In the capacity of a great dancer, Christopher Walken has no rival. Therefor, Walken's mashup dance video has gone viral. But one odd fact about the star is that he is dead set against technology.

Take a look at Fatboy Slim’s “Weapon of Choice” video and you will see that Christopher Walken’s dance routine in it is simply superb. Well before he became a leading actor, Walken was a dancer at the Washington Dance Studio. 

Walken has acted in over a hundred movies. Some of the films that feature him in their repertoire include: The Deer Hunter, A View to a Kill, Puss in Boots, Batman Returns, Wayne’s World 2, Pulp Fiction, Sleepy Hollow, America’s Sweethearts, Catch Me If You Can, Gigli, The Stepford Wives and Wedding Crashers. And that is not the end of the list. 

It just goes on and on. And the dance moves he displays in the movies are absolutely impeccable in their style and choreography. The star just can’t stop shaking his lithe body to the groovy music. 

In fact there is a mashup video prepared by HuffPost that shows the famous dance moves of Christopher Walken. This viral mashup video shows Walken's dance moves taken from 57 of his movies from 1977 until 2013. You can view the complete list of 57 movies and the watch video at the end of the post.

But one little known fact about Christopher Walken is his antipathy to all forms of technology. Although he is a grand old actor, and currently has three films lined up for production, he does not own a PC or mobile phone. 

Modernity it seems is something he is least concerned about. He proudly claims that he is a Luddite. The audience was in for a big surprise when in one show Walken was asked about and didn’t know who the hell Lady Gaga was.

"You're talking about the internet, I suppose? I don't have a computer, or a cell phone. I'm a Luddite," Christopher told the British edition of Esquire magazine (via Yahoo Cover Media).

He is absolutely ignorant in matters of the latest news and music. The digital revolution seems to have passed him by without even affecting him in the process. Walken agrees that he lives a slightly isolated and segregated life. 

"I live in a place that's a bit isolated. When you get older you're not aware of all sorts of things, like new music. There's lots of stuff that just doesn't come under my radar."

But that is the sort of lifestyle that he most loves and he is very happy in it. The rhythm and flow of dance is the only lure for Christopher Walken. He is content to boogie-woogie to the fast paced crescendo of lively music.
