Walken appeared as the ArchangelGabriel in the first three ''[[Film/TheProphecy Prophecy]]'' movies, as well as his frequent guest-host appearances on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' (seven in all, though six of them [the ones from 1990 to 2003] have his recurring sketch "The Continental" and all six of them have monologues in which Walken sings and dances; the one from the WritersStrike-shortened 33rd season has neither of these), his most notable being ''[[SpellMyNameWithAThe The]]'' Bruce Dickinson in the "[[MemeticMutation More Cowbell]]" sketch and The Continental ([[WeirdAlEffect based on an actual TV character from an obscure 1950s show; but most people wouldn't know that]]). In the United States, films featuring Walken have grossed over $1.8 billion. He has also played the main role in the Shakespeare plays ''Hamlet'', ''Macbeth'', ''Romeo and Juliet'', and even ''Coriolanus''. Famous film roles were Nikanor "Nick" Chevotarevich in ''The Deer Hunter'' (for which he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor) and in ''Film/PulpFiction'', as Captain Koons, a Vietnam War veteran, [[OneSceneWonder which has since become a pop culture icon]]. In fact, his prolific film appearances relate to his own policy of ''never'' turning down film roles unless he's too busy, finding that each and every role is a learning experience.

His distinctive style of speaking, including random pauses, wild enunciation and a tendency to change voice pitch at random, have made clips from his movies subject to a great deal of MemeticMutation, and he's probably the third most-imitated actor out there, after [[SeanConnery Connery]] and [[Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger Ahnold]]. He doesn't actually sound much like most of his impersonators. You're still... imagining!... this article...in his...''illustrious'' voice!
