Here’s Ricky Gervais’ beautiful introduction of Mel Gibson at the Golden Globes:

It’s pushing 15 years since Mel Gibson made a good movie, but the guy’s

Gibson:  I think it’s going to be English – the English that would have been spoken back then – and Old Norse.  Whatever the 9th century had to offer.  I’m going to give you real.

Collider: Is that really important to you.

Gibson:  I want a Viking to scare you.  I don’t want a Viking to say, “I’m going to die with a sword in my hand.”  I don’t want to hear that.  It pulls the rug out from under you.  I want to see somebody who I have never seen before speaking low guttural German who scares the living sh-t out of me coming up to my house.  What is that like?  What would that have been like?

For Mel, I bet it’s kind of like when a guy shakes your hand and says, “Hi, I’m Avi Greenberg.”
