Matt Ross Only Had Eyes For Viggo Mortensen To Star In 'Captain Fantastic'!

Viggo Mortensen flashes a smile alongside Matt Ross while attending the photo call for their latest film Captain Fantastic held during the 2016 Rome Film Festival at Auditorium Parco Della Musica on Monday (October 17) in Rome, Italy.

While promoting the flick, writer-director Matt, 46, expressed his love for Viggo and how he only wanted him for the leading role.

“I’ve admired him since he was in [Sean Penn's 1991 film] The Indian Runner and I’ve followed his work for years,” Matt expressed (via Stuff). “I think he brings an integrity, gravitas to everything he does and that his choices as an actor speak volumes. I also believe that the lead actor is in some ways the public face of the movie, so for me this was a statement of artistic intent, aligning myself with him.”
