Crooks and Liars has the video of Viggo Mortensen amazing interview on Charlie Rose's show.
I admire the man. He shows up with a gift for the host, a copy of Howard Zinn's Voices of A People's History of the United States. One of my favorite books and is followed by a brilliant presentation on the state of the country in a calm and articulate way.
And on his web site I find a quote from another favorite author of mine, Gore Vidal and plenty of articles from authors that I like.
