Hey there, fellow movie buffs and Lord of the Rings fans! Have you heard the latest scoop about Viggo Mortensen and his trusty sword from Middle-earth? Well, buckle up because we’re diving right into it!

So, Viggo Mortensen recently starred in a new film called The Dead Don’t Hurt, a Western set in the 1860s. He plays Holger, a Danish rancher who steals the heart of free-spirited Vivienne, played by Vicky Krieps. But here’s the kicker – in one fantasy sequence, eagle-eyed viewers may spot a familiar sword… Andúril from Lord of the Rings!

It turns out that Mortensen actually used his iconic sword from the fantasy franchise in a brief scene in his new movie. Talk about an unexpected crossover, am I right? In an interview with British GQ, Mortensen spilled the beans on how this epic sword made its way into The Dead Don’t Hurt.

Apparently, during filming, Mortensen realized that they needed a sword for a knight character in a sequence. Being the resourceful actor that he is, he remembered he had Andúril at home. I mean, who doesn’t keep a legendary sword lying around, am I right?

After a quick phone call to Peter Jackson, the mastermind behind the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Mortensen got the green light to use his sword in the scene. Of course, he also had to get approval from the movie company, but luckily they were totally cool with it. I mean, who wouldn’t want the iconic Aragorn sword making a surprise cameo, right?

In the end, it was a last-minute decision that added a magical touch to the film. And let’s be real, spotting Andúril in a Western setting is like finding a hidden gem for all us LOTR fans out there.

So, next time you watch The Dead Don’t Hurt, keep an eye out for that familiar sword glinting in the background. And remember, even in the Old West, a hero’s weapon can still have a touch of Middle-earth magic.
