Christopher Walken doesn't mind hitching a ride from strangers.

A pair of lucky fans in New York City saw the actor trying to flag down a cab Tuesday and instead offered him a ride.

The two men posted a photo of the incident online and had nothing but nice things to say about Walken. Not only was he incredibly kind, they say he was very thankful and that they shared a great conversation.

The 70-year-old is known for doing unusual, wacky things around New York City.

In 2010, the actor randomly introduced himself to the new tenants living in his childhood home in Astoria.

Walken has appeared in over 100 films and television shows, but is best known for his roles in "The Deer Hunter," "Pulp Fiction," "Hairspray," and "Catch Me If You Can."
