Any Walken poll that doesn't include his appearance in Disney's "The Country Bears" just cannot be considered valid, IMHO.

He ruled them all. But True Romance was the best.

I like him as Johnny Smith in The Dead Zone.

I can't believe I'm the first one to say this:
Spoiler:
You know what this poll needs? More cowbell!


Honk!

His performance in Batman Returns always holds a special place in my heart, since that was the movie that introduced me to Mr. Walken.

His Pulp Fiction and True Romance ones are classics.

Hard to pick between those 3.

Can't think of a bad one. Even the Denver When You're Dead bits were fantastic.

Great performances in Biloxi Blues and At Close Range as well.

and

Mouse Hunt, Sleepy Hollow, but my favorite would have to be when he played half eggplant.

I refuse to participate in this poll. It's like choosing which of your children you love the most, or which cast member of Friends you'd most like to torture.

I voted for The Deer Hunter (I'll never forget his last scene in that one) but he was great in The Dead Zone and a little-known film called The Opportunists. The man gets better with age.

I was always very fond of the movie Brainstorm, and his performance in it.

Charlie Barrett in Suicide Kings. He spends most of the movie tied to a chair a still manages to be menacing.

This is a horrible poll!

King of New York
Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead
At Close Range


I'd put those 3 above or at least as good as any in the poll.

I voted for Captain Koons but was torn between that and True Romance.

I too think this poll unfair! You need an option to vote for all of his performances!

I see "A View To A Kill" killing the competition.

Love all his performances, but went with "True Romance".

BTW, you mispelled Twikoff.
