Viggo Mortensen is again sporting facial hair and traveling through a strange land, but this time he’s leaving behind the hobbits and elves for a trek on The Road. The postapocalyptic tale is a tad on the solemn side, so for comedic relief: Catherine Zeta-Jones meets a flasher, Larry David goes bananas, and Jimmy Kimmel duets with (Neil) Diamond.
THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED
In our exclusive scene from the set of The Road (out later this year), a father (Viggo Mortensen) comforts his son (Kodi Smit-McPhee) after an apocalypse sends them on a harrowing journey to find safety. ”It’s relentlessly challenging,” Mortensen says of the drama, which is based on Cormac McCarthy’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name. ”Emotionally, this might be the most demanding role I’ve had.”
