Viggo Mortensen is like a fortunately unfortunately story. A fortunately unfortunately story is a book where the plot is alternating positive and negative events. My sister wrote one in elementary school and it has really set my understanding of the genre. Anyway, Viggo is fortunately unfortunately. Unfortunately he was in G.I. Jane. Fortunately he was the hot guy in A Walk on the Moon. Fortunately he was Aragorn in the Lord of the Rings movies. Unfortunately he was in A History of Violence, but fortunately… he was in Eastern Promises. What a crazy f-ed up movie. Any actor or director that would go for a naked fight scene really has something crazy going on. His next movie is really going to be horrible because Eastern Promises was so good. Good thing he has five movies in the works.
