We’ve heard from Ian McKellan about wanting to be in the new Hobbit movies, now Viggo Mortensen has thrown his hat into the ring – the ONE ring, that is! – as well:
Mortensen also said he would like to replay the “Lord of the Rings” part of Aragorn in future “Hobbit” movies that have been announced by “Rings” director Peter Jackson. “I’d rather not have another actor play the part I started out playing for Peter Jackson. And I had a lot of friends from that experience,” he said.
It would be so amazing if they could get as much of the original cast back for the prequels! Viggo was amazing, as were the rest, and I can’t quite picture anyone else playing the roles.
Don’t screw this up, or you’re bound to piss a lot of people off!
