Viggo Mortensen on heroism: 'You don't have to go save 13 people in a cave in Thailand to do the right thing'
Even as the actual event was unfolding, you knew the 2018 Thai cave rescue — a gripping real-life story of ingenuity and international cooperation with a happy ending — would become a Hollywood movie.

We spoke with Mortensen, 63, about his attachment to the story, his preparation for the role, and his deeper thoughts about inspiration and heroism.
Warning: This article contains spoilers for the fifth episode of Netflix's The Sandman, "24/7." The Sandman is not primarily a horror series. Over the course of 75 issues, writer Neil Gaiman used his protagonist — Morpheus, the king of dreams — to explore all manner of stories, from fairytales to historical fiction. But The Sandman did get very scary, especially in its early run. The sixth issue in particular might be the scariest horror comic ever published.

By tube, he means his film's set: a series of distinct train cars for his cast of trained killers to play in.

Madonna's wild new self-referential rap song will go right through your bod-ay like a double shot of soy latte. The queen of pop music just dropped a surprise collaboration with Saucy Santana, "Material Gworrllllllll!"
