I haven’t written about my love, Alexander Skarsgard since May 13th, and I regret neglecting to gush and swoon about him on my blog. But rest assured I’ve been keeping track of him, but I just haven’t found the time to post it.
So today, I will post all the Alexander news I’ve been monitoring:
Alexander as a child
Alex has a new brother! Yup, Alex’s father, Stellan Skarsgard welcomed Ossian on April 26, 2009 to the family. This is the first child for Stellan’s new wife, Megan Everett, and Stellan’s 7th. Yes, seven. Be warned ladies, apparently Stellan is extremely fertile; don’t let him hug you too tightly or you might wind up pregnant (just kidding). Check out all the Skarsgard kids (those Skarsgards' have great genes).
Alexander will NOT be playing Thor
It became official that Alexander is out of the running as Thor in the upcoming Kenneth Branagh film. To many Alexander’s fans, playing Thor was a no-brainer. Alex’s Swedish, tall (6’4”), blond hair, blue eyes and all kinds of buff (not to mention sexy). The role went to Chris Hemsworth (he played George Kirk, Captain Kirk’s father in the new Star Trek film). Now, from what I’ve read online many AS fans are disappointed but aren’t that upset with the choice of Chris (Chris is a cutey in his own right).
Fangbangers.com, a Sookie Stackhouse & True Blood fansite (I recommend) gave me a shout out on their website! Are you a fan of Alexander Skarsgard? Well, this isn’t exactly Alex news, its more Camille news, but I wanted you to know anyway.
Alexander as Eric Northman in True Blood
True Blood released a ridiculous amount of promotional items on the web (new season starts June 14th at 9pm on HBO):
Terricka's photo with actors from the True Blood set, Alex on the right
Actress Terricka Hudson posted photos from the backstage of the True Blood set on her facebook page. She has one fantastic shot of Alexander in his Eric Northman costume (apparently they just filmed a bloody battle scene).
Alexander as Brad "Iceman" Colbert in Generation Kill
HBO submitted Alexander for Emmy consideration for Lead Actor for Generation Kill and Best Supporting Actor for True Blood. Let us all hope he gets nominated!
The fully bearded Alexander
The trailer for Alex’s next movie Beyond The Pole was released, it’s scheduled to be in theatres later this year. Watch below:
Metropia movie poster
The official movie trailer for Alex’s new animated movie Metropia was released. I have to say, I love listening to him speak. His voice is so soothing and I love when I can hear his accent on certain words!
A screen capture of Alexander in Lady GaGa's video
This week Lady GaGa launched her new music video for the song Paparazzi, which featured Alexander. I have to admit, I’m not a fan of the video. I enjoyed watching Alex (no doubt about that), but I just feel like something was off. Or maybe it’s just that it’s an odd video. And on TOP of that, they mis-spell his name in the opening credites of the video. What do you think? Watch below:
