Viggo Mortensen Might Play This Badass Role In Tarantino's The Hateful Eight

Viggo Mortensen Has Some Serious Problems With The 2nd And 3rd Lord Of The Rings Movies

If you asked 100 Star Wars fans what the best of the movies is, I suspect 90 would probably say The Empire Strikes Back. That’s a hell of a lot closer to a consensus than you would get for Lord Of The Rings, but to actor Viggo Mortensen, it’s not even really close. For him, The Fellowship Of The Ring is the clear choice.

Viggo Mortensen Takes On Two Roles In First Trailer For Everybody Has A Plan

Viggo Mortensen clearly has many talents as an actor, but one you may not know about is his linguistic skills. The star is fluent in English, Spanish, Danish, and French, and can speak some Swedish and Norwegian (and we've all seen him talk in Elvish too).

Viggo Mortensen Wanted To Play General Zod In Zack Snyder's Superman?

While I know a lot of people won't like to hear that General Zod is the villain of the new Superman movie and would prefer Brainiac or Doomsday, Mortensen could be an interesting bit of casting.
