Christopher Walken poses at The Essex House Hotel in Manhattan on June 4, 2004.
The Academy Award-winning actor has appeared in more than 100 movies and TV shows, including "Annie Hall," "The Deer Hunter," "Pulp Fiction," "Catch Me If You Can," a slew of memorable "Saturday Night Live" skits, and a rhapsodic Fatboy Slim music video.
Born nearly 70 years ago in Queens, New York, Walken trained as a dancer from age 3, and moved from the New York stage to movies in the early '70s in the Sidney Lumet thriller "The Anderson Tapes."
