Disconnect revolves around “a group of people searching for human connections in today’s wired world.”

Mark your calendars, Disconnect is out in theaters on Friday, April 12. We can’t wait!

Last weekend, Alexander was spotted at the CAA Sundance Party in Park City, Utah.

    Wow, who let the nutjob troll in?

    Let me see… His film at Sundance got great reviews and lots of positive coverage. His former girlfriend’s film, also at Sundance got none. We get a troll invasion.

    Sorry troll, talking the guy down isn’t going to make his ex-girlfriend any better at her job. Maybe you should concentrate on talking her up instead. It’s not as if he magically removed her acting skills, her career was in the dumps well before he came along.

    @Macy: Now if they could do something about the trolls.

    @Cadulech: the thumbs systems is the only way that JJ has to control the trolls, Hence, better to have it than to not have.
    And please, stop engaging them. They’re like two year olds having a screaming fit, let them go in the corner and get it out of their system, playing with them makes them worse. It’s not as if you can reason with them.
    151 plus comments and most of it is trolls or direct engagement with them. What’s the point?

    @Canuck, I don’t think it’s entirely related to that, though. We go through bad infestations like this every so often, I think some of it is just people who troll the site, all of the site.
    Which goes back to how JJ runs his site. He could very easily control this. He apparently doesn’t want to. Why he doesn’t, I don’t know.

  • Canuck

    @ladybug: Hits are money…

  • ladybug

    @Canuck: True, but I suspect most of the page views are lurkers anyway, not regular commenters. I don’t think the trolls are really that numerous in number, they just appear to be.

    JJ could at least try, just to be different.

  • mforman

    @fyathyrio–(#148)—-I agree with your comment. I too come on here to read the latest news about him and see some great photos, but the best part is all the real fans sharing the links that they have, that give us more videos and photos and just talking about our different points of views about him. I don’t come on here for this nonesense.
    @ladybug is also right JJ could control this, but he doesn’t and I would also love to know why. JJ isn’t a small operation anymore, it is no longer just him and his brother. JJ needs to read his own rules for behavior and put a stop to the majority of these cruel, nasty and just plain mean comments.
    I mean really almost all of these comments that have been posted are by the ususal trolls, using different names, and for some reason they have been alllowed to just take over the post.
    No matter what they say this is going to be an amazing year for AS. His films are getting positive reviews, and he looks better than ever, nobody can take that away.

    @mforman: And for any troll who’s going to whine about their freedom of speech being violated if they get moderated, it’s a privately owned site, you’re subject to the terms of use of the site owner. Lucky for the trolls, JJ doesn’t enforce his own terms of use.

    And Alex will be part of another CK ad campaign:

    Maybe would be good to remind JJ about it,as keeps in their page

    @ladybug: Boah….that shows again HOW rational the human species is…(Ironic on). But it’s impossible that this (troll party) is reasoned only in the last full moon night…this nonsense is partly that pretty sh*tty – it also must have to do something with any new but crazy drug or something..;) I’m not up to date with this – because I don’t use chemical junk. But it seems as could this be very possible. And it can’t be something what you would smoke as a cigarette – this sh*t makes usually happy and peaceful…;))…but not nasty and hateful.

    But I also think, that Canuck isn’t completely wrong with her comment #151 – because always when Alex has obviously a few successes things again, than promptly we have also an Invasion of some of these fanatic people who obviously are the votary of a certain person…it’s always again surprisingly to see how much hate people can cultivate…

    And the rest are just full time trolls. LoL

    @mforman: I totally agree with what you’ve said about Alex, his talent and his upcoming projects/movies.

    I also was several times a “victim” of this inadequate moderating system of JJ.
    I was a few times moderated for “nothing” which means; a few of my comments were moderated, even though I hadn’t said something nasty or cruel – respectively couldn’t post for a while. And then we regulars have to see this troll invasion…LoL…JJ could control this, but I guess this brings other problems (and more work) with it for him. But this presently system (only special words are on the index – which leads to it, that the comment will not be posted) is not enough. Often enough a comment is moderated because he contains special words – but in the context one can see it’s just harmless (as you already said).

    But whatever – back to the important things. :) I also can’t wait to see Alex’s new movies.

  • Cafélady

    I was referring, of course, on canucks comment #156…:)

  • Yourmom

    @Cafélady: he’s Eric northman, and nothing else don’t be delusional, the guy has no talent

  • Fan encounter

    It’s about time we got some negative side to Alex not always the oh he is always lovely gracious , smily, happy guy he is only human after all probably had an off day though

    Fan met met Alex but it wasn’t very pleasant.

    sad day

  • Nice

    Regular people have bad days too but no one post it on JJ. He is after all human not only a celebrity. He is nice, sweet guy end of story.

  • It’s called being human

    Not buying the bit he was rude, with all fan story’s nothing but praise and patience , more like never had time to stop and chat and why would he does Alex know the person NO ? does he always have to talk to everyone on the street like he is at some event , meet and greet fans NO
    Alex is a busy man better places to be and people to see not chin wag with some stranger.

  • Disney Villainess

    Ignoring all the weirdness in this thread……..

    @It’s called being human: Agreed.

    I have to say I have been really impressed by Skars lately. He’s starting to voice his opinions a little more, e.g. gun control laws, and in general he’s staring to become, in my eyes, less of a fake, rehearsed person in that he’s starting to not take a lot of sh*t from folk and showing more of his true colors. I, in some ways hope that this story is true because some people like to think that just because they’re a fan they can somehow bombard themselves into an actor’s space like they’re entitled or something(not saying this was the situation but that dude that tweeted that mess does sound bit like a disposable d*uche). Dude ain’t got to be nice to folks asses and cater to them all the damn time (it’s just not normal and kind of creepy and fake, IMO) especially when they’re being plain disrespectful. Let’s be real, this is the same gentle ass giant that will literally stand there and sign autographs to the very end, give the guy a break. I will say though that “#meany head” gave me a chuckle….#KANYESHRUG

  • Canuck

    @Fan encounter: Probably stole his parking spot ;)

    By the way, that tumblr account has some NSFW photos on it.

  • saw not met

    that guy didn’t even speak to Alex though.

  • ladybug

    @Disney Villainess: If you read the rest of the comments/questions on the blog it appears that this person met Alex at Comic-Con and thought he was very nice.
    So I think some of the ‘he’s a meany’ comes from having met him before and yes, the possible belief that Alex might recognize him from that. Plus the bizarre notion that celebs are always supposed to be perfectly cheerful even when they’re not working.
    If this were a consistent thing, I’d be worried.
    Regarding the gun control stuff, hopefully he will be less ‘manufactured’ in interviews. Bless him, I know he’s got his pat answers, and a lot depends on the quality of the interviewer, but I suspect there are a lot more opinions there, especially political, than he lets out.

    And the CK ad campaign that features Alex is in the March (HW Issue) of Vanity Fair:

  • Cafélady

    @ladybug: We had this already several times, that people try to show him once in a bad light. Of course, celebs are also only human beings – but somehow I doubt that this is happened like this “Fan Encounter” wrote. Or there is a true core, but this “fan” didn’t told the whole story. Often enough show some people a behave which one only can call just worse, but expect than in return a respectful behave of the other, no matter how they behave themselves.

    However – what’s up with this mentioned statement regarding gun control topic?? I fear I’ve missed this one somehow. Where (in what interview) talked he about this?

    @Cafélady: Two weeks ago at Sundance Ellen and Alex talked a bit about our Second Amendment:
