The New York Daily News is reporting that Quentin Tarantino was spotted having a boisterous conversation with Viggo Mortensen at the Greenwich Hotel in Tribeca. A nearby eavesdropper is said to have observed the pair going through a script and discussing a role of a “ruthless gang leader.” We would have to assume this meeting was to discuss Tarantino’s upcoming film, The Hateful Eight.
Mortensen would be an excellent addition to the cast. He’s a hell of an actor with a lot of upside. He’s been flying under the radar lately, following his muse and focusing on more independent, character driven roles. Hateful Eight would be an excellent film for him to jump back into the spotlight with.
What do you think? Does Mortensen appearing in a Tarantino film do it for you?
