Although Viggo Mortensen is not listed in the cast line-up of ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’, he was asked to reprise his role as Aragorn by the film’s producers. Viggo revealed that Peter Jackson has asked him to reprise the role in his upcoming film, but later there were no further talks.

During an interview, Mortensen told that at one point, the producers have asked if he would do it and he said he would if Aragorn is supposed to be in the bridge story as he is not in ‘The Hobbit’. He also said that he would rather do it than see someone else do it, but he has never been asked formally and they were shooting the movie.

However, Mortensen has claimed that the chance to see Aragorn in ‘The Hobbit’ is very small. He said that he is not in it unless if there is some last-minute plan they have but, he though he would have heard of it by now. However, the 53-year-old actor has said that Orlando Bloom and Cate Blanchett shot something but they were elves and do not change as rapidly.

Viggo Mortensen told that Aragorn is half elf and also lives a couple hundred years or more and he could be in a bridge but he have to assume it is not going to happen. He also admitted that playing the character in the three ‘Lord of the Rings’ movie means a lot to him and it was an important period of his life.

‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ is being filmed based upon J.R.R. Tolkien’s best selling novel. The movie centres on Bilbo Baggins and Thorin Oakenshield along with the twelve dwarves who embark on an epic adventure to Lonely Mountain to reclaim a lost treasure that was stolen by the dragon Smaug. The movie is set to release on 14th December, 2012. However, the follow-up, ‘The Hobbit: There and Back Again’ is also scheduled for its release on 13th December 2013.
