Viggo Mortensen & Bridget

Synopsis: Viggo Mortensen speaks briefly about how he chooses his film roles, and on recreating Psycho. Excerpt: "It was a good blueprint," he says regarding Van Sant's decision to be faithful to the original 1960 thriller in script, score, and marketing. "If you're going to do a remake of a movie, this is the one to do it with because the formula works so well."
