Viggo Mortensen saying "You bow to no one" is like Mark Hamill saying "May the Force be with you"
The great Viggo Mortensen! He wasn't the first choice to play Aragorn, but damn if he wasn't the best choice!
You can see Stephen just itching to talk about LOTR but restraining himself to do his job
I like how he says he's seen, "The Hobbits" as though in some undisclosed location all 4 of them are still roommates.
Brandon Wei
Brandon Wei:
I love how he just lumps Elijah, Sean, Dom, and Billy as "the Hobbits."

I'm a simple man, I see a video of Stephen talking to one of the LotR cast members... ...I CLICK!

Viggo has the most adorable grin I’ve ever seen on a totally hot adult man! There is genuine kindness and intelligence behind his eyes. Just love him!

Here i sit with the warmest fuzziest of feelings for those two wonderful people after having just a short break to cry my eyes out because of their discussion of keeping the flame alive and the open wound being basically the same thing. Hit me like a truck out of nowhere. And instead of being utterly crushed by the thought i feel encouraged. Such a great conversation! Deep thanks to both of them =)

It might be just me but Viggo Mortensen is getting hotter as he gets older

Damn, I thought Stephen was semi joking with the 7 languages thing and then Vigo pulls out the fluent Spanish 😅😍

I vote him one of the best actor ever. My favorite movie of his, is "Hidalgo".
Ilka Lohmann
Ilka Lohmann:
So amazing. To be told by Viggo Mortensen: "You bow to no one!" Stephen Colber is now a knight of Gondor. Arise, Sir Stephen! King Ellessar has spoken.
damn after all this time he is still fine. Never forget the first crush XD
Self Help Group
Self Help Group:
The moment at 07:37 when Stephen Colbert realises he can die a happy man: 'You, my friend, bow to no one.'
John Neveu
John Neveu:
Anyone else find it funny how the LOTR actors always seem so relaxed talking to Colbert? Like they have this attitude just like "Well, why shouldn't I talk to my biggest fan for 10mins?"
Jennifer Cole
Jennifer Cole:
He comes across as such a lovely person
Where's the other 3 hours of this interview? I want them! :)

Find you a man that looks at you the way Colbert looks at Viggo :D

So good to see Lance Hendrickson in a new major film. A sadly neglected talent and one of my personal faves. And so nice to see Viggo Mortenson. An artist, not a celeb. Great admiration for artists who stay humble despite their fame.
is incredible how his voice changed from english to spanish!

Dude writes poetry. He's a likable James Franco.

Blake A:
“But when Aragorn arose all that beheld him gazed in silence, for it seemed to
them that he was revealed to them now for the first time. Tall as the sea-kings of old, he
stood above all that were near; ancient of days he seemed and yet in the flower of
manhood; and wisdom sat upon his brow, and strength and healing were in his hands,
and a light was about him. And then Faramir cried:
'Behold the King!'
Marina Azores
Marina Azores:
So where in Spain is Viggo? Asking for a friend.
"I am most nourished - not consumed."

Same way I feel, Stephen. Same. 😁
ABC 123
ABC 123:
I could listen to these two converse all day. So thoughtful. So intelligent. So funny. So wise. And both wounded by life - Stephen losing his father and two older brothers in a plane crash, especially - but being able to incorporate such loss into their lives and not only survive but thrive. No Hollywood bullshit. No politics. Just openness, and humility, and love.

The world needs more of this.

He seems so soft-spoken that if you didn't know who he was you would never believe he is one of the greatest actors of our generation

I think Viggo's role in the Ĺord of the Rings was awesome and I think he's a sexy man!

I had no idea when I woke up today, I would connect with these two great people through our shared ordeal with having vertigo.
And that I would need that connection.
Take care everyone

Doing three movies like that, back to back. Peter Jackson must be the best Jigsaw Puzzle expert in the world. Whilst juggling at the same time.

Mortensen comes across as a very calm, thoughtful and educated guy. I wish more celebrities were like him.
“The Hobbits” 😂😂😂 This is their identity.
Martin C
Martin C:
I'm sure Stephen had to hold himself back when Viggo referred to the Uruk-Hais as Orcs.
One of the only "celebrities" I have consistently been in love with my whole adult life, heh. Viggo is a different level.
This might be the only Late Show interview where you know that the Dude doing the Interview is more interested in the actor then the actor.
He's in Madrid; my son went to the same primary school as his wife's son. Wiggo was there all the time.

"Flame alive and the wound open" - "the pain is also part of you" -5:00 what beautiful words and sentiment - my dad passed 22 Jan 1998 - 8 years after he was formally diagnosed with dementia - I was 19 (in hindsight, in grieving him in late 1998 - I realised I had known since I was 16) - it is painful - esp watching him become a shadow of himself - mentally & physically - over those 8 years - having those 8 years made me appreciate him even more - every moment with him
Be still my beating heart, It's Viggo!! 😍 Thank you Stephen! 😊

He kept his horse after becoming attached to it during filming. He also collects tumors and pizza boxes, fair dinkum.

As a kid, my dad mocked my vertigo. He said I'd get a nosebleed standing on a thick carpet.

Tidus Whiteblade:
"I would have followed you, my brother, my captain, my King." Viggo is an absolute joy and treasure to humanity.
Wen Yih Ng
Wen Yih Ng:
I thought I detected a smallest crack in Viggo's voice when he spoke about his mother's dementia and death, and also about how he tried to keep the flame alive. Sure glad he's had many years of acting experience to help suppress his grief.
Alex Rydin
Alex Rydin:
I would die to see video of orcs comforting aragorn during a vertigo attack.
Remembering the first time these two met back on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. :)

Oh cool, Colbert finally interviewed Lucifer!
Love Viggo. I've always been so chuffed that we share the same birthday 😬
Knull Gorr
Knull Gorr:
Sounds like Falling is Big Fish from the other end. And I think that's great.
OMG Aragorn told Stephen "you my friend bow to no one!" 🥰 So wholesome.
Colbert really looked like larry king this interview.
He said "Hello, how are you? How are we tonight?" when he spoke in Spanish 😄
Gearoid Collins
Gearoid Collins:
Stephen freaked out internally when Viggo said "you bow to no one"

Dammit, That was... moving! Oh, the memories! I read the trilogy only a couple of years before the first movie was announced. It was while I was on a search for thrillers and detective fiction. When I first glanced at the title, I found it so long that I almost didn't pick it up. But then, somehow, I changed my mind. It was the last of the 3 books I had brought home that day and it was the final book that I read. And then, I wanted to read the next part. This was before internet searches became a thing and I had to wait a week before I could go back to the library. I quickly picked up parts 2 and 3. The Hobbit, I didn't get to until almost a year had passed. And I had almost forgotten having read the trilogy. I found it one day casually looking for something, anything to read. The author's name seemed familiar and the name of the book weird. I opened the book at random and the name 'Baggins' rang a vague bell somewhere. The next year, I saw in the papers that they were going to shoot the first of the trilogy. I had started earning by now, so I went to the book store and purchased the trilogy at (luckily for me!) a sale. This was in 1999. I have since read the trilogy in its entirety along with The Hobbit enough times to be able to call myself a fan.

Wow! This is the longest comment I've ever written on YouTube!
Will there be (YouTube / Internet ) EXTENDED interview clips??? I know you talked with him more.
MORE Viggo, please!!!
A true renaissance man!☀️I also experienced my mother having dementia in her final years. It was one of the toughest things I have ever experienced.
Robert Koelle
Robert Koelle:
Viggo's comments about adapting his memories of his mother into a film are maybe the most open and vulnerable I've ever seen a celebrity be on a talk show. And Stephen got that immediately, and responded appropriately. Beautiful.
Haggard Blaggard
Haggard Blaggard:
Have we talked about how he speaks a baker's dozen languages?

His performance in eastern promises is truly unbelievable.

Flame alive is the same as wound open. A profound, bitter sweet truth.

My favorite movie was Hidalgo
Iwein Joos

Ofcourse people confuse Stephen and Viggo... One played Aragorn and the other played his much more handsome, much more skilled twin brother Darrylgorn an a much more popular movie!
Way too short an interview

Time for stephen to go being star struck as a fan and revisiting his major man crush

That was a beautiful sentiment: The wound and the flame.
Also, were they to remake From Russia with Love, Viggo would be able to play the perfect looking counter spy hired by Spectre, "Old boy" lol
When you fall in love with a character in a novel it’s always a disappointment to see them portrayed on the screen. Except, Viggo IS Aragorn. He was perfect. He’s always perfect in everything he does.
Does the seven languages he speaks include about the Tolkien languages?
Vigo don't trust the guy in the bathroom I don't care if he says he forgot about it he brought facehugger eggs on the plane. I don't know why he's always doing things like that.
