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:
  • Was named after actor 'Ronald Colman' (qv).
  • The son of a baker.
  • He appeared on _"Saturday Night Live" (1975)_ (qv) doing a Christmas medley called "Walken In A Winter Wonderland" which he dedicated to his mother who hated that he played so many villains.
  • Won an MTV Video Music Award for choreographing his own moves in 'Fatboy Slim' (qv)'s 2001 music video "Weapon Of Choice."
  • 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.
  • Worked briefly as a lion tamer in a circus at age 15.
  • Was considered for the role of Capt. Jack Sparrow in _Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)_ (qv).
  • Was nominated for Broadway's 2000 Tony Award as Best Actor (Musical) for "'James Joyce (I)' (qv)'s The Dead."
