Viggo Morten-Bale

Things I learned about Viggo Mortenson today.  He speaks  fluent English, Danish, and Spanish, passable Swedish and Norwegian, and some French and Italian.  He’s a photographer and painter, a published poet and singer/musician with 9 CDs in his discography and loves horses.  (He bought his horse from the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the horse from Hidalgo). He is also seemingly generous.  He bought the horse that was Arwen/Liv Tyler’s horse in the Lord of the Rings and gave it to Tyler’s stunt double as a gift.  Oh, and he was married to Exene Cervenka for 11 years.

Now I’m wondering how I missed all that.  To make up for knowing nothing about him, here he is.

  1. I think he speaks Elfish (Elven?) from the Lord of the Rings movies too.

    What was the movie where he played the crazy Russian? I don’t like him in that one…although he played crazy really well.
