Viggo Mortensen is supposedly up for a role as a villain in Tarantino’s upcoming The Hateful Eight.
According to The New York Daily News, the filmmaker has been seen at the Greenwich Hotel in Tribeca “boisterously discussing” the script and it was overhead that the Lord of the Rings actor is being sought for the part of a ruthless gang leader.
The Hateful Eight follows a mistrustful group of people who become trapped together by a blizzard. Bruce Dern, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Amber Tamblyn, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth and James Remar are touted as part of the cast.
Hopefully Tarantino makes a serious movie this time around…
