I picked Viggo, because [In reply to] Can't Post

We haven't seen enough of Richard. Taking character development into consideration, it's too early to tell for Thorin, but Aragorn's character developed well. But if you were to compare FotR to AUJ, then I'd vote Richard Armitage. I loved Viggo's performance, but the way his accent seemed to change in FoTR bothered me. At some points he sounded almost Irish.

Other than that, I'm happy with both actors' portrayals.

Ooh! [In reply to] Can't Post

"I vote for him for Beleg Cuthalion when someone decides to do Children of Hurin... [/quote]"

That would work brilliantly! And it would *spoiler* fulfill his tradition of dying in every single series and movie he's in.

And yes, he has pretty eyes...

I thought it would be inevitable for this thread to turn into a Viggo/Richard fangirl rampage...

I went with Mortensen just because [In reply to] Can't Post

he's a more of a known quantity, as far as Middle-earth is concerned. We'll just have to see where Richard Armitage takes it. So far he's doing alright i guess, but right now i like the actor more than the performance. Looking forward to seeing what he does with the roll in the next two...

I picked RA [In reply to] Can't Post

because while I think Viggo is a very talented actor he portrayed PJ's version of Aragorn not my (book) Aragorn and I always had a problem with the changes to movie (conflicted, indecisive) Aragorn. I've seen Viggo in other movies and he's very talented but he just wasn't what I wanted Aragorn to be.

I canīt chose right now. And the hardest side of Thorin is about to come [In reply to] Can't Post

I canīt chose. Thereīs too much to see about Richard yet.

So far I can say Thorin is way more difficult role to play than Aragorn

Can't quite say...... [In reply to] Can't Post

since, first of all, I've never seen Richard Armitage in anything except AUJ and his cameo in Captain America. I'll have to re-vote after TABA comes out but for now since, I'm more of an Aragorn fan (not necessarily a VM fan), I'm voting with Viggo.
