I love cottages without electricty in the middle of nowhere. I'd go.

rfisher: I'm pretty sure there are a helluva lot of women (and men) who would love to go as well. I mean, stranded in the middle of nowhere in a small cottage without modern conveniences, and mandatory skinny dipping with ASkars? Yum! I found the quotes on a website that just had celebrity quotes, and later saw it on an unofficial ASkars' website (he actually communicates with the people there, so occasionally there are direct bits from him.) Yeah, I'm True Blood Obsessed with my 4 websites I check for updates... But hey, in addition to myself I have to keep you guys updated. Though I try to avoid direct spoilers about actual events occurring in shows, so closer to the June date I'll have less as I force myself away from seeing things like 'In episode 1, Sookie does this, this and this, while Eric does this, Sam deals with this, and the person who took Bill is...'

Anyways, something fun: A True Blood Quiz.

The questions start easy but get harder. I got 14/15.

Also, a Q&A with Sam Trammell from Eyecon recently. http://truebloodnet.com/sam-trammell-eyecon/

14/15 for me too, and my stumbling block was how many eps Jason's been completely clothed. Out of all things... :lol:

I got the Jason one wrong too! I didn't think he was at least shirtless in every episode... but wow! Good thing Ryan Kwanten has self-discipline to keep his body like that!

I don't go for really dressy women. My family has a small cottage in the middle of nowhere in Sweden, it has no phone, TV or even shower - you have to swim in the lake to wash. I love it. Taking a girl there is a good indicator of whether she's right for me.

*twitch* *shudder*.................*head explodes* :swoon:

Mmmmm. Nice. Is there a link to this so I can send out to a friend?


A random thing: A quote on how ASkars picks his girlfriends:

By the by. I've gotten 5 people at work addicted to True Blood, even a straight guy! Whee :cheer2:

There are a few links:
http://www.showbizspy.com/article/198942/alexander-skarsgard-i-dont-like-dressy-women.html This one made me laugh because they twisted it to say that he "says he likes his ladies to feel comfortable stripping off at a moment’s notice." Hee hee, making it seem like if he wants to get some, he wants his lady willing... (over here Alex!!)

It's also on that unofficial website of his that I mentioned, which is http://skarsgardnews.com/news/. Just scroll down just a bit.

For those who are interested, the True Blood websites that I visit are:

You're guessing right. :lol: I was pretty sure I've seen some eps where he's not partially nekkid, but I guess I was wrong. :grope:

The full interview that includes the cottage quote. The entire Q&A is about what Alexander wants in a woman and how he expresses himself in relationships (and includes that he doesn't bit in public... private, maybe).

Some snippets:
- Says he doesn't care about age, as he's been with older and younger women - 5-10 years younger is fine, but he'd go for a woman 15 years older (which would make him, at 33 going for women ranging from early 20s to about 50. Wow!)
- Against infidelity - trust is huge (I read an interview a while ago where he said hell would have to freeze over before he'd cheat... and also hinted that he'd been cheated on in the past)
- He doesn't just come out and say how he feels, but he will make his feelings known

Could that man possibly get any more perfect? The article is in the new Glamour UK, and the picture is during his nerdy college professor dressing phase from a few months ago (yum!)

Veering away from the sexy ASkars, Ryan Kwanten has listed his dream guest stars for True Blood: Taylor Swift is his top one, and he'd also want Clint Eastwood and Jennifer Connolly. http://truebloodnet.com/ryan-kwanten-special-guest-star-wish-list-true-blood/

Personally, I'd love to see Michael Emerson (Ben from Lost) on the show. He's married to Carrie Preston (Arlene) and she has said that he loves the show and wants to be on it. I think he'd make an awesome creepy vampire, cause he just has that 'look'. She's been on his show (she played his mother, which is kind of creepily awesome) and since Lost is ending, he could now totally make it work. Maybe he could be Mickey - the vampire that Tara gets into trouble with in book 5, or Victor Madden

And FINALLY, in some sexy news...
Mehcad Brooks (Eggs) is part of the newest Calvin Klein underwear campaign and the guy doesn't just have a 6-pack, he has basically a 24 pack!

http://www.marieclaire.co.uk/news/fashion/441047/first-look-kellan-lutz-for-calvin-klein-underwear.html
It is going to be CK's most digital campaign to date, meaning there will be behind the scenes videos & interviews with the 4 leading guys, as well as 3D versions of the ads. The full digital campaign is set for release on March 1.

Yum! Though they're promoting Kellan Lutz as the main face of the new campaign, Mehcad is still getting some promo for it. And for those who don't know, he is now on a new TV show called 'The Deep End'.

Alright, cause you know I can't resist sharing TB stuff with you guys...

TV Tango listed Alexander's Eric as Lettie-Mae as one of TV's 10 best drag performances on a comedy or drama. . Considering the list includes things like Tom Hanks on Bosom Buddies, Jamie Farr on Mash, and even Martin Lawrence's 'Sheneneh' that's pretty awesome. There is a video clip included. The funniest thing is I read an interview with the costume designer where she said they didn't even have to get the outfit specially made for the ginormous Alex - they got Lettie-Mae's at K-Mart or something like that and just got another one in a bigger size and altered it to fit. http://www.tvtango.com/news/detail/id/156/top-10-drag-performances-on-tv-sitcoms-and-dramas

Casting spoilers for episode 5 (which it seems is going to have flashbacks...) from http://truebloodnet.com/true-blood-season-3-spoiler-news-episode-5-casting-call/


- Ulfrick, Eric's father, in a flashback scene set in 900 AD. A viking king in his 40s-50s with battle scars. Warm and has a good relationship with Eric, but with some tension because he wants Eric to learn responsibility and behave in a manner befitting royalty.
- Same flashback - Astrid, Swedish viking queen in her 30s with a new baby. Eric's mother.
- Colonol John Flood, Wolf Pack Leader in his 50s-60s, self-assured and dressed like a golfer with a military haircut. Involved in a Sookie/Alcide storyline.
- Summer, positive, nice girl in her 20s from Hoyt's church and who is attracted to him.

I'm intrigued with the flashback scene, but the year kind of gets me, since the TB bio of Eric says he was born in about 1046 (making him a bit younger than in the books, but still old), so how can he be in a flashback that takes place about 150 years before his birth? But I'm looking forward to it nonetheless. Sexy Swedish Viking Eric! And this could also explain why, in the books, Eric has no desire to be King.

YAY!! So excited.

:swoon: I saw one of the 24-pack version yesterday, but not the other one.

Was Cl Flood in book 3? I read that a couple of years ago, but I thought he didn't enter into the picture until later.

The obvious and cool choice for Eric's father would obviously be Stellan Skarsgård, but he might be pushing it agewise...

I don't think Cl Flood was in until book 4 when Alcide and Sookie were pretending to be engaged while looking into the murder of the pack VP's daughter. I'm wondering if they're going to pretend to be engaged in this book instead while doing their whole searching for Bill thing, instead of just pretending to be a couple.

As for the father, Stellan looks a bit younger IMO than he his, and that would be so completely awesome, though I think the TB people would consider it a bit more 'stunt casting'. It would especially be awesome since though they've been involved in the same project, Alex and Stellan have never actually worked 'together' (in Metropia they were in the same scenes, but voices recorded separately). How giddy would that make fans though?

I don't think they're going to have Alex play Eric in the flashbacks... if his mother is supposed to be in her 30s. I know women had children at a younger age then, but Eric would still probably have to be in his teens. Alex has a youthful look, but not quite a teenager. Maybe they could get one of his brothers to play young Eric... that would be even more awesome! A Skarsgard family fun day!

Also, I was looking at the True Blood HBO website, and I think that Alex's name is going to be moved up in the opening credits. They have him listed 3rd for cast members, after Anna and Stephen, but before Ryan, Sam and Rutina, who were the 'principal' names that didn't go alphabetically in previous seasons. Though they have the actors who played Malcolm, Diane and Liam listed as cast members but not Kristen Bauer (Pam) who is now upgraded to regular cast member, and no Joe Manganiello (Alcide) listed yet.
