Did you know… Cult icon Christopher Walken was born on this day in 1943? Known for his diverse range of roles in classics such as Pulp Fiction and The Deer Hunter, perhaps Walken’s most famous role remains record producer Bruce Dickinson in SNL’s VH1 “More Cowbell” skit. Continuing with the musical theme, Walken famously danced his way through the iconic Weapon of Choice music video, which VH1 anointed Best Video of All Time.
