    The Book of Viggo

    In-depth interview explores the roots of Viggo Mortensen's art, poetry, music, and publishing. The interviewer and Viggo talk about the scene at Beyond Baroque and other Venice venues in the 1980s, where he says, "musicians and poets mixed freely and performed together," his art exhibitions at LA galleries, and about the genesis and current activities of Perceval Press. And of course he is still creating, writing poetry, reverting to film photography, and writing the screenplay for Falling.

    Viggo Mortensen: ‘Often people are desperate, so I do what needs to be done’

    Captivating interview with Viggo covers Jauja, his preparation and work as an actor, family, Perceval Press, and activism. Interviewer Alice Fisher concludes: "Whether he’s stumbling through a desert looking for life’s answers, bringing his own tea set to an interview or flying across the country for a 20-minute chat, the man knows what he wants.”
  3. The Hero Returns

    Tom Roston spent two days driving from Montana to Idaho with Viggo Mortensen and his son Henry. The resulting article includes conversations on LOTR, fame, commitment, exhaustion, sex appeal, eating roadkill, and philosophy. "You know, there are freakish and unexpected events that make up our lives. You have to be open to suffering a little."

    Things Are Weird Enough

    Pre-Lord of the Rings interview focuses on Viggo Mortensen's photography and other creative pursuits. "Mortensen makes obvious his obsession with the ordinary as he breaks to explain, for example, why the green countertop reflecting fluorescent light onto the cherry-red Coke machine in the background would make the perfect picture. 'I’d take it right now if I had my camera,' he lamented."
