As BroadwayWorld reported yesterday, Oscar-winning actor Christopher Walken, one of the most revered talents of his generation and a veteran of film, television and stage, will portray the iconic Captain Hook in NBC's Dec. 4 telecast of "Peter Pan Live!" With the musical on the horizon, BroadwayWorld wants you to get to know Captain Hook! Check out a collection of his performances below!

The multi-talented Walken - whose iconoclastic career began on the Broadway stage in musicals - has appeared in more than 100 combined feature films and television shows. He won the Academy Award for his riveting role in the Oscar-winning best picture "The Deer Hunter" and was Oscar-nominated for Steven Spielberg's "Catch Me If You Can."

Some of his other many memorable film performances include "Sleepy Hollow," "The Dead Zone," "A View to a Kill," "Pulp Fiction," "Wayne's World," "True Romance" and "Annie Hall." He's also jumped off the screen in a number of film musicals, including "Hairspray," where he performed "(You're) Timeless to Me," and "You Can't Stop the Beat" alongside John Travolta. He danced a show-stopping routine to "Let's Misbehave" in the Steve Martin film "Pennies From Heaven" and is currently seen dancing again in Clint Eastwood's screen version of the smash Broadway hit "Jersey Boys."
