The actor of your choice?
I like both, but have to go with Walken.

Christopher Walken has turned into sort of a self-parody -- he knows he just has to appear in a movie, usually as an over-the-top bad guy, and he'll get laughs. And there's nothing wrong with that. But Morgan Freeman gives any movie he's in a higher level of credibility, so he gets my vote. Plus his voice is awesome.

I agree that Christopher Walken is awesome in his own little box but Morgan Freeman is the better actor.

Both are great but Morgan being in every other movie annoys me.  I pick Walken.

I'll go with Walken, I like both but...Morgan Freeman's constant voice over appearances in commercials has become a negative aspect, enough to ruin his chances in this poll for me.

You're not paying attention. In this century alone...

- Freeman's appeared in 32 movies. It's certainly a lot. I've seen 10 of them.

- Walken's appeared in 43 movies. However, I've seen just 1. It's because he'll do anything...and that's fine. But it's usually fluff like Joe Dirt parts 1 and 2, Balls of Fury, and Nine Lives. Even Freeman's London Has Fallen and Ben-Hur don't look as bad as those. And that's saying a lot.

Still, they're both great but I'm picking Freeman.

Both are great actors.
And although I probably like Morgan a little better I voted walked

Why?

His dance in that fat boy slim video ( I think that's who it was)
That was the most awesome thing ever

I just saw Jungle Book and thought Walken was a complete casting mistake for King Louie.  Freeman would have been better, so he gets my vote.

I like both, but Walken's performance in The Deer Hunter is untouchable ... The Dead Zone and Annie Hall make this an easy one for me

I was thinking specifically of Deer Hunter (Annie Hall was excellent of course too) and he almost won. But overall, I had to go with Freeman.

I feel that Walken and DeNiro have really become lampoons of themselves. Sure, their greatest work is superb but I hate to see these joke roles that they've been taking over the last several years. I can't even remember the last good movie DeNiro has been in
