The creepiest actor in Hollywood, Christopher Walken, has been cast in the Jason Bateman helmed THE FAMILY FANG. Bateman will star with Nicole Kidman as siblings who grew up in a performance artist family and learn the hard way about the differences between real life and art when their parents inexplicably disappear. Walken will play their father Caleb Fang.
Walken is the actor who haunted your childhood dreams through roles in “Sleepy Hollow,” his Oscar winning turn in “The Deer Hunter,” and, more recently, “Seven Psychopaths.” You may remember that he was also briefly married to John Travolta in “Hairspray.” Up next for Walken are roles in Clint Eastwood’s big screen adaptation of “Jersey Boys” and in the aptly named “Fangs of War,” a reimagining of Bram Stoker’s classic Dracula.
Walken is repped by ICM.
