Christopher Walken Is Lawyering Up Natalie Wood Case

Christopher Walken, who was on the boat the night the West Side Story actress died, has hired a lawyer in response to the new inquiry into the case, which was originally ruled an accidental drowning.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Oscar winner is being represented by Mathew Rosengart, a former federal prosecutor who is now a litigation specialist with a Los Angeles law firm. Walken was the only other guest on "Splendour," the yacht Robert Wagner and his wife Natalie Wood Wagner had taken out to Catalina Island that Thanksgiving weekend in 1981.

Despite the move, sources said that the "Catch Me If You Can" actor was not considered to be a suspect by Los Angeles Sheriff's Department investigators. Los Angeles County Sheriff's Lt. John Corina said Friday that several sources had come forward with new information that warranted "another look at the case," but that Wagner is not a suspect in the death.
