The Complete Guide To All Things Walken
 
He’s been a dancer, a baker, a lion tamer, an award-winning actor, and a Hollywood legend. But Christopher Walken has never been the subject of a comprehensive biographical reference—until now.
 
Here at last is a complete A-to-Z guide to this one-of-a-kind performer, featuring entries on everything from the Actors Studio (the legendary theatrical workshop where Walken spent eleven years as a janitor) to Zombie Movies (one of Walken’s favorite film genres). Along the way, readers will discover:
 
     •  Acting secrets and behind-the-scenes trivia from each of Walken’s 100+ films—everything
        from Annie Hall to Hairspray and beyond.
     •  Recipes and kitchen tips from “Chef Walken”—including a look at his short-lived TV show,
        Cooking with Chris.
     •  Walken’s music videos for Madonna, Duran Duran, and Fatboy Slim.
     •  The secrets of maintaining his extraordinary hair.
     •  Observations and reminiscences from Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, Tim Burton,
        Woody Allen, Dennis Hopper, and countless others.
 
Plus more bizarre B movies and Saturday Night Live appearances than you can shake a cowbell at! Complete with fascinating trivia and dozens of photographs, Christopher Walken A to Z offers the definitive look at a pop culture phenomenon.
