Christopher Walken Reads 'Where the Wild Things Are'

Christopher Walken has made a career out of playing characters creepy enough to make your skin crawl. So his isn't exactly the first name that comes to mind when envisioning a narrator of a children's book.

Yet here he is (or someone that sounds a lot like him), reading Where the Wild Things Are, the classic 1963 children's book written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. Since Where the Wild Things Are is mostly comprised of illustrations, Walken does take some humorous(ly disturbing) liberties in interpreting the perennially popular book. Enjoy his unique telling in the video below.
