An Italian newspaper has released some news regarding Alex’s new film Disconnect along with the first promotional still featuring Alex and Paula Patton. Huge thanks to Linda for the translation via SkarsgardNews.
In “Disconnect” , Henry-Alex Rubin depicts a couple receiving treatment for infertility and becomes a victim of online theft. He is an ex-Marine, played by Alexander Skarsgard new sex symbol.
Disconnect by Henry-Alex Rubin displays a mosaic of human suffering , “exploring the consequences of being used to living everywhere, yet staying in the same place”. A couple, who’s relationship is threatened as they face fertility problems, is passionately reunited when the partners have to search for the money that has been stolen from them online, because of identity theft. He is a former marine, played by the new sex symbol Alexander Skarsgard, son of the famous actor Stellan: “In the movie, I’m married to Paula Patton- Alex says- we are both fond of online chatting, our marriage doesn’t work anymore. Then someone steals our identities and, since we think we know who the thief is, we decide to go and search for him together. The journey we start to find the online thief, played by Michael Nyqvist, who’s my friend and lives in Stockholm, two blocks away from me, triggers something between us and we eventually get back together”. For Skarsgard, this has been an exciting experience: “The movie contains many intertwined stories, just like Short Cuts by Robert Altman, I was really into it and I worked well with the director. The whole movie is about the way people relate to the digital era in which we live”. There’s a widowed former policeman who has to deal with his son, who is cyber-bullying a class mate. There are two parents trying to look after their shy and introvert son, who’s a talented musician and has tried to commit suicide many times before. There’s a journalist that wants a teenager, recruited on an adult-only website, to be the subject of a story that will put in danger the boy’s life and the journalist’s career.

‘True Blood’: Kristin Bauer On ‘Heartbreaking’ Eric And Pam Change
Everything is going to change in the wicked world of “True Blood” scene-stealer Pam and the actress who plays her, Kristin Bauer, is opening up about it. Warning: Spoilers for “True Blood” Season 5, Episode 4, entitled “We’ll Meet Again,” below.
Eric has released Pam. As her maker, he no longer has hold over her, and Bauer revealed to The Huffington Post how difficult that scene was to film.
“When I read it, I cried; at the table read, I cried; when we were rehearsing it, I was crying; when the camera was on my back, I was crying,” Bauer said in a phone interview in June. “It just was so emotional to me and so heartbreaking because he’s the only thing that matters to her. He will always be her maker, but the fact that that umbilical cord has been cut, that the baby was pushed out of the nest to learn to fly, just felt like a loss to Pam.”
Pam, who now has her own baby vamp in Tara, understands why Eric had to do what he did. “If you’ve been together for over a hundred years — to have that relationship change, it’s very emotional,” Bauer said. “I think that’s one of the harder things for Pam, any change or loss from Eric … That’s her whole thing. She doesn’t see her life without him and to try to have a life without him — I’m not sure she can do it– or wants to do it.”
With this big change happening toward the beginning of Season 5, Bauer said Pam will begin exploring the world without Eric by her side. “She has to see what her life will be,” she said. “This is completely new territory for her.”

‘True Blood’s’ Kristin Bauer on Pam and Eric’s Emotional Scene: ‘It Feels Like an End’
If watching the striking scene between Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and Pam on HBO’s True Blood on Sunday was a tough one for the duo’s fans, Kristin Bauer van Straten says that shooting the story twist was just as traumatic.
“I cried when I read the scene,” Bauer, 45, tells Celebuzz. “I cried in the table read, I cried in rehearsal, I cried when the camera was on my back, because it just for some reason felt so real and personal to me. There was no ‘OK, now I’m going to act.’ It was just there.”
After a maddening search for Eric, Pam returns to Fangtasia to find her maker waiting for her. Who knows how much time has passed since they last saw each other, but much has changed. Pam has her own progeny in Tara (Rutina Wesley). And Eric’s usual steely, confident demeanor has been dulled by the Authority’s threat to his life. In the end, he decides that she would be better off (and probably safer) if he released her from their maker-progeny relationship.
“It was so unexpected to us, to me, to Alex, but it’s very pointed and still the bond is always there,” Bauer explains. “It’s a little bit like when I went off the college and said, ‘Bye, daddy.’ You know you go off on your own, these rites of passage when a girl gets married. It was really deep to play. It was big for us.”
Skarsgard has become one of the most popular (and desired) actors on the HBO series. And, although she has worked with him over five years and in varying states of undress, Bauer says she hasn’t become immune to the Swedish actor’s charms.
“I’ve been glamoured by him,” the actress says. “Kristin loves Alex and I just think that he is just an amazing man and he’s my buddy. He is such an intelligent, sweet funny guy.”
“So any scene when I’ve had to play worrying about him burning in the parking lot, I can just turn on the waterworks, because all I do is think about Alex being hurt,” Bauer adds. “And then on top of it you have all the feelings that I’ve been creating and coming up with for Pam. So, I think I’m thoroughly glamoured.”
So, what’s next? Fans wonder if this is the end for Eric and Pam. And even if it isn’t, how long can the series keep them apart?
“It feels like an end,” Bauer admits as she awaits to complete filming on the season. “It feels like I’m lost. It feels like a big huge transition or change. And we all know from our own lives that big huge transitions and changes may turn out to be a great thing but still s—tty.”
“It’s just an unknown thing,” she goes on to say. “Although we do know that the bond between Eric and Pam, no matter what you call it, will never go away.”
In his new film Battleship, Alexander Skarsgård plays a rugged naval chief trying to save the world from evil aliens. But in real life, the devastatingly handsome, quietly captivating, and surprisingly introspective True Blood star would rather command an audience than the USS Sampson. As he sprints through the streets of New York, dodging cars and pedestrians, Idil Tabanca does her best to keep up.
While sipping an espresso at Fat Radish, a dimly lit restaurant on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, Alexander Skarsgård speaks with deep admiration about An Iliad, an off- Broadway restaging of Homer’s Trojan War classic featuring a well-reviewed performance by his True Blood costar Denis O’Hare. “If you’re into acting-acting, this is just the thing for you,” Skarsgård says, sounding like someone who’s into acting- acting. He looks down at his watch, worried that he’ll be late for the performance at the New York Theatre Workshop. “Do you want to run there with me?” he says, as he gulps the espresso like a tequila shot.
Once outside, the 6’4″ actor races across Houston Street, towering over the other pedestrians on the sidewalk. “We shot What Maisie Knew in Chinatown, out on the street,” he says, referring to the upcoming family drama, in which he stars opposite Julianne Moore. “It’s life, it’s real, it’s chaos, but it’s lovely,” says the 35-year-old Skarsgård with an accent that has all but disappeared after years spent embodying all manner of characters. “Let’s go for it, the light is green,” he says. We start to run across Second Street, when a car grinds to a halt inches away from him. “Shit, I’m going to miss the show,” he says, as he checks his watch again, ignoring the car that nearly turned the famous Swede into roadkill.
