FROM Christopher Walken
Keener and Walken on Acting Catherine Keener and Christopher Walken star alongside Philip Seymour Hoffman in the new movie, A Late Quartet . It's the kind of indie, character-driven piece that can fly below the radar in these crowded movie season. For Walken it's a role he rarely plays -- the benevolent father figure to a string quartet. The Business producer Darby Maloney caught up with Walken and Keener when the film debuted at the Toronto Film Festival.

At one point Keener asks Walken if he'd ever consider being a director. His answer is pure Walken.
