Well, he played Aragorn, the heir of Gondor recently.

And some Oscar buzz has been going around about him. Actually I meant to ask what do you think of his performance in the movie? Did you see him as Aragorn? Me not that much - I prefered Strider from the Fellowship. And I wait for the king in Return of the King.

What is your opinion on Aragorn and the way he portrayed it? Was he belevable enough? And did the presence of Arwen helped his character or just spoiled the image he was recreating?

I loved him in The Two Towers, though I think the cast member that desrves the hottness, best action sequences goes to Orlando

Well, I don't know if he was looking so great... I was more worried if heis performance was of class. I can't judge. I mean, didn't you expect a little deeper interpretation of Aragorn? Did he do well?

As for the action - he did well, he definitely was in centre, but was he dramatic enough? As we know in what situation is he, and how hard his life was - it was all so sad to me. maybe I wanted him to be a little more emotional...

As for the looks, I don't know, but this is my favourite picture of Aragorn:

Probably because it shows his face close, and we may wonder what is he thinking.


But this one with Arwen is really not that bad also, he seems contemplated:

What do you think of these?

No, it wasn't explained in the movie, but they called him Strider and then it became clear that his name is Aragorn. My favourite name is The Heir of Gondor - cause it shows that he is the king, probably. I don't know, shows the status?

Hey the voice is probably some feature of his Danish origin. I guess. I love the extended version, too, it had more scenes, more stuff (more things on the additional discs! :wub: )

L., we know this from the book - people like him are known as Striders, his real name is Aragorn, but he doesn't use it - they may recognize him. And they could really killl him. And he also has other names, but I don't inform you for them right now! :)

Aragorn, Strider, Heir of Isildur, Son of Arathorn the boy has like a bazilloin different names!I could name more but I won't(ok i will King of all Men, ok ill stop) Watever you want to call him, the guy is hot. I like that "ruggedness" he has about him in the movie. I love the extended too. He is soo funny. My fav is proly when he is talking about Frodos extra(i forgot his have!) and when they are in the boats and frodos extras is telling him that if the boat starts going down to save himself because he cant swim. (ok mabye its not a s funny being exlpained over the internet but its soo funny!) Yeah, and Viggo is sooo talented!!!! HE has done lots of movies and he has 2 jazz music CD's out, 2 books of poetry(one more on the way!), He speaks 3 different languges(English, Spanish, and Dutch) HE has a buissness degree. Who could ask for more!? I think that its coo ltaht he is a singel parent, I mean you dont see very may men out here taking care of their kids by themselvs.(not that is doesn't happen, but very rarly) Well I'm going to stop now.Heheh take care ppl!!!! BYE!!!
Adios!!! :rolleyes: :D :P :)

Motorcycle? Hm, I really don't know. This should be sth rare. Have you seen it, or you just suppose there is such? I may check.


Hey, and for the girl, who wrote so much - I liked him in the movie "Perfect Murder" a lot. Do you know the drawings on the wall were his own? Pretty interesting!

A true renaissance(did i spell that right?) man. He is soo cool. I dont know where you could find a pic of him on a bike. But I do remember seeing one, or mabye i dreamed it. Sometimes I dream things and later I can't tell if it was really or just a dream, its really freaky because I rember it so clearly. (yeah ok im a freak! :P ) Well good luck "hunting" hehehe

He painted them, they were his work. He is a painter, really multi-talented, as they said here. I think it was the "girl who writes a lot". :D Besides the acting, and the painting and the writing, he is also musician.

I am still looking for such a picture but - no success. Maybe big scan of his face would work? :)

Oh, I read they messed it up a lot! But this includes only the hobbits, don't worry, if you're not their fan you won't suffer a lot (guess what: I am going to!). I'm not gonna say what i know though, cause it may be considered spoiler.

Anyway! King Elessar rocks! ;)

hmm.....his music is.....unique.....

a lot of what i listened to was just him sounding really sad and depressed while reading poetry to music. But what i ddi hear of actual singing was....hmmm.....lets just say he's no Justin Timberlake.

but thats my oppinion.
But he's still one of the hottest guys over 40!

You say that like its a bad thing! I do not like JT. (blah!) YEah it is kinda sad but I like it, but only when I am in the mood for sad music, not a driving in the car type of music. (unless you want to) But whatever, he is sooo sexy, even though he is soo old. (well not really) I cant wait to see him in the next movie!(ROTK) He gets all kingly and powerful and stuff. Whooo hoooo!!! :lol: :rolleyes: ;) ;) ;)
