I cannot believe nobody has mentioned this yet… Christopher Walken has apparently entered the presidential race to be elected for 2008. So far he does not have a publically available platform (he’s actually writing it himself), but his support of stem cell research, a desire to put this country back on track while acknowledging its screwed up right now. It should also be worth mentioning he belongs to neither of the two major parties, nor does he have any plans for allying with any of them!
Completely untrustworthy anecdote relayed by FoaF :
On the set of Prophecy 3, one of the scenes is in a park with a fountain. At the shoot, lunch is called, and the crew repair to the catering facilities, with the exception of Walken. He walks the other way, back to the fountain, stripping to his underwear and climbing in. He spends the whole lunchbreak submerged in the water except for the top of his head around eye-level, with short breathing breaks. At the end of the break, the crew return to the set, Walken gets out of the fountain and is passed a robe by one of the crew, who asks what he was doing. He stares into the middle-distance and says “For lunch, I was a crocodile”.
