Alex, Kirsten and Kiefer were interviewed for E! News. They talked about “Melancholia” and Kirsten commented about “True Blood”, told that Alex’s vampire is your favorite on show. Check the video: released a video today of Alexander Skarsgård talking about the movies he has worked on during the True Blood hiatus.

In the video interview below, you can hear a rather relaxed Skarsgård talking about:

  • How he learned about Melancholia
  • If he’d ever visited his father on a Lars von Trier set
  • How his father urged him to work with von Trier
  • How tightly-scripted the movie was
  • How von Trier works out and films the scenes
  • What filming the star-studded wedding reception was like
  • Whether he got any background on his character
  • How much he knew about the second half of the movie
  • How busy he’s been keeping during the off-season of “True Blood”
  • He talks a little about his upcoming movies The East, What Maisie Knew and Disconnect.
  • That crazy Battleship trailer!

    One of the most unlikely relationships to emerge from “True Blood”‘s witch-rich fourth season was that deliciously uneasy alliance between avowed, Sookie-loving rivals Bill and Eric (expertly played by Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgård). And if last season’s Russell Edgington cliffhanger is any indication, the pair will once again have to join forces to bring down a shared foe. Man, waiting does suck!

    Thankfully, when we sat down with Alexander recently to chat about his upcoming movie “Melancholia,” he was happy to devote a few moments to theorizing about what’s in store for our favorite Bon Temps residents. And, more specifically, whether we can expect more bromantical moments between Bill and Eric.

    “Yes, I think so,” Alex said with a chuckle. “That’s been fun. Stephen is awesome. I love working with him. It’s an interesting dynamic between those two guys, those two characters. I could see that. I don’t know. I haven’t read—they’re breaking season five now, so I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I’m sure there’s going to be some nice Bill and Eric moments.”

    We’ll take it, Alex! And begin dreaming up plotlines in which Eric and Bill storm into the MTV Newsroom to save us from a pack of marauding were-rats who’ve been hiding in the New York subway system. Because, you know, “True Blood” could do with a field trip to Manhattan. Right?

    NEW YORK — Kate Bosworth, Alexander Skarsgård and James Marsden have teamed up for a new millennium re-imagining of the classic 1971 Dustin Hoffman thriller “Straw Dogs.” The violent, dark film revolves around a young couple (Bosworth, Marsden) who move back to her Southern hometown and find themselves pretty unwanted by the locals, including Bosworth’s ex, played by “True Blood” vamp Skarsgård.

    “I had not seen the original film when I was offered the role; I had read the script first,” Bosworth told MTV News at the premiere on Thursday. “I knew the original was a real cult classic. I read it and it was really intriguing, and then I watched the film, and I was pretty blown away; big shoes to fill. I thought, ‘Oh my god, this is going to be quite an intense one,’ but I love a challenge.”

    Marsden was thrilled by the chance to tackle a character that was very new to him, even if it had been done before.

    “That’s honestly one of the reasons I was drawn to it,” he said. “It’s a terrific role [and] in the 1971 original, my role was played by Dustin Hoffman, and I’m hoping most people will forget that. But, you know, it’s an actor’s dream role. So it was a tough thing to turn down.

    “I knew of the original, but I hadn’t seen it,” he added, noting he wanted to make sure “I had my own responses to [the story] before I was ever affected by seeing the original.” He said that he didn’t want to go into shooting “aping” Hoffman.

    Skarsgård also found himself with a major challenge. As the film’s bad guy, he wanted to make sure he wasn’t totally unlikable. “There was something that I felt there was a potential of exploring the relationship between the three of them, the dynamic there where I felt it could be interesting if you almost like Charlie in the beginning of the movie, and you’re not sure if you want Amy to stay with David or go to Charlie,” he said.

    Charlie’s motives come from a really deep emotional place, Skarsgård added. “And, there was a sadness there that I wanted to capture,” he said. “I didn’t want to make it easy for the audience. I wanted to be more interesting than that.”


    For CBS local, Alex gave a interview to Good Day Sacramento, talked about “Straw Dogs” film, and sure, also about True Blood. Check the interview:
