Christopher Walken is a fantastic character actor. Even if he's not as famous a name as some others, he is certainly instantly recognizable as a major movie star. Married since 1969, he has never had children. This is one of the reasons he cites for rarely turning down a part!
While this has led to him taking on some interesting and questionable roles, it was probably easy to say yes to his next big project. Walken is set to play the Emperor in the epic sequel to the 2021 hit movie 'Dune.' He joins an all-star ensemble cast with Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya, and Josh Brolin. Other big names appearing in the sequel include Florence Pugh and Austin Butler. Production should start this fall and the much-anticipated movie is already scheduled for release on October 20, 2023.
