Alexander Skarsgård in the News

Italian photo other projects movie ej scott choroideremia deborah ann woll true blood cast charitable causes birthday alexander skarsgard Alexander Skarsgård has been in Vancouver, Canada filming Hidden this past week, but there have been a couple of things to report.

The first look photo of Alex and Paula Patton appeared on the Italian website La Stampa for their movie Disconnect, which will be premiering at the Venice Film Festival on September 3rd. (It opens in US theatres on April 12, 2013). Thanks to LuvTheViking for the find, and to Ilaria who translated the article for AlexSkarsgard.net:

Excerpt from Alex: “In the movie I’m married to Paula Patton–he tells–both of us have the habit of chatting on the net, our marriage doesn’t work anymore. Suddenly somebody steals our identities and as we assume to know who might be responsible, we decided to go on the chase together. The journey we have to face to find the virtual thief , played by Michael Nyqvist who’s a friend of mine who lives in Stockholm, just two blocks from my house, starts a new sparkle between us and we get together again eventually. For Skarsgård it was a thrilling experience: “It’s a movie with complex tales, a little like Short cuts by Robert Altman, I was really into it, and I was really comfortable working with the director. All the plot is about how people cope with the digital era we’re living in.”

The fragrance is supposed to hit the stores in September, but we were lucky to find his ad (and a chance to smell the fragrance) in two magazines: the September issues Details (pages 155 & 156) and Maxim (pages 49 & 50). The ad has a website for the fragrance listed, but so far the link is not available. [Double-click on the thumbnails to enlarge]

bag of money 234x300 stephen moyer publications anna paquin alexander skarsgard The newest issue of TV Guide Magazine (dated August 13–26, 2012, a double issue) has their annual survey of the highest paid salaries of television stars. Their sources for the salary amounts are conversations with agents, network executives and studio heads.

Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgård are on the list for drama actors. TVG says, ‘premium cable networks such as HBO and Showtime can go higher with series that produce only 13 episodes a year.’

scifinowaugust2012 01 218x300 true blood stephen moyer season 5 publications cover anna paquin alexander skarsgard alan ball British science fiction magazine SciFiNow has a cover feature on True Blood in this month’s issue.  Although there are interviews with Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Alexander Skarsgård and Alan Ball, they seem to be the same responses from the press conference that was held in June, so you might get a sense of déjà vu when reading this.  And since this season five is yet to air on British TV, this article looks forward at that season and doesn’t really reveal anything new to the fans who have already seen the new episodes.

Here’s some good news for UK Truebies – Season five comes to FX channel on Monday 17th October, at 10pm!
