Christopher Walken Is Totally Over Cowbells

Christopher Walken Is Totally Over Cowbells

At this point, “more cowbell” is the last thing Christopher Walken needs. Out of all his award-winning roles, one of the actor’s most iconic is the popular “Saturday Night Live” skit about Blue Oyster Cult’s hit “Don’t Fear The Reaper”… which hasn’t aged as well for the man himself.

During his recent appearance on “The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon,” former cowbell-wielding “SNL” star Will Ferrell dropped the bomb that Walken is fed up with cowbells. In fact, several years after the sketch, Ferrell caught Walken backstage at a theater performance and was told he “ruined” the actor’s life with the sketch.

“‘People during the curtain call bring cowbells and ring them, the other day I went for Italian food and the waiter asked if I wanted more cowbell with my pasta bolognese,’” he recalled Walken saying. “He had a little smile, but I think he was really mad at me.”
