    ‘Eastern Promises’ to Showcase Viggo Mortensen’s JunkViggo Mortensen goes full frontal in a knife fight scene in new David Cronenberg Russian Mob flick Eastern Promises. At the premiere, Cronenberg told New York that Mortensen suggested the nudity himself when they choreographed the scene, which takes place in a bathhouse. “He said, ‘You know, it’s obvious I’m going to have to do this naked.’ And I said, ‘Great.’ That was pretty much the discussion,” Cronenberg said at a screening after-party at the Soho Grand. “If he had had this towel wrapped around him that never moved, you would’ve noticed that. But this was so real.” [Ed. note: Then where did he hide his knife??]
