Another one bites the dust? Viggo Mortensen recently dropped a bombshell about the future of his career, telling Men's Journal in an interview that he's going to quit acting altogether.
Mortensen is currently promoting his film The Road with Charlize Theron, but I'm not sure what will become of his rumored two projects in the pipeline, A Wing and a Prayer and Vanikoro.
He did mention that he would come back for a possible sequel to Eastern Promises and The Hobbit prequels, which says to me that he's not exactly quitting acting, he's taking a break. It would be sad to see Mortensen bid farewell to Hollywood, and it would be even more depressing to see him follow in Joaquin Phoenix's bizarre footsteps. What do you make of Mortensen's declaration — will he really quit acting?
