It's no surprise that the dude that won the role of Aragorn II Elessar is a tried-and-true geek. When he's not stomping Orc butts on screen, he's making music, poetry, and artwork, because the guy's passion truly knows no bounds. To top it all off, Mortensen is a real class act. On the set of the LOTR, he saw that stunt rider Jane Abbott deeply bonded with Florian, the horse who played Arwen's steed Asfaloth. So Viggo bought the horse for her as a parting gift! Good ole Viggo didn't have to act too hard as Aragorn, because both men apparently have hearts of pure gold.
