Captain Fantastic to Premiere July 8th in US

We’re all very happy for our favorite actor as his newest film “Captain Fantastic” will be premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. The movie will then have a US release on July 8, 2016. I know I’m excited to see Viggo in a movie again. Seems like it’s been too long.

In this movie, he plays a father who is forced to enter “the real world” after his wife takes her own life. Before, he and his children were apparently living in the woods undergoing survival training and solving puzzles. It is “emotionally gripping” according to one Variety editor.

I’m very happy to support him in his latest project and I hope all his fans will do the same. As always, I’m sure he’ll do an excellent job bringing his character to life and infusing the film with his wonderful personality.


Viggo Losing Weight For His Role in “The Road”

This is! This site is for the amazing actor Viggo Mortensen. He is a Danish-American actor that appeared in several feature films throughout the 1990s (GI Jane, Crimson Tide) and became a household name after starring in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Peter Jackson selected Viggo for the role because his superb acting skills were needed to bring the beloved Aragorn character to life.

Viggo is a talented actor (married to Ariadna Gil) and this site is for his fans to discuss and share what we like about this talented man. We are also happy to discuss other talented actors and filmmakers as our goal is for open discussion of Viggo Mortensen’s projects as well as his colleagues’ projects.

So, feel free to talk about any and all your favorite actors. Some of mine are Hugh Jackman, Ed Harris, Chris Hemsworth, and the list goes on.

Weight Loss for Film Roles

An actor’s physique is often one of his biggest assets. So, when it comes time to either beef up or lean down, what to the pros do? They hire the best trainers, take the best supplements and do whatever it takes to get ready for the camera!

Viggo Mortensen has to do something similar in his role in “The Road“. He said “It took a certain amount of discipline” so we know that it takes a lot of hard work for actors to slim down for the parts they are playing.

Hugh Jackman

Hugh Jackman also notoriously starved himself for his role in Les Miserables. He describes it as “most grueling role ever” He shed 30 pounds by lifting weights for 3 hours per day and eating very low calories (500-1000 calories per day).

To assist in slimming down, many actors have also taken weight loss pills such as garcinia cambogia extracto. When keeping in mind the contraindicaciones, and making sure to avoid the efectos secundarios, supplements like this can speed up the process of burning fat to prepare for that shirtless scene.

Previously in his role as Wolverine in the X-Men Series, Jackman packed on muscle to bring to life that beloved comic book hero.


Chris Hemsworth

Chris Hemsworth is another actor who changed his body for a movie role. He packed on 15 lbs of muscle to star as the “God of Thunder” in the film Thor. Lifting heavy weights with proper form and eating just enough calories to sustain muscle growth was the key to his successful transformation. Eating lean proteins such as chicken breast along with vegetables every day trimmed away the fat while providing enough protein to fuel building more muscle. The result is ripped abs, bigger chest and shoulder, and bulging biceps. Not a bad combination for the silver screen.
