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!!

DANNYLAND ...

Danny has this disgusting habit of brushing his teeth and then rinsing his toothbrush and leaving it ALL WET in the toothbrush thing.  (See photo below.  A roll of toilet paper he sets on the counter like a cup and then sticks his toothbrush in the middle of it) ... what a genius huh?

The point?  Adisgusting, wet toothbrush will collect bacteria and mosquitoes and it's disgusting and filthy.  It drives me crazy.  Does he stop?  NO.  


What you're supposed to do is brush, rinse with HOT water and then DRY THE BRUSH THOROUGHLY ... THEN put it in the toothbrush thing.  IT'S NOT THAT HARD.

And how hard is it to take the yogurt OUT of the plastic bag?


God forbid he break a sweat. 

 Also, he never EVER closes a drawer, a cabinet, or a door ... EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Don't you HATE when your husband makes hamburgers ...




*sigh* ... my life.

OSCARS BEST AND WORST ...

Well, for some unknown reason I was unable to get E! Live on the Red Carpet!  I called the cable company, I unplugged the t.v. to reboot it ... NOTHING.  SO, I had to go with Channel 7's coverage which is NOT NEARLY AS IN DEPTH as E!  Needless to say Mama was pissed. 

So, with that in mind ... let's get started!


Alicia Vikander.  Beautiful!  She looks very young and sweet and elegant.  Love the color of this gown .... Grade:  A


Jennifer Lawrence.  BEAUTIFUL!  Love the hair, love the make up, love the the gown.  WINNER WINNER WINNER!!!  Grade:  A++


Brie Larson.  I'm not really feeling this gown.  The color is beautiful but the belt and the bling and the ruffles and the pleats ... there's a lot going on here.  Grade:  C



Nice guy Dave Grohl and wife.  Class Couple!  Love her dress and earrings ... very pretty. Dave .... it's the ACADEMY AWARDS .... a traditional tux would have worked much better and you would have looked SO HANDSOME.  Wife Grade:  A, Dave's Grade:…
