True Blood Star Returns to the Silver Screen in Disconnect


Now that Season 5 of HBO’s True Blood is winding down, we’re all looking for new ways to see what our favorite stars are up to. Fortunately for fans ofAlexander Skarsgård, he has been keeping busy filming a couple of new movies.

In the upcoming film Disconnect, Skarsgård joins a star studded cast including Jason Bateman, Hope Davis, Frank Grillo, Paula Patton, Michael Nyqvist, Andrea Riseborough, and Max Theriot. Details about Skarsgård’s character are unclear at this point, but it’s clear from one of the photos that he plays a married man. Hopefully we can expect many more promo shots from the film before its April 2013 release date. Here is the official synopsis of the film:

Disconnect interweaves multiple storylines about people searching for human connection in today’s wired world. Through poignant turns that are both harrowing and touching, the stories intersect with surprising twists that expose a shocking reality into our daily use of technology that mediates and defines our relationships and ultimately our lives.

Sounds very interesting. In addition to Disconnect, Skarsgård will also co-star in the upcoming What Maisie Knew, a film that centers on a little girl caught in a custody battle between her parents. Skarsgård will be very busy in the next few weeks and months doing promotional work for both films, which means more photos for us.

True Blood Star to Play Julianne Moore’s Husband:

True Blood's Alexander SkarsgårdAlexander Skarsgård (True Blood’s vampire sheriff, Eric Northman) has joined the cast of the upcoming dramedy What Maisie Knew, an adaptation of the novel by Henry James.  The film’s story centers on Maisie, a 6 year old girl:

“Enmeshed in the bitter divorce of her mother, a rock and roll icon, and her father, a charming but distracted art dealer.”

Playing Maisie’s mother is Julianne Moore (Chloe) and her father will be played by Steve Coogan (Night At The Museum).  Skarsgård has signed on to play Julianne Moore’s new husband.  The film is currently in the pre-production stage and is being produced and paid for by Red Crown Productions, with Scott McGehee and David Siegel directing.  Shooting has been scheduled for August, in New York City. There should be plenty more to hear about this upcoming film in the next few months.

What do you think, Truebies?  Is it mere coincidence that Skarsgård has chosen two husband roles in as many years?  Could he be ready to settle down?  Leave a comment if you live in the NYC area and plan on trying to catch a glimpse of the action.
