Viggo Mortensen returning for the second Hobbit movie?

According to Beyond Hollywood Guillermo Del Toro would want Viggo Mortensen to return as Aragorn in the "second Hobbit movie", telling the tale of Aragorn and Arwen and how met. Currently Viggo is quite popular in Hollywood so we'll see if he would get the time if he's interested. Full article on

Tell us what you would think of this idea, would it be interesting? Should they leave it be? Would you see some other actor than Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn?

I don't know. He's a little old to play 20 years old, if they plan to include when Aragorn and Arwen first meet. There'd have to be a lot of FX magic to make him look younger. But I imagine these days, with what's available on the CG end, that's possible.

Haha, yes, I didn't think of that! However, he's one of the Dunedain. So he will get very old. So perhaps he looked about the same at that time. But Viggo has grown older for sure. Lots of make up and CGI :-)
