Could Lord of the Rings star Viggo Mortensen be in line to be a bad guy in Quentin Tarantino’s next movie?
NY Daily News are reporting that the actor has been spotted talking with the director about a role in the western: “A Confidential spy spotted the legendary director “boisterously” discussing a role with Oscar nominee Viggo Mortensen at the Greenwich Hotel in Tribeca. According to the eagle-eyed hotel guest, the pair had what appeared to be scripts in front of them and seemed to be discussing characters. The filmmaker was overheard enthusing to Mortensen about a “ruthless gang leader” role.”
The movie is expected to start filming in Wyoming this November.
The cast will reportedly also include Samuel L. Jackson as Major Marquis Warren, Kurt Russell as the cruel bounty hunter John Ruth, Tim Roth as the English “bit of a fop” Oswaldo Mobray, Amber Tamblyn as Daisy Domergue, Walton Goggins as Chris Mannix, Michael Madsen as John Gage, Bruce Dern as Confederate Gen.
