There's a campaign website. Walken 2008. Unfortunately it seems to be a hoax. Or, rather, an elaborate marketing campaign for him playing a senator in a movie.

Disappointing. Although, I don't know what his political views are. But, indeed, he's known for odd and brilliant choices. After I heard that he rehearses his roles by reading only his own lines, in backwards order, without ever reading the other people's lines, I can't help having respect for him. I bet he would come up with an equally crazy, but workable way of being a president.

..I think he's a fascinating figure, a giant in the film world.
He was also a professional dancer before acting and still tries to have at least a small cut in each of his films where he dances.
Don't forget we've already had one president and a governer issued from Hollywood!
And how about Sean Penn as Vice Pres?

To Ming the Mechanic: I just read your comment. Is it really true that it's just a hoax? I seriously believed, even to the point of printing up some flyers to put up on my van. I would vote for him, he's great to look at and at his state of the union speeches, I'd be glued to the tv just to hear that voice. You know, an actor did the job before quite well (Reagan) and we could use one in there like Walken, especially with the looks he can give that say "dont mess with me" yah don't believe we'd have any problems other countries. Walken for President!!!!!It has to be true.
