This is Alexander Skargård.
He is a 6’4 Swedish import that packs more talent in his pinky that most actors can find in their entire body. He is incredibly good looking and by all accounts an all around great guy to know. I personally have not had the pleasure, but I look forward to the day. He has a long list of film and TV credits that you can read about at your leisure on IMDB where he is credited as an actor, writer and director.
I read an article today about the current status of his upcoming release Tarzan that made my head explode and my pocketbook clench shut tighter than a virgin’s thighs at a college kegger.
And I quote: “And a high-level executive at another studio expresses doubt about the viability of the Tarzan property and casting a relative unknown, Skarsgard, as the lead, saying, “You shouldn’t make that movie without an actor you’re dying to see in the part.”
Yeah, I need a minute to breathe….(deep breath in, deep breath out.)
So, I live in a world where political leaders running for office belong in a big top tent more than the White House. I live a in a world where after seventeen years at a company I planned to retire from just told me to piss off, cause we are selling the place and we don’t need you. I live in a world where absurdity is the norm and trifling is the flavor of the day.
I can deal with that, ALL of that, and probably even survive it. Imma big girl. I know how to bootstrap my way around this fucked up little galaxy but…this? THIS is over the fucking line!
Let me tell you what I am not dying to see.
I am not dying to see another rehash of Peter Fucking Pan.
I am not dying to see fucking Ben Affleck pretend to be Bruce Wayne and I need no fingers to count the shits I give about Superman throwing down with him.
Frankly, I don’t think my life will be changed either for better or worse by a Harry Potter spin off, but hey, I could be wrong about that one.
I AM DYING TO SEE ALEX AS TARZAN!
How dare you say otherwise? I have my quickly dwindling funds set aside with a post it that says TARZAN. I may be living in a box come summer 2016 but I will leaving it long enough to see that fucking movie.
I want to see this movie because Alex is in it. That’s it, that’s all, and I am willing to bet that most if not all of his fans feel the same way. Which is every single solitary fucking woman I know. You know the 53% if the voting population that Hillary is always going on about?
In a world where one bad comment can destroy a thing before it even opens it eyes I can’t express how shitty it is for movie execs to be trash talking this film before it even has a chance. It’s EP passed away, it’s director is working fucking weekends to finish the editing because he has been reassigned and they are blaming the so called “new guy”?
No. No fucking way.
If they can manage to decide to give this movie its due and finish it and actually let it come to theaters then I will go. Until then, fuck Warner Brothers, they won’t see a dime of my money.
Again, this is Alexander Skarsgård. He makes great fucking movies. I will always pony up to support him.
