When Was the Last Time You Saw a Celebrity in Washington State?
Imagine you're eating a burger or grabbing an ice cream cone and you lock eyes with a celebrity! That just happened in East Wenatchee!
Who Was the Celebrity?
According to Richard E, this is what went down
In my 41 years, I’ve seen a lot of interesting things. However, I think what I saw yesterday might be on the top of the list.As I sat down at my table at Bobs Burgers in East Wenatchee, I noticed a group of people seated across from me. There was an older, but nice looking man sitting right in the middle. I thought to myself “where do I know him from?”. I looked at him again & the man smiled at me knowing that I knew he looked familiar. It took me about 5 minutes before it dawned on me. I then picked up my phone and did a Google search. When I saw the results, I about fell out of my chair.Why Christopher Walken was in East Wenatchee is beyond me. As I left, I briefly chatted with him & the small group he was with. I didn’t ask him his name, but he knew that I knew who he was.So, I guess you can say that I’ve met and talked to a celebrity.
I asked Richard what his favorite movie role of Christopher's is and he said, "Hmm, that’s a tough one. Maybe A View To A Kill? James Bond movie."
Ahhh, how cool! If you aren't familiar with this actor, here are a few more of his roles
What Movies Has Christopher Walken Been In?
- Catch Me If You Can - He plays the Dad
- Balls of Fury - Head Bad Guy
- Wedding Crashers - Politician and Father

The list goes on and on for movie roles, and an honorable mention must be given to the SNL skit with Will Ferril where Christopher Walken keeps telling the band, "I think it needs more cowbell!"
I can only imagine what it was like meeting the twinkling gaze of this incredible actor...let alone getting to chitchat with him and his party for a bit! What a cool moment!
