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:
  • When hosting _"Saturday Night Live" (1975)_ (qv), he likes to sing during his monologues (which has become a crowd pleasing favorite). So naturally, when co-hosting SNL specials, his introduction song "I'm Walkin, Im 'Talkin" (for the rhyme of his last name) is played.
  • Was considered for the part of Andy in _Dead of Night (1974)_ (qv).
  • In his 35 years in film, he has acted in well over 90 films. He rarely turns down a part, under the belief that making movies (whether they turn out good or bad) is always a rewarding experience.
  • Has an intense dislike of handguns.
  • One of the few hosts of _"Saturday Night Live" (1975)_ (qv) who has hosted enough times to have his own recurring skit ("The Continental").
  • Received Harvard's "Hasty Pudding Man of the Year" award on February 15, 2008.
  • Manages to insert a little dance number into nearly all of his roles, no matter how small, scripted or not.
  • Said in an interview (July 2005) with the German magazine "Der Spiegel" that his father was a German baker from Essen, Germany.
