Soul of Fire, Rolling to True Blood Weekend
How cool would it be to see Alexander Skarsgard act opposite his dad, well known Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgård, on True Blood?
Sadly, it ain't happening...
Stellan, who you may recognize from Good Will Hunting, Pirates of the Caribbean, Angels & Demons, many Lars von Trier films and even Entourage, tells me he's been asked to be on the show, but, well, he's too busy.
"I don't have the time," he told me while promoting the upcoming DVD release of his latest flick, Thor.
Good to know it's not because he doesn't appreciate his son's work. "I think it's very well done and he's great in it," Stellan said.
In fact, he wants you to know that he takes no credit for Alex's massive success. "I don't give him any advice at all, because for my kids, from the age of 16 their lives are their responsibility," he said. "If he had the feeling that it was thanks to me that he had any of his success, it would just be half a success. He owes everything to himself."
