Alexander Skarsgard 'Had Strong Opinions' About 'Battleship'

Alexander Skarsgard leaves Il Pastaio after having lunch on Tuesday (June 28) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The director for the 34-year-old Swedish actor’s upcoming film, Battleship, recently chatted about why he cast Alex in the action movie.

“I was first made aware of Alex Skarsgard by the 15 women who work in my office who came in collectively as one with a picture of Alex and said, ‘He is going to be in Battleship. It’s nonnegotiable,’” Peter Berg told the L.A. Times with a laugh.

“When they left, I pulled up some True Blood [clips] and really liked the show and thought that he was completely right for this character. I had a great meeting with him – he and I spent a day on an aircraft carrier in San Diego. After that I was convinced he was the right guy for the film. He had a real sense of what the purpose of that role was. He had really strong opinions and ideas,” Peter added.
