Viggo Mortensen on Why He Hopes to Direct Like David Cronenberg and Peter Farrelly
Speaking of his upcoming project Falling, where he will be directing for the first time, Viggo Mortensen said, "I've been very lucky. I've had some great teachers.... I've been in many good stories and I've worked with great directors.... No matter how different the tastes or the storytelling techniques of David Cronenberg or Matt Ross or Pete Farrelly, all of them share one thing in common: they're team players." He went on to talk about the kind of actors he wants to work with, mentioning Mahershala Ali as a sterling example.
