Sure, Christopher Walken is one of his generation’s most versatile thespians, with a distinctive speaking voice that could make a wolverine purr. But, as any true Walken disciple knows, the man’s greatest strength is his smooth-as-silk dancing.
Whether he’s gracefully frolicking around in a music video (the Spike Jonze-directed clip for Fatboy Slim’s “Weapon of Choice”) or randomly hamming it up on the big screen (as he did in classics like Pulp Fiction, The Deer Hunter and the undisputed comedy masterpiece Wayne’s World 2), Walken’s got serious skills. Now, Huffington Post has put the actor’s unique talents on display, compiling his finest dance stylings in the almost five-minute supercut of fabulous moves.
Incredibly, Walken (who once trained at the Washington Dance Studio) has been grooving on-screen basically his entire career: The clip covers nearly four decades of cinema – from 1977’s Roseland to 2013’s The Power of Few. It’s a jaw-dropping display, full of jazz-hands and spin moves and jigs, set to the soundtrack of C&C Music Factory’s 1990 smash “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)” (along with a few Walken “BOOM!”s and “WHOA!”s, which certainly add to the flair).
There’s not much else to say. Just sit back, relax and have your Walken-loving mind blown.
