Walken 2008



It was inevitable, really.

Or should be. For a second, I thought this was real. Then, as part of my current job, I called Walken's people to see what's what. Completely false, they say, he has no intention of running.

Maybe he should. Hell, I'd vote for him.

My favorite Walken performance? Mousehunt. No question. What's yours? (And who should be on his ticket? My vote is for The Rock.)

Jay Mohr. Isn't it obvious?

For me, it's a tie between Blast from the Past and Gigli.

I know, I know. It's people like me...

I'm partial to Batman Returns.

Congratulations on making the front page of the style section! Right next to the section's 3,489th article on the cultural impact of iPods.

You are now tied with Lisa de Moraes and Robert Novak as my fave Post writers and Novak doesn't count since he is syndicated.

Keep up the good work!

And hey -- I didn't realize that this was a Post piece! (Thanks, Russell for pointing it out! And yes, I see you're a boozehound and my image of you as good Puritan boy has been shattered. Also, glazed looks in class are fully explained. Yours, Señor Zak, are not -- however, since I have no bloggable proof that you are the lush of all ages [see here and here], you may still take my adorable, innocent child out for a walk someday. But I digress...) Congrats on the by-lines galore! So when are they picking you up full-time?

I'd like to take this moment to remind the audience that I am J.J. Gittes, private dick, not Dan Zak, dick.

Middento said...

Oops, sorry J.J.

And while I'm cutting your hair, you want to hear a joke?

J.J. said...

Only if it's a joke about a Chinaman

The young Walken photo reminded me of someone, so I stared at it for a second, and came to a troubling conclusion. Young Walken looks like Scarlett Johansson.

OH MY GOSH. You're right! He's a dead ringer... er, she's a dead ring... oh, heck.

I generally love Walken anytime I see him. But, right up there is "The Watch" monologue in Pulp Fiction and his tap dance on the bar in Pennies from Heaven. And some day I'll have to check out that music video where he's dancing all over the place.

Also, the resemblance to Scarlett Johannson is right! They would make an interesting father-daughter combination in some movie some day, he said, arbitrarily casting a non-existing film for ridiculous visual reasons... although, actually, they would make an interesting acting combination...
