BIOGRAPHY:

Nervous-looking lead and supporting actor of the American stage and films. He won an Oscar as best supporting actor for his performance in The Deer Hunter (1978). Seen in mostly supporting roles throughout the 80s and early 90s, often portraying psychologically unstable characters.


TRIVIA:
  • Said in an interview (July 2005) with the German magazine "Der Spiegel" that his father was a German baker from Essen, Germany.
  • In the early 1960s he earned a job as one of three men dancing and singing with 'Andy Warhol' (qv) favorite 'Monique van Vooren' (qv) in her sultry nightclub act.
  • A frequent host of _"Saturday Night Live" (1975)_ (qv), he has also been parodied on the show by 'Jay Mohr' (qv). The youngest ever regular cast member was 'Anthony Michael Hall' (qv), who succeeded him in the television series based on _The Dead Zone (1983)_ (qv), and who, like Walken, has appeared in the Batman film series.
  • Ranked #1 on Tropopkin's Top 25 Most Intriguing People [Issue #100]
  • When he did the Russian roulette scene in _The Deer Hunter (1978)_ (qv), he was remembering being sent to summer camp by his parents, which he hated. He felt betrayed, ostracized, alone - which he felt the character was experiencing at that point in the film.
  • Was assaulted in a street in New York in 1980 when he asked two men to turn down their music. His nose was broken in the incident.
  • He has been a huge fan of 'Elvis Presley' (qv) since his mid-teens.
