Viggo Mortensen Interview – Captain Fantastic – “This film asks what if I was to give literally every moment of my day to my children?”



He’s the star of the Lord of The Rings trilogy and the Cronenberg trifecta, A Dangerous Method, Eastern Promises [which nabbed him an Oscar nod for Best Actor] and the brilliant, A History of Violence. So it’s saying a lot when Viggo Mortensen declares that his latest movie, Captain Fantastic, is the best script he’s ever read.


Q: Has your gut ever been wrong with these bigger movies?

MORTENSEN: [laughs] I’ve said no to projects that in hindsight, I maybe should have done.
