    Well, the Phil Spector "critique" seemed popular, so I give to you, Viggo Mortensen: Lord of the Rings star, and inventor of the bull-fighting/ice-dancing/black-tie amalgamation: [​IMG] [oops; I just noticed a typo in the thread title. Anyone know how to change that?]

    I would add "gunfighter/saloon gambler" to the amalgamation. Something to capture the spirit of the mustache.

    I had a friend who, when discussing scenes from Lord of the Rings, would refer to the characters by their actor names. E.g, "that scene where Viggo Mortensen and Orlando Bloom rescue Elijah Wood." This is the standard practice for most movies, but not for epics. Would you refer to Luke Skywalker as Mark Hamill or Princess Leiea as Carrie Fisher? Hell no. Only if one were a pretentious ass would one refer to Aragorn as Viggo Mortensen.

    Hmm, a bit off-topic.

    Hmmm... I'd've smacked some sense into him. From this [​IMG] to that... Viggo would be better off wearing costume from LotR.
