Christopher Walken is always going to be perceived as a strange guy because he’s earned a reputation for playing strange characters. He is, without a doubt, one of the best character actors of our time, but we say, you’re tripping if you think a guy that’s made a career out of playing weirdos isn’t drawing from somewhere within each time he does. So what’s Walken’s crazy character trait?

He’s obsessed with…cats. The actor has been known to share with others his feline fascination, particularly the tail. He’s even waxed poetic about the myriad expressions cats can convey simply through their tail, and how cool and game-changing it would be if actors had one as well. We’re expecting him to be cast as Blofeld in the next Daniel Craig Bond entry any day now.
