THE RUNDOWN

CHRISTOPHER WALKEN (Hatcher) is a multitalented actor who won the Academy Award® for Best Supporting Actor in Michael Cimino's The Deer Hunter and recently received another Academy Award® nomination for his supporting role in Steven Spielberg's Catch Me If You Can with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks. He won the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Award (BAFTA) and the Screen Actors Guild Award for this performance. He will next star opposite Denzel Washington in Tony Scott's Man on Fire; Frank Oz's updated The Stepford Wives, opposite Nicole Kidman and Glenn Close; and with Ben Stiller and Jack Black in Barry Levinson's Envy

In the summer of 2001, Walken co-starred in the New York Shakespeare Festival revival of Anton Chekhov's The Seagull, directed by Mike Nichols and also starring Meryl Streep. Walken also appeared in an award-winning dance performance in a music video directed by Spike Jonze for "Weapons of Choice” by Fat Boy Slim. 

Walken's film career rocketed after his unforgettable role as Diane Keaton's brother in Woody Allen's Academy Award®-winning film Annie Hall. The Deer Hunter followed the next year. He has since built up a filmography of some 50 films, including Neil Simon's Biloxi Blues, At Close Range, Pennies From Heaven, Heaven's Gate, King of New York and Blast from the Past

In more recent years Walken has become an icon to legions of fans who know him from his performances in Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow, John Turturro's Illuminata, Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction and Tony Scott's True Romance

Walken began acting and dancing at the age of 10. Walken has a virtual cult following based on his outrageously funny performances hosting Saturday Night Live, immortalizing such sidesplitting characters as "The Continental,” a playboy who practically holds his dates hostage in his ludicrous attempts to wine and dine them.
