From annoying cab driver to Viking King:
In previous seasons of History Channel’s Vikings fans saw Donal Logue portray King Horik. But how did Donal get his big break?
Turns out it was back in the 90s on MTV as Jimmy the cab driver. Jimmy McBride prided himself on his music knowledge and would tell his captive audience of paying customers all about the music greats of that era. Donal revealed the following about his character:

During the height of his MTV success, Donal even got a chance to guest host MTV‘s 120 Minutes alongside Greg Dulli from the Afghan Wings. You can watch a clip of this below (and apologies for the bad quality, but we only had VCR back then):
