The Collected Wisdom of Frank Abagnale, Sr., by Matt Crowley

Two little mice fell in a bucket of cream. The first mouse quickly gave up and drowned. The second mouse struggled so hard that eventually he turned that cream into butter. He ate all the butter and fought a painful, protracted battle with heart disease for the rest of his life. He would grow to envy that first mouse.


Two little mice fell in a bucket of cream. The first mouse gave up and drowned. The second mouse struggled so hard that he eventually turned that cream into butter and crawled out. If you ask me, that’s essentially the movie Ratatouille right there, but where are my royalty checks?


Attention Food Network, Please Give Christopher Walken a Show Now

This is Christopher Walken hosting a six-minute cooking show for Funny or Die. Accompanied by identically-dressed models Scarlett and Elise and guest Richard Belzer, Walken walks us through making a chicken from the kitchen of his elegant Connecticut home. The video was posted this morning, but I’m shocked that Food Network hasn’t already jumped on it and signed Walken to host his own show.

Christopher Walken to Play Zeus in Strangest Greek God Ensemble Comedy Ever

There have been plenty of adaptations of Greek myths on the big screen, but the upcoming comedy Gods Behaving Badly looks like it will come closest to how the real ancient Greeks imagined their gods. I mean, John Turturro as Hades? Rosie Perez as Persephone? Christopher Walken as Zeus? If the ancient Greeks didn't pray to such an insane cast, it's only because they didn't know any better. Here's the full rundown of gods:

Fun Thing to Buy of the Day: 'Seven Psychopaths'

Last fall's crime-centric black comedy Seven Psychopaths came out this week on DVD and Blu Ray, so why not get both? (Or just one — your choice.) The latest film from writer-director Martin McDonagh (In Bruges) features Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, and Christopher Walken, not to mention at least three other psychopaths because that was only four people and the title says there’s seven.

Christopher Walken's Opinions on Every Topic Imaginable

"There's something dangerous about what's funny. Jarring and disconcerting. There is a connection between funny and scary." These Christopher Walken quotes are a little bit eerie, but also quite informative if you're wondering how he feels about zoos, golf, spaghetti and question marks.

Christopher Walken's Letter to His Fans Is Just Great

This is a letter from Christopher Walken to the members of his fanclub, type written and mailed out in August of '04. It is very charming, especially read in your head in his voice. It makes me wish that I knew about the Online Christopher Walken Fan Club before, as, while I'm not a big club-joiner, this might be one that I'd make an exception for.

Christopher Walken Tells Jon Stewart He Doesn't Have a Cell Phone or a Computer

Christopher Walken went on The Daily Show last night, and it turns out he's kind of weird.

Trade Roundup: Horrible Bosses 2, Paul Rudd, Kristen Wiig, Owen Wilson, Kurt Russell

- Horrible Bosses 2 is a thing that is happening. Luckily, it will probably have the original's writers and directors, and the Bateman-Sudeikis-Day trio is expected to star again. Maybe they'll try to kill each other's kids in this one.

- Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig, and Christopher Walken may star in Freezing People Is Easy, written by Stranger Than Fiction's Zach Helm, directed by Errol Morris and produced by (among others) Ira Glass. Yeah, that's a whole lot of awesome names. The film is the true story of the "television repairman who tried to pioneer the field of cryogenics by freezing humans." Um, if it's [...]
