Chris Craziness: March Madness Round of 64 – Christopher Walken vs. Christy Turlington


In the next leg of Chris Craziness, our final match up of Round 64 sees Christopher Walken square off against Christy Turlington.

Well, we’ve done it. We’ve taken 64 people named Chris (or some variation thereof) and dwindled them down to 32. Of course, we didn’t do it alone. The people voted for their favorites and folks like Kris Jenner, Christina Ricci and Chris Evans advanced to the next round as esteemed actors like Christopher Lee, Christian Slater and Chris Cooper just couldn’t earn enough votes to carry on.

To see all the previous winners, you can head over to our main Chris page and check out the bracket.

Here are the choices for Round 8:

Christopher Walken (Actor)

I’m so pleased to have the opportunity to write about Christopher Walken. I know people know him from various things like Annie Hall or Hairspray — I mean, he’s all over the place, really. But without a doubt, my favorite movie he’s ever done is a film that I treasure so, so dearly and can probably watch on repeat: Biloxi Blues. It’s not the type of film that most people my age have at the top of their list. Plus, Walken already appeared in more than two dozen films before Biloxi Blues came out in 1988. But his role as Sergeant Toomey has stuck with me for a long time. And that alone is more than enough reason to see Walken win the entire tournament. Because when an actor’s one obscure role stands the test of time, they’ve achieved something really special.

Christy Turlington (Model, Humanitarian)

Known as a member of the trinity with Naomi Campbell and Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington was a popular model in the ’80s and ’90s. That makes her sounds like a car, but she was really popular for all her Calvin Klein ads. Plus, she’s been in campaigns for all the big names you can think of, like Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Prada, Versace, etc. However, lately she’s focused a lot of attention on her non-profit, Every Mother Counts. In fact, she made her directorial debut in 2010 with No Woman, No Cry, a documentary on women’s and reproductive health.

But are Turlington’s humanitarian efforts enough to see her advance to the next round?

If you think so, then vote!
