In case you missed Viggo Mortensen’s appearance on Charlie Rose, catch a video of his political comments at Crooks and Liars. A few quotes. “I think if [the people of Iraq] are left to take care of their own affairs, I think they’ll do better in the long run.” When asked if he thought the United States should pull out right now, he answered, “Absolutely. I support our troops, and the best way to support them is to bring them home immediately. This is the wrong place to be.” Speaking of Bush: “Fiscal responsibility. Moral values. Fiscal responsibility. All of the planks of his political platforms have proved to be rotten and unstable.”

Added: SOTBK has a clip of the full Charlie Rose interview, along with the September 23 David Letterman interview and other recent appearances, all on their History of Violence page.
