    @seeshay: I too am looking forward to “The East”. Maise is going to be a totally different him as well. I think all 3 of his projects this summer are going to showcase his versatility very well.
    “The Vanguard” is a long way off but I am looking forward to it as well. The danger of that is we have all have this loooonng wait in which to get our hopes built up and the rumors flying around it to start expectations rising. This leads to setting fans up for a big letdown.
    ******************************
    I intend to forget about it until actual filming starts. For one thing I always remember is Alex makes the kind of movies he wants. He has turned down many roles because he does not want to be typecast. His phrase “****’ you money” means he has a good paying job that lets him say no to playing the same old character in different scripts. Now he is putting himself on the line. I don’t want to raise the bar so high he will never be able to rise to it. And I hope his true fans don’t either.

  • Macy

    @texas swede:
    The East sounds really interesting. It’s the film that I’m most looking forward to in terms of storyline. Maisie will just slay me with the child. She was so cute, and he was so good with her. I’d love to see how that translates on screen.

  • ladybug

    @texas swede: I am looking forward to all 4 Alex movies this year. And none of the roles appear to be some variation of Eric or other alpha males, so should be a reminder to people that there’s more to his acting than that. As for the Vanguard, I hope that gets made, even if it’s not this year. I am hoping for Viggo Mortensen to play his brother.

  • texas swede

    @ladybug: It is going to be a very good year for him. With Season 5, Battleship, and the 3 still in post production, and all 4 previous seasons 0f TB and GK as well on HBO, there is no reason for an Alex drought.
    ***********************
    I like the idea of Viggo as his older brother. One thing is for sure it will be an interesting story.

  • Macy

    @ladybug:
    Viggo as his older would be great. He pulls off that look very well.

    @texas swede:
    I agree. There will be a lot of him next year. I hope his films get picked up quickly, as many of them are smaller independent films.

  • ladybug

    @texas swede: I think someone already photoshopped a Vanguard poster with Alex and Viggo. Throw in some Mads Mikkelsen and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and you’d have an excellent cast, looks good and can act.

  • Macy

    @ladybug:
    Oooh I love Nikolaj! He’d be great. Mads too.

  • POGO

    @Stop:

    Stop did you say something?

    Do you know the word LIABLE. That is what you are doing every time you post that he is a coke head. You need to put up or shut up. It’s called PROOF baby PROOF.

  • MiriamWebster

    Actually, the word you’re thinking of is libel.

  • MiriamWebster

    Whereas, liable can be used in the same context as libel, the most common usage means “likely to, or apt”.

  • ladybug

    Here’s the photoshopped poster:
    http://30.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lqh1voGKRU1qc9t6io1_r4_500.jpg

    @POGO: MiriamWebster is correct, libel not liable.
    And it’s what got the previous comment of his deleted and now this one-though that comment was here just a few minutes ago.

  • texas swede

    Hmmm guess JJ does not let just anyone post here.
    *******************
    I really don’t want to start thinking too deeply about the possible cast for “The Vanguard”. But again that is just me. I like to find out about it as it happens and that way no letdowns for me.

  • Macy

    @POGO: @MiriamWebster:
    Yes, and it’s why their comments are removed, not because anyone here is mad at the bad jokes made about posters. JJ often removed comments that are slanderous and contain libel. It violates the user rules.

    @ladybug:
    I’m surprised the comment above it is still there, even thought it seems to say the exact same thing that the one person is always harping on. Exact same thoughts right within a couple minutes of each other. Hmmmm.

  • Mia

    @ladybug: OMG! I love that photoshopped poster. So hot! Thanks for the link.

  • Cafélady

    @ladybug:
    I have to admit, I’m obviously not really up to date, because these Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says unfortunately nothing to me. :(
    What of course don’t mean anything. What movies/tv has he made, is he only well known in US respectively?
    *****************
    Viggo would be great as the older bro. I’m looking forward for Vanguard too, it sounds like an interesting project for alex. Is there anything new about it again, I mean the story itself? And like I said already, I find Mads is an good actor too. Would be a good casting choice.

    @texas swede:
    I know he said this several times, that he don’t like the idea to be typecast. And up to now, he has done a lot for it to avoid it already.
    I really don’t know why some people give this ‘*** you money’ phrase of him so much attention. He is right with it, because as an actor you need jobs like this to get a bit creative freedom, even if he meant it probably more funny than anything else.

    @Macy:
    I will never understand what people can have of it, to make such slanderous and impudent comments. I mean, seriously I can’t imagine that such a person really feels some fun or a bad sort of happiness inside when doing this.
    If they at least would be a bit creative, but it’s -to say it a bit rough- always the same, old s**t yet.

    @Macy: “Maisie will just slay me with the child. She was so cute, and he was so good with her. I’d love to see how that translates on screen.”
    One of the fans who runs a tumblr site write that WMK could consist solely of Alex interacting with Onata Aprile (the young actress) and she’d pay money to watch it.
    @texas swede: since my original response is in moderation (I’m being repressed!) I’ll repost. I think JJ does let anyone post here. I think he relies on the thumbs up/down and the flagging option to control the trolls, but that doesn’t always work. I wonder if he’s actually had to ban a commenter’s ip address.

  • STOP, JUST STOP

    @POGO or anybody that like to change their names:
    Really?! you want me to take a picture of some Doofus playing with white powder. You ppl have some serious mental disorder when you post under different names. Hey, at least I have up-lifted your boring lives

  • ladybug

    @Cafélady: “I have to admit, I’m obviously not really up to date, because these Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says unfortunately nothing to me. :( ”
    Danish actor. I’ve seen in a couple of things, but he’s gotten more fame here in the States for playing Jaime Lannister in the HBO series Game of Thrones.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikolaj_Coster-Waldau

  • Cafélady

    @ladybug:
    Thanks. It’s a bit embarassing for me, that first his name said nothing to me. lol
    After looking to the wiki-link you gave, it’s clear now; of course ‘game of thrones’. (*head desk*) lol
    He has an interesting filmography and I’ve even seen a few of his works, but I confess that he couldn’t attract my attention that much up to now.

    May be it would be a bit different, if I had seen something of ‘game of thrones’ already. But I can’t watch/follow it, because I have no ‘TNT series’ (one of the german pay-tv-channels).
    It’s somehow funny, because GOT and TB are both from hbo, but here it depends on it which channel can buy and then air a show. And I guess it’s no surprise; if one have a bit limited budget, then one can’t have all. lol

  • ladybug

    @Cafélady: I’d watched a little of the show New Amsterdam, but it wasn’t on very long. So I had some residual memory of him. But now having read Game of Thrones and the rest of the books in the series I’m interested in seeing how he plays Jaime. Of course, since I don’t get HBO I’ll have to wait until the dvd comes out in a couple of months.

  • Megan

    It doesn’t matter what you think your idea of that means because JJ obviously think you’re in violation of his guidelines for using his site. In any event none of this is an adult conversation.

  • http://none texas swede

    @Megan:This one will never stop. They have a personal axe to grind and will pick any one of his fans to cut. They need to truly research what they write. Libel and Malice are two different things. And malicious intent is very apparent in their rantings. let them just fade away. JJ has already removed another post of theirs.He can’t stop them but he will remove them if they set him up for legal trouble.

  • POGO

    @MiriamWebster:

    5 in the morning and I make a typo. But thank you for the correct spelling.

  • POGO

    @POGO:

    Thank you ladybug, Im glad to see that, that persons post is gone. It was a horrible post.

  • POGO

    @STOP, JUST STOP:

    LOL, that was the first post I have ever made on this site. Im not a regular poster, but a regular lurker.

    So stop you just really need to stop trying to think.

    All you have done is made yourself look like a total fool.

    Have a nice day.

    Thanks ladybug and Camille. I always said he reminded me of Steve McQeeen.

    @Correction: It is you that is making a FOOL of yourself. So now you are calling yourself a prostitute. You keep coming at me. You are still proving to me that I am right. That you are part of a really crazy group of ppl and that you have some behaviour issues.
    *%*%
    So why don’t you admit who you really are. Come on make me laugh!!!!

  • STOP, JUST STOP

    J.J is not doing anything. If I was to personally attack him then he can maybe get his lawyer. But I am not attacking him nor his site. It is all of you that are “flagging” my comments. You ppl seem to live in a fantasy world where it is absent of criticism. A lot of you are americans Right?It seems that Freedom of Speech is only for ppl like you and not me . You can not censor me.

  • Canuck

    Wow, what an attention wh*re! The Sam Browne troll I mean. At least he’s given up gardening, except for the shovelling BS bit.

    Fab to get a new pic of ASkars. Perhaps we’ll be getting spoiled after the weekend awards.

  • ladybug

    @Canuck: I’m looking forward to some suit pics. And then he can go back to being invisible.

  • Cafélady

    @Canuck: #288
    Attention wh*re?!? Well…I would rather say a person who obviously needs some real professional help… I mean, usually the trolls make their remarks for once or twice but then they go away, because they are bored if they can’t get positive reactions or enough direct reactions.

    The most of them are apparently satisfied with it, that they’ve just said what they wanted to say.
    But this is somehow sick, really.
    *************************

    I mean, one can’t name this nutty user a troll – not really, because in that case you probably would somehow insulting the usual trolls. ;) lol …really, the “regular” trolls…;) lol

    (to the regulars:…I really hadn’t thought, that I would say someday something like my last sentence…’breaking a lance’ for the pesky trolls, really…;) *head shaking* lol)

    @chelle…Thanks, …. but isn’t it an odd coincidence the very post made by Texas Swede was made a couple pages ago by The first one you talked to in your post?

  • texas swede

    @ladybug: Looks like they caught him dancing….lol.

  • Cafélady

    @texas swede:
    :))))
    ************************
    Yes, I thought just the same – in this pic he reminds me of Steve McQueen too. And I confess – I like this chlothing combination very much on him *ducks*…lol…probably I’m too much european or something…or? ;) lol

    @ladybug:
    :) Great! Looks like as they were at the same place in this pic, together at this GG partie respectively…

  • Stop, Just Stop

    All you had to do was simply ignore me. But you didn’t. You “regulars” made a choice to censor me. You ppl should not have done that. You wanted me to be creative with my posts. So I will. Let’s see you ppl flag yourselves now :)

  • ladybug

    reposting because JJ is oppressing me by putting the original comment in moderation
    @Cafélady:
    I too like the cardigan look on AS.
    Yes, Stellan and Alex were at the W Magazine party. I like that they enjoy hanging out together.
    I find it funny that there are still people who have no idea that they’re father and son. Oh yeah, they’re related:

    @Cafélady: YOU European????? I had no idea!!! Just because you live in Germany….guess I need to be told how stupid I am again. I did take my diplomas off the wall. I guess my Photography major and Pre- Law minor 3.88 GPA does not qualify me anymore. I wanted to know the legalities of my profession as well as being good at it.
    **************************
    Sorry going to my time out chair with My Eric “Um Eh Sorry” face on again. But I too like him better with a European look. Thanks for letting me be funny with you.

  • texas swede

    I have to add I like the haircut also. Seems he is changing his look somewhat and I have to say I approve.

    @texas swede: It’s possible that TB is tweaking the Eric look, but I like it this way, I’m not that fond of the Yeti Skars look.
    sexually explicit? Does this meant I can’t link to that gif of the Om Sara shower scene?
    “…Um Eh Sorry” face on again.”
    This?

    @ladybug: I promise to love your links. I love that sorry face. Like a five year old who got caught in the cookie jar…..lol.

  • Cafélady

    @ladybug:
    Yes, it’s unbelievable sometimes, how many people still apparently don’t know this fact – or at least they act like that. …mhhm…I have seen this two pics somewhere already…probably at any of the AS fansites…but it doesn’t matter…nice pics. :)

    Stellan was really a very good-looking men too as a younger one, but even today -as an now 60 year old- he looks good for his age, I would say. And yes, the similarity is amazing – especially in these both pics.

    Alex himself said several times that he loves to hanging out with his father (and with the rest of his family too of course). And that they both aren’t really like father and son, but more like bro’s. Sounds as would they have really an good contact and a close bond to each other – in the whole family apparently. Nice.

    @texas swede:
    :) well…I guess, sometimes we europeans look and act really…mhhm…europeanlike…lol
    Even we Europeans realize it sometimes…;) But it doesn’t really matter I think, I mean that makes life interesting too, right? Our similarities and our little differences as humans…and as nations. But in the end we’re all somehow connected, I guess.
    ************************

    I guess to know the legalities of your (as well as almost of any) profession is smart. Especially in these days. And I imagine even with an very good education like yours is it hard these days. The professional and economical survive, I mean. And still more in an arty profession.
    *******************
    You’re welcome! It’s nice that you had some fun with some of my comments – it’s a pleasure for me to have some fun with you too (and some of the others here, of course).
    ***********************

    Good idea, to post the JJ rules – I admit I havn’t read them before. …mhhm…I should have done it, I guess. lol
    I guess, now I’m one of these ‘stupid’ persons. lol Or haven’t I realized up to now how stupid I was before?…may be I was too stuuupid for it…lol …even with two professions and one of it with an state exam…

    But seriously, I think more or less these sites have all similar rules.
    Nethertheless, like I said – good point…
