PortrayedAragorn II in:
 Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings

American actor Viggo Mortensen (born 1958) played Aragorn in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings film trilogy. He was a last-minute replacement for Stuart Townsend, as director Peter Jackson did not believe Townsend looked old enough to play the part convincingly. Mortensen was considering turning down the part, but his son, who loved the books, encouraged him to take the role.
