“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??

  • Macy

  • Canuck

    @Macy: Darn, he just missed me by less than a week… :)))

  • What is he doing now ?

    What is he doing in London again ?? Work? pleasure? Tourist sight seeing?? Special someone?? etc etc

  • WTF!

    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 .

  • ladybug

    @WTF!: Luckily for AS London’s a big city.

  • Oh man

    @WTF!:
    you know they both live in LA OMG they might run into each there too.

  • Macy

    Talk about mountains out of molehills. She doesn’t even like the cowboys, Polish does. He’s there you can bet on it. He’s glued to her behind.

  • Emily

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

  • ladybug

    @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.

  • Macy

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

  • @106

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

  • Emily

    @ladybug: Oh those shoes ! I didn’t know what to think . They might be very comfortable .Hate those shoestrings though in them .

  • ladybug

    @Emily: I hope they’re comfortable, but it’s not his best look, footwear-wise.

  • Bumblebee

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

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

  • ladybug

    @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

    Is Charlize near London. Or still in africa I bet there will be a sighting . Of the two ?

  • Whycantipost

    @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.

  • Whycantipost

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

  • ladybug

    @Whycantipost: You forgot Lucy Griffiths! :)

  • Macy

    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.

  • ladybug

    @Macy: Which might also explain the October stopover.

  • Macy

    @ladybug:
    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.

  • ladybug

    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…”

    https://www.facebook.com/AlexanderSkarsgard.Net?ref=stream

  • Wasn’t interested ..?

    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

  • Macy

    @ladybug:
    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.

  • ladybug

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

    http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/972373/London-Fields/

    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.

  • Macy

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

  • Lucy in the sky

    He’s with Lucy in London. Yes, the next TB couple. How romantic awwwww. TB is such a love fest, just as Evan Rachel Woods told when she kind of admitted she dated Alex ;)

  • tall

    @Lucy in the sky:
    Lucy is in New York on the set her new film.

  • ladybug

    @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.”

  • Jeanne Hewitt

    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.
    Yummy

  • nade

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

  • fyathyrio

    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

  • In the UK.?????

    I did see some set pics of Lucy posted 7th November
    http://bome-diggity.tumblr.com/post/35195052622

    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.

  • wanda

  • James O’Brien
