Viggo Mortensen is NOT in "The Hobbit"

Viggo Mortensen is NOT in "The Hobbit"Submit Comment
Before "The Hobbit" started filming, Viggo Mortensen was constantly asked if he will reprise the role of Aragorn in the prequels. He expressed his interest every time and during one interview, Peter Jackson confirmed that there is room to squeeze Aragorn into the story.

But even though Orlando Bloom, Cate Blanchett and Elijah Wood have all returned, Mortensen has yet to be brought back. "At one point, the producers asked if I would do it and I said sure, if Aragorn is supposed to be in the bridge story, because he's not in 'The Hobbit,'" said the actor. "But I've never been asked and they're shooting the movie. I'm not in it unless there is some last-minute plan they have, but I thought I would have heard of it by now."

He continued: "Orlando Bloom and Cate Blanchett shot something, but they're elves and don't change as rapidly. As you know, Aragorn is half elf and also lives a couple hundred years or more and he could be in a bridge, but I have to assume it isn't going to happen."

He's 10 or 20 depending on what time line you use. Remember kids in the book years go on between the 60 year mark of Bilbo's Party and the quest of the Ring.

"Half elf"??? I'm guessing Viggo never read up on the character. He's not half anything. He's Dunedain. Anyway, whether he's in it or not shouldn't have an impact. They would have to do some serious makeup and sfx to make him look young enough since he's in his 80's in LOTR and this is around 60 years earlier. No word on Christopher Lee returning?

evil.kev- I was gonna say I don't remember ever hearing that he was half Elf. Since they're probably gonna add a whole bunch of random sh*t in to fit the other characters it wouldn't suprise me. Can't f*cking wait for this film though.
