Let me shift gears to bring up something that I know is a much more serious endeavor for you: Your "Cooking with Christopher Walken" show.
The one with Richard Belzer? (laughs) It was earlier in the summer and Will Ferrell has this company "Funny or Die" and I know him a little bit. They called and I had cooked a chicken at my house and somebody videoed it and put it on YouTube, and I think you can still punch that up, and I think it came from that. And then I called Richard Belzer, who is a friend of mine, and I said there’s no script, no preparation, basically all we do is show up. And the idea is we'll just buy a chicken and cook it and eat it, and they made some additions like having the girls there. It was very improptu, very extremely improvised. We never discussed anything we were gonna do.
You said before you didn’t have any hobbies but I would have listed cooking among them until you said that.
I don't know if you'd call cooking a hobby. I'm not sure that you eat your hobby, but I suppose it could be called a hobby, yeah. It's also more just a way of life.
You've got a lot of stuff in the pipeline, from the Fisher Stevens film to "Power of the Few" and your upcoming role as Zeus. Is an endgame at this point in your career, or are you still just taking things as they come?
I take things as they come. I hope that I can do a play once in a while, and continue to get different and good parts in movies. As I get older, I don't feel old. Thirty years ago I would've thought where I am now is old, but then I think about actors like Christopher Plummer and Michael Caine and these guys just keep going. That’s what I'd like to do: Take care of myself and live a long time and continue to be an actor until I drop.
And keep cooking.
I hope so.
