Retrova : He should have kept the Aragorn look!

WillFanofMany : To Sum up Viggo's last day. Bernard Hijacked Viggo's Makeup trailer and nearly plowed the camera man Over while the locals Chanted.

LaurenLovesMovies : "Now come the days of the King, may they be blessed."

SpartanUruk : Viggo is always Aragorn for me, even films that hes in now such a The Road, History of Violence etc I never see him as that character hes trying to portray, only as Aragorn. 

phoenixsplash135 : Viggo as Aragorn will be remembered as one of the greatest roles in cinematic history

Lachlan Hurburgh : In 2021 they should re-release fellowship in theatres for it's 20th anniversary. Many of us were too young at the time.

Dark Jedi : Viggo is actually one of the few actors I've seen who actually cares about the role he played in a movie. I've seen many actors who play a role JUST for the money and could not give two shits about the role they are playing (ex Harrison Ford in any role he's in). This is why Viggo is awesome. He played one of the best cinematic heroes of all time and has left an impact on cinema goers around the world. I salute you Viggo!

WeShall4ttack : Holy shit. Just read an interesting fact. The name "Viggo" allegedly actually means "War". Vigo (with 1 g), means Warrior, Combatant, also... yup, "Strider", which was Aragorn's nickname by the Hobbits ^^

james raddatz : there will be a time when i will not cry about the lord of the rings finishing... BUT IT IS NOT THIS DAY !

Rand al'Thor : Despite how hugely popular these movies are, I feel they are not as popular as they should be due to the fact that a lot of people don't watch fantasy movies "just because". There are so many people out there (like my friends) who would love these movies and recognize them for the masterpieces that they are if only they would give them a chance. I bought the extended editions each movie and fell in love with the behind the scenes extras. This is how films should be made, the cast and crew actually created a loving bond that made it so difficult to leave New Zealand and move on in their lives. Elijah Wood says that he had a really hard time going back America after spending years with such great people in such a beautiful country.

Juan Dom : Mortensen is not only a great actor, he's also a great guy in real life if you read about his political and social point of view. I think that he nailed the role of Aragorn, because in real life , he's an honest man who doesnt know what is arrogance! Thanks Viggo for the great acting!

Emi-Ochocinco : He could play rick grimes haha

dmaster225 : I guess this goes to show that Viggo, deep within, loves to larp.

Kargath Bladefist (WoD) : Aragorn getting respect from all the people he killed lol

Dream Factory : Happy birthday to my most favorite man in the world right now and hopefully for years to come. Though Aragorn has stayed with me for almost 10 years now but it is only 2 months ago that something compelled me to find more about him as a person. And I got all my answers as to why his Aragorn had kept me under spell. Cz he is a wonderful man. Polite,generous, intelligent and above all he has the most honest eyes in the world.

Frodo Baggins : I think Viggo is so lucky. I mean, he gets to be Aragorn, and apart of this great world Tolkien made. To be a character that everyone loves and knows, to me is a true privilege.

Fabled Pictures : I want to know if he got a Replica of Anduril! If I was on a movie I'd ask if I could get a copy of the weapon (if it was a sword/axe etc)

FanArt Zone : noone could ever play Aragorns role better than Viggo

Brendan O'Toole : My uncle was a part of the stunt crew, i've got a picture of him up on my fridge with viggo from that nights party. The welt is there, big time. What they did with these movies will probably never again be repeated, in terms of really making a family. I'm moved every time i speak with my uncle about this.

Corbin Mickles : Man I remember I was 11 when the fellowship of the ring came out. My mom took me and my brother out of school to wait in line at the theatre and it was wrapped around the building! Waited like three hours for the doors to open and I ended up seeing the movie 6 times in theatres lol good times.

Jane Barnes : I love that he was known as "No ego Viggo" on set  :)

Fabisch Factor : Can't drive a bus.... can't drive the Titanic....

Chris Epperson : That last scene must have been really hard on him, I know from stage acting that when your done with the play, you've spent time with the actors, other people. Eating, sleeping and reading your roles. The end when everything is said and done, it's not easy never mind for someone like Aragorn.

Jeff Dumelod : greatest movie ever

Spectator : "Why are these shirtless men yelling at me, I'm hungry, I want to go home already."

aplaceforthebirds : For all those saying they shouldn't have done the Haka. Having the Hakka preformed for you is a massive sign of respect in New Zealand culture. The movies were filmed in New Zealand, shut up about it God.

bbtank3000 : I'm usually 100% against spinoffs...but if there was ever the proposal for an Aragorn movie about his past or future, I'd be for it.

Nymeria73 : OMG! He got a Haka? That's huge. Aragorn always will be the love of my life. :-D

seling97 : "Yeah, it's a good thing I wasn't shooting the next day." -Viggo ;D

minch333 : Gets a haka. Headbutts everyone

Kruut Von .Trendkilla : A dedicated Haka what an honor.

Doomsy : At 2:17 Viggo's face just says, "Wtf is this. I was sleeping when my home just drove to this studio and now I'm watching this."

Deniz Demir : 1:42 There was this incredible haka. They gave him a haka. They didn't give me a haka...

Kaulinis : Viggo, king of the stuntmen!

BlankCanvas88 : Man, I miss these movies! I was so crazy about them when they first came out. I watched every behind-the-scenes thing and commentary I could get my hands on. I hope they make the Silmarillion.

SeraphinaAizen1 : Viggo was immensely well respected by the stunt team (and by the cast and crew in general). It's easy to see why in the various commentary and special features. Everyone who mentions the guy talks about his work ethic, and how eager he was to train and how hard he worked even when he got hurt. There are a few roles in cinema that are irreplaceable; if you had a different actor in the role, it just wouldn't have been as good a movie because the actor IS the character. Robert Downy Junior as Tony Stark. Harrison Ford as Han Solo. Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch. Viggo as Aragorn is, I think, one of those roles.

AlbertArtanis : What I love about this (my favorite behind the scenes bit of the entire Trilogy) is that you can see how Viggo is having one of those timeless moments.  The enormity of the event is filling him up, and you can see how awestruck he is by the honor being paid to him by men whom he knows so well and holds in such high esteem.  Wonderful.  I hope everyone has at least one moment like this in their lives.  It lives forever inside you.

Freya GM : They just don´t do men like him anymore

ewan weldon : the question i what to know is did he get to keep his sword

Marko1451 : Thats a lot of manliness here.

Kaiser Suzi : @Jim moon the reason Viggo was given a Hakka is cuz it is a sign of respect to royalty an dignitaries in New Zealand where the entire franchise was filmed. Just because u do not understand someone or their culture doesn't make it or them savages u ignorant moron This was the highest mark of respect an Viggo is someone who loves to learn about other cultures

Heart of Fire : Viggo looks like jaime lannister. Wait a second... theyre both danish! danish awesomness

Christian P Schneider : That's all an actor could ever want.  Awards, money, whatever: The greatest thing you can ever receive is respect from others, especially from a walk of life different from your own.  That truly was special.

the Whaler : The role of Aragorn could have found no better home than Mortensen. I can't think of a single actor that would have fit the role better than him. He has this soft-spoken, quiet authority to him in real life. I think it would have been so easy to make the character overwrought and pretentious, gloomy even, the same way I've seen so many reserved heroes ruined in the past, but Mortensen nailed it. His performance translated perfectly into the character that Tolkien wrote. While Jackson's The Lord of the Rings isn't perfect, it is a damn fine piece of work that captures the narrative force and emotion of the books, and in some ways even surpassing it. The Ride of the Rohirrim will always be the most triumphant moment in cinema I will ever experience. Glad to have lived through it.

xXBadapp1eX x : I know it's pronounced Aragorn but in the movies it always sounds like they are saying Aragon

Alice.Rachel_93 : For all those saying that Aragorn could theoretically be in The Hobbit ... he couldn't really. The events of The Hobbit take place in the TA 2941, Aragorn was born in TA 2931. At aged 10 Aragorn would have been in Rivendell when the Company arrived but whether or not Aragorn interacted with Bilbo and the Dwarves isn't stated and isn't really that important to the story. What people often (and understandably) forget is that there is about 17 years between Bilbo's 111th birthday and when Frodo left the Shire and the Fellowship was formed ... the movies just didn't show this.

Synystr7 : Who got Andúril?

Johnny Solipsis : I would have cast this film better.  Sylvester Stalone as Arragorn, Bruce Willis as Gimli and Wesley Snipes as Legolas to name but 3. 

Hudsanity : Not gonna lie, Viggo should keep the facial hair..or long hair.  at least not go fully clean shaven/surfer dude look.  I've just never gone from wanting to turn gay for a guy to thinking that he could fit the description of an annoying neighbor in the suburbs.. (I know this is 2014, but please don't slam me for homophobic responses or w.e flack I'll receive for that statement..)

JuGGernaut81295 : Man it must have been an experiance being a part of the production of this. I would have given anything just to be like a boom guy or production assistant.
