... because yes, I do still love the guy, even if I don't always agree with his politics or watch the films he's chosen to be in post-LOTR. All the things in this article remind me what a terrific guy he is:

Viggo's mother died on Saturday... you can read her obituary here.

My condolences to their entire family.

I am completely not sorry about this.

The McDonald’s french fry is unbelievable. When you bite into it, you think: It’s so tasty, it can’t be real. As soon as it gets cold, it turns to lard and flubble. I mean, have you ever tried to eat a McDonald’s french fry that’s gone cold? That’s one of the circles of hell. The gulf between the warm, fresh, lightly salted McDonald’s french fry and the cold McDonald’s french fry is as great a gulf as any I know. - Viggo Mortensen, Esquire magazine, 22 April 2015 (x)

I really have no idea what this even is, but it makes me laugh.

[livejournal.com profile] babschwi53, you reblogged it at tumblr.... do you know what's going on here besides Biggo, I mean, Viggo being his usual insane self??
cairistiona: (Happy Aragorn)
I was wondering if he'd do it... or if he even knew about it, as "off the grid" as he tends to be. And even so, it's hard to find the video. I found it via someone's tumblr post linking to the instagram post... which without further ado I will give you: http://instagram.com/p/r_Df9vuwjg/?modal=true

And this lady has several photos and vids with Viggo, so be sure to check them all out: http://instagram.com/lifefantastic?modal=true

Now if only Sebastian Stan would get on it... he got challenged way back at the beginning and also recently by Chris Evans. I know this weekend he's at a con in Chicago, charming the socks of all his fans and thereby once more breaking tumblr, but after that... HE NEEDS TO DO THE THING.

Gonna have to wait until tomorrow to get to other LJ stuff... too busy doing stuff with the fam today. Hope you're all having good Sundays!

Happy birthday to Viggo Mortensen!  Not that you'll ever see this little LJ of mine, but thank you for bringing our favorite hero to such memorable life!

And for Viggo fans in general, here's a couple of my fave pics of him... )

I also made this entry, if anyone would like a new Viggo icon:

Didn't win or place but that's cool. I had fun making it. :) Feel free to snag either/both, and please credit.

And I'm posting this about 12 days into it, but...

Viggoness under the cut... )Have a good Saturday, y'all.

Did anyone happen to catch the recent articles... and there seemed a slew of them... quoting Viggo as saying he'd still like to play Aragorn in a bridge movie and hopes it might happen?  Of course, that set off renewed blogospheric speculation that somehow in the additional shooting they might include his back story.

I can't see it happening in "The Desolation of Smaug", and personally, I doubt it will happen even if PJ decides to add some sort of epilogue bridge at the end of the 3rd movie (which would be the most likely place for any sort of cameo). But I am entertained by picturing Viggo all but stalking PJ, calling every hour of the day and night, asking if he's figured out a way to include him. *g* (I mean, obviously the guy still loves Middle-earth; he went to see TH on the opening weekend just like the rest of us geeks. *g*)

Maybe if I get down on one knee and ask nicely, with puppy dog eyes....

The first trailer for Viggo Mortensen's Argentinean movie, Todos Tenemos Un Plan (Everyone Has A Plan), was released today.  The plot basically is about a man who leaves his life to take on the life of his twin brother, who was involved in some very shady business.  I'll have to watch this trailer a ton (what a chore) in order to work out the Spanish (oh, why didn't I keep up with my Spanish after college??  Why???), but even without full understanding, it looks really intriguing... especially this shot--not sure if he's the good brother or the bad brother here, but either way, wow... I would *not* want anyone looking at me like that!!

Watch the trailer here if you're interested.  Two Viggos in some scenes! *flails*

Viggo was knighted back in April, but apparently yesterday he had an audience with HM Queen Margethe II to thank her for it (and maybe officially receive the knighthood?)  I don't read Danish and google translate is worse than useless, but that seems to be what the article states. ([livejournal.com profile] lissas_elves , can you possibly provide a translation/explanation?)

Viggo-works has the article, in Danish, here.  Or see it at a Danish website here.

Either way, knighthood agrees with him, if this photo is any indication!

I think, it being the birthday of the man who brought Aragorn to life on the silver screen, it's appropriate to have an all-out Aragorn droolfest!  *toots party horn*
