Alexander Skarsgård as TARZAN

2014-08-27 // 0 Comments

TRUE BLOOD‘s Viking Vampire Eric Northman (Swedish actor/director Alexander Skarsgård) has been busy acting and modelling during the show’s seven years (loved him in Lars von Trier’s MELANCHOLIA), and now he has got three new big projects: Alexander Skarsgård plays Lord Greystoke in TARZAN, no, not in a loincloth … as a matured man who looks back [...]

Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin are producers

2014-08-25 // 2 Comments

There’s no way to seperate those two – as we saw in the first episode of TRUE BLOOD‘s Season 1, and as we learned again in Season 7.

Alas, Ryan is not cast as a Stackhousesque male beauty … Kwanten plays warrior monk Conall and had to have his head shaved for this. At least he gets to show off as a fighter as well [...]
