CATCH ME IF YOU CAN

CHRISTOPHER WALKEN (Frank Abagnale, Sr.) won the 1978 Academy Awardâ for Best Supporting Actor for his gripping performance in Michael Cimino's "The Deer Hunter." He also earned a New York Film Critics Award, as well as a Golden Globe nomination for his work in the film.

Walken first gained attention for his work on screen in the role of Diane Keaton's brother Duane in Woody Allen's Oscar-winning Best Picture "Annie Hall." He has since had memorable roles in more than 50 feature films, including Herbert Ross' "Pennies From Heaven"; David Cronenberg's adaptation of Stephen King's "The Dead Zone"; James Foley's "At Close Range," opposite Sean Penn; Mike Nichols' "Biloxi Blues," based on the Neil Simon play; Abel Ferrara's "King of New York"; Tony Scott's "True Romance"; Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction"; Peter O'Fallon's "Suicide Kings"; Joe Roth's comedy "America's Sweethearts," with Julia Roberts, John Cusack and Billy Crystal; and Tim Burton's "Batman Returns" and "Sleepy Hollow."

An accomplished stage actor, Walken began his career at the age of ten, acting and dancing. He trained to be a dancer at the Professional Children's School in Manhattan, and went on to appear in numerous plays and musicals. He received the Clarence Derwent Award for his performance in the Broadway production of "The Lion in Winter," an Obie for his role in "The Seagull," a Theatre World Award for "The Rose Tattoo," and the 1997 Susan Stein Shiva Award for his work with Joseph Papp's Public Theatre.

In the fall of 1999, Walken co-starred in the stage adaptation of James Joyce's "The Dead." He returned to the stage in the summer of 2001 in the New York Shakespeare Festival revival of Anton Chekhov's "The Seagull," in which he starred with Meryl Streep and Kevin Kline, under the direction of Mike Nichols.

On television, Walken has been one of the most popular hosts of "Saturday Night Live," returning five times to host the show since 1990. In addition, he recently performed an unforgettable dance number in the Spike Jonze-directed music video for Fat Boy Slim's "Weapon of Choice," and wrote and directed the short film "Popcorn Shrimp," which premiered on Showtime in 2001.

Walken's upcoming film work includes Martin Brest's "Gigli," with Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, and Barry Levinson's comedy "Envy," in which he stars with Ben Stiller and Jack Black.
