Alexander Skarsgård walking to the South PoleSet your DVR’s True Blood and Alexander Skarsgård fans because tonight, March 26 at 8pm/7c, Matt Lauer will host “Prince Harry’s South Pole Heroes,” an NBC News exclusive Primetime special that takes viewers on an epic expedition to the South Pole.

Granted rare access, cameras are with Prince Harry, a determined group of veterans, and actors Alexander Skarsgård and Dominic West as they embark on an emotional and hazardous journey to one of the harshest places on earth.

In his second expedition with the Walking With The Wounded charity, Prince Harry joins three teams of veterans as they attempt to ski across 130 miles of ice and snow, an effort to raise awareness for the needs of wounded veterans.

Ahead of the expedition, Prince Harry said:

“I’ve fought alongside Americans before, alongside Aussies and Canadians, but mainly Americans I find myself fighting alongside, and you know, you fight together, you die together and you get wounded together – so why not recover together as well.”

In addition to interviews with Prince Harry, NBC News has exclusive access to Team USA: Therese Frentz, a Survivor of a suicide bombing in Baghdad; Mark Wise, an amputee who also underwent facial rebuilding after an IED incident in Afghanistan; Ivan Castro, a blind paratrooper who sustained life-threatening injuries in Iraq; and Margaux Mange, a soldier who suffered a traumatic brain injury in Baghdad. “Prince Harry’s South Pole Heroes” captures the physical and mental strength of these men and women as they struggle for survival in harsh and unpredictable conditions.

alexander-skarsgard-022512- (5)The casting has now been confirmed for the upcoming 3D version of “Tarzan” starring Alexander Skarsgård.

The production will begin later this year with “Wolf of Wall Street’s,” Margot Robbie, who will play the part of Jane, Christoph Waltz will be a Belgian soldier who tries to capture Tarzan in exchange for a ransom in diamonds, and Samuel L. Jackson is to be the US Ambassador to the CongoDavid Yates, who made the last four “Harry Potter movies,” will direct.

With shooting due to start, Skarsgård, not surprisingly, is hitting the gym regularly to prepare for playing the loin-clothed one.

The timing is good for what should be the Swedish actor’s major big-screen breakthrough, as his long-running role as True Blood vampire Eric Northman is “sadly” coming to an end.

 

On another, but related topic: Alex’s father, Stellan Skarsgård is now lined up to play the part of the shady oligarch in an upcoming thriller based on John le Carré’s novel “Our Kind of Traitor.”  Ralph Fiennes was originally to play the part, but had to drop out.

 

We congratulate both father and son on landing the roles.

walkingforwoundedWalking With The Wounded raises funds to support the career transition from the military to civilian life. This is the future that Walking With The Wounded is addressing. The funds raised finance new qualifications, courses and further education for all Wounded, Injured and Sick personnel that have been disadvantaged by injury; mental or physical, as a result of either conflict or training and extends to current service leavers and veterans

Below is the first official trailer for Alexander Skarsgård’s upcoming film, “The Giver.” Alex plays the part of Jonas’s father. The film is based on the best selling book and is scheduled to be released in theaters on August 15. Below is a photo of Alex from the trailer. He can be seen twice starting at about 0:26 and 0:34, but don’t blink or you’ll miss him like I did the first time.

The film stars Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, Alexander Skarsgård and yes, even Taylor Swift are all in the Hollywood adaptation of The Giver, which gives junior high school kids one less book they will actually have to read for school.

Based off the book by Lois Lowry, The Giver is set in a utopian future where the people of Earth no longer feel the terrible emotions of their ancestor — no more pain, no more sadness, no more suffering. However, it’s one person’s job to savor all these emotions for the new society, and that person is called The Receiver. Main character Jonas is The Receiver’s new apprentice; suffice to say, the more you learn about the real world, the less utopian it becomes.

Alexander Skarsgård Will Star in Warner Brothers “Tarzan”

Posted by Lynnpd On February - 11 - 2014

alexs6True Blood’s Eric, Alexander Skarsgård will star in the upcoming Warner Brothers film, “Tarzan” and will play the legendary title character who was orphaned as a baby and raised in the jungle before he returns to London.

Warner Bros. has officially started pre-production on a new live-action 3D “Tarzan” movie that will also star Margot Robbie, Samuel L. Jackson and two-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz, the studio announced Tuesday.

David Yates, who directed the last four “Harry Potter” blockbusters, will direct from a screenplay based on the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Jerry Weintraub (WB’s “Ocean’s” trilogy) will produce with David Barron and Alan Riche, while Peter Riche will also be involved in a producing capacity.

WB’s domestic distribution president Dan Fellman also announced that “Tarzan” will hit U.S. theaters on July 1, 2016.

“We have assembled a phenomenal international cast to tell this extraordinary story. Warner Bros. has also enjoyed long and successful collaborations with both David Yates and Jerry Weintraub, and we look forward to seeing what they and the entire team have in store for this timeless tale,” said Greg Silverman, president of creative development and worldwide production for Warner Bros.

“Tarzan has been an enduring and enigmatic figure in literature and cinema for more than a century. The adventures of a man who was torn between two worlds has entertained and intrigued people young and old, and we are excited to bring him to the screen for a new generation,” said Sue Kroll, WB’s president of worldwide marketing and international distribution.

This is a perfect entry for the summer movie season corridor, with a terrific combination of action, adventure, romance and suspense that is sure to appeal to a broad audience,” added Fellman.

I am so pleased to be reuniting with the team at Warner Bros. on this thrilling project. David Yates and I are going to be using the best of today’s technology in creating this new adventure, and we can’t wait to get started,” said Weintraub.
