  • ♪ >> STEPHEN: WELCOME BACK.

  • JOINING ME NOW IS AN ACADEMY AWARD-WINNING ACTOR YOU KNOW

  • FROM "THE DEER HUNTER," "PULP FICTION," AND "CATCH ME IF YOU

  • CAN."

  • HIS NEW FILM IS "WILD MOUNTAIN THYME."

  • PLEASE WELCOME, CHRISTOPHER WALKEN!

  • CHRISTOPHER WALKEN, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE!

  • >> HI, STEPHEN.

  • GOOD THE SEE YOU.

  • >> Stephen: YOU KNOW, WE HAVE MET BEFORE, BRIEFLY, A FEW YEARS

  • AGO, BUT I NEVER HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO INTERVIEW YOU,

  • AND NOW I GET TO INTERVIEW YOU OVER ZOOM, WHICH I UNDERSTAND IS

  • A PARTICULAR RARITY BECAUSE IS IT TRUE YOU HAVE NEVER OWNED A

  • COMPUTER OR A CELL PHONE?

  • >> YEAH, SOMEBODY HAD TO COME AND SET THIS UP BECAUSE I DON'T

  • HAVE A CELL PHONE OR A COMPUTER.

  • >> Stephen: AND WHY DON'T YOU HAVE ONE?

  • ARE YOU MORALLY, PHILOSOPHICALLY, EMOTIONALLY

  • OPPOSED?

  • >> NO, NO.

  • I JUST GOT TO IT TOO LATE.

  • YOU KNOW, I THINK I'M RIGHT AT A CERTAIN AGE WHERE IT JUST PASSED

  • ME BY, AND I NEVER GOT INVOLVED IN IT BECAUSE IT WOULD BE

  • STRANGE TO HAVE, YOU KNOW, ANY TEN-YEAR-OLD BE MUCH BETTER AT

  • IT THAN I AM.

  • SO SO THE OTHER THING IS, CELL PHONES IS A BIT LIKE A WATCH, IF

  • YOU NEED IT, SOMEBODY HAS ONE.

  • PEOPLE ARE GOOD ABOUT LETTING ME BORROW THINGS.

  • >> Stephen: YOU'VE NEVER E-MAILED OR TEXTED.

  • >> NO.

  • >> Stephen: YOU'VE NEVER BEEN ON TWITTER?

  • >> NO, I HAVEN'T.

  • SOMETIMES ON A MOVIE THEY'LL GIVE ME A CELL PHONE, BUT IT'S

  • MORE SO THAT THEY CAN FIND ME.

  • >> Stephen: IT'S LIKE A TRACKING COLLAR?

  • >> A TRACKING COLLAR.

  • >> Stephen: A TAG LIKE JACQUES COUSTEAU, WE'RE GOING TO TRACK

  • YOUR MIGRATION?

  • >> AND IF I WANT TO USE IT, SOMEBODY HAS TO DIAL IT FOR ME,

  • THAT KIND OF THING.

  • >> Stephen: ARE WE CATCHING YOUT AT HOPEFUL RIGHT NOW?

  • >> YEAH.

  • I'M IN CONNECTICUT.

  • >> Stephen: WHAT ELSE SOMETHING PEOPLE MIGHT NOT

  • EXPECT TO FIND IN CHRISTOPHER WALKEN'S HOME?

  • >> WELL, I HAVE A SMALL ROOM WHERE I KEEP, YOU KNOW,

  • MEMORABILIA AND MEMENTOS AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

  • I THOUGHT YOU MIGHT BE INTERESTED, AND I HAVE MOHAMED

  • ALI -- MOHAMED ALI, IN THE EARLY '70s, HIS TITLE WAS TAKEN

  • AWAY.

  • >> Stephen: SURE.

  • PEOPLE DON'T KNOW IT, BUT HE DID OTHER THINGS.

  • HE APPEARED IN A BROADWAY SHOW, AND HE HAD KIND OF AN ACT WHERE

  • HE TOURED, AND I WAS WORKING IN A THEATER IN CANADA, AND HE CAME

  • THROUGH TOWN WITH HIS SHOW, AND HE LEFT HIS BOXING TRUNKS TO BE

  • AUCTIONED FOR CHARITY FOR THE THEATER, AND I WENT AND GOT THEM

  • AND I BROUGHT THEM FOR YOU TO SEE.

  • >> Stephen: SO YOU HAVE MOHAMED ALI'S BOXING TRUNKS FROM

  • THE PERIOD OF TIME THAT HE WASN'T ALLOWED TO BOX BECAUSE HE

  • WAS A CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTOR TO VIETNAM.

  • >> YES, AND HE INSCRIBED THEM MOHAMED ALI 1971, THE REAL

  • CHAMP.

  • >> Stephen: CAN I SEE?

  • DO YOU HAVE THEM?

  • >> SURE.

  • >> Stephen: (LAUGHING) THAT'S FANTASTIC!

  • HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TEMPTED TO PUT THEM ON?

  • >> NO.

  • WHERE AM I?

  • ( LAUGHTER ) NO.

  • WHEN I GOT THEM, THEY WERE -- I HAD THEM FRAMED, AND THEY HAVE

  • BEEN THERE EVER SINCE.

  • >> Stephen: DID YOU EVER MEET ALI?

  • >> I DID.

  • I SAT NEXT TO HIM ONCE AT A MOVIE PREMIERE, AND I COULDN'T

  • BELIEVE I WAS SITTING NEXT TO HIM.

  • AND THEN, WHEN IT WAS OVER, PEOPLE WERE KIND OF STANDING

  • AROUND, AND HE SAID TO ME, DO YOU BOX?

  • AND I SAID, NO, NOT AT ALL.

  • AND HE SAID, PRETTY BOY.

  • THAT'S A LONG TIME AGO, YOU KNOW.

  • >> Stephen: NOW, HE ACCUSED YOU OF BEING A PRETTY BOY?

  • >> YEAH, HE SAID I WAS A PRETTY BOY.

  • >> Stephen: I THOUGHT ONE OF HIS GREAT CLAIMS WAS THAT I'M SO

  • PRETTY.

  • >> YEAH, HE WAS -- BUT MAYBE IT WAS A COMPLIMENT, I DON'T KNOW.

  • >> Stephen: TAKE IT AS SUCH.

  • THE NEW FILM IS CALLED "WILD MOUNTAIN THYME."

  • I BELIEVE WE HAVE A CLIP.

  • DO YOU KNOWT WHAT WE'RE ABOUT TO SEE?

  • >> I THINK IT'S SOMETHING WITH MY SON JAMIE DORNIN AND HIS

  • INHERITANCE.

  • >> Stephen: OKAY, JIM?

  • I DON'T SEE A CLEAR PATH FROM WHERE TO WHERE.

  • >> FROM ME TO YOU.

  • STOP.

  • IT HAS TO BE SAID.

  • YOUR FACE IS NOT RIGHT.

  • YOU COME UP FROM SOME OTHER PEOPLE.

  • YOU'RE MORE KELLY THAN RILEY.

  • >> IT'S TRUE, YOU'RE A KELLY IN THE FACE.

  • >> IN MY FACE.

  • HE LIKES TO FISH.

  • AS THE KELLIES, IT'S WELL KNOWN.

  • JOHN KELLY, HE WAS A FISH.

  • >> MY NAME IS RILEY.

  • I'M A RILEY.

  • >> NO, YOU'RE A KELLY.

  • YOU TAKE AFTER JOHN KELLY AND THAT MAN WAS MAD AS THE FULL

  • MOON.

  • DROWNED HIMSELF IN THE ROYAL CANAL.

  • >> E FELL IN.

  • HAD A ROCK TIED TO HIS NECK!

  • >> Stephen: DID YOU SHOOT THIS IN IRELAND, CHRISTOPHER?

  • >> YES.

  • >> Stephen: WHERE?

  • WHERE IN IRELAND?

  • >> WELL, A FEW HOURS OUTSIDE OF DUBLIN IN THIS BEAUTIFUL FARM

  • COUNTRY, AND I HADN'T, IN MY LIFE, BEEN TO IRELAND, AND I

  • DON'T KNOW IF YOU HAVE BEEN THERE, BUT IT REALLY IS

  • BEAUTIFUL.

  • >> Stephen: I HAVE.

  • YEAH.

  • IT WAS EVERYTHING THEY SAY, AND WHERE WE STAYED WAS AN OLD

  • ESTATE, AND THEY HAD A ROOKERY WHERE THEY RAISED THE HAWKS AND

  • OWLS AND FAULKENS, AND THE WHOLE THING WAS A LITTLE BIT MEDIEVAL.

  • >> Stephen: WAS IT APPEALING TO YOU, THE MEDIEVAL QUALITY OF

  • IT?

  • BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T HAVE PHONES OR COMPUTERS BACK IN THE

  • MEDIEVAL TIMES EITHER.

  • >> NO, NO, REALLY, I'D LIKE TO GO BACK.

  • >> Stephen: EXCEPT THE HYGIENE, I NEED DENTISTS.

  • I WOULD LOVE TO GO BACK TO THE MIDDLE AGES, TOO, BUT I LIKE

  • PENICILLIN AND DENTISTS.

  • >> THEY HAD LOTS OF THAT.

  • >> Stephen: OH, YOU MEAN GO BACK TO IRELAND?

  • I THOUGHT YOU MEANT GO BACK TO THE MIDDLE AGES THERE.

  • >> NO, IRELAND.

  • I DON'T MEAN THE MIDDLE AGES.

  • >> Stephen: I WOULD LOVE TO GO BACK TO IRELAND, TOO.

  • NOW W "WILD MOUNTAIN THYME" IS ALSO, CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG,

  • IT'S ANT ENDURING LOVE, A SUBJECT WITH WHICH YOU ARE

  • FAMILIAR.

  • MY WIFE WILL BE THRILLED TO KNOW OF YOUR EXAMPLE.

  • YOU HAVE BEEN MARRIED TO YOUR WIFE GEORGEANNE FOR 51 YEARS.

  • WHAT DO YOU THINK THE SECRET IS TO AN ENDURING MARRIAGE?

  • >> WELL, LIKE A LOT OF THINGS IN MY LIFE, I THINK THAT THERE'S A

  • BIG ELEMENT OF LUCK, YOU KNOW, KNOCK WOOD.

  • BUT, YOU KNOW, THAT SORT OF THING IS CERTAIN DEPUTY, IT'S

  • COPESETIC.

  • YOU KNOW, YOU JUST GET LUCKY SOMETIMES AND, YOU KNOW, THE

  • IDEA THAT YOUR WIFE MAY HAVE WALKED INTO THE ROOM WHEN YOU

  • WERE LOOKING WRONG WAY AND YOU NEVER MET, THOSE THINGS ARE

  • POSSIBLE.

  • I THINK IT HELPS IF BOTH PEOPLE ARE EASY TO GET ALONG WITH, AND,

  • OF COURSE, FRIENDSHIP, BEING FRIENDS IS VERY IMPORTANT, YOU

  • KNOW.

  • LIKING PEOPLE THAT YOU'RE WITH.

  • >> Stephen: ARE YOU EASY TO GET ALONG WITH, CHRISTOPHER?

  • >> YEAH.

  • >> Stephen: DO YOU THINK OF YOURSELF AS EASY GOING?

  • >> YES.

  • >> Stephen: DO YOU THINK THAT PEOPLE WHO ARE ACTUALLY EASY

  • GOING THINK OF THEMSELVES AS EASY GOING?

  • OR DO YOU THINK THAT'S A WARNING THAT MAYBE YOU'RE NOT EASY GOING

  • BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT A HIGH OPINION OF YOUR EASY GOING-NESS?

  • >> NO, I THINK SOME PEOPLE ARE MISTAKEN ABOUT THAT, BUT I'M

  • NOT.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) >> Stephen: WELL, CHRISTOPHER,

  • THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE.

  • SO NICE TO TALK TO YOU.

  • >> THANK YOU, STEPHEN.

  • IT'S A PLEASURE TO SEE YOU.

  • >> Stephen: "WILD MOUNTAIN THYME" IS OUT NOW.

  • CHRISTOPHER WALKEN, EVERYBODY.

  • WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH CHANCE THE RAPPER.
