Hilarious! Christopher Walken Reads "Where The Wild Things Are" (Video)

Christopher Walken Reads "Where the Wild Things Are"

If you’re wild about celebrities reading children’s books, then give this one a listen: Christopher Walken reads “Where The Wild Things Are” in this hilarious video.

When Walken (well, someone doing an excellent impersonation, anyway) doesn’t have text to read, he improvises a bit about what’s going on in the illustrations.

There’s a lot of ground to cover, but Christopher Walken’s interpretation of the story is too funny, with gems like:

“And there’s a bear strung up… I assume murdered, maybe a suicide….”

“I don’t think he’s really gonna eat him [the dog]… but, you know, kids are jerks.”

“There are bugs on the earth… oh wait they’re plants…with bug ears. I don’t know why they have bug ears.”

“The kid is kind of a jerk. I think that’s the point you’re supposed to get.”

It’s definitely worth a listen all the way through. I’d love to hear the real Christopher Walken read “Where The Wild Things Are” – I wonder if he would be as funny as this guy.
