      Christopher Walken

      Christopher Walken

      Highest Rated: 97% Annie Hall (1977)

      Lowest Rated: 6% Gigli (2003)

      Birthday: Mar 31, 1943

      Birthplace: Astoria, New York, USA

      Having made the rare successful transition from child player to adult star, Christopher Walken went on to become one of the most respected and sometimes feared performers on screen, if only because of his offbeat portrayal of sinister villains. With a dry, deadpan delivery that was oft-imitated by his contemporaries, Walken himself was as much of a cultural phenomenon as some of his performances. After cutting his teeth on the stage in musicals and later dramatic productions, he made his first impression on film as the demented brother of the titular "Annie Hall" (1977) before winning an Academy Award for his tormented Vietnam veteran who becomes obsessed with playing Russian roulette in "The Deer Hunter" (1978). With his status secure, Walken spent the next few decades turning in numerous performance gems in a never-ending string of projects that ranged from Oscar-winning films to bargain bin rentals, including "Biloxi Blues" (1988), "True Romance" (1993) and "Pulp Fiction" (1994). Peppered into his résumé were some of the most outlandish, over-the-top villains ever put on film, like the bleach-blonde industrialist Max Zorin in "A View to a Kill" (1985); the corrupt business man, Max Shreck, who wears human molars as cuff links in "Batman Returns" (1992); and the sadistic Headless Horseman in "Sleepy Hollow" (1995). Though occasionally in danger of self-parody throughout his career, Walken was always relevant, as the "More Cowbell" skit on "Saturday Night Live" (NBC, 1975) indicated. He was also capable at any time of turning in an Oscar-caliber performance, as he did in "Catch Me If You Can" (2002), proving that the always unpredictable Walken was worthy of his stature as one of the most respected actors working in Hollywood.
