Great news @ 07/14/2011 at 12:33 am

That’s great news about Alex PRODUCING and STARRING in this Viking movie! Hope this is the start to a very long career in Hollywood for him. His Viking scenes in TB are always great to watch. As long as he gets to speak a little Swedish in this movie ;)

Great news for Joe too, TB has opened up many doors for him.

so excited for alexander’s movie!!! love that he will be getting more time on the big screen!

# 5

ohh Viking skarsgard! Yum

# 6

This is pretty awesome. I wonder how big it’s going to be. I’ll definitely watch it!

I can’t get enough of the super-talented and hunky Skarsgard! So yay for that! Joe on the other hand is simply the worst actor on TB. I don’t care how hot the guy is, he’s a flippin’ bore! The dude’s working with a bunch of rock stars, and he manages to sound, look as interesting as wet paint. Even the actress who plays his fiancee is head and shoulders above him in the talent category. Get rid of him! No loss whatsoever.

Congratulations to Alex and Joe, but I’m more excited for Alex because he is my favorite. :)

Joe makes me HWL

Bad move for ASkars. He needs to do more commercial projects first, before he does movies that no one is going to see or care about.

Would let them do me both simultaneously….

Well Alexander better hurry then and bulk up a whole heck of lot more or hit the steroids for some more testosterone really fast if he has to, because Vikings sure didn’t have such a skinny amount of muscle or such flat pectorals.I sure wouldn’t find 6’4″ Vikings looking like sleek and slim metro sexual rock stars too convincing!

I think Alex’s project sounds pretty fab :D

@Real Men:
Re AS bulking up more to look like a ‘real man’.
He’s said before that he’s naturally lanky and finds it hard to put on weight. I hope he doesn’t go down the Joe M route as Joe’s looking freakishly like a bodybuilder rather than just a fit bloke.
AS looked great in GK, better than he does now. Give him the opportunity to drink beer like a Viking (without all the labling of him being a drunk if he has more than one beer) and he’ll fill out in no time.
It’ll be interesting to see him in a lead role, pretty much carrying the project instead of the ensemble pieces he’s done so far (in English anyhow; I’ve not seen any of the swedish stuff).

Good Joe is doing something different. With his average talent he’ll need to be careful not to get typecast in thug roles for life.

Alexander plays always the same character…

@Real Men: And you know this because you’re such an expert on the physiology of Vikings?

@Marieme: I completely agree. He doesn’t have fans, he has oglers. There’s a big difference.

Congrats for the guys! And once again, you’re welcome Jared. I posted this announcement, for Alex at least, yesterday afternoon.

He has fans that like to ogle! @ 07/14/2011 at 12:42 pm

AS has lots of fans that love him and his work. He has fans all over the world now that TB is pretty much seen everywhere. There is more to AS than good looks. He is talented too. Good luck with your new projects AS. He definitely deserves it.

AS’s mom is a viking drunk! HA HA!
Just like mine…

Alex’s mom is a drunk. HA HA!
Just like mine…

@He has fans that like to ogle!: I wasn’t talking about AS. I was talking about Joe. Even if I thought Alex was ugly, I would still be his fan b/c he’s a really good actor, and he does a great job of bringing Eric to life. I don’t think Joe’s necessarily a bad actor, but he’s not doing anything w/ Alcide. He should spend less time in the gym and more time trying to make Alcide likable. That character is dull. Look at Lafeyette or Franklin from last season. They’re less significant to the story, but they stick in your head b/c the actors interpret the characters well. Alcide is flat, plain and simple.

Alex was actor who slept with his co-workers.Now he is a producer,who will be sleeping with his co-workers.A zebra never changes its stripes.

She Stinks! @ 07/14/2011 at 7:12 pm

Someone should tell this man that being in a movie with JHO Bag is bad move. She’s box office poison and will ruin this film.
