Cooking With Christopher Walken: 'Man Makes Chicken With Pears'
If you liked Cooking With Werner, you'll love this one, in which Christopher Walken cooks chicken with pears. Unlike the Werner Herzog skit, this video actually features Walken himself. No dancing, no sudden violence: just a man thoughtfully preparing chicken and roasted pears. Of course YouTube is littered with Walken clips, Walken-impersonating having become an actual art form. (A YouTube name search for Walken yielded 3,360 results; the exact same number, oddly, as Gordon Ramsay.) Anyway, check out the man's cooking skills, which are impressive, if somewhat ideosyncratic. When Rachael Ray salts a chicken, it does not achieve the same effect, certainly not visually.
