    Alex in five years !!!

    Tina Says:

    I think the costume department on this movie is doing a good job making Alex look like a slubby suburban American husband. It’s so funny. I’d still hit that!

    It will be the “True Blood cast: where are they now?”

    on the 7th pic is he eating something or is he trying to wipe his mouth?
    maybe someone left lipstick on? interesting…:P

    You can’t take the hotness out of the guy, no matter how hard you try. The twinkly eyes are still visible.

    Sometimes, at certain angles, he looks like Bill Pullman.

    Camille Says:

    Wow the makeup department is doing a good job making him look tired and ordinary. That hair colour does nothing for him, and maybe that’s the point. He still looks great no matter what they try.

    Pap Says:

    How much does he pay to have papps follow him – geez so obvious.

    Al’s lookin’ kinda shabby there.

    @Pap: So obviously on a movie set, as opposed to say, a nail salon or a vet’s office.

    And where is Kate’s new post–I’m sure it will be along any moment…..

  14. 14
    Camille Says:

    @dailynightly:
    She had one prior to his. Cheap nail salon visit, you know, cause the paps just happen to hang out there.

  15. 15
    wtf? Says:

    @dailynightly:
    actually there was one before that one like 3-4 posts away

  16. 16
    Natalie Says:

    Actually, two AlexS post and two KateBosworth post… being honest I believe this is no coincidence. The reactions are funny:
    - “oooh, a new alex post!”
    - “she calls the paps!!!”

    hey guys what for the thumbs down? in the first i was just curious and in the second informative so…

    ladybug Says:

    @wtf?: Thumb troll.

    Natalie, to repeat from post 12: he’s on a movie set, she’s papped leaving a nail salon. There’s actually a difference there, he’s working and she’s not (ok she’s working if you count calling the paps and posing for them as ‘work’).

  20. 20
    wtf? Says:

    @ladybug: just asking! you don’t have to label people

  21. 21
    Natalie Says:

    @ladybug: oh, dear… Let me explain it to you:
    they have the same publicist and JJ always make posts about them at the same time… it doesn’t matter what they’re doing.
    Alex has gas station, eating sandwiches, runing and more ‘nail salon’ equivalent post …

  22. 22
    Camille Says:

    @wtf?:
    No, she means there is someone who goes around giving people thumbs down all the time. People refer to that person as a thumb troll.

  23. 23

    We’re conditioned by the showbiz media to see hotness where there is none. Few celebs are truly exceptional looking. Most are within the realm of average.

    ladybug Says:

    @Natalie: Don’t ‘dear’ me, sweetheart.
    I’m well aware that they have the same publicist. But see, AS has a career, and well, she doesn’t really. So he is going to get papped, without having to actually call on them. She, OTOH, since she hasn’t been in a successful movie in years, and is no longer dating a more famous individual, is going to have to call the paps. I know, it’s hard to understand that not everyone’s a famew**** like KB, but not everyone is.

    Oooh, Natalie’s discovered how to bold in her posts!

    Jenna Says:

    I love Alex. I’m interested in this movie and excited that Paula Patton was cast as his wife (or lover).

    Why do people even respond to the trolls? It makes them post even more. Ignore them and they more on. Never understood the motivation to look for articles and spend so much time posting comments about people you dislike.

    Annie Says:

    Not digging the red hair on Alex. I like him best with his natural blondish brown color. He’s still yummy in whatever though.

    lafamepoma Says:

    Did he died his hair? it looks more brunette from when he was shooting ” What maise knew”

  38. 38
    ladybug Says:

    @Annie: That’s not red, that’s a very dull brown. lafamepoma, yes they are either dying or rinsing his hair for this role.
    Jenna, you are correct, I shouldn’t respond to the troll(s).

    he still looks good even with his mouth full and its nice to see him smiling again!!!

    cute though the wrinkles under his eyes make him look more like 45. Like him better as a blond though the color must be for the show.

    Mar Says:

    It’s good to see him busy like this. It means that we’re gonna see him more in the big screen. And that will be a treat. :)

  42. 42
    Tina Says:

    It looks like they are emphasizing his under eye bags to make his character look really worn out. Alex’s character has a lot of problems in this movie!

  43. 43
    Camille Says:

    I wonder if his character is supposed to be older, like middle aged. They certainly don’t have him looking like a young man with the clothes and whatnot.

  44. 44
    ladybug Says:

    @Camille: It’ll be interesting to see how the look translates to film. It really isn’t the outfit of a mid 30′s suburban man, even one down one his luck. Those are grandpa jeans or something.

  45. 45
    Camille Says:

    @ladybug:
    That’s my though too, that they’re making him older. Even people I know that have money troubles, that are in their 30′s like me, don’t wear that kind of stuff. You can still buy cooler looking clothes for cheap.

  46. 46
    Really? Says:

    I read posts at JJ and female celebrities are always accused of calling the paps but the guys never are. And this is by women! Women bashing women! Please people, celebs aren’t calling paps except maybe “reality” show celebs.

  47. 47
    seeshay Says:

    from Maisie to this look LOL. In Maisie he looked ten years younger — here ten years older. Of course he’s still hot but it’s like one of those hidden pictures things like kids have, you have to search really hard to find it through the dyed hair and tummy padding.

    He’s GORGEOUS!
    Love him and his movies.
    Actually, I don’t care about his movies.
    I just think he’s SEXY!

  53. 53
    Jjbc Says:

    He is beautiful both inside and out. A real cut above all the body builder dark and dirty clones in the movies right now. At least he can act which is more then I can say for the biggest share of the muscle bound set.

  54. 54
    Passing by Says:

    @Jjbc:
    half of your coment is kinda weird… (dark and dirty? I don’t get it )
    the other half is hilarious… Skarstrash isn’t part of the muscle-head on screen??
    BHAHAHAHA.

    chelle Says:

    I think you guys are right about the wash out color. There is a picture on santress website taken yesterday and he looks blonde. If I put that crap in my hair it wouldn’t wash out and who knows what color it would be …..oh the amazing power of highlighted hair!!!

  56. 56
    ladybug Says:

    @chelle: Plus the Santress pic looks post-wash, so it’d be back to his natural color

  57. 57
    Camille Says:

    @chelle:
    It probably comes out in the shower I’m assuming. The makeup department must do it daily.

    ladybug Says:

    @Kelly: He was rumored for The East, but I’ve seen nothing confirming that he’s actually in the movie.
    Camille, It’s nice that Melancholia is playing at another festival. Plus, a chance to see the non-schlubby ASkars.

  64. 64
    Canuck Says:

    @Kelly: The down side of that is that he’s not going to have much time to head home to Sweden.

  65. 65
    Camille Says:

    @ladybug:
    I’m looking forward to seeing him in another suit, and to see what Kristen wears. I loved what she wore to TIFF. I’m glad he at least gets to do some promotion for it. Kirsten did the premiere in London this week. I bet Alex wishes he could be in Europe doing some of it, but he’s just way too busy.

    @Canuck:
    He could probably use a trip home. Poor guy looks tired. He had like two days off in between movies, and this one looks like a lot of night shots so he’s probably working late.

  66. 66
    Canuck Says:

    @Camille: Yeah, a week or two in no-pap Normal Land would probably be a relief.

  67. 67
    Canuck Says:

    @Alexander Skarsgard is balding: Pretty hard to stalk somebody when you’re several thousand miles away, don’t you think?

    Jamie Says:

    You know what’s really annoying? People who have nothing to asdd to the thread except to call other people names. There seriously needs to be an ignore feature on here, especially for people who come on here for no other reason than to bash posters. You’d think the continual deleting of said comments would give people a hint, but sadly that doesn’t seem to be the case.

    He is tired looking, but they film long hours. Sometimes you can be on a movie set for 16 hours a day. It’s got nothing to do with pestering people, since I’m pretty sure most of the people posting on here are nowhere near Alexander.

  69. 69
    Camille Says:

    Looks like Ellen Page is joining The East. So far, it still says Alex is going to be in the movie.

    @Camille: I also wonder where they’ll film, it would have nice for Nashville to have it there.
    Also, I think the blue sweats are better than the grandpa jeans:

    Canuck Says:

    I see that Michael Nyqvist is also in this. Do you think they tease each other about the number of times each has respectively been voted “Sweden’s sexiest man”?
    Michael: Two times, m****f***er, two times!
    Alex: Pffft.. Five times old man…five times…
    Michael: Yeah… Come talk to me when you’ve got Daniel Craig playing YOU in a film.
    Alex: you’re sooooo lucky it wasn’t my Dad playing you in a film.

  76. 76

    @Canuck:
    Yeah no kidding. Nothing ever gets filmed where I live though, except that Brad Pitt movie, oh and Snow Day. LMAO!

    They got deleted? What for? Is that a copyright thing? They’re just sitting around, nothing special. Sheesh!

  79. 79

    @Camille: Yep, got deleted. They were originally on the Expressen.se site, and I know some sites did credit them, but perhaps they complained.

    seeshay Says:

    I am thrilled to see that the “the East” has been confirmed for him. I think that’s a huge step forward for him, being the lead, and sounds like a very interesting character and story. He did so well in Straw Dogs making Charlie seem part good at least, I think he’ll do the same in this one and make the bad guy terrorist seem sympathetic. Plus, if everyone’s falling in love with him in it., he ought to be looking a lot better than he is in this Disconnect movie.

  81. 81
    Canuck Says:

    @ladybug: @Camille: Yeah they were having a good laugh. Chances are they probably know each other, I don’t think the acting community in Sweden is that large. Nyqvist was great in the Swedish version of the Millenium series. No way I’m going to see the new version, I doubt they could have done a better job on it.

  82. 82
    ladybug Says:

    @Canuck: I am going to see Fincher’s version. I liked the Swedish version but I think there’s room for improvement.

  83. 83
    Canuck Says:

    @ladybug: It was actually a stretch for me to see the Swedish one, it’s very rare that I’ll go and see the film of a book that I’ve read. Most of the time what I’ve pictured in my head is way better than what they manage to put on film. And I kind of like the “minimalism” that European films have, HW doesn’t often seem to get that more isn’t always better, it’s just more.

  84. 84
    ladybug Says:

    @Canuck: With the Millennium Trilogy I don’t think anyone will ever match what’s in my head.
    Though I’ll be interested to see how Stellan does as Martin Vanger in Fincher’s version.

  85. 85
    Camille Says:

    @Canuck:
    I liked the Swedish versions too, though I often wonder why they left out so many parts of the books that I found to be important. I wonder if Fincher’s version will put some of that back in. It’s always hard to make a movie when your source material is like 800 pages long. It’s almost impossible to cram that into a 2 hour movie.

    @ladybug:
    I think Stellan will be a great Vanger. I have to say Daniel Craig matches the description of Michael in the book better to me than Nyqvist does. That’s my opinion though. Michael is supposed to have sandy blonde hair and so was Vanger, but neither of them did in the Swedish versions. Plus they really downplayed Berger in the Swedish movies, and she seemed pretty important in the books, so I’m interested to see what happens there.

  86. 86
    Camille Says:

    @seeshay:
    I’m happy he’s getting to do it too. To me, this is the movie that seems to have the most interesting and exciting plotline. Plus it’s a starring role, and that’s always good. I think he’ll get to showcase so much of his talen with it.

  87. 87
    Macy Says:

    Not really related, but I found Lainey’s comments about Bosworth setting up Bloom for that pap sighting a few months ago interesting.

  88. 88
    Canuck Says:

    @Macy: You’re right, totally not related. Done is done…@Camille: Very much agree about Berger, but I doubt HW is going to rectify that, strong women roles are few and far between in most HW movies.

  89. 89
    ladybug Says:

    @Canuck: I thought the Swedish movies played down Annika’s role as well, even in the last movie.
    And in reading the cast list I wonder how I missed Joel Kinnaman playing Christer and Goran Višnjić playing Dragan?

  90. 90
    Camille Says:

    @Canuck:
    I felt kind of ripped off that they’d all but cut Berger out of the first movie. Then his affair with Cecilia wasn’t even mentioned. I found that odd too, plus not even mentioning Anita and how she went to London and then died of Cancer and Harriett took over her identity was totally left out.I always found that odd because it’s an important part of how she was able to get off the island and continue her life undetected. They totally glossed over the exposing of Weinerstrom too. In the second movie they leave out Lisbeth’s time in Grenada, and the whole part about the creepy doctor, and her surgeries. They just leave out some parts that I find were interesting and intregal to the story. Oh well.

  91. 91
    Canuck Says:

    @Camille: Ok, maybe there WERE some bits that were a bit too minimalist :). I’m just picturing the HW version being lots of shock scenes, be they violence, blood, gre etc… They ALWAYS tend to go way over the top in things like that.

  92. 92
    ladybug Says:

    @Camille: For the movie, leaving out Lisbeth’s year off made sense. There’s almost too much detail to put into a 2 hour movie. Though they could have found time for a little more of the policewomen, Sonja Modig and Monica Figuerola.

    I wonder what they did to his hair. It usually looks so soft and shiny. Makes me wonder if they put a wig on him. I think they`re trying to make him look ordinary and very unsexy for this role, but it’s not really working. Love this man and can’t wait to see more of his movies.
