Alexander Skarsgard: Returning for 'Zoolander 2'?

Alexander Skarsgard: Returning for 'Zoolander 2'?

Alexander Skarsgard goes for a walk after picking up some groceries on Monday (August 6) in Vancouver, Canada.

The 35-year-old actor is trying to reprise his role in the upcoming sequel to Zoolander, even though his character was killed off in the first film.

“I’m pitching it right now. I wouldn’t want to miss that,” Alex told British GQ. “Well, I’m hoping they would do something like the scene with Hamlet’s father, and that Meekus will come back as a ghost – I mean, he’s definitely dead.”

DO YOU WANT to see Alexander Skarsgard in Zoolander 2?

    OMG!! He looks so HOT, the way he is in the first picture make “picking up some groceries” look sexy :P

  • angelie

    I thought his character was killed in that gas explosion. Am I wrong?

  • Love this pic
  • Daniela

    I’m sorry, but I can’t read the article when you put that kind of photos :)

  • BabyXgirl

    Ooh that mean look he’s giving in the profile shot is so damn sexy <3 I'd hit it

  • Lilla

    So yummy :)

  • Tanter

    He’s handsome and sexy as always but it makes me feel uncomfortable to see how much he dislikes having these photos taken :(

  • ladybug

    @angelie: No, you’re not wrong, that’s why Alex said this:

    “Well, I’m hoping they would do something like the scene with Hamlet’s father, and that Meekus will come back as a ghost — I mean, he’s definitely dead.”

    Perhaps a look-alike cousin? Godric-type flashbacks? DNA reconstruction, like in Jurassic Park?

  • Candice


  • AbFab

    Poor Alex. Maybe thought he would have be pap free in Vancouver?

  • LOLly

    @AbFab: I agree. It’s too bad the paps are not leaving him alone in Vancouver. I hoped that they would.

  • Lawrence

    Does Alex ever smile?, every time I see him he looks annoyed/pissed. If its the Paps then I totally understand, vultures the lot of them.

  • Slinky the Cat

    That is an unhappy Viking, and I don’t blame him. I hate that he’s being hounded already, but dear Lord LOOK AT HIM!!!! Unbelievably sexy!

    I would love to see him make another appearance as Meekus. Bring it on!

  • ladybug

    @Lawrence: It’s the paps, he doesn’t usually smile when he knows they’re around.

    @AbFab, I don’t think he thought he’d be completely pap free, but he probably thought it wouldn’t be so bad. But twice in 3 days, they’ve probably figured out where he’s staying and his routine by now. He had about a week to wander around, not necessarily unnoticed but at least unpapped.
    I’m glad for us, but sad for him.

  • Lilla

    @Lawrence: It’s the paps unfortunately. I guess they figured out where he was staying.

  • Daisy

    I’d watch him do anything. Seriously. Based on these pics they could make a movie about him grocery shopping and I would still watch it.

  • Cafélady

    @Tanter: #7 …well, it’s a little difference between yesterday’s pic’s and today’s as far how it looks…to me it seems a bit like as hadn’t he expected that they would follow him so fast already again, after they already had photographed him yesterday.

    I also like it to see new pic’s of him – but on the other hand…I mean, it might be that he was in a hurry -just going fast into the grocery directly after work and to buy a few things, for instance- as like we others sometimes, too. I think in that case it would be understandable that he perhaps wouldn’t liked so much the idea to be papped already again – so shortly after the last time.

    As someone said already, possibly he hoped that he wouldn’t be papped so much in Vancouver.

  • Strange

    Great news for our sexy viking !! Serious look but you still hella fine .Gotta love him…….

  • Tanter

    @Cafélady: I think he really, really loathes the paps and is deeply annoyed that they’re now following him around. I read an interview with Valter today and he mentioned that they had no privacy when they visited Alex in LA. Bill has said the same in interviews. I think it means a whole lot more to him that we can even imagine. Which to be honest is starting to make me feel really bad about looking at papshots of him. If you really like the guy, how can you support those who bring him so much grief and annoyance? I’m not pointing my finger at anyone, I’m just wondering.. :(

  • ladybug

    @Tanter: He can go ninja when he wants to, especially in LA. It’s harder when he’s on location.

    And, If I recall, when Valter and My visited LA last year, he was still with KB, and that probably played a part in their getting papped so often.

  • sinca

    there’s only like 2 or 3 paparazzi in Vancouver, but they know where EVERYONE is. They’re always on Twitter.

  • Macy

    Vancouver is a hotspot for films, so I’m sure paps travel up there to take photos if they know productions are going on. He looks annoyed as hell though, poor guy.

  • MIU

    Hottie <3<3<3

  • Tanter

    @ladybug: I have so much love for Ninja-Skars! <3 And yeah, KB would have played a part in the paps showing up. I guess she had a lasting effect on his relationship with the paps. So glad she's gone from his life now.

  • Capoeira Moves

    haha. He looks like he’s getting ready to do some real bad stuff.

    How to capoeira

  • hmmmmmmm

    Alex, it looks like you have a big boo on you noise&eye. Come here and let me kiss it for you to make it better.

    Seriously, the tweeters have disclosed his whereabouts so Alex may have to just grin ( or in his case side eye) and bear it for awhile.

  • Pam

    He probably feels more at home in the north, paps or no paps. At least there’s that.

  • maria

    i love his hair like this, longer and blonder, i hope that keep it for the next season of true blood, but no the beard, please.

  • icemft

    The reporter of GQ UK asked a stupid question and Alexander gave an ironic answer, but as it often happens noone figured it out and now everybody writes that he is in talks for the sequel.
    I would prefer to know what is he really in talks for after Hidden. Last Summer when the filming of S4 of TB was towards its end we already knew for 3 upcoming projects. This Summer we only know about one. Very secretive! Or is he finally going on a real long vacation this year? Hm… Well, it will be well deserved if it is so.
    And last, but not least, what’s different about this session of pics: he doesn’t wear his glasses. Ain’t that new? He is always so prepared to avoid looks and paps. This was really ulikely for him, to come across paps in Vancouver twice in such a short time. :)) Surprise, Alex!

  • Marlene

    He was just making a joke. I’d watch him in anything!

  • mforman

    You know what truly amazes me is that he is probably one of the nicest people that HW has to offer. Yesterday at the movies he is smiling and laughing with fans, and of course he signed whatever he was asked, and that was so geniue and so like all the things we read about him, but these disgusting paps stalking him outside a grocery store is awful. You and I both know they were probably yelling things at him and we know he can not answer, he figured he would pick up some stuff for the week and be on his way, but of course, they track him down and harass him.
    I would watch him just doing errands (so I guess I am just as bad as the paps), I really do not think there has ever been an actor that is so gorgeous no matter how he has to look for a role and more than that so damn talented.
    I am glad in a way he is keeping his upcoming projects a little on the sleeve, that just gives us more to find out and be surprised with.
    I really hope he goes to the TIFF, for WMK, he seems to like that film festival.
    I think his family is finding visiting him alot easier now and that is great, because that smile he has on the red carpet with various family members cannot be beat.

  • poppy

    @mforman: I agree. There’s something very genuine about Alex that I really appreciate. Stars these days are usually so unbelievably fake, so he’s like a breath of fresh air. Love him!

  • ladybug

    @icemft: He was joking about Zoolander 2.

    And we didn’t know about Disconnect and The East until near the end of filming WMK.

    He had his sunglasses on for some of the Saturday pics.

    @maria, they probably won’t keep the long hair for TB, which is fine by me.

  • Celeste

    God Alex is so dang sexy! I’m loving that look he’s giving! Super hot!!!!

  • Ashley

    ORANGE MOCHA FRAPPUCCINO’s for everyone.

  • Macy

    A list came out in tv guide that shows how much some actors make per episode. Alex is doing very well! F*ck you money indeed! He gets as much as Anna and Stephen per episode.

  • ladybug

    @Ashley: It amuses me that when Alex’s casting as Brad Colbert was announced, the real Brad’s fellow Marines starting calling him Orange Mocha Frappuccino.

    @Macy: FU money indeed. And yet, as Meatballs points out, he still can’t seem to buy a new pair of jeans. :)

    Unlikely onscreen gk reunion coming soon…
    Reply Retweet Favorite

    I’d love it of Alex could work again with some of the GK guys, especially PJ or Jon Huertas,especially in a comedy. I know he worked with Billy Lush on SD, but I’m ignoring that.

  • Disney Villainess

    Well, well, well, an angry Skars is still considered a fine ass Skars.:D

    @Daniela: LOL, I ALWAYS go straight to the pics, I don’t have time for all that other stuff.:)

    @Macy: “F*ck you money indeed!”

    It really is, that’s a lot of cheddar, make that money Skars!

  • Macy

    LOL or new tees either! He has like 4 outfits. A reunion for the GK guys would be awesome. They always seem to have so much fun when they get together.

  • Macy

    @Disney Villainess:
    That’s almost 2.5 million per season!

  • ladybug

    @Macy: At one point earlier in the series I think Anna or Stephen mentioned a little over a million per season. But it’s been so successful I would be surprised if most everyone got raises. So yeah, at least the leads have FU money, even after taxes, manager’s fees, etc.

  • Dawn

    Does anyone posting on this site have a b/f of their own? I mean seriously! He is a good looking man, I will give you that, but he is human after all. I don’t understand how people worship celebrities. I think half of them are out of their minds. Most do drugs, are super fake and horribly materialistic. The worst part of it is, the fans put these people up on pedestals. Hey they eat and shit like the rest of us too! Snap out of it stalkers of the world!!!

  • ladybug

    @Dawn: And yet, here you are, commenting. Pot, meet kettle.

  • maria

    @Dawn: i dont worry the people for admire an artist , i am worry the people hate and artist and loose time comenting .

  • Cafélady

    @Tanter: #19…well, that was already a topic in earlier posts…I can only speak for myself of course…it’s somehow a two sided thing…on one hand I like it to see new pic’s of him, like everyone else…on the other hand I feel also unwell (like you also wrote) if I have the feeling that they obviously pester him or hunt him and don’t give him a bit privacy.

    I’m anyway and usually already satisfied (and having a less bad conscience) if I can see new pic’s of him at official events -as upcoming TIFF, for instance or comic-con etc.- or something.

    But when we not want to support people (pap’s) who pester him somehow in his free time -so hunting him and papp him- means also that JJ only has something to post about him, when he visit an official event. That’s the other side of the medal. But your argument has something of it’s own. I also think about this often for myself – where here the border is.

    What interview with Bill and Valter was it, respectively where did you read it?

  • Texas Swede

    In the previous post he was happy as could be signing something for a fan. Today I find on twitter that the supposed fan is the one who pointed him out to the papparazzi. And he is selling the items he had signed.

    This is the kind of thing that really pi$$es me off. First posing as a fan to obtain autographs to sell, and second ratting him out to paps. That is probably why he looks so ticked off in these pics.He probably recognized the photographer from the day before.

    Yeah I love seeing new shots of him but not at the cost of his privacy and good nature.

    As for the money he makes for TB, he is lucky if he gets 60% after Agents, managers, and PR people. And the cost of living in his business is not cheap. He ain’t hurting but he ain’t swimming in clover either folks. And I kinda like the fact he is not hung up on new stuff all the time. Shows he is well grounded. Still the conservative Swede. The Porsche was probably a gift to himself for the Calvin Klein deal. Or possibility even a perk of the deal and a gift ‘from’ CK.

    Let him be ninja, wear what he wants, and make what he can, while he can. As long as he keeps providing a great performance in whatever project he chooses I will still be a big fan.

  • ladybug

    @Texas Swede: “Today I find on twitter that the supposed fan is the one who pointed him out to the papparazzi. And he is selling the items he had signed.” Not cool.

    I will look at comparison photos and not think of bad ‘fans’:

    So it looks like I’m going to have to get the September Details:
