Alexander Skarsgard suits up for a Cinema Society screening of his new movie, Straw Dogs, at the Tribeca Grand Hotel on Thursday (September 15) in New York City.

The 35-year-old Swedish actor was spotted out earlier in the day at Cafe Gitane, one of his favorite lunch spots.

FYI: Alexander is wearing a navy cotton two-button notch lapel suit, navy shirt, navy tie and black leather shoes all from the Fall 2011 Calvin Klein collection. He accessorized with the IWC Pilot Chrono wath.

    So handsome!

  • Avery

    He looks great of course. Just a little uncomfortable maybe. He’s almost blushing in one of the pics. Anyways, the break up was good for both of them honestly. She’s been looking much healthier since then. He’s been looking happier as well.

    @Alexander Skarsgard is balding:

    By date you mean your hand, right?

  • Nelly Fang

    What a stunning homosexual!!

  • Jen

    @Strawberry:
    Could have 2 hot dates if that’s the case!!! (unless using one makes you feel like you’re cheating on the other!)

  • Jessie

    Alex looks great if a little bit tense. I imagine it’s a bit awkward. The afterparty, if there is one, will probably be too. I wonder if he brought a buffer?

    Looks like at least one of Alex’s TB co-stars showed up. Carrie Preston was there.

    Alex looks good but he looks a bit tense to me. Maybe he just wants it to be over. Nice of Carrie Preston to show up!

  • I heart u

    Alexander Skarsgard he looks great but tense.

    @Jessie: No “happy cast all poses together” pix in there.

  • Canuck

    Oh and whoever is choosing what he wears for public appearances these days… Yay you!

    “Nonetheless, Skarsgard remains the film’s standout performer, limning the only character to have been significantly deepened from the original. The hulking Swede nails his Southern accent without overdoing it, and his performance implies a depth and internal logic to Charlie’s actions that the film doesn’t necessarily grasp. ”

    @slig o: What he doing with dogs?? Or what your mean he doing?

  • lila

    he’s so hot!!! I’ve been to sweden and actually swedish guys are not my kind, but this one is a viking god ahah! he’s so sexy

  • eh???

    “a depth and internal logic to Charlie’s actions that the film doesn’t necessarily grasp.”

    What does this mean? That rape has logic??!!! ……. Stupid and pointless misogyny dressed up as entertainment.

  • Canuck

    @eh???: I think they mean that Skargard manages to give his character some complexity that allow you to see why he does what he does, no matter how wrong it is, rather than just playing Charlie as a one dimensional thuggish brute.

  • ladybug

    @Canuck: Maybe Cher helped him? :)
    As mentioned on the other thread, I suspect the cast members are happy that the movie is finally out, two years after finishing it, and that the premiere is over with and they can all go forward and all that happy stuff.

  • Canuck

    @ladybug: He, I kind of doubt Cher is getting anywhere near the guy. Maybe he’s choosing for himself? I’m sure that having this over and done with is a relief. It almost looks as if he was on the red carpet at a different time than the rest of them, he didn’t pose with any of them, did he? If ever there was a good indication that he is avoiding his ex, that would be it.

  • ladybug

    @Canuck: It doesn’t appear he even posed with Marsden.
    As for clothing, he probably does get suggestions, but I suspect he chooses for himself, even for the more dressy events.

  • Lilla

    Was James Woods there?

  • Canuck

    @ladybug: I can’t find a pic of him posing with any of the others. Maybe he hit the red carpet first, posed, went into the theater and then directly out the back door while the rest were having pix taken.

    The NYT’s AO Scott sort-of likes the movie:
    “Mr. Lurie’s movie does not quite succeed on its own, though it is pulpy and brutal and at times grotesquely comical. The story does not cohere, and the performances are uneven. But as a piece of film criticism — as a conversation with, and interpretation of, an earlier film — it is intriguing.”

  • rapist character

    He say he is sorry for his rapist character.
    DEAD TO ME.

  • Mia

    Does this man know how to wear a suit or what? So sexy!!! Must have been awkward for him with his ex there and all. The split may not have been as amicable as some want to think. Otherwise, they would have all posed together. I am very happy for him and his rising success in this country.

    @rapist character: Why, were you thinking he’d say he admired the guy?

  • ladybug

    @rapist character: Sorry for, sympathy for, understanding of, etc., does not indicate approval of.

    @Canuck: @ladybug:
    wow, you are like his rottweilers. O.o
    I don’t care what you think, but that comment and some answers to magazines (about violence and his love life), makes me find him a bit creepy.
