Wait, Aragorn lives in Whatcom County? Or possibly the San Juan Islands? This is news to me, but not to the British media. In two separate stories on the UK's Guardian Web site (here and here), Viggo Mortensen is reported to live in the northwest corner of the U.S., in our own Evergreen State. So that means the late-blooming star of the Lord of the Rings franchise has left L.A. and moved to the 360 area code?
I can't find any domestic confirmation. Though we know that the sadly delayed adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's post-apocalyptic novel The Road, starring Mortensen, was filmed partly in the volcanic ashes of Mount St. Helens. Maybe Mortensen saw and visited other parts of the state that he liked? So here's a question to our friends and readers up in Friday Harbor and Bellingham: Where's Viggo?
