With his unusual speech pattern (let's call it offbeat), Christopher Walken is probably one of the most challenging celebrities to impersonate. So why do so many people feel the need to do it? He won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for The Deer Hunter, after all. That's right, The Deer Hunter! OK for my money the best Walken impersonation would have to go to Kevin Spacey. If you haven't seen his hilarious Saturday Night Live sketch in which he auditions for the role of Hans Solo as Christopher Walken, then it's definitely worth checking out. For more great Walken impersonations, head down to the Dragonfly this weekend for All About Walken—a hilarious sketch comedy/improvisational/multimedia stage event that stars seven different actors giving their best impersonations of the Oscar winner. The show has been running strong in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles since 2006, and includes plenty of different plot twists and other oddball scenarios so that no one show is the same. Poor Christopher Walken, all… he wanted to do… was act! Hmm, looks like my impression still needs a little work.
