You will struggle to find an actor that is cooler, more accomplished or as iconic as the great, Christopher Walken. From starring Robert De Niro in The Deer Hunter to playing Frank Abagnale’s father in Catch Me If You Can, Walken has appeared in over 100 movies and television shows and is a multi-award winner, and he has proven himself to be the master of playing eccentric, psychopathic and off-kilter characters.
In celebration of Christopher Walken‘s 76th birthday, here are the New York native’s 10 greatest performance of all-time. Enjoy!
10. Annie Hall (1977)
Only Christopher Walken can be hilarious and utterly terrifying at the same time, and this is best on show in Woody Allen’s 1977 romantic comedy Annie Hall. Walken plays the titular character’s (Diane Keaton) brother, Duane, with Woody Allen playing her boyfriend, Alvy Singer. In an incredibly creepy, awkward and comical scene, Duane very calmly tells Alvy that he often feels a desire to turn his car into oncoming traffic when driving at night. He then vividly describes what he sees happening in the crash, just before being asked to drive his sister and Alvy to the airport. He is then shown driving completely expressionless with a very nervous looking Alvy in the passenger seat. It may not be a major role for Walken, but it is a truly unforgettable one in a film that won Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Actress.http://pyxurz.blogspot.ca/2011/12/annie-hall-page-3-of-6.html Source: Pyxurz.blogspot.ca
