Mortensen: I came to the U.S. in 1969 and got my crash course in baseball that October when they won the World Series. I've stuck with them through thick and thin. When they come to L.A., I see them play. It's not easy being a Mets fan. You're not a bandwagon guy. When we were shooting Lord of the Rings in New Zealand in 2000, a guy taped the Subway Series games and I watched them late at night. God, that was hard to watch. Just crushing. Horrible. It made me want to kill some more in the next scene.
