Actor Christopher Walken

Walken got his start in the business as a tap-dancing kid and went on to play some of the most menacingly evil characters in film. His films include The Deer Hunter, At Close Range, The Comfort of Strangers, King of New York, The Dead Zone and Annie Hall (in which he played Annie's creepy brother who had an impulse to drive his car into oncoming traffic.) His new film is the comedy The Stepford Wives. He also has a part in the film Man on Fire. (Rebroadcast from Aug. 3, 2000.)
