Funny Vintage Photos of Christopher Walken Clowning Around With His Brother in 1955

In 1955, 12-year-old Christopher Walken dressed as a clown. Back then the child star was called Ronald Walken, one of a family of child actors with his brothers Glenn and Ken.

He made his acting debut as Ronald Walken in the 1953 NBC sitcom Wonderful John Acton, the story of an Irish-American family living in the Ohio River Valley, Kentucky, in 1919. The show, which ran for 13 episodes, starred Walken as 12-year-old Kevin acting out the reminiscences of his adult self who narrates the story each week.

In 1964, Ronald changed his first name to Christopher and went on to star in notable films including The Deer Hunter (1978),  The Dead Zone (1983), Batman Returns (1992), True Romance (1993), Pulp Fiction (1994), Sleepy Hollow (1999) and Catch Me If You Can (2002).
