Easter Greetings

Dear readers,

We’ve been keeping one last, central piece of the casting puzzle a deep secret for many months.
The time has now come to reveal it!

We’re proud to announce that the part of King Olav V of Norway, founder of the Royal Norwegian Ninja Force, is played by esteemed humorist/actor/musician/physician Trond-Viggo Torgersen! As fans of his work from our childhood up to and including our adult years, Trond-Viggo’s participation in our project is a matter of great joy for us. International fans may remember him from his hilarious turn in Bent Hamer’s film “O’Horten“, a part which also brought him award recognition.

There’s an interview with Trond-Viggo and director Thomas over at Dagbladet.no (Norwegian language).

And without further ado – here’s the King’s message to his subjects for the Easter season:

Translation: “Dear Countrymen. Happy Easter!”

Edit: here it is on Youtube as well.
