I have admittedly been in a bit of a funk lately. The holidays seem to be approaching at the speed of the new Maglev train in Japan and I have been trying to avoid the thought of them.
And then I saw it…..the ad for the live production of Peter Pan starring none other than Christopher Walken as Captain Hook.
If you are a fan of Walken, as I am, you know how great he is to watch and to imitate. His disconnected thoughts and speech patterns make for great entertainment. I am not dismissing his awesome talent as an actor or a dancer, but Mr. Walken does make great fodder for TV show hosts and actors to share their impressions of him.
or this one…
(wait for 1:51 on this one)
I’m sure the performance will be great. He is, after all, a professional and a very talented one at that. But this is live TV. There is no room for error. There will be no Director yelling “cut” and doing a retake of the scene. I’m sure it will be flawless. But in the back of my mind, I will be longing for that moment….that one little hiccup that will create a slight deviation in the programming and where the nuance of Christopher Walken will fill the void.
The minutes are ticking by slowly as I wait for the fun to begin. Live television…Christopher Walken…..these are my Pennies from Heaven.
I love the modern take on Peter Pan as seen in this exclusive clip!
Classic!! He is a celeb I would love to have dinner with.
That could be entertaining! I hope it lifts your spirits 🙂
Love Christopher Walken. If any of your readers haven’t seen “Blast from the Past,” watch it — it will lift your spirits if the holidays get you down.
Thanks….I’ll be sure to check it out.
