Viggo Mortensen, painting, poetry and music
The Academy Award-nominated star of movies such as "Eastern Promises" and the "Lord of the Ring" trilogy is apparently a regular Renaissance man, having published various books of poetry, photography, and painting. He has released more than a dozen albums, including several collaborations with guitarist Buckethead. His work as a painter has been featured in galleries worldwide, and many of the paintings of the artist he portrayed in "A Perfect Murder" are actually his own. On top of all that, he founded the Perceval Press in 2002 to publish the works of little-known artists and authors.
