The Gourmand: Christopher Walken

“I don’t need to be made to look evil. I can do that on my own.”

For a little while in the 1990s, everyone had a Christopher Walken imitation. Walken (born on March 31, 1943) is an American actor, screenwriter, and director who has appeared in more than 100 films and television shows, including The Deer Hunter, Annie Hall, The Prophecy trilogy, The Dogs of War, The Dead Zone, A View to a Kill, True Romance, Pulp Fiction, Catch Me If You Can, et cetera. You get the picture. Walken has received a number of awards and nominations during his career, including winning the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 1978. Walken’s films have grossed more than $1 billion in the United States. He is also an extraordinary dancer, a gourmand and can wear a mustache like few men.
