Hollywood actor Alexander Skarsgard has been in the acting industry for many years now but became a household name around the world thanks to his role as Eric Northman in the hugely successful HBO vampire series True Blood. Since then, Alexander has gone on to become one of the most sought after actors in Hollywood, with many roles coming up over the next few years.
Alexander Skarsgard will star in the upcoming movie The Giver, which includes an all-star cast featuring Brenton Thwaites, Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, Taylor Swift, Jeff Bridges, Cameron Monaghan, and Odeya Rush. The Giver is directed by Phillip Noyce, based on the screenplay that has been developed by Michael Mitnick from the Lois Lowry novel, with a release date planned for August 15, 2014.
Following that, we will then see Alexander Skarsgard starring alongside the likes of Kristen Wiig, Christopher Meloni, and Margarita Levieva, in the movie The Diary of a Teenage Girl, which has been directed by Marielle Heller, based on the screenplay that she adapted herself from the Phoebe Gloekner novel. The Diary of a Teenage Girl is set to hit the big screen sometime in 2015.
The Alexander Skarsgard movie that we are most looking forward to seeing is the live action adaptation of Tarzan, which sees the actor in the titular role. As well as starring Alexander Skarsgard, the Tarzan cast also includes Margot Robbie, Samuel L Jackson and Christoph Waltz. Tarzan will be directed by David Yates and has a release date planned for July 1, 2016.
That is a lot of Alexander Skarsgard for the next few years and he also has the movies Hidden and The Vanguard to come, as well as his continued role in True Blood. We look forward to it.
