I'm just glad they remembered his awesome music video with Fatboy Slim.

Jesus he doesn't look that old. He was just in seven psycopaths and still looks great.

Article could have been much better. I actually looked up to see if it was a DailyFail article. Not anywhere near as much trivia and "fun facts" as there could have been. Definitely better than not having one, though. Love that FatBoy Slim video, the clown pics made me even MORE scared of him.

I just love the way he delivers this line in Suicide Kings.

"  I'm going to give you an opportunity: get out of this. Now. Before it gets so f*cked up nobody could ever recover."

He really punches the phrase I bolded.

Got 45 minutes?

Very worth your time.

Especially the bit about filming the famed  True Romance scene with Dennis Hopper

propasaurus: Is it really his birthday, though?

Actor Christopher Walken is such a big fan of birthday celebrations that he pretends he is marking the milestone on every film he shoots.

The Oscar-winning screen star, 60, tells the white lies so he can indulge in cake -- and insists a particular method has to be employed in order to get the sweet treats.

He says, "You can only do it once a movie. I get up early and I'm in the make-up chair at six in the morning. I pretend that I'm sad. Sooner or later, someone says, 'Chris, what's wrong? You look a little sad.' And I say, 'Well, it's my birthday and I'm all alone...'

"But the key thing is to say after that, 'Make sure you don't tell anyone.' Then around lunchtime, they have a cake, maybe some gifts or champagne.champagna"

How about with a boat ride off Catalina?

Good times.

The coolest gig Walken did that pretty much noone saw...

Back in the 90's, he was the lead role in a video game called 'Ripper'. He played the part of a corrupt detective named Vincent Magnotta. The final puzzle of that game took me and my buddies a weekend to solve.

Yea. One puzzle.


Still, cool game, and he knocked the ball out of the park as is his usual...

I think I attempted to play that beast. 6 cds if i recall. I think I was too young though and most of it was lost on me. It was so long ago, I can't remember if my friend owned it or my brothers.

It came out in 1996, so I was already in my 20s. Pretty dark,even for that age group. HARD as shiat.

To avoid spoilers, heh, all I'll say about it was the end has to do with the Blue Oyster Cult.
