    Alexander Skarsgård Will 'Disconnect' In New Film From 'Murderball' Director Henry-Alex Rubin

    It seems Alexander Skarsgård is making the most of his time off from fang banging in "True Blood." The actor is currently shooting the indie flick “What Maisie Knew” with Julianne Moore and Steve Coogan, he just lined up "The East" with Brit Marling and now he's added another project to his slate fr...

    Alexander Skarsgård Headed To Brit Marling & Zal Batmanglij's 'The East'

    Swede Alexander Skarsgård first made his talent known on this side of the ocean as Sgt. Brad 'Iceman' Colbert in HBO's "Generation Kill" but these days he's better known as the devilishly handsome Eric Northman on "True Blood." Though he's yet to make a major presence on the big screen, he's got a few projects hitting theaters in the next little while that should bring more attention to the actor from those who don't watch the vampire series. Next month he'll be one of the main antagonists in the "Straw Dogs" remake and later this fall, he'll appear opposite Kirsten Dunst in a brief role in Lars Von Trier's "Melancholia" while next summer he'...

    'True Blood' Alexander Skarsgård To Produce & Star In Epic Viking Pic 'The Vanguard'

    Let the typecasting for Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgård’s Nordic good looks begin. As one of the leading men in the HBO hit series “True Blood," Skarsgård plays 1,000-year-old Viking warrior-turned-vampire Eric Northman. It looks like he will now play the part before being bitten as he is set to produce and star in a Viking epic along the “vein” -- no pun intended -- of “Gladiator” and “Braveheart.” The story will follow a pair of Viking brothers who embark on a journey back to their native Sweden after being exiled to North America, for reasons yet unknown. The working title of the pic is “The Vanguard” and it was successfully pitched to W...

    Trailer: Rod Lurie's Remake Of Sam Peckinpah's 'Straw Dogs' Throws White Trash Under The Bus

    "They're practically licking my body outside," Kate Bosworth says to her husband James Marsden in Rod Lurie's controversial remake of Sam Peckinpah's "Straw Dogs." Controversial because "Straw Dogs," an incredibly haunting and challenging domestic drama and psychological thriller by Peckinpah, is (r...

    Julianne Moore, Alexander Skarsgard & Steve Coogan To Star in 'What Maisie Knew'

    Scott McGehee and David Siegel are a curious directing pair. With a mere four films across over fifteen years, they've made consistently interesting work without ever quite knocking one out of the park. Their noirish racial-identity debut "Suture" is arguably their best -- championed by Steven Soderbergh, and with a terrific turn by Dennis Haysbert, it still holds up well today. Their long-awaited follow up "The Deep End" had another storming central performance, from Tilda Swinton, but had a more straightforward take on the genre, while kabbalistic spelling oddity "Bee Season," with Richard Gere, didn't really work, and the Joseph Gordon-Lev...
