Alexander Skarsgard Is Going To Make A Movie



Yes, I know lots of actors make movies, but talking about Alexander Skarsgard's new movie gave me a reason to post a picture of him. Now the e-mails can stop for a little while. You have your Alexander fix. Alexander is set to star in Straw Dogs which is a remake of the 1971 movie with the same name. James Marsden is the lead and Alexander plays Charlie who is described as grizzled and athletic.

The story is about a Hollywood screenwriter who encounters bloody threats and conflict from locals in a small Southern town after he and his wife move there.

Interesting remake. Not sure about the James Marsden thing though. That guy kinda sucks.

i do like Alex Skarsgard though. He's a subtle, quiet actor. i like that.

Sporky said...

OMG! *melts*
Saving that picture.

How funny, I worked on a lawsuit involving the original move...

Beensie said...

Thank YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Will he be nekkid in the film?"

(Did I type that out loud?? Oops, mah bad.)

I have to say I am generally anti-blond men, but he can bite me on the neck any damn time he likes.

Man I love True Blood! And once again, they got ripped off at the Emmy noms this morning.

Jill said...

Thank you thank you thank you Enty!! Not only is Alexander one gorgeous piece of man, he's a decent actor who seems like a nice, down-to-earth guy.

pomme said...

i see on his photo all his talent!

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Bless you, ENTy.

This hunk has single-bodily reversed my runaway train to menopause and reved up the estrogen flow again. Vampire Eric's 1000 year old blood truly IS a magical elixir.

And in every interview, he's cool and humble. Hope he can keep his head as his fame grows because I think this guy is going to be a huge star very, very soon.

Jill said...

Not only did 'True Blood' deserve an Emmy nod, but Alexander definitely deserved a nod for his work in 'Generation Kill.' After seeing the real Brad Colbert on TV and comparing him to AS's portrayal in 'GK', I was even more impressed with Alexander's work.

Alison said...

Please, let this movie not be a total dog. I'm not sure about the James Marsden thing either, but the kicker is Kate Bosworth. Kate Bosworth?? Her part involves some pretty harrowing stuff; it's certainly not a puff part.

Ahh, Alex. I've never seen him perform poorly in anything and like Little Miss said, in every interview he comes across as incredibly normal and committed to doing a good job. No ego on that one.

That being said - HIS BODY! Holy crow, his body.

Kat said...

Why does he trip my gaydar? I want him to be hetero just to satisfy my mental cravings, but something about him seems...decidedly anti-girl. Just sayin'.

Charlie said...

Kat I totally thought the same thing. But whenever family or marriage is brought up in interviews, he makes it clear he's straight. Not that people don't lie about that kind of thing, but still. I believe he was voted Sweden's sexiest man around 5x so surely if he were into guys, it would be well-known there. They're pretty open about that kind of thing.

I could look at that drunk party picture all day.

Pookie said...

oh my. *swoon*

shakey said...

Thanks for that second photo. Much better than the first.

Sporky, can you say what the lawsuit was about on the first movie?

Sporky said...

Shakey it had to do with the screenwriting credit, or something to that effect. It was back in the early-mid 90's.

Brandi said...

Oh my. Thank you, Enty. Thank you.

mngddess...check out clips from his Swedish language films on You Tube if you want to see some nudity.

Lil said...

Thank you ever so much, Enty. However, there can never be too many Alexander Skarsgaard photos. More as Eric with the short hair cut, please. Woo-hoo. :-D

Anonymous said...

Oh man...I don't know....the original version was difficult to watch...still is...
and now a remake...
i hope the script is good because i love AS!

Ells said...

*sigh* thank you

ElsieFire said...

Remember back when I said I would gladly let all you peeps have Daniel Craig and Hugh?

Uhm, yeah, not so much with this one. And I don't usually go for the blondies.

The last 2 eps of TB have made my ladyparts sit up and take notice whenever he's on screen, LOL!

cibele said...

Thanks, Enty. I was waiting for a Alexander post.

He's so hot. Why is not sunday yet?

rachelstargirlrox said...

ooooh I looove his character on True Blood. *shamefully admits she has a True Blood addiction*.

:D Hopefully this movie will be good.

SugaMama said...

why does the name Skarsgard remind me of maggie haggie gylenhaal? is she related or had hooked up or something? Please god! with this hot piece?

Mooshki said...

I like him, but "Straw Dogs" should not be remade.

Alison said...

Sugamama - Peter Sarsgard (no k) is with Maggie G.

ali said...
