Alexander Skarsgard: Me Playing Christian Grey Wouldn't Be An Issue

“Me playing Christian wouldn’t be an issue. I even have a sex chamber in my basement—my True Blood character does—so I’ve had [the necessary] training,” Alexander said (via the Examiner).

DO YOU WANT TO SEE Alexander Skarsgard as Christian Grey in 50 Shades of Grey??

    Umm Who are you again? LOL I dont see why people think Ryan Gosling is so attractive, he seems cocky to me, and not much of a big deal. But if the ladies dig him, I think he should do the role.

    Maggie Says:

    Although I’d never turn down the chance to see Alexander in a sexy role, really any role for that matter, I am not really feeling him as Christian Grey. I admire him for chosing roles that are constantly different and show off his acting skills. Playing Christian Grey is just too close to playing Eric.

    wellus Says:

    He’s my second choice for C.Grey. My first pick is Henry Cavill, I think I would probably combust if they cast him :P
    I agree and understand why people who are not a fan of the book say it is lousy written -it is. But when it gets turned into a movie they will be hiring their own qualified writers so I’m really optimistic about its chances as a movie.

  18. 18
    Question Says:

    @Ashley: Umm…is Christian Gray supposed to be gay? If not, there’s no way Bomer should play him. A gay man is just not believable as a straight man. Sorry but that’s true.

    Annabell Says:

    He must not have read the book. There is more to the book/character than the Red Room. He is not the right fit for the role IMO.

    I think he would be great as Christian he is tall slinder and does that thing with his eye brow. I also think Anne Hathaway would be great as Anastasia she looks innocent and is a fantastic actress.

Some of you ladies are freaking out over the casting choices as if Christian Whatshisface is Jesus and this horny book is The Bible. Good grief, get a grip! Watch a porno or something to release all that sexual frustration!

    As much as I love my Alexander I have to say it would be a miscast for him. I read the books and it has to be someone younger and to be honest it would be smarter to cast an unknown. All this talk is just pr for the movie.

    Anyhoo, while looking at this pic I wonder how he takes his coffee.

    I hadn’t thought about Alex playing Christian but I think it would be great. He is sexy and can play a tormented/sensitive/driven/domineering kind of character. Not many can do that. It’s not just the looks – they have to get the character right. No way is Matt Bomer capable of all the subleties need for Christian. Ryan Gosling is an amazing actor but not sexy enough. It’s going to be a tough role to cast. So many women have already pictured their Christian Grey.

    Karma Says:

    None of his serious fans want him to play this role. Just look at TPF or meatballs tumblr and you’ll get it. This isn’t the type of movie he would do anyway. He’s just being polite because he gets asked this stupid question in every interview he does. I’m actually surprised JJ didn’t mention that Alex is being considered for the lead in the remake of Tarzan.

    Francois Arnaud should be considered, he’s the right age and a good young actor. But I agree, Whoever gets this role… what does it matter? girls will definitely watch this.

    Two Words: Francois Arnaud. Don’t be surprised if he is cast. The same casting agency for this movie is the same for the TV show he works on.

    And also don’t be surprised that Katie Cassidy gets a role in this since she is friends with Dana Brunetti.

    Nice radio interview. And trolls Can we please put the CT rumors to rest in the radio interview where he mentioned were he has been travelling in the last 3 weeks he would have had no time to see CT or travel to namibia poor guy he must have been tired

    Marie Says:

    He is Christian Grey, more so than any of the other actors wanting the role, period. Matt brings too much personal baggage with him and would kill the entire film with it. Ian could not act to save his life, and Henry is too stiff in both his acting and movements to be taken seriously. Alexander is perfect for the role.

  48. 48
    Marie Says:

    And for those complaining about his age, the age of the character was completely unbelievable, bump up the age in the film, is done all the time. Will make the movie that much better and believable. He is but two years older than Ian, and looks that much better.

    Thanks for the interview

    Hmmmmm Alex was pretty certain where he travelled in the last few weeks and never once managed to slip up in a namibia mention ? to visit Charlize Theron

    Is he just being coy and careful or it never happened?

  51. 51
    ladybug Says:

    @Ke: To repeat comment #41, were you really expecting him to say that he’d been in Namibia on a visit to CT, even if he had been? I don’t think he was, but I find it highly unlikely that even if he had been he’d just drop it in an interview.

  52. 52
    § Says:

    50 Shades of Grey + Alexander= Repetitive creative job path that could be a sort of a career suicide for him. He is already a CG in TB so I don’t think he will consider seriously the role. He is just being polite and respectable. I mean come on guys that book is like that Twilight movie; it needs someone fresh and unknown in the hollywood industry to make a better impact. Robert Pattison was well known once he did twilight and I believe the same should happen to an actor on the rise.
    AS needs to do more comedy and maybe an historical-medieval movie. He has to Diverse people, and 50 shades of Grey is career suicide and it will lower his acting cred.
    Now on his appearance: some one is packing up huh? Body porn everywhere. God.
    But why is he back in the US? I though we wouldn’t see him until next year or something…Not complaining either way…

  55. 55
    Canuck Says:

    50 Shades of Grey as is… no, I wouldn’t want to see him in it because he’s far more talented than the author and better than the character. The writing is cliche and the characters are flat.

    That said, a good screenwriter could change it from bad fanfiction to 9 1/2 weeks or Belle de Jour and create complexity and depth in the characters that the book hasn’t.

    Unlikely I know, but that might be the reason that he hasn’t closed the door on the speculation and keeps repeating that he hasn’t seen a script.

    Alex for CG! Says:


    Except tpf is NOT a fan forum, it’s only a soddy gossip forum like this. If you look closer at the comments on AS thread, you’ll learn that only an half of the regular posters are his fans. Others come to bad mouth him. Just check out the most bitter/patronizing/ belittling comments and then check out Joel Kinnaman’s and Joe Manganello’s threads you’ll get the picture. Also seems that many of the p00p “ladies” are Stephen Moyer fans, hmmmm. Go figure ;) I also find it funny that so many fans wants him to stay in ridiculously stupid and cheesy true blood but wouldn’t allow him to play Grey and get bigger exposure. What after TB, he’s not very well known outside TB and HBO circles and TB has already ruined his opportunities as an serious actor, at least in Europe. Sad but True.

    That’s why Seann Penn got an Oscar for playing a gay man as a straight guy. If your idea is true it also should work the other way around, but guess not huh?

    ladybug Says:

    @Alex for CG!: “What after TB, he’s not very well known outside TB and HBO circles and TB has already ruined his opportunities as an serious actor, at least in Europe” And playing CG would help in that regard? For someone whining about TPF ‘belittling’ him you seem to be doing more than a little bit of that yourself.

    @Canuck, they could get a good script, and it’s still be titled 50 Shades. I think most of the actors whose names are being tossed around: AS, Bomer, RG, etc, need to stay far far away. Go with an unknown or little known. Heck go with Ian Somerholder and Nina Dobrev, they appear to actually want the parts.

  61. 61
    Alex for CG! Says:


    How was I belittling him? Please explain. That wasn’t my intention but English is not my first language. And I wasn’t “whining” anything. I’m only PO when someone (Karma in this case) declares that his “serious fans” don’t want him to do this or that. And referring some creepy gossip forum (aka tpf) as a mouthpiece of ASkars fandom is beyond stupid ;D

  62. 62
    ladybug Says:

    @Alex for CG!: The part I quoted, sounded like you were belittling him. And let’s not get into a pissing contest with the other fan sites-they do their thing, we do ours. If you’ve got a problem with someone on the another forum, bring it up there, not here.
    You may like 50 Shades, as do many others. But there is also a very large number of people, obviously including myself, who think that he, and any most every other known or semi-known actor, should stay far far a way from it. Why? Because even for a trashy novel it’s a piece of crap.

    Disney Villainess Says:

    *Ahem*: “What after TB, he’s not very well known outside TB and HBO circles and TB has already ruined his opportunities as an serious actor, at least in Europe.”

    ^^^^^^^^^^That is what I would call “belittling”. If he continues to be consistent and persistent in being a good and capable actor, he shouldn’t have any problems being fairly successful when True Blood’s over. And I believe he will be. What I’m curious about though is how has True Blood affected his opportunities of being a serious actor in Europe?

    Lilly Says:

    Alex spotted in Ostersund, northern sweden. Looky here..

    That was october 11. A couple of weeks in solitude then back to Stockholm. Down to Namibia for a quicky with CT? Maybe, but sounds unlikely to me…

    @Disney Villainess: That and appearing to claim to have ‘insider’ knowledge about the casting wishes and choices of both AS and European movie directors. And wans’t Melancholia a European movie? That Alex did during TB break. Or does that not count?

    @Lilly, he was only in Ostersunde/Are for a few days, he was spotted back in Stockholm by that weekend. And was spotted in Stockholm for a few days after that. There was actually a time frame of about 10 days where he wasn’t spotted, or at least tweeted/fan piced. So, it’s not outside of the realm of possibility that he could have gone to Namibia. Don’t think it happened, though.

    I think he cut Sweden short so he cud spent his holiday time with Charlize I believe he was spotted by sumone workin on the film set (lainey source) however the rest of the people do not know who alex really is in namba ################## so was able to spend time with his new rumored girlfriend with _out being snapped and bothered ..###########

    Drive by . You have got to be kidding right? . Do you really think that Alexander would give up the opportunity to spend time in Sweden with family and friends only to fly all the way across the world, spend all that money FOR WHAT? just to bang the living daylights out of Charlize for 10 + days (alex has got nothing better to do with his time other then sex) and for someone who I would not even consider or even close to a girlfriend in fact I don’t even believe she is a close pal ?

    Sorry I am in the minority here that he never went to Namibia to bang Charlize , according to that radio interview sounds like he was doing alot of press/promo/ family , from what I can here of it .

  74. 74
    ladybug Says:

    @Lilly: This spring there were in fact a couple of sightings. In groups. And some weird US Weekly stories. And then her movie promotional duties were over and they both put the kibosh on the rumors.
    Now, several months later Lainey’s ‘sources’ (and only Lainey’s) say they were in Namibia, looking into each other but not engaging in PDA. And these sources went only to Lainey who hadn’t written anything on CT since she arrived in Namibia to start filming. These sources didn’t go to Radar, or US or TMZ or whatever, they went to Lainey. And in the week since there have been no corroboration from any other witness?

    @ladybug: @ladybug:

    “If you’ve got a problem with someone on the another forum, bring it up there, not here.”

    The “problem” is they tend to report members who don’t agree and get them banned. You can trash Alex all you want but if you say something negative about e.g. manganiello your post will be removed and you may be banned. That’s happened on Eonline and on the Vault as well. There have been threads on admin policies of some discussion boards on IDK if its their admin policy or are Manganiello/Moyer fans that sensitive that they report and flag everything they don’t like. I mean they say really nasty and mean things about Alex but if someone even slightly criticize those other guys the said post or the whole thread will mystically disappear. This board seems to be the only one where freedom of speech still prevails. And I didn’t bring that p00p forum up here in the first place so get off your high horse. It was Karma as you well know, she even got 9 likes for propping that sorry excuse for a “fan” forum ;). In the nutshell tPF is NOT a fan forum! It’s gossip page but Alex’s and Kardashian’s threads are the worst ones there. Of course Kimmy is
    a reality show star and seeks attention for attention’s sake but still…And btw, they also laugh at JJ posters, b/c they really strongly believe they’re better than y’all ;D

    Exactly. Europe is the man’s home for f*cks sake, at the least I’m thinking that if it doesn’t work out here(which I do doubt)he has to have plenty of good connections in and around the homeland and it doesn’t have to just be for “serious” parts either, that’s just ridiculous IMO. And he’s a Skarsgard, the lucky b*stard, he’ll be set for life regardless of what happens, LOL. The dude will be OK.

    “And wasn’t Melancholia a European movie? That Alex did during TB break. Or does that not count?”

    It does count. IDK what that person’s talking about……….

    Alex for CG! Says:


    Because Namibia is not US. I’m sure the the Namibians don’t even know who Alex is (except some possible truebies) and I doubt everyone there has cameras and/or cellphones. TB isn’t such a hit outside US and the show has received some really unflattering reviews world wide. Methinks Alex can go pretty ninja most of the time when he’s not in US. He’s not THAT famous except in Sweden and there celebs are left alone, at least by the locals. Of course there’ll always be some creepy stans and unloyal friends who would probably take a picture of him when he’s doing some very intimate, personal or embarrassing stuff and then spread pix all over internet.

    @Alex for CG!: ” And I didn’t bring that p00p forum up here in the first place so get off your high horse. It was Karma as you well know”
    I don’t care who brought up first -kind of a juvenile argument really-but it’s a question of courtesy for everyone else on here not to be dragged into a tpf/whatever forum bashing. It happens occasionally (using the nearly the exact same argument) and it gets very old very quick. Yes, they bash jj on there, and we’ve bashed yuku on here, though I don’t think recently. And yes, I’m well aware of the Vault’s reputation, which why I know I don’t go there.
    Karma brought up tpf and Meatballs, as examples, not subjects, that was you.
    You’re frustrated, Fine. But dragging that frustration with other forums onto this one is annoying. If you like this place because there is no reregistration /moderation (what you call freedom of speech) great. But please leave the other crap behind.

    Alex for CG! Says:


    “Karma brought up tpf and Meatballs, as examples, not subjects, that was you.”
    Actually Karma brought them up as “serious” fans, which Meatball is, I belive, regardless her snarky, sometimes weird comments but tpf is really NOT a fan forum, how many times this need to be said ;)

    You try to admin this page now? And who are you to say what is allowed to talk on this board? You have mentioned other forums and gossip sites several times here; Lainey, Ted, tpf, yuku comes to mind. Are you tpf member or why you get that offended b/c I really didn’t bash them even though I have no respect for them either. What I wrote happens to be true, not nasty speculation, that’s more like their MO. That said I think all the different kind of forums, fans, stans and anti fans are part of the Skarsphenomenon and should be treated as such.
    Btw, I find your “juvenile” comment quite amusing when you and some other regulars here are acting like Alex’s mommys fussing over his whereabouts, gf’s and life in general (though I doubt My Skarsgård is that fussy;)

    I’ve not mentioned Ted in a very long time, so it’s interesting that you’d
    know that I’d mentioned him.

    And yes we mention Lainey, but she isn’t a forum or comment blog, so our comments are specifically about her, not about how we don’t like her commenters or her moderating system or whatnot. But, you know that don’t you?

    You’re not bashing tpf, but yet you call them ‘p00p forum’.

    Oh, no I’m not adminning here-I’m pretty sure that JJ doesn’t actually have one-just making a request.

    “Btw, I find your “juvenile” comment quite amusing when you and some other regulars here are acting like Alex’s mommys fussing over his whereabouts, gf’s and life in general (though I doubt My Skarsgård is that fussy;)”

    And yet you mention all the other AS oriented sites that you’ve gone to, many of which presumably also post similar info-I know Meatballs does. So what is you go for on all these sites for? Scintillating discussion on his career choices? Clothing choices?

    Canuck Says:

    @ladybug: Agreed. And the chances of the script being deeper than the book is infinitesimal.

    That said, it’s pretty clear that the film will do well regardless of who stars in it. One has only to look at how many copies of the badly written book have been sold to understand that. Twilight is the perfect example of this kind of film made from a crappy book that, from a career point of view, will be someone’s “big break” into A list film status.

    He’d have to be a fool to close the door on the idea without ever having seen a script, and I think we all know he’s far from that.

    Most of you lot need to get a life. Unless stalking the movement patterns of actors pays the bills…. a questionable occupation. As for Fifty, based on looks Alex is polar opposite so no. As long as it’s not old boring bomer. Upcoming actors I say.

    ladybug Says:

    @Canuck: It think out of all the known actors whose names have been tossed about only Fassbender has been much more definitive about saying no. Everyone else is being much more diplomatic. Sad part is, the script is just getting started so we’ll have a looooooooong time to go until people get cast and we can stop with this crap.

    I can’t think in another one to play Christian, Alexander is totally Christian: He is handsome, blonde, he knows how to do a sex scene and he seems to be dangerous,complex and an intelligent man I looooove Alexander to play Christian

    About the Skars/CT rumors: Lainey hates CT, she was the one who started the ‘CT is a huge ice queen’ rumors. Aside from my own opinion about their ‘coupling’., I seriously don’t understand why she would even write about her and Alex, since she dislikes CT and came up with the weird ‘Alex at Comicon with a brunette’ stuff, which only shows she has no insider info at all.
    And she loveeeeeees PoopieGoopie Paltrow, so I can’t take her serious: she is actually someone who seems like an ice queen and fake. (ok yeah, had to make a mean remark about Paltrow).

    On Kate Bosworth twitter she is in England as well did not state if her Michael Polish is their with her . Alex & Kate are both in London at the same time .Her tweet is Watching the Dallas Cowboys while i am in England . But don’t know what part of England .

    Could be on his way to Sweden again ? Don’t some flights have a layover to London .

  111. 111
    ladybug Says:

    @Emily: Yes, he usually goes from LA to Stockholm via London. I guess now that he’s got time he’s spending a little extra layover time in London. Maybe he’s looking for less clashing shoes or something.

    @Macy, thanks for that visual!

    @Oh man, at this point RB probably doesn’t even have to map out their coordinates to make sure that they don’t run into to each other.

  112. 112
    Macy Says:

    Yep I would think that’s a major layover point for many Euro flights.

    Macy is right, MP is the Dallas Cowboy fan, so if she is watching the game, he is probably there with her.

    Isnt it also Gustav s birthdsy on the 12th? last heard he was shooting in ireland, so they could be celebrating his birthday in

    But damn i am pissed off! i was in London for a week and he seemd to have got in just as i left !

  117. 117
    ladybug Says:

    @Bumblebee:Due to the magic of The Google, Gustaf’s birthday is indeed today (Nov. 12). Though whether he’s still filming his tv series I have no idea.

    And thumb troll, dear thumb troll, have you considered getting help for your extreme passive-aggressiveness?

    @Watch factory:

    No man, he is there with KBos, or he is involved in a relationship with CT and KBos (OMFG!). Orrrrrr Polish is also involved. Or CT AND Kate are covering for the hot and steamy romance between Alex and Polish! Yes, that must be it! Mystery solved.

    Oh I forgot; Kate and CT are lovers also of course. How could I forget that?

  122. 122
    Macy Says:

    Actually, the most likely reason is that his dad is there shooting Thor, and Alex is probably visiting him since he said his dad is one of his best friends.

  123. 123
    ladybug Says:

    @Macy: Which might also explain the October stopover.

  124. 124
    Macy Says:

    Exactly. I’m sure he put in a visit to his dad since they’re so close. He likes to see his family whenever he can and if Gustaf is still shooting in Ireland perhaps he got to visit with him also.

  125. 125
    ladybug Says:

    So no London Fields project for Alex?

    “For those fans asking…
    YES, Alexander WAS attached a role in London Fields, however I just got an email where he tells me he is no longer available to do the role due to scheduling. :( sorry folks…”

  126. 126
    Wasn't interested ..? Says:

    What scheduling conflicts .? TB that’s all he’s got lined up at the mo, so he cannot fit a minor role around TB ? Doubt it was a major or starring role and TB Which only has 10eps next yr
    Unless he wasnt intrested in the project and dropped out last minute and used scheduling conflicts or really has another film on the go? tell me it’s not TARZEN

  127. 127
    Macy Says:

    Well I guess that’s why he was talking to Olivia at the CK event. You could hear it in the one clip that she asked him about it.
    I guess it was probably scheduled to start shooting in late Dec or the new year, when TB starts back up. Seeing as it take them about 3 weeks to shoot one episode, he wouldn’t have time. There weren’t that many male roles, and the synopsis is that the psychic (Olivia) gets killed by one of two men, so he was probably one of the leads.

  128. 128
    ladybug Says:

    @Wasn’t interested ..?: Would have been a lead, sorry to disappoint you:

    and the film is still in preproduction and so therefore isn’t going to be fit in before TB.

    @Macy, as long as this has been in the works they may not finish preproduction before TB ends filming. But I’m presuming they think they’re near a starting date for him to turn it down.

  129. 129
    Macy Says:

    Well, he really only has about a month and a half to film anything before he would have to start prepping for TB.

    @tall: Don’t distract the relationship troll with facts, they only confuse the troll! :)

    “”True Blood” star Alexander Skarsgard has emerged as the frontrunner to topline David Yates’ “Tarzan” movie at Warner Bros.
    An imposing physical presence at 6’4″, Skarsgard is Yates’ choice to play the vine-swinging hero, sources tell Variety.
    Skarsgard doesn’t have an offer and the studio hasn’t finalized any casting decisions for the film, which has yet to go before the studio’s greenlight committee. However, with a summer start date being planned, it is expected to be greenlit before the end of the year, as WB is high on Yates and wouldn’t tie up his schedule with a movie it has no intention of making.”

  133. 133
    Jeanne Hewitt Says:

    Alexander Skarsgard is a perfect choice to play Christian Grey in Firfty Shades of Grey. He is one of Hollywood’s best kept secrets. Is also one of the sexiest men alive.

  134. 134
    nade Says:

    @Jeanne Hewitt: But he does not look how the character is described. He’d be miscast.

    fyathyrio Says:

    I just can’t see Alex trying very hard for the part. He has said before that he plays a vampire 6 months out of the year and wants to do other types of characters during the hiatus. But he is also the diplomat and would never say anything about not wanting the roll. Would give the impression that he is to picky and therefor difficult to deal with.

    So I think this one should be filed in {Statement stretched out of desperation by media due to lack of new Alex news}.

    And my thought on him in the role:NNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    I did see some set pics of Lucy posted 7th November

    Lucy is apparently in the uk according to her website someone who knows her.???

    rock n roll heart will be going into production next summer after lucy finishes up true blood. she’s co producing and starring, she’s been learning guitar for a while and she’s pretty good actually. she’s over in the uk now until after christmas.

    Omg !! He is perfect for Christian Grey .. seriously if you have watched True Blood you will see how good he matches for Christian Grey character ! When I was reading the books I pictured exactly him for CG ;)
