Viggo, Posterized

21 May 2010 3:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

With the Cormac McCarthy adaptation The Road coming out on DVD on Tuesday (I'm eager to give it another look) I thought we should focus on one of the best actors working: Viggo Mortensen also known as "Aragorn"

Viggo at twenty-two

Aragon's filmography is super odd. Or maybe not. In many professions if you do good work, your career very gradually swells but there's plenty of detours and error along the way as you feel your way up the ladder. I guess it just feels odd in the context of the movies. When we think of leading players in Hollywood don't we tend to think of them in terms of overnight sensations, has beens, or stars that have always been and will always be with us and seem to have arrived fully formed (Streep, Pacino. That type)?

Viggo fits none of those categories but he's very much a leading actor. »

Frail And Injured Hopper Honoured On Hollywood Walk Of Fame

26 March 2010 6:26 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

An ailing Dennis Hopper shocked fans when he turned up to unveil his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday - he was sporting bandages on his head and hand.

The Easy Rider star is suffering from terminal prostate cancer and reportedly has just weeks to live, but he made an appearance outside the Egyptian Theatre, where he was honoured with the 2,403rd star on Hollywood Boulevard.

Viggo Mortensen, Hopper's co-star in The Indian Runner (1991) and Boiling Point (1993), was on hand to pay tribute to the movie legend, who also posed with pal Jack Nicholson.

But it was Hopper's new injuries which drew the most attention - the actor reveals he fell outside his home after confusing a paparazzo for a friend.

He says, "I thought I recognised the voice, so I kept walking and turned around but I didn't see the little ridgeline in the road and I took a terrible fall because I have no muscle.

"So I fell directly on my face, and I had my glasses in my hand. I got pretty screwed up."

Hopper, 73, has been battling other personal issues on top of his health problems - he filed for divorce from his wife Victoria Duffy in January and received a restraining order against her in February, after his doctor insisted her presence in the marital home was "hampering his cancer care". »
