It seems almost everyone has a Christopher Walken impression they can bust out, and given that actor's distinct tone and cadence, it's a fun one to do. Folks as wide ranging as Bradley Cooper, Kevin Spacey and Jay Mohr have done them, but ranking right up there is Kevin Pollak. And with his latest film "Columbus Circle" hitting stores next week, he's here to tell you about this character, as only Walken himself would say it.

Kevin Pollak Columbus Circle

It seems almost everyone has a Christopher Walken impression they can bust out, and given that actor's distinct tone and cadence, it's a fun one to do. Folks as wide ranging as Bradley Cooper, Kevin Spacey and Jay Mohr have done them, but ranking right up there is Kevin Pollak. And with his latest film "Columbus Circle" hitting stores next week, he's here to tell you about this character, as only Walken himself would say it.

Co-starring Selma Blair, Jason Lee and Giovanni Ribisi, the murder mystery centers on Abigail (Blair), the famous and agoraphoboic daughter of a wealthy industrialist, who in order to avoid the press, has secluded herself in her Manhattan loft for much of her life. Sequestered at the top of the Columbus Circle luxury apartment high-rise, Abigail remained seemingly secure for nearly 20 years until the day her elderly neighbor was suddenly slain. Abigail’s world is now disrupted by strange new neighbors and a police investigation that brings the inquisitive and intrusive NYPD Homicide Detective Frank Giardello (Ribisi) to her door. Peering anxiously through her peephole each day, Abigail soon learns that the dangerous new tenants, Lillian Hart (Amy Smart) and Charles Stratford (Lee), may threaten more than just her privacy. In the film, Pollak plays the eccentric concierge of the building.

"Columbus Circle" arrives on BluRay, DVD and VOD on March 6th. Let Pollak tell you about this role below.
