VIGGO

Even though the love is gone I still believe it is my duty to update all of you on all things Viggo, especially since his name is all over my blog and is a love-fest of Viggo, Viggo,Viggo. It was a wonderful 4 (or 6) years that I was in love with Viggo but as with all good things, it had to come to an end. I am willing to be mature and dignified in the face of heartbreak and take my lumps like a big girl. So, with that said, here is the latest on the man ...

HALLELUJAH! THE TRAILER IS HERE!!!! To check it out go to: http://www.themoviebox.net/
THIS IS GOING TO BE A FANTASTIC MOVIE. "
A Dangerous Method" (directed by David Cronenberg) will be released in late 2011. My guess is this film is very likely going to be an Oscar contender and the strategy is to release the potential award winners closer to award season. In this film, Viggo will play Sigmund Freud. It will be an interesting character study and based on the true relationship between Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung (played by Michael Fassbender), and Sabina Spielman (played by Kiera Knightly) in which the female protagonist is not only the patient, but also the lover of her psychiatrist, Carl Jung ... a relationship which crosses all kinds of ethical boundaries.

I read Carl Jung's "Man and His Symbols" many years ago. It was a fascinating read. Jung believed that man has a collective unconscious that serves as a form of psychological inheritance that has evolved over time and contains all the knowledge and experiences we share as a species. He also believed that symbols and dreams contained subconscious messages and ... OK OK! enough psychology for today. Bottom line, this sounds like a great movie.












Freud and Jung were collaborators and considered "th
e fathers of psychoanalysis". The film is based on the book of the same title (which I plan to read before I see the movie) ... and is full juicy stuff like illicit love affairs, jealously, manipulation and SEX. This is a special treat for me because I love love LOVE me some naked Viggo! I can't wait for this one to come to theatres.












Viggo's next film is "On the Road". Unfortunately, there are no pictures or trailers yet. This film is about beat writer Jack Kerouac's writings while he was ... you got it ... ON THE ROAD. This movie takes place during the 1950's when America was very uptight and recounts the free-wheeling bohemian life led by Jack and his contemporaries. Viggo plays "Old Bull Lee", a fictional character who is said to be roughly based on writer William Burroughs ("Naked Lunch") ...sounds like a hip flick guaranteed to satisfy all you cats and chicks.


Next, the Spanish speaking Viggo is working on a film in Argentina titled "Todos Tenemos Un Plan" (for all you gringos out there ... translation: "Everyone Has a Plan"). I love, love, love when Viggo speaks Spanish ... *double sigh*, muy, muy romantico. And, just as a sidebar, this is not the first Spanish flick Viggo has made. He has made several films in Spain, one which I've seen and another which I would KILL to have but it is nearly impossible to get ... and I know because I've tried.

In this film Viggo plays a twin whose brother is killed. Viggo then take
s on his dead brother's identity which takes him into the seedy underworld of Argentina. Sounds like a perfect vehicle for Viggo. Kinda like "History of Violence" - in which HE WAS ROBBED OF AN OSCAR NOMINATION dammit!

Here are a few pics:










doesn't he look handsome ... *sigh*












This is the actress who plays his wife in the movie. She's pretty huh.


It looks like he's really crushing
on her huh ...












Oh Oh Ariadna, you
better watch out ... that's the same look he gave you ...



















(now you know how I felt when you stole him away from me ... bish).

  1. Nice post. Viggo is a great drama actor and not just action/adventure. I can't wait to see "Dangerous Method". What is the title of the Spanish language film where Viggo takes the place of his dead brother? Is it available on Netflix? I'd love to see it.

    Interesting that sexual trysts will figure prominently in the upcoming Freud film, as he was the one who said that humans are basically ruled by conscious and unconscious sexual drives. He just neglected to remember: "Physician, heal thyself."

    Your bud,
    Ruben

  2. You're too funny! Personally, I'm a bit distracted ny the news that George Clooney's a free man again. Oh, happy day!

    When do you think you'll get your ass to Vegas? I'd love to meet you!

  3. I am so waiting to see Viggo on screen--it's been much too long! I have heard that he doesn't have a huge role in A Dangerous Method--but he will be brilliant--as will Fassbender. Seeing Viggo with contacts to make his eyes brown, and a prosthetic nose...is a bit strange--but it is a testament to how he can just morph--he really does look like Freud! I long to see him just look like his gorgeous self--maybe in On The Road, and for sure in Everyone Has a Plan. I'm with you--I think that he's crushing on his co-star! Take that, Ariadna!!

CALIFORNIA ...

SO, recently California passed a law wherein we now have to use our own bags every time we go to the market or CVS or Rite-Aid, or wherever.  If you don't take your own bags you have to purchase one for 10 cents.  So if you buy a shitload of groceries, you're now going to have to pay an extra 40 or 50 or 60 cents on top of that .... to help the environment.  HOWEVER, here's the really smart part.  The bags they sell you are made of .... wait for it .... PLASTIC.  you know ... to help the environment.

If you're smart like I am, you've already purchased plenty of bags with handles made out of something (not plastic) but sturdy and reusable.  I have them in my car.  And every time I go to the market or CVS or Rite-Aid I completely forget to take them into the store with me, ergo, I end up purchasing MORE PLASTIC BAGS.  California.  Why people want to come here I have no idea. 



RHOBH ....

Holy Moly Guacamole Batman what the hell happened on RHOBH last night?!  Erika (“Jayne”) Girardi lost her shit!  I mean, she actually SHED TEARS.  Now I gotta say that she is one of my favorite housewives.She’s a straight forward-no bull-shit kinda gal and I like that, but apparently the “panty-gate” situation bothered her much more than she originally let on.  

If you recall, a while back at a housewives get-together with the husbands, Erika showed up sans underwear.  As fate would have it, Dorit’s husband P.K. (what the hell kinda name is that?) was seated in direct view of said bare crotch and stared at it all night long (PERV).  If that were my husband his pee-pee would have been severed, filleted and roasting on the patio BBQ.  But I digress.  
So this became THEE topic of conversation ALL SEASON.  Well, in order to bring a peace offering of sorts and little levity to the situation, a few weeks later Dorit purchased a pair of sexy, lacy panties for Erika and told her t…

CONGRATULATIONS VIGGO on your Third Oscar Nomination!!!
