    @Canuck:
    Wrong! Unlike your idol, Mr. Pitt actually has more credibility. Why would I insult someone who is an A list actor that does not insult to the industry?

    @DeeDee: It was at the top for a little bit yesterday (Monday). That decision-of what post gets a top article billing-is presumably done by a human, though I have no idea what the actual criteria might be, because it’s not number of comments.

  • chelle

    @Cafélady: I absolutely agree about the book Sookie too. I almost wish one of the vampires would drain her dry …she gets more and more indecisive about do I / don’t I care about him crap …I mean really would you have to think about it? BAD BOYS ARE THE BEST!!! LOL

  • Cafélady

    @chelle:
    Yes, it’s always the same with us woman, isn’t it? lol
    There they have possibly once an apparently ‘soft’ and sensitive men, and all what we ungrateful woman do, is to have a crush on the ‘bad boy’…lol
    But it shouldn’t be ‘too bad’ either…I can sometimes understand the poor guys…it can be hard sometimes to try to understand us woman…lol
    And no, you’re right – in case of eric northman there isn’t much to think about it…;)

  • STOP

    Seriously, you 5 ppl that comment constantly on this Phony need your own forum. I am not telling you ” regulars” to leave..oh no. I wouldn’t tell anyone to stop commenting…even though some of you “regulars” have been telling me. But it just only shows on how nutty this Reject’s fanbase is.
    ^^^^ Acceptable for you Texas Swede?
    @Texas Swede: Get this straight, you started with me. I was only DEFENDING myself. It was you who singled me out . You commented to me about separation of paragraphs and such. That I shouldn’t copy your way of separating para. Some how you own the way that you write and that you invented the English lang (sarcasm! I have to point this out because you have proven to me that you are not to bright). If you believe that ppl are going to confuse your posts with mine. Then it is true…Alex’s fanbase aren’t really as smart as they think they are.
    ^^^^ O.K?!
    I have seen GEN Kill. Hand down my favorite series. Someday I will buy the box-set. But that doesn’t mean Alex S. was any good or is good at all. I was more interested in other performances than his. I have never waited on line to see his flat-aZZ. So don’t assume that I saw him once and my anger formed because he rejected me. No so.
    ^^^^ Yeah!!!
    This actor is not that good. He has very little talent. “Daddy” has always helped him with his career. He smokes. Like a chimney. But you will never see that happening. Those pap shots are all stage. He is bi-er than bi. But you will never see him admit that. That is where his F.U. money goes. To cover his questionable lifestyle. Also, all of these ppl he hangs with all have questionable past as well. His last girlfriend was this inbreded socialite name Alexandra K. She is besties with Paris H and this really gross oil heir named Brandon D. Kate B is another person with a questionable past. I would be exhausted if I got into that. This guy is a selfish no talent loser. With a severe alchohol and a affinity for the white stuff. You all are wasting your time with this Doofus.
    ^^^^
    @ASIB Yeah, HA HA, Assbender. I totally agree with you.

  • texas swede

    @STOP: Yes I did and in comment #139 I believe I said to you that if it was a coincident I took it back. I also believe I referred to him not signing for the group you were in or not having time to sign for your group. I did not single you out on that one. Your other complaints about him are things only someone who has been around him in private settings would know. Smoking would not affect his talent, neither would being bi. Drinking has not diminished his work ethic. As for the white stuff Tell me who in Hollywood you can guarantee has not used it? These are all things only a very bitter person would spread about him and expect his fans to drop him for. I do not idolize the man I am a fan….there is a big difference.
    **************************************
    Now taking back the comment about your posting style is all you will get from me. I HAVE EXPLAINED WHY I CONSIDER YOU A TROLL AND YOU CONFIRM IT EVEN MORE WITH EACH POST YOU MAKE HERE. I have called you no names other than to infer you appear to be a bitter person. It has been an interesting volley with you but I prefer to debate someone who has facts to offer rather than rantings. So this is my last post to you. I am erasing you from my view and you no longer exist. Hope your outlook on life and your open mindedness towards others improves before you destroy your sanity. Everyone deserves to be happy on the inside. Goodbye and God Bless

    I assume that people posting their “knowledge” have proof of this. It’s pretty easy to write anything and then refuse to back things up. *eyeroll*

    @chelle:
    Sookie has been irritating me the past few books. She condems Eric for the stuff with Victor, yet her was her damn idea. She’s on her high horse and busy being a hypocrit. It’s annoying. I think Charlaine is having to eat crow with that review, becuase she’s been phoning it in the last few books and everyone knows it.

  • Camille

    @texas swede:
    I don’t think they know anything about anything. Like I said, it’s pretty easy to write whatever you want and not offer proof. Those are all pretty easy and popular things to write about any celebrity. It’s kind of lazy actually, there’s nothing interesting or new about those “complaints” they’re all pat.

  • ladybug

    @Camille: It’s like the blind items, almost all of them are the product of a fevered brain. But it’s rather easy to post such things on the internet and not have to offer proof.
    From Skarsgardnews’s tumblr in September: “Because there’s so much stupidity in the world that people can relate to this dribble and believe absolutely everything they read.”

    “I think Charlaine is having to eat crow with that review, becuase she’s been phoning it in the last few books and everyone knows it.”
    I think both CH and AB have been logically inconsistent with their creations, as already pointed out the behavior of most of the characters in the last book were totally out of character from what we’ve expected and seen. And not in a positive personal growth type way either.

  • Camille

    @ladybug:
    Eaxctly. Like I said, those are easy “problems” to talk about because almost every celeb has those ascribed to them. Even if some are true, like him being bi, who cares? That’s supposed to make him a bad person? It means no girl has a chance? Last I heard, bi meant both sexes. If he smokes, so what? Again, how does that make him a lesser individual? I highly doubt that one given how often he goes out, and not one single person has ever reported anything like that. Even if he does cover up media stuff, which I doubt, you can’t control the average Joe Blo and what they write on twitter, etc. Nobody has ever said he’s smoked. As for Alexandra Keating, last anyone heard he hung out with her one time. I’d hardly call her a girlfriend. Stretching lazily at best.
    I agree with the CH and AB stuff. I think AB doesn’t care what people want and I think CH is just pumping them out due to deadlines and cheques without putting enough thought into them.

  • texas swede

    A little off topic but has anyone seen “The Way Out”? It features Ed Harris and Gustav Skarsgard. It is the story of 6 men who escape a Russian prison camp in Siberia and walk over 4000 miles to freedom. It also has Collin Farrell. Very moving, very interesting. No sex or romance. Wonderful cinematography. I am sure there is a lot of cgi in it but you can tell the difference. Netflix has it to stream.

  • PRPro

    Its ‘The Way Back” and I agree its very good.

    Lawd there are some bitter trolls coming here just to vent their spleen and tarnish someone’s character. Get back under your rock.

  • chelle

    @PRPro: maybe they need spleen removed? I’ll prep the OR! I just did one 3 days ago ….

  • texas swede

    @chelle: ;)

  • texas swede

    @Camille: You are absolutely correct. The thing I do not get about these type of people is …if they do not like someone why waste their precious time to bother looking them up and posting about them. It is only taking time away from doing things that bring them joy. I have never bothered to look up something about someone I did not like (unless they shared a post with someone I did like).
    *************************
    So I am setting my troll phasers to silence and promise not to engage anymore for as long as possible. And you know I can holdout quite a while. So putting on my troll blinders and going to watch “Beyond The Pole” again.
    **************************
    PRPro…Thank you for the correction. Don’t know how I slipped up…lol. No matter is is a good movie and should be seen by all.

  • ladybug

    @Camille: “As for Alexandra Keating, last anyone heard he hung out with her one time. I’d hardly call her a girlfriend. Stretching lazily at best.” Considering the Keating story was a NYPost bit, mentioned in the headline roundup linked by SkarsgardNews, I have to wonder if they’ve ever even met. I think there was only one source for that particular story.
    Sort of like this New Year’s: A couple of tweets from a woman swearing that she was next to him at the gym on New Year’s and then a FB posting from a man claiming that he was with family and friends in Costa Rica on New Year’s morning. Not that the two are couldn’t have both happened, but logistics and time wise it would have been hard.
    @texas swede, I still haven’t watched Beyond the Pole, I feel I am being lax in acquiring AS movies. To compensate I’ll watch GenKill again.

  • Brunette

    Alex looks great! So nice to see him again :)

    Usually my post would stop there but I can’t resist adding after reading some of the comments. FYI to all the haters out there, no one cares. This man is an amazing actor who relays so much emotion and depth with every character he portrays. He is talented and if his father helped him at all along the way then more power to him. I’d do the same for my child. As for vices, everyone has them. Last I checked he’s a grown man and can do whatever he wants with his body. No one is perfect and this just makes him human like the rest of us.

    If you don’t like the guy than you are certainly entitled to your opinion. But perception is everything. For his true fans, like me and so many others, we will always be dedicated to our Askars. If anything the haters just make me love him more.

    For the real fans here, please excuse the rant. I just had to vent!

  • Oh no

    Alex looks amazing, Great to see him around I love him last season so much emotions. He was great, I saw him in Melancholia too it was great to see him in something esle while I am not a huge fan of Straw Dogs he was great in that too. So for me he is a great acotor and people whom have met him have nothing but nice things to say about him since I have never met him I am going to take the majority of love his fans and his co workers have to say about him as truth, since they have met him. In commentaries AB and D o Hare said lovely things about him that he he is a lovely man and AB said he has no vanity about him, when you look him him you can see that is true that he is humble sweet and nice to everyone.
    Sorry this post is so long but These people posting bad stuff about him is really wrong. Give the guy a break, he’s doing what he loves and he is doing a great job at it. (there are far worst people in HW) We has the fans love him and wait to see what he has coming up let us have that. Let us be his fans in peace we don’t care what someone behind a computer says. We are listening to people whom have interacted with him and they all say the same thing he is great really nice guy. So take your sour grapes esle where because I for one DON’T care about what you have to say you just sound crazy and bitter neither of which are attractive.

  • F.Y.I.

    Alexander Skarsgard american movies are always a flop.

  • F.Y.I.

    @STOP: Finally, someone without pink glasses:
    This guy is True Blood + a few movie flops and that’s it.

  • Camille

    @texas swede:
    True enough. It seems very invested to use up that much time if you don’t like someone. I’m like you, I’ve only posted about someone I didn’t like if they were linked to someone I did, and even that got old for me. I know longer post on that other person’s threads. It’s no longer relevant for me.

    @ladybug:
    They might have met in passing, but I doubt it was anything huge. Maybe they had a couple drinks and talked for an hour or two, but it’s certainly a stretch to say she was a girlfriend. There was never another mention of her at all after that. I noticed it was in the headlines that the girl from SN mentioned as being bunk, and she has met him several times. I’d trust her opinion more than some random tweeters or person who fed info to a gossip rag.

  • Mia

    @Canuck #198: In regards to how I know that Sookie won’t end up with a vampire (in the books). Well, I don’t know with 100% certainty but there were a few responses from Charlaine at her ComicCon panels that hinted at it whether directly or indirectly. The Q & A sessions are posted on You Tube in multiple parts for the different years she’s had her own panel at ComicCon. I remember her saying that Sookie will have her “happily ever after”. On her website, in the FAQ section, someone asked if Sookie will ever become a vampire, get pregnant by a vampire or be overjoyed when one of her vampire lovers turns human? CH responded: “No. And it’s not possible for a vampire to impregnate a human in my world.” I want Sookie and Eric to be together forever so badly but unless Sookie becomes immortal somehow, their relationship will ultimately be doomed. I just hope CH doesn’t kill Eric off in the end. That would be awful. I guess we’ll know in a little over a year how the story will end. Let’s just hope it will leave us satisfied…

  • Canuck

    @Mia: There’s always the fairy longevity option. I’ve read a couple of other series by CH, and judging from those, it would be highly out of character for her to do a 180 this far into it.

  • texas swede

    Do you think it is possible she could the cluveil dor to restore Eric’s human life? Would he give up being a vampire for her? After all when he had amnesia in book 4 he told her he would give up all his power and station for her. She could always have Niall protect Hunter. Or remove his gift.

  • Mia

    @Canuck: I have thought of the longevity option but Sookie is only 1/8 fairy unless there was a way to use the cluviel dor for that? I have yet to read any of her other series but I enjoy her writing so I will definitely catch up on those.

  • Mia

    @texas swede: For some reason my comment didn’t go through so I am giving it another try :-) I don’t think Sookie will use the cluviel dor to restore Eric’s human life. That would be nice but with Charlaine saying that no vampire will turn human, chances of that are pretty slim. I think that Sookie will use it to get Eric out of his predicament or like you said, to protect Hunter by taking away his gift. I am strongly leaning toward the latter. I need to re-read the last book. I am a little fuzzy on the details of it but if I remember correctly, there were quite a few restrictions on the use of the cluviel dor.
    BTW, I just watched Generation Kill over the Holidays and loved it. Alex was amazing in it. Been wanting to watch Beyond The Pole but so far, it has not been available on Netflix.

  • Cafélady

    @texas swede: #213
    I have to admit, I haven’t seen ‘the way back’ yet – but I think it’s surely a good movie. Gustav has obviously made a lot of quality productions in the past in sweden (part of it on stage with playing shakespeare and so on) and now international too. But I guess you know this already. :)
    But instead of ‘the way back’ I’ve seen recently ‘simple simon’ with bill skarsgard – he was very good in it. And of course it’s a good and funny movie in general too.
    ‘Beyond the pole’ I still have to see – same for a few of alex older swedish movies (I’ve seen some of them, but only partial on yt). But for any reason there aren’t available in german stores or amazon.de. Others – like ‘melancholia’ aren’t released here yet.

    And also I plan to watch ‘the girl with the dragon tattoo’ soon. I’ve seen recently the swedish original (with noomi rapace as lisbeth salander) and found it very good. But honestly, up to now I can’t imagine how rooney mara will do it better than rapace, because I found that she was the perfect cast for lisbeth.

  • Tanter

    @Cafélady: If you can find “Om Sara”, I highly recomend it. The movie is somewhat depressing IMO but Alex is very good in it. (you can probably see the parts he’s on on Youtube actually) He’s great in”Exit” too – with the addition of Mads Mikkelsen, another good Scandinavian actor. Gustaf is really good in “Patrik 1,5″ (it’s on YouTube) and brilliant in “Bibliotektjuven”. I actually think all of them – Stellan, Alex, Gustaf and Bill are very talented. I’ve rarely been disappointed by any of their performances, even though some of works in themselves hasn’t been stellar but I guess that’s quite normal if you watch all the work of an actor.

  • Canuck

    @Mia: She might decide to use it to open the portals again and that would leave open the option for CH to use some fairy magic for any number of problem solving options. For that matter, she might use it to make herself a full blooded fairy with her own magic.

  • ladybug

    @Cafélady: Melancholia isn’t out on DVD here in the States until March, so I’m glad I was able to see it in the theater about a month ago. Not exactly a happy uplifting film, but I think the acting was great and the cinematography was beautiful.

  • chelle

    @Tanter: sorta like straw dogs …ASkars did great with what he had to work with as did marsden KB sucked but that was no surprise anyway….the writing sucked for that movie. It’s reminds me of Twilight ….RPattensen is great in water for elephants but in twilight …damn!!!! It’s painful to watch

  • ladybug

    @chelle: KB didn’t suck as badly in SD as I thought she would, and Alex was excellent, but there were some serious issues with SD that even a top-flight stellar couldn’t have solved. And James Woods’ performance, agh!

  • chelle

    @ladybug: What’s really sad is Another Happy Day is already on demand ….wasn’t it just released? She wasn’t the worst but still not convincing …I thought the stripping scene was ridiculous especially since she has nothing to show off .

  • ladybug

    @chelle: I saw that AHD day was on demand over the holidays, I was at a friends house and they were trying to decide what to watch. But Melancholia was also on demand, it’s just another business decision. Of course doesn’t mean anyone’s going to watch it.
    The whole jogging stuff and then the stripping stuff was just WTF? If you/re going to have scenes in which you are attempting to show her as some sort of sexual lure or whatever, heck I’m not sure what Lurie was trying to do, it usually works better when said person actually has some assets to show off and doesn’t look like she’s afraid of eating.

  • Cafélady

    @Tanter:
    ‘Om Sara’ is one of the movies which isn’t available here. But I’ve seen some parts of it on youtube (but I suppose on yt one can’t see the whole movie, anyhow this is one reason more that I wanted to buy it).
    And yes, from what I could see it’s a bit depressing. But he is really good in it. He portrayed that guy so exactly. One can see very good that his playing is based on a very exactly and good observation of real people with an behave or an similar behave like this portrayed guy. Very good.
    ‘Exit’ was good too, even if he had only a smaller role. And Mads is an another good actor, you’re right. I saw him recently in an german movie named ‘the door’ (Orginal: ‘Die Tür’, but I don’t know if it was released in other countries and what title they gave it). It was very good acting of Mads, and a interesting movie anyway. Even though it’s an german ‘psycho thriller’. The movie was almost philosophical already, I would say. Anyway – worth to watch it.

    The other movies with gustav you’ve mentioned I still have to see. And I agree, I think too that the whole actor-part of the family is really very talented. Stellan’s work stands for it’s own, of course. And his part in ‘dragoon tattoo’ is the bigger reason for me to watch it.

    And of course, I have ‘Gen Kill’ too. :)

    *yawn* Moving on…due to complete lack of evidence.

    I liked Om Sara, at least the parts I could find on youtube. There were some that were missing. You had to have an account to view a couple, due to their content and I wasn’t signing up for that purpose alone. I thought it was an interesting storyline and he looked so great in it, especially in that red shirt.

    @ TexasSwede, are you the artist formerly known as Anarchy/Maeve?

    LOL so basically someone is admitting they love the attention. Alrighty then.

  • Doreen

    If Alexander used cocaine he would have enlarged pupils, which he never does. They’ve never been big in any photos of him. You may be able to hide certain things like behavior, but you can’t hide how your brain makes central nervous system respond. As an addiction counsellor that would be the first thing I’d be looking for if it were true, but he never has that at all. His pupils are normally sized, and sometimes even a tad small IMO. Not drastically so, but a tad. I haven’t commented in a long time on here, but I hate it when people say things without proof, or without knowing the biological signs that would be indicative of use. It’s obvious he likes alcohol, there is a ton of evidence about that. But of anything else, no. If he spent so much time hiding things, then you’d not see so many photos of him drinking or fooling around with his costars from Beyond the Pole while obviously intoxicated. Those kinds of statements do not make sense.

  • Macy

    @Doreen:
    Welcome back Doreen. Thanks for posting that. Yes, as a stimulant it would enlarge blood vessels and cause big pupils.
    Probably best to just not give anymore attention.
    Anyway, I just found these on yuku. Someone uploaded pictures of Alex working out while on the set of GK. Apparently it’s from the GK extras.

    @Macy: It really looks like him, but bulkier-he really wasn’t that bulky in GK, presumably because the real Brad Colbert isn’t that bulky. So it’s time to watch GK and its extras again, for research purposes of course!

    Thanks to the posters who answered my questions re The East movie. Of all he’s done recently, I think I am looking forward to seeing that one the most. I will also be interested to hear more about the big Viking movie he is supposed to start this summer after TB filming ends. I like historical movies so I hope they get a really good script written for that one.
