Possibly...too good-looking? [In reply to] Can't Post

'I see,' laughed Strider. 'I look foul and feel fair. Is that it?'

Hoult looks like he should screen test for Superman. Seriously!

Yes he can be a bit of a pretty boy when he is cleaned up and shaven but roughen up the image a bit and he has a strong chin like Viggo, smoky eyes and I think could pull it off as a somewhat naiver, younger version. Don't know how tall he is mind. He does need to be a six footer!! I tried touching up a photo of him but I couldn't upload the damn thing. Imagine your photo with a bit of dirt, long unkempt hair and rough shaven. Hey Presto, we are getting closer. Not perfect, but if they are looking for a reasonable likeness to Viggo.............(not that they'd be listening to me!!!) Cool

Nicholas Hoult is tall. [In reply to] Can't Post

Allegedly, Hoult is 6'3" (1.9m). He's actually several inches taller than Viggo. Viggo's son Henry Mortensen is 30 years old, is 6'2" and also an actor.

Benidict Cumberbatch [In reply to] Can't Post

He is the obvious choice if he would accept it.

Too obvious [In reply to] Can't Post

I love his style, but I disagree that he is a good Aragorn. His actorly persona is too knowing, too ironic, to be Aragorn.

Not Cumberbatch [In reply to] Can't Post

He's too old now to play Aragorn in his period of great journeys and errantries. And I agree with the view that his persona is all wrong.
