Christopher Walken book A to Z out this week

On Wednesday, Oct. 15, Christopher Walken A to Z: The Man, The Movies, The Legend hits shelves. And it's a whopper.

Robert Schnakenberg penned the 288-page book, which covers everything from the actor's dancing skills, to his cooking abilities, to his SNL appearances, to quotes from his friends and colleagues on his work, and even a special section on "Walkenisms."

Excited yet? Good news, then! Pop Candy has posted the introduction to the book, along with two entries. One is about the comedian's connection to Biggie Smalls; the other is about his "Cowbell" SNL sketch.
