Jonathan Ross looks like he walked right off a 90210 set.

This has to be the inspiration for Kevin Pollak's recent bit as well. (Still a fan. Not of Jonathan, though.)

Is this where we post our favorite Walken? Because Walken singing Delilah has to be top 3. Shame the video gets out of sync, but even so.

I'm not sure whether to flag that or favorite it.

Kevin Spacey does a surprisingly good Christopher Walken, considering that, fundamentally, nobody can do Christopher Walken.

The way the first little piggie looked at it, this straw house was your birthright. He'd be damned if any wolves gonna put their greasy yellow hands on his boy's birthright, so he hid it, in the one place he knew he could hide something: his ass. Five long years, he wore this straw house up his ass. Then when he died of dysentery, he gave me the straw house. I hid this uncomfortable piece of dried grass and sod up my ass for two years. Then, after seven years, I was sent home to my family. And now, little man, I give the house to you.

Apparently I missed the legendary day of the Dueling Walkens - two of my most awkward co-workers (one an aspiring stand-up comedian) doing their best Christopher Walken impressions. I am assured both were absolutely terrible and it was a marvel to behold.

So, no, nobody can do Christopher Walken, but we would be depriving ourselves if we were to discourage them from trying.

The deliciousness of this is overwhelming. Thank you for posting!

Damn.. I didn't expect to be the first threadshitter.

The Walkenization of Walken has actually kind of sucked, IMO. I was totall on-board when the Walken became a Thing, but Walken hockin' Teh Walken thing? IDGI.

I saw this video so very long ago on Youtube, it's hard to believe this wasn't already posted to Metafilter like 5+ years ago. Damn, I'm an internet hipster.
