UPDATE: More Honors for Viggo in Spain

Valdelugueros will dedicate a plaza and a plaque to Viggo Mortensen

On December 14th, we posted a story from our friend Miguel Angel Nepomuceno, who sent this piece from Diario de León about Viggo and Alatriste being honored in Valdeteja. Our thanks go out to Margarita for this wonderful translation. Now we know what a great honor this is for Viggo and for Alatriste.

Agreement by the plenary session of the City Council of Valdelugueros, Oct. 14, 2006 / 8.3-Recognition by the city of Valdelugueros of the New York actor Mr. Viggo Mortensen

The mayor proposes the following for the consideration of the Council:

To thank New York actor Viggo Mortensen, star of the movie Captain "Alatriste", for the interest he has repeatedly demonstrated in our city, contributing to the knowledge of the city and its recognition around the world

The City Council emphasizes the appreciation and interest shown by the actor in researching the historical roots of his legendary, historical character, a soldier of the Flanders Regiment in the 17th century, and a native of this city of Valdelugueros.

The actor Viggo Mortensen portrays Captain "Alatriste" serenely and eloquently, identifying himself with the proverbial sentido hidalgo of our country.

His repeated visits to our cities, especially to Valdeteja, which went far beyond purely professional reasons, have made him a beloved ambassador of our city, and contributed to the city's recognition and elevated status around the world

In virtue of the many merits of New York actor Viggo Mortensen, the City Council of Valdelugueros and its members unanimously concur:

First: To express our most sincere gratitude and recognition to Mr. Viggo Mortensen, New York actor, by dedicating a Plaza and stone monolith to him in the city of Valdeteja.

Second: From this day forward, that the actor Viggo Mortensen will become a part of our history and that, for the neighbors and admirers of this city of Valdelugueros, he will embody the transparency and warmth of Captain Alatriste's character, native of this region. His name will be engraved in the noble and sturdy stone of Valdeteja, in recognition for his kinship with the region of the Alto Curueño, and he will be a well-qualified ambassador for the city of Valdelugueros before the world.

On December 21, 2006 we published a report from that pushed a rumor stating that Viggo had been offered a part on the TV series Crossing Jordan.

We can officially debunk that rumor as being false.

From Viggo's manager and publicists...

...we have never been approached by Crossing Jordan in regard to Viggo, and secondly, he's committed to films all year and not available for a series.
Now you know.
