Almost the True Blood
final. What will I do when there's no new episodes?! ASkars
did two radio interviews the other day, I'm not sure which was worst. The first one
, one the guys had no idea who Alex was which led to an awkward "are you related to that other Skarsgård guy?", Alex of course assumes he means Stellan, and Alex is like "yeah he's my father", but then he realises the guy means Peter Sarsgaard
(how on earth can he be Alex's father, Alex is only 5 years younger than him), and Alex is all "uh no ... There's no K there, his name is Peter Sarsgaard
. Stellan Skarsgård is my father. Peter is another.. dude
". Though the guy did admit to only being able to watch 10 minutes of the show (because his young kids are always around), but that's no excuse for not doing you're research (and only IMDBing
him during the interview). The second one
, went a little better because they knew about the show and Alex (and got his father right) but they had a comedian on who kept talking over Alex
(which meant you couldn't hear his answers, not that the questions where very interesting). Alex
took it very
well both times though, so kudos to him for putting up with them. I did like this though:
I: Has your character hooked up with Sookie?
A: Uhhh... no.
I: He loves her though, doesn't he?
A: Uhhh... no. Love is overrated.
I: What's you're deal? You married? You got kids?
A: Uhh No I'm not.
I: You dating anybody?
A: Uhh Not right now.
I: Come on. Now you're going to have a bunch of Goth girls coming after you though.
They did talk about how he got the role for True Blood
, many people assume he did Generation Kill
then got True Blood
, but Alex explained Alan Ball
came to him 2 years ago
with True Blood but it was pushed back, then when it was on again Alex wasn't available because he was in Africa
filming Gen Kill, but True Blood was once again pushed back because of the writers strike. I never thought I'd say this, but THANK GOD FOR THE WRITER'S STRIKE!
Only 2 good things came out of it, Alex on True Blood
and Dr Horrible
. Also Zeljko Ivanek
who played the creepy and awesome Magister on True Blood is going to be in this week's House
, and I heard he's going to be on Heroes
Also so my entire post isn't just about Alex again
. How cute
has Betty/Daniel been in the past few episode of Ugly Betty
