Alexander Skarsgard joins HBO’s “Big Little Lies”


Hurrah! A new year and a new project! And even better than that, it’s going to see our main man returning to a TV screen near you, as Alexander has joined the cast of a new HBO limited series Big Little Lies alongside Hollywood susperstar Nicole Kidman.

From The Hollywood Reporter

HBO’s Big Little Lies is firming up its cast.

The premium cable network on Tuesday confirmed that Shailene Woodley will play the third leading role and cast True Blood alum Alexander Skarsgard as Nicole Kidman’s on-screen husband. Additionally, Revenge grad James Tupper has been tapped to play Reese Witherspoon’s ex.

The comedic drama centers on three mothers (Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Woodley) of kindergartners whose apparently perfect lives unravel to the point of murder. Based on Liane Moriarty’s book of the same name, Big Little Lies hails from David E. Kelley (Boston Legal, Ally McBeal), who is writing the seven-episode limited series. HBO landed the project in May following a bidding war with Netflix.

Woodley, whose casting leaked in December, will play Jane, a single mom of modest means and a mysterious past who is new to not only Monterey but to the complicated social hierarchy of Mesa Elementary School, where her son is a student.

Skarsgard will return to HBO after rising to fame in the cabler’s vampire drama True Blood and portray Perry Wright, a successful businessman, father and devoted husband to Celeste (Kidman).

Tupper is set as Nathan Carlson, Madeline’s (Witherspoon) ex-husband, who remarried a beautiful and younger yoga instructor named Bonnie (Zoe Kravitz), who is tasked with co-parenting his teen daughter with his ex.

Additionally, HBO announced the supporting cast for the limited series:

Jeffrey Nordling as Gordon Klein, a high-powered executive, married to Renata (Laura Dern).

Santiago Cabrera as Joseph Bachman, who runs the local Monterey theater company and has an extramarital affair with Madeline (Witherspoon).

P.J. Byrne as Principal Warren Nippal, who runs the school in Monterey where the children of characters played by Witherspoon, Kidman, Woodley and Dern all attend first grade.

Kelen Coleman as Harper, a Monterey parent and neighbor of the lead characters.

Sarah Burns as Gabrielle, a Monterey parent and neighbor.

Darby Camp as Chloe Mackenzie, the 7-year-old daughter of Madeline.

Cameron and Nicholas Crovetti as Max and Josh Wright, 7-year-old twin sons of Celeste and Perry.

Ivy George as Amabella Klein, the 7-year-old daughter of Renata and Gordon.

Chloe Coleman as Skye Carlson, the 7-year-old daughter of Nathan and Bonnie.

Virginia Kull as Ms. Emily Barnes, the first-grade school teacher for the children.

Sarah Baker as Thea, a Monterey parent and neighbor.

Kathreen Khavari as Samantha, a Monterey parent and neighbor.

Larry Bates as Stu, a Monterey parent and neighbor.

Hong Chau as Jackie, a Monterey parent and neighbor of the leading characters.

Gia Carides as Melissa, a Monterey parent and neighbor of the leading characters.

They join a cast that also includes previously announced Adam Scott as Ed, Madeline’s husband, and Kathryn Newton as Abigail, Madeline’s teen daughter.

Kelley is attached to pen the series via his David E. Kelley Productions banner. Executive producers include Kelley, Pacific Standard’s Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea and Blossom Films’ Kidman and Per Saari. Jean-Marc Vallee will also exec produce and direct all seven episodes of Big Little Lies. Gregg Fienberg will also exec produce, while Australian novelist Moriarty will serve as a producer

Alexander Skarsgard is Number One on IMDb


That’s right folks, our King of the Jungle is finally sitting pretty at the top of the tree. Following the hugely positive reaction to the first images of Alexander as Tarzan, and the first trailer appearing on-line, our main man is the number one actor on IMDb this week.

It’s good news for The Legend of Tarzan too, which has risen 655 places to number five on the movie database. Margot Robbie completes the jungle rampage, looking gorgeous at number two.

The official trailer itself now has over 9,700,000 views on Youtube and is on course to hit the magic 10m mark very soon.

We could, at this point, post lots if nifty little celebration gifs, but I can’t be bothered so instead I’m just going to repost some random picture that just happens to be laying around……
