His name is Viggo Mortensen, you’ve seen him as Aragorn in Lord of the Rings and soon you will be able to see not only his front decorations but his btm and the entire expanse of his underneath in David Cronenberg’s grisly new movie Eastern Promises, set in London’s not so glittering London. Oh, and there’s a gay in it. Sort of.
The story in question is about Russian mafia (all too realistic!) and sex trafficking and stuff and the scene in question sees Viggo in a sauna having a fight. His towel immediately comes off and he has to continue the very extended and horribly violent barney in the buff. There ain’t nothing you don’t see.
But the burning question in a very compelling, hard-core grisly movie is: that son character – is he the big old gay psychopath everyone reckons? And that’s not giving anything away. Also of note is Naomi Watts with a very credible London accent.
Judge for yourself in this compelling trailer…
