Case of the Viggo Clone?

I saw this bit of LOTR cast trivia over at the Entertainment Weekly site and thought I'd pass it along:

THREATENED L7 had to call off a video shoot in Texas for its new song ''Crackpot Baby'' when lead singer and guitarist Donita Sparks got a bomb threat on her cell phone on Nov. 13, according to MTV News. ''We've pissed off a lot of people during our career, especially this year,'' wrote guitarist Suzi Gardner in a statement. ''It could have been anyone from anti-pro-choicers to Lilith Fairers.'' Now the shoot -- which will be directed by actor Viggo Mortensen (''Psycho'') -- has been bumped back to mid-December.

Hasn't Viggo reported to N.Z. already? Has anyone told L7?

As far as I know Viggo IS in NZ, having replaced Stuart Townsend within a week-end. Perhaps it's another Viggo? Maybe L7 will film the video in NZ?

Thanks to G.E.C. for the tip!
