Viggo Mortensen will not be in ‘The Hobbit’

November 22, 2011 at 2:19 am by MrCere  - 

Nobody can be shocked or even surprised but some fans were still holding out hope that Viggo Moretensen‘s Aragorn character would return in some form or fashion for the two part presentation of Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit.

In an interview with Movies.com, the actor addressed the question directly and says that while he was once asked if he was willing to be involved, nothing has moved forward at this point. That may not be official, but its about as confirmed as information gets.

“I’m not in it unless it there is some last-minute plan they have, but I thought I would have heard of it by now.”

During the Middle-earth portion of the interview he mentioned the “bridge film” that was once part of the two-movie plan for The Hobbit but was later abandoned when the writing team of Jackson, Fran Walsh, Phillipa Boyens and Guillermo del Toro wrote the episodic children’s book into a two part movie. The mysterious bridge film was dropped. Moretensen also spoke of his third film with director David Cronenberg, titled A Dangerous Method, where the actor portrays Sigmund Freud.

    Since aragorn was only ten years old at the time of the Hobbit – this is hardly surprising news!  However I shall be looking carefully to see if a young boy can be spotted running around in Rivendell!
