got into the second paragraph of my response. I know the man served, and I was just ranting at everyone and no one all at the same time. I meant what I said, but by the time I got good and riled up, I was just raving to anyone who would read.

Ok I LOVE his movies... his quirky weirdness. But I am completely fascinated with watching him dance in Fatboy Slim's - Weapon of Choice video. Wow.

I once described him as "creepy sexy" to friend. I then had to explain that I meant he could be sooo creepy at times that it was SEXY with a capital S-E-X. Hmmm she hasn't called me in awhile.
