Alexander Skarsgard: I'm A Drug To Myself

Alexander Skarsgard: I'm A Drug To Myself

True Blood hunk Alexander Skarsgard joins fellow drama actors for an Emmy Roundtable at Chateau Marmont on April 26 in Los Angeles.

The Hollywood Reporter organized the sit-down, which also included Lost‘s Matthew Fox, Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm, Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston, Men of a Certain Age‘s Ray Romano and White Collar‘s Matt Bomer.

When asked if he watches his own show, Alex shared, “I do. I’m like a drug to myself. (laughs) I did movies in Sweden before I came over here, and I would never watch dailies because I didn’t want to see myself in the character. But that obviously had to change (on a series) because I couldn’t wait seven years until the show’s over to go back and watch it. I still don’t watch the monitors; but when the season airs, I do watch it.”

I like Alex and all but... @ 05/24/2010 at 10:35 pm

You have ALL of those great guys in the room and you choose to focus on Alexander??? Why not let it be a general blog…about the men in the video. Or Matthew Fox as LOST just had it’s finale last night. Alex is NOT the only actor in the world. He’s cute but, geesh, so is Matt Bomer.

I think Alex is quirky funny. He makes jokes about himself, and I like that. He is a talented actor and hot. Bomer and Hamm are too. Ray Romano is like a lovable muppet. All these guys are great.

F-ck that ****. Where’s Thomas Gibson from Criminal Minds?? After his performance in the 100th episode that Emmy should be HIS.

I like that Alex is self deprecating…it keeps him normal.

# 9

Alex has a great sense of humor! He’s very charming.

I’m at my cottage on my blackberry and I can’t view the videos. If someone finds them on you tube I would greatly appreciate it if someone could post the links in the comments section. BB really needs to get flash capabilities. Thank you sooooooo much.

Matt Bomer makes the others look older, he looks like so perfect

Why wasn’t I in that room :(

Nice interview and I love Alex’s self deprecating style.

Bomer is cute but he looks too perfect, like a Ken doll which isn’t sexy…

LOL That Alex guy has such a small head, does not look good with brown hair why is he no longer blonde? Matt Bomer looks hot!!!

Ummmm Alex and Matt Bomer would be a hot couple! Would not mind to hit either one of their asses!!! Yummy………

Alex is funny! Great video of the guys

Jon Hamm is HOT!
Nice and funny interview.

I think the focus here should be on the OTHER actors around the table. Alex is a baby compared to what Bryan Cranston, Matthew Fox and Ray Romano have achieved.

Matt Bomer is so gorgeous! <3 That’s all I have to say, lol.

What a great gathering. Really interesting stuff here and in the transcript.

Romano was very funny.

Bomer is so beautiful there are no words.


@Great vid!!!!: I know it is silly, but the shine is off him now..he has made too much of a jerk of himself in RL!
What a shame, I really can’t appreciate him anymore.

So sick of Alex and his fakeness. What about the 2 Matthew’s? They’re hot!

Subliminal Snark? @ 05/25/2010 at 12:06 pm

Well I guess Alex IS a great actor after all…not even one flinch at that “Griffith Park” comment…too funny indeed !

Why always focused on Alex?? I agree the shine is off him now after his Bosworth problem and all his other douchebaggery. Why not focus on other actors?

@Great vid!!!!: oh come on, nobody at the table sitting said things that were of any substance in this interview. I like the fellas, but Hamm did a few sly one-liners, Fox spoke about his distress, and Bomer said a few intellectual words. At least Alex contributed with humor, a glimpse in the eye and his wonderfully silly laugh.

and please not the “alex is a douchebag” again, get over your obsession with Kate! He’s supernice and he’s got lots of integrity irl and you are always judging him based on pap-pics of him and Kate. He does have a life and a personality outside of pap-pics with Kate on Just Jared..
