display_description 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.
