Alexander Skarsgard: Extra Padding for 'Disconnect'

Alexander Skarsgard walks around the set of his new movie, Disconnect, on Monday (September 26) in New York City.

The 35-year-old actor, wearing some extra padding around his stomach, stars in the thriller about a group of people searching for human connections in today’s wire world.

Deadline reports that Max Theriot recently joined the film’s cast, which already includes Jason Bateman and Paula Patton.

Max can next be seen opposite Jennifer Lawrence in the horror flick, House at the End of the Street, out April 2012.

    OMG! Even like this he’s still adorkable!

  • Lilla

    He’s still sexy with the fake weight.

  • ladybug

    They are trying to take away his hotness, aren’t they?

  • ladybug

    @seeshay: The 25 million figure is from here:

    A young, urban crowd is expected to show up this weekend to see the film, which was produced by Sony’s Screen Gems label for about $25 million, according to producer Marc Frydman.

    @ladybug: took away his pretty hair :-[

  • Canuck

    My pillow! :)))

  • knackered giraffe

    @ladybug They’re giving it the old college try, but it’s not quite working. ;)

  • ladybug
  • Canuck

    Ok, there’s one or two pics where they managed to make him look tired and worn down. The rest, he just looks like a great big cuddly Dorkasaurus. His hair is going to be fried from all of the dye jobs :(

  • no disguising it

    aaaaannndddd…he’s STILL hot!

  • kitty

    still would

  • knackered giraffe

    @ladybug. You read my mind. That’s the one! Yep, dorkasaurus or not, I’d still hit it!

  • Jen

    I’d still hit it!

  • Gina the 1st

    These pictures crack me up. I saw some other pictures of him on the set of this movie and his wardrobe is awful! Which I guess is what they are going for….can’t wait until for pics of him back in his own clothes or better yet Eric’s wardrobe…or lack there of!

  • ladybug

    @knackered giraffe: This one’s not so bad either, since it shows some chest:
    http://justjared.buzznet.com/photo-gallery/2584297/alexander-skarsgard-extra-padding-disconnect-11/
    Gina the 1st, I wonder if he’s going to keep any of this wardrobe, if only to remind himself of the hideousness of it.

  • AbFab

    Yeah, they’re somehow trying to temper the hotness. Well, not working.

  • Camille

    Wow, they’ve definitely dyed his hair. I hate that colour but I suppose they wanted it to look as mousy as possible, seeing as his wardrobs and the way they styled his hair screams mousy suburban dork. LOL! He still looks hot though, even with the fake gut. Those jeans, yikes!

  • Camille

    I have to laugh at the KB post that was immediately following this one. New photos of Alex = KB clinging to her new victim I guess.

  • chelle

    @Camille: I totally just saw that too ..keep clinging ho!!

    From the waist down he’s dressed like my dad! Yikes!!

  • Camille

    @chelle:
    The wedding band and some new fake nails by the looks of it. Ugh!

  • ladybug

    @Camille: He’s playing a former Marine. I think I prefer this Marine look for him:

  • Doreen

    Alexander still looks great despite his bad outfit and false belly. No matter what they do, we all know how gorgeous he truly is.

  • knackered giraffe

    @ladybug I spotted that one too! The hotness was trying to escape that shirt.

    @chelle The only thing missing? Mandals.

  • Camille

    @ladybug:
    Yeah I know, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he has to be as mousy looking as possible. I’m sure lots of former marines are hot and have cool wardrobes. They just want to dork him up. LOL! Maybe that’s why his wife becomes uninterested.

  • Camille

    @knackered giraffe:
    Mandals with socks pulled up. Ugh! Black ones with white socks. LOL

  • The knuckleheads have moved

    Alexander Skarsgard seems like a sweet guy. I can’t even imagine what he would think if he realized some of his fans are so mean to others on this very site. I think he would be kinda embarassed for those who do. Be as good a person I think Alexander must be

  • Oprah

    Still good looking.

  • http://gossip-celebrity-news.com GCN

    Not sure what is going on with his posture… he lost a lot of weight…
    still looks good though!

  • ladybug

    @Camille: I have a mental image of whoever is playing his wife watching GK and thinking: what happened to my hot Marine!?

  • Camille

    @ladybug:
    No kidding! I would be sad if I went from six pack Brad, so beet gut Schleb.

  • Camille

    Alex was hanging out with Kristen Wiig after the SNL party last Saturday. Yay, I love her! And is this the return of the semi sheer shirts?

    @The knuckleheads have moved:

    Get to stepping! Begone KB troll! Nobody likes KB…not even her friends or else they would have gone to her Nylon party.
    ***We reserve the right to be nasty to talentless, fameho users and their trolls.***

  • ladybug

    @Camille: I can only hope it’s the return of the semi-sheer shirts. Perhaps he’ll overcompensate for the dorky movie wardrobe by having an even more clingy and revealing personal wardrobe? Please? (Yes, I’m shallow)

  • Camille

    @ladybug:
    I sure hope so! I wonder if he’s wearing his new necklace yet.

  • The knuckleheads are here

    @ ICK! I feel sorry for you. Even on a Aleaxnder Skarsgard thread you can’t control your mean spirit. Haters have something rotting in their hearts……. Enjoy this thread, Skarsgard seems like a gentle soul, not someone like you.

  • justsoyouknow

    Let’s bring this back to the exciting thing here, is that AS is getting to do a role that he always speaks about- not being just the good looking guy. It’s an interesting role and by the pics it looks like he’s willing to put alot into the character.

  • ICK!

    @The knuckleheads are here:

    Believe me if AS had someone like me in his life that talentless ho would have been showed the door a long time ago. He IS waaay too nice.

  • @justsoyouknow

    I respected your comment to “bring this thing back etc”. but ICK! clearly can not stop, so I will answer

    @ICK! Just enjoy this thread. This is surely the place for you to say all the good things you feel. Do yourself and Alexander Skarsgard a favor and try to be nicer. GNight

  • Iyccah

    I thought Alexander left NY for Los Angeles like 2 weeks ago..? Glad to hear he is close tho. He needs to come to pa and let me show him how to have fun! All in all thought don’t get me wrong Alex is sexy and I would love to touch my lips to his but 5 times REALLY…he isn’t that sexy ok yes he is but 5 times that’s utterly sickening. I mean I have seen Wayy hotter guys than Alex but his charm, intellect, and Chrisma are what tie the man into a nice neat stack of meat. I he can sweep me off my feet any day.

  • Jessie

    @Iyccah:
    What? He’s been in NY since the end of July. He only left for two days to go to Toronto to TIFF.

  • ICK!

    @@justsoyouknow: @The knuckleheads are here:

    Keep changing names. You’re someone who idolizes a person that screwed over foster kids. None of her fans have ever addressed that. Rational people take the good with the bad. You people act like it never happened, therefore you’re not someone whose opinion I gave a crap about..
    .
    Your delusions are beyond bizarre. You try to twist things in such irrationals manners to fit your skewed view of KB. It’s one or the other, you can’t have it both ways. You denounce people’s statements that Alex broke up with KB long before the announcement but currently you’re gushing that KB is so “in love’ and happy with Michael Polish. If that’s the case the fact that she was seen with Polish right after the break up must mean she’s a manhopping ho that was so “in love” with Alex the week before. Can’t have it both ways to suit your needs.

  • justsoyouknow

    @ick and @knuckleheads- I wasn’t talking to either of you specifically just trying to get away from this whole KB and AS debate and giving a thumbs up to the fact that AS is looking to be doing a interesting 360 turn from the looks of this character. That’s all. Just giving props to AS.

  • ICK!

    I have nothing but praise for AS broadening his range and hope he gets great reviews for these parts. There was never a need for that troll to say anything beyond that. KB should never have been brought up…that was the troll’s post regarding Alex’s mean fans was about. She’s a non issue that quickly hopped on a new man after Alex kicked her to the curb.

  • ICK!

    @Wiley:

    “Alex has nothing but love for Kate”

    So much love he avoided her on the SD red carpet….and everywhere else. I guess she’ll stage a friendly pap set up like she did with OB in four years…not that anyone will care.
    .
    Isn’t it funny in all the “two years” she made not one Swedish friend except for Surfer Dude? Lisa was never seen with her after The Village Idiot which is weird considering how chummy they were in the beginning.

  • OutoftheLoop

    Alex got a new necklace? How do you guys know these things??? I feel so left out!

  • OutoftheLoop

    @ICK!:

    I agree with you. When I saw these pictures the firt thing I thought was that he is putting his money where his mouth is. He doesn’t want to be known for just his pecks. I am glad someone is giving him the chance to be more than the hunky guy. Now, let’s hope it’s a good part for him.

    And let’s hope he get’s a comedy soon. He is a great comic actor.

  • hobieluv83

    Note to self, he still looks good chubby and with brown hair.

  • Canuck

    @OutoftheLoop: I’d love to see him in a comedy.

  • Marie

    I love that colour on his hair!!!

  • Coroba

    @Canuck:

    Heh, thats not his hair, its a wig. There are pics of him coming out from the SNL afterparty last Saturday and its his own short blond hair. ;)
