: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...

What? Are there more of them? Swedes get all the luck. :drama:

I don't think Cl Flood was in until book 4

I must admit I've wondered if they'll mash books 3 and 4 together a bit for s3...




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 thought it'd be funny exactly because of the Metropia thing. :lol: I think Alexander did his voice parts in Stockholm and Stellan did his in NYC or something, months later.



Maybe they could get one of his brothers to play young Eric... that would be even more awesome! A Skarsgard family fun day!


I'm not sure if they look similar enough? Admittedly I can never remember what Bill and Valter look like :lol: Valter might be young enough though, the others are 20-30


What? Are there more of them? Swedes get all the luck. :drama:

Alexander Skarsgård comes from an acting family. His father is Stellan Skarsgård (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001745/), and three of his younger brothers are acting as well. The oldest of them, Gustaf Skarsgård, is currently playing Hamlet at Stockholms Stadsteater and is quite famous in his own right in Sweden. :) The other two (Bill (:lol:) and Valter) are younger, and haven't been in much. I don't know if Valter is serious about it or if he's just sort of stumbled into it, but I think he's 14-15 years old, so I suppose there's still time to find out. ;)

Lots of stuff...

Some definitely big casting news... Meet Debbie Pelt!! (http://truebloodnet.com/true-blood-season-3-casting-news-get-ready-debbie-pelt/) I really hope they give her either a really bad wig or a really bad haircut, to match the description of the character in the books (since Sookie constantly thinks about how bad her hair is)

Kevin Alejandro (Lafayette's new love interest) talked in an interview about his time so far on True Blood (http://truebloodnet.com/true-blood-kevin-alejandro-nelsan-ellis-alfre-woodard/)

Also, Joe Manganiello has a twitter account at http://twitter.com/joemanganiello. Just saw it when I saw the Debbie casting news. He has a few TB things up there, mentioning table reads, costume fittings and fun things like

FULL MOON TONIGHT! HOWWWWWLLLLL!!!!!
Also seems he's working out quite a bit for the role - he mentions meeting his trainer for his 2nd workout of the day.

An Interview with Anna Paquin (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1248559/True-Bloods-Anna-Paquin-starting-family-star-fianc-Stephen-Moyer.html) where she talks about Stephen and starting a family.


I must admit I've wondered if they'll mash books 3 and 4 together a bit for s3...
I think they are what with the Crystal introduction but I don'tthink they'll do the big storyline involving her and Jason until season 4 since Sookie already has to deal with Bill being missing - having 2 missing people would be too much. Unless he's not kidnapped, but just turned into a werepanther in season 3. Also, I know they aren't doing the big book 4 Eric storyline this season, since Alan Ball has said that in season 4 Eric will have amnesia. God I'm so excited. Hopefully we'll soon learn the exact season 3 start date, instead of just 'June'. But in some release date news:Season 2 will be released on DVD and Blue Ray on May 25.

And about the Skarsgard family, yeah, Alex is the oldest of 7 kids (though the youngest is his half brother through Stellan and his 2nd wife). The only non-actors are Sam (I think he's a doctor), his sister who is a model, and the baby, who isn't even 1 and probably spends his days spitting up.

Looked up Bill Skarsgard and he does look quite a bit like a younger Alex, though with darker hair and a much more mischievous 'bad boy' look.

Younger one (I think he's with Gustaf) (http://i891.photobucket.com/albums/ac118/ROBsessedBlog2/ALEX/GustafBill.jpg)

According to IMDB, Bill is 19, and if the fit him with a wig like Alex, he could definitely play a younger version of him.

Tried looking for pictures on google of Valter, but they all seem to be from when he was younger. But came across t his in my search... Toddler Alex (http://media.photobucket.com/image/valter%20skarsgard/magicdancer/Alexander/AlexToddler-2.jpg)
And this Picture collage of the 6 oldest Skarsgard kids (can definitely see why his sister is a model) (http://14.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_kw20m7xzoI1qagyr2o1_500.png)

Such wishful thinking we have going on, eh? Planning our dream guest stars? Hee hee, how awesome would it be though? Stellan is in Thor, which is filming in LA right now (still can't believe Alex didn't get the part) so could maybe take a day to play Viking!Daddy, but I still think that the TB people might consider casting Skarsgards in guest roles could be considered 'stunt casting' and they've said that's something they don't want to do on the show (a la Snoop Dogg's desire to be on the show). In any case, I'm excited for all of the Eric flashback scenes it seems we'll be having. Between this one with his family, and the fact that we know Godric will be in some and we've heard there's going to be some 'tag team action'... YAY! Not quite as excited for the Bill flashbacks though that will seemingly be happening what with their casting his wife and all that.

Finally, kind of random sounding, but Captain America is going to be cast soon, and Alex is one of the names that has been tossed around... since he JUST missed out on getting Thor (dude, so wrong!) maybe this will be his superhero chance? Probably not, but it would be pretty cool.

And more...

Beyond the Pole (ASkars' gay Norwegian explorer indie film) is having its west coast premiere in San Francisco tomorrow (Friday) at Roxie Cinema. Word is that ASkars is going to try to make it if his TB filming schedule permits.

And another casting notice for the flashback scene...
[BUXOM SWEDISH SERVANT GIRL] Female, 20's, Attractive. This servant girl is seen in a flash back to 900 AD with Eric (ALEXANDER SKARSGARD). Eric kisses her passionately and fondles her breasts. ROLE HAS NO LINES AND WILL REQUIRE PARTIAL TOPLESS NUDITY Please OH PLEASE can I have that role?

I guess that means though that no younger Skarsgards will be needed for said scene.

And I had a thought regarding our dream of the Stellan appearing in the show... I was remembering how a while ago in an interview Alex mentioned that there was an actor they were trying to get to appear on the show and how it would be a dream to work with them... could this be it? Could it have been Stellan? If this is true, unless the casting release has been put out to throw fans off, it would seem things didn't work out. But we can still hope!

Definitely looking forward to episode 5 now. It's apparently titled Trouble and seems like it's going to be very Eric-centric.h

Yet another update from me...

This time regarding our dream of Daddy Skarsgard and a direct comment from his rep at http://au.eonline.com/uberblog/watch_with_kristin/b165916_will_alex_skarsgaringrds_real_dad_play.htm l. Well boo.

Also from the last casting notice I posted about the servant girl Eric 'plays' with it seems that they won't be casting a younger actor to play Eric there, since they specify Alex's name in the casting notice. Though that could also just be to entice actresses to audition for the part...

And even more...

Michael Emerson possible TB role (http://truebloodnet.com/michael-emerson-possible-role-true-blood/)
- Ben from Lost and Carrie Preston (Arlene's) husband.

“We’ve heard that the producers of True Blood are so taken with Michael “Ben” Emerson’s work on Lost that they “really want him” in the show, and that they will write him in for a part of unspecified length. Our source? Emerson’s wife, Carrie Preston, who was fairly definite on the point at the Hawaiian International Film Festival.”
- article says that he would love to just be a regular human having a drink in a bar, but my guess is they'd give him something more substantial

Rutina Wesley in TV Guide (http://truebloodnet.com/rutina-wesley-tv-guide-magazine/) - she talks about the SAG awards. Plus we get to see a picture with her super cute husband.

I'm sorry, someone other than Joel Kinnaman (first from the left) was in that picture? :swoon: :lol: Oh, and that's Gustaf Skarsgård at the far right.

I haven't seen any recent pics of Valter either, the newest I managed to find are maybe 3 years old, and you obviously change a lot between 12 and 15, he *is* blond though.

From the casting article about Stellan:
"In lieu of Stellan, fans have suggested casting Max von Sydow, Bill Nighy or Viggo Mortensen. Von Sydow and Mortensen both actually speak Swedish"

I'd be bloody surprised if Max von Sydow didn't speak Swedish considering the fact that he *is* Swedish! :rolleyes::lol: Then again, he's also 80 years old, so misses the casting call by 30 years. :P

Another amazeballs suggestion I read was Dolph Lundgren. (http://scrapetv.com/News/News%20Pages/Entertainment/Images/dolph-lundgren-smiling.jpg) Swedish and 52 years old. And totally looks like a viking.

As for the pictures, Bill is totally a younger, darker, more rebellious looking version of his biggest brother. And Gustaf is cute too (though as horrible as it is to say, he's probably the least of a typical 'looker' of the family.)

In some pissy news, Ted at E! has been badmouthing Alex by saying he made it known he didn't particular want to be making out with Lady Gaga filming the Paparazzi video, which apparently has led to her having an eating disorder (a year after the fact). His reports say that Alex didn't 'say' anything to her, but made comments to others on set and 'made looks'. Which is ludicrous, since she has said how amazing he was on set and how she would like to be friends with him (and how she enjoyed kissing him).

He would probably be up for it too! It depends on the shooting schedule though, since he's busy hosting the Swedish Eurovision semis (I think he lives primarily in Spain these days, so unfortunately it's not like he's next door).

Except for Gustaf's...hair issues, I actually think he's more attractive than Alexander (the young 'uns are a little too young for me to make a statement yet, but Sam seems be be coming along nicely ;)), although I think both are kinda average looking to be honest. There's no shortage of tall, blonde men in these parts. :lol:

What's Sweden's immigration laws? Do you need people to teach X-ray? I could work as a Viking archaeologist. Of course the digging season is pretty short. I'd like one of those tall blonde men. :)

Haha I'm keen to head there for tall blond and sexies!

Alright, jumping to the gossip train, it's starting to seem like it's just a matter 'official' confirmation...

Kate Bosworth may have been dining with a group on the tented patio of West Hollywood's Chateau Marmont, but she was especially attentive to one member of the dinner party: True Blood star Alexander Skarsgard. The actress got up to talk to him and had her arm around his neck, and even snuck him a kiss on the lips. Eventually sitting next to each other, they were even more affectionate, rubbing each other's backs and sharing kisses. Though clearly enamored, they didn't neglect fellow diners: Skarsgard told lots of stories, and the loud group continued their evening until just before midnight.
Source: People (http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20342078,00.html) (which is usually the most reliable on celeb gossip)

And away from gossip, there is a video interview of ASkars from the UK for season 2 of True Blood at http://truebloodnet.com/video-alexander-skarsgard-interviewed-fx-uk-part-1/

And Beyond the Pole (his indie movie) had its San Francisco showing on the weekend, and reviews have been good for the movie. Apparently ASkars tried as hard as he could to get there, knowing many got tickets hoping to see him, but got his TB filming schedule at the last minute and had to film until 6am then first thing the next filming day.

I posted it a bit ago, but have posted so many things in the last few days. What are peoples thoughts on the casting of Debbie Pelt (http://truebloodnet.com/true-blood-season-3-casting-news-get-ready-debbie-pelt/)?

I don't think it's a great choice for Debbie........not how I pictured her anyhow. I pictured someone with curlier hair, and very high maintenance looking.......maybe dark brown hair. We'll have to see how they change her appearance for the show though, she might work ok.

I was picturing Debbie to look a bit trashier for some reason. Possibly because Sookie rags on her hair all the time. :lol:

I know out of work archaeologists, but X-ray technicians and teachers might very well be welcome, so you might be in luck. ;)

I'm hoping they give her a kick ass horrible wig for the Debbie part. And hopefully she can bring the 'bitchface' required for the role. It's the same thing with the casting of Crystal - the hair doesn't match. But then again, Carrie Preston (Arlene) is blonde and wears a red wig, and Anna Paquin is a brunette (but it's weird seeing pictures of her with brown hair now since she rocks the blonde). So hair is an easy fix I guess.

I dunno, for Debbie I pictured something more like AnnaLynne McCord (from 90210) (http://static.squidoo.com/resize/squidoo_images/-1/draft_lens2173521module11793334photo_1235185961ann alynne-mccord-3.jpg). Not her hair, but her actual 'look' is more Debbie to me. But we'll see... as long as she has chemistry with Joe Manganiello then I'm good I guess (and I'm a huge supporter of him being cast on the show for his part. YUM!)

Another article (http://hollywoodcrush.mtv.com/2010/02/08/true-blood-casting-update-daddy-for-alexander-skarsgard-still-needed-brit-morgan-is-debbie-pelt/) announcing Brit Morgan being cast as Debbie, and the need for a Viking!Daddy.

And in fun news, this week has had the birthdays of Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica) and Jim Parrack (Hoyt). Happy birthday!
