Alexander Skarsgard 'Had Strong Opinions' About 'Battleship'

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.

    Ah JJ, always behind the gun, hey? He looks great but man does the guy ever eat at home? He was out yesterday with JR and now again today. Maybe he’s getting a kitchen reno. LOL

    @LOLz: She’s working, darn it, she’s working. Photo shoot and all that. Really.
    And whatever happened to him being at Joan’s all the time?

    Camille Says:

    Methinks he’s avoiding that particular spot due to a certain someone keeping an eye out.

    ladybug Says:

    @Camille: Though interestingly she’s not been papped there either, since she’s been back.
    As for his kitchen, I’m beginning to suspect he doesn’t actually have one, he just has a fridge where he keeps water and beer.

    @LOLz: I know! It’s making me believe that they might have actually separated.

    LOLz Says:

    @ ladybug 7 Haha! you know that’s NOT the reason why… but that was funny.
    @tami 10 This is what I was thinking too and it’s starting to look real.

    Yummy! By the way, these are a different set of pictures than the ones that Santress posted earlier, although she has now posted these.

    @LOLz: What, you don’t think she’s working? Cher tweeted about KB working yesterday, and if Cher tweeted it, it must be real.
    As for the possibility of a breakup, when ‘sources close to the couple (KB or Robin) release a statement that KB and AS haven’t been a couple for quite some time then I’ll believe it. And then KB’s ‘friends’ will mention that work schedules kept them apart and she was upset that he hung out with his friends all the time and that he snores and has a cubbyhole in his closet, blah blah.’

    Being a former member of the Swedish marines, Alex would likely have insight he could lend to the part. Looking forward to the flick.

    AS is so hot Says:

    So who did he have lunch with??

    PR Says:

    She who must not be named will pop up eventually I’d say, if only for the sake of publicity for SD. I think they are done though.

    ladybug Says:

    @Cheryl: It’ll be interesting if he mentions it if it had any impact. If I recall, he didn’t initially tell the producers of GK that he was a former member of the Swedish Marines because he felt it was such a different experience from being an American Marine.

    Ha, like a vampire house. I suspect he is one of those people who doesn’t like hanging out by himself at home, gets bored.

    Jessie Says:

    OMG one of those yuku chicks actually message Ransone on his twitter and asked all kinds of questions, like what did Alex order, etc. I hope she was being intentionally obtuse, because that’s effing weird and Ransone would probably either be annoyed or freaked out. Good grief. They’re also still speculating over there about a break up. More and more of them are thinking it’s done and that something has been off lately.

    I shudder to ask, but what’s yuku?

    @Jessie: He seems to be a very social person. Private, yet social.

    Seriously Says:

    @Jessie: The old forum or the new forum? I’ll have to go check:)

  23. 23
    Jessie Says:

    It’s a fan forum, there are a couple but the one I was referring to is the Swedish Delish one. Big KB buttkissers there.

    Yeah that’s my take on him too. He likes to be around people but doesn’t want randoms snooping into his stuff.

    ladybug Says:

    @Jessie: I’d be more interested in what he’s reading than what he’s eating. Yes, I like to make fun of the fact that he never seems to eat at home, but I really don’t need to know the menu items.
    I wonder if PJ Ransone is thinking ‘God Alex, some of your fans are little obsessive and nuts!’
    Also, I want PJ and Alex to work together again.

    Swedish Delish. It’s in it’s own thread.
