50 Shades of Grey Casting: Alexander Skarsgard “Can Kill Any Role”
No official news yet, but Alexander Skarsgard has fellow True Blood cast member Kristin Bauer van Straten’s vote of approval for the titular role in 50 Shades of Grey.
Kristin works closely with Alexander — she plays Pam, right-hand vampire to Alexander's Eric Northman. When asked about Christian Grey casting speculation by PopSugar, Kristen gave her full confidence to the idea.
“I’ll watch Alex do anything,” she gushed, “and I do for 14 hours a day!”
She added, “He can kill any role.”
Kristin notes that sometimes she can take a backseat to her co-star, but she’s okay with that. “I’m the conduit to Alex. When I walk around in the world, people say they like Pam too, but then like, the next breath is, ‘and Alex’!”
So, has Alexander let her in on any casting secrets? Unfortunately, no. “I think [we actors] are a little superstitious [about roles],” she says, “I know that’s how I am.”
The suspense is killing us, but at least we have testimony that Alexander would be a great choice. Good to know!
Alexander, naturally, is not the only TV vampire on the gossip shortlists! The Vampire Diaries’ Ian Somerhalder is another favorite.
What do you think? Is Alexander your pick for Christian Grey?
