Christopher Walken As Caeser The Exterminator in “Mousehunt”
Being one of the great masters of the art of scene stealing, any one of Christopher Walken’s many roles could easily win him my Scene Stealer award.
I chose this one for the simple fact that, in less then ten minutes of screen time, he manages to out shine the mighty Nathan Lane and present himself as a slapstick fallguy the equal of Lee Evans.
Caesar’s brief skirmish with the wily mouse is instantly memorable and the way in which Walken delivers his dialogue with his trademark pauses and emphasis only helps to cement the kooky exterminator in your mind.
