One of the most mysterious men in Hollywood sure has a lot of secrets...
If you aren't a movie buff, there's a decent chance you don't know Christopher Walken's work, so let's get an introduction going.
He's made his name with unique look, for sure.
He's also got an intensity that is pretty much unrivaled among his peers.Don't let that fool you, though.
The man contains multitudes, and one of the faces he wears is that of a very goofy comedy presence.He's a regular presence on SNL, where he entered the pop-culture lexicon as the "more cowbell" guy.
As long as he's been acting, though, he's also been a first-rate, classically-trained dancer.Fans may know this, but if you're familiar with his work only casually, you might now realize that he dances a LOT in his roles.
In his films, he specifically requests to have his character dance. Not to show off his moves — well, maybe that — but because he just enjoys it!
He's danced in so many films that he's even gotten a gig starring in a music video showing his steps.It's for Fatboy Slim's "Weapon of Choice," and the whole thing is literally Chris Walken dancing in an empty hotel lobby.
Not only does he like to dance, but as a classically-trained performer...he's really good.
Yep, it's safe to say Walken is a beloved actor.But it seems we actually don't know much about the star...
This unexpected quality is just one of the aspects of Walken's career that's turned him into not just a well-known actor, but a full-fledged icon.
