I think... this could very well be... a hoax.

Hey, at least Walken only plays disturbed homicidal maniacs in the movies. So I'd consider that a step up.

I'd like to think Mr. Walken would have the money to hire a better website designer than that.

I would like to think this signals a yearning on the part of America to return to the days when a movie star is the President, not just a governor.
However, the sincerity and lefty-ness of the site seems to me to be a clear indicator that it is a hoax. Pollies never say anything true: they only say what they think will sell. This is way too honest to be the statement of an actual pollie. But I would like to say, I would vote for him. (He hasn't always been a homicidal maniac. Sometimes he was just a bit depressed.)

Well, that's the end of that. Aside from being a pretty cool actor, I can't imagine why he'd want to run for office. He never really takes any kind of outspoken positions on anything -- or at least hadn't in the past.

He was great in Scotland, PA, by the way . . . and wasn't creepy or homicidal.

Are you sure he wasn't creepy?  He's even creepy on the cover art.

I think Ronald 'Weird Hair' Walken is always creepy. That is what makes him special. Since most people claim presidents are mere puppets anyway an actor is a good a choice as anybody else. Just who of the folks around is the ventriloquist?

I didn't find him creepy, at least. I think it's because the movie itself was creepy and Walken was playing a role fairly low on the creep-o-meter, so it didn't stand out as odd. He was also a vegeterian, which made me happy.

Andy Dick's role in the movie as one of the hippies (witches) was very creepy.

Does anyone else notice a resemblance between him and Larry King?  That could be a competitive edge.

I'm waiting for the Walken-version of this.

Man, that would be frickin' awesome. :pirate
