NEW YORK — As an easygoing pickle vendor in the comedic “Maggie’s Plan” (opening Friday), Travis Fimmel is oceans and millenniums away from Ragnar, the warrior king he plays on History’s “Vikings.” For the laid-back Fimmel, 36, that’s no big deal.

He Read More

“Vikings” fans were not disappointed with the premiere episode of season 4.

BY DONNA FREYDKIN Watching the throne ain’t easy. Just ask beleaguered rapper Kanye West. Or, in the case of the History Channel’s “The Vikings,” Travis Fimmel. He plays a fearsome, ambitious, ruthless warrior who ascends to become the king of Denmark, but whose life is filled with battles and bloodshed. He also sports a shaved head in the series, something that isn’t quite as easy as it sounds. “I’ve never Read More
