Viggo Mortensen Movie Listing

Viggo Mortensen Viggo Mortensen sprang into the public eye with the release of the Lord of the Ring series, but he has been an amazing actor for decades, and has won great praise for many of his performances. It's very intersting to watch the changes in roles he's offered over the years. In the first movies he's often a gangster or a slimy turncoat. That really seems to change when he stars in American Yakuza - and in fact it's a deliberate change there - that he starts out as a 'reformed, lying criminal' but then as the movie goes on, you learn about his actual morals and depth of character. Then POOF in the next movie - Crimson Tide - he's a stand up VERY moral member of the military.
