Roman Godfrey is such a creep. It makes me think that Bill Skarsgard might be a creep. I don’t even care though. That face, those eyes, that style… well, that’s still a character. I haven’t seen Bill Skarsgard in any other roles but I couldn’t picture anyone else in the role of the blood eating rich kid upir.
Allegedly, Bill is as cultured as Roman, he’s a fan of museums (and Louis CK), he doesn’t recoil from heavy reading and has a taste for quality cuisine. Rather varied and mature interests for a man of 23 and I’m impressed.
…And let’s face it Skarsgard has good genes.
When asked why the Skarsgards make great blood drinkers recently, Bill responded that it must be something in their ancient Viking blood. How could you not love that?
He hated the end of season two as much as we all did.
Look at those puppy dog eyes!
I love me some little Skarsgard. Right now the fate of Hemlock Grove is unconfirmed. No official news for season 3. I’ve been burned on this too many times, but i think we’ll be seeing more of little Skarsgard no matter what.
Mario Kart 8, work and training for a 5k has eaten my blogging life. I didn’t pick up my comics yet this week, so I figured I’d tell you what’s on my mind.
Penny Dreadful, which I have been loving is renewed for season 2! After 4 episodes! FINALLY a show that I like doesn’t get axed with plotlines hanging around everywhere!
Fred Williamson, AKA “the Hammer” ex-football player and total badass has a new movie called The Last Hit Man. Written, directed and starring Williamson, with Franco Nero and Gary Busey. I got to meet Fred Williamson at TerrorCon over the weekend. I attended his Q&A where he said he turns down 4 or 5 movies every week (every WEEK) because the black characters are written as spoofs or goons or idiots who die in the first 5 minutes. Kudos to him for being uncompromising and making it work on his own terms, but shame on Hollywood for presenting the choice as “don’t work” or “degrade yourself”. It’s a damn shame.
He’s also in his 70s and will still kick your ass.
Under the Dome is back on June 30th, Stephen King himself releases/reads the intro to snowball some hype. We have to wait until July 9th for Extant- Halle Berry fronts this scifi CBS show… about a woman impregnated by aliens after a trip to space. +3 for diversity, +1 for Spielberg, +2 for women in science… but impregnated by aliens? yeesh. Apocalypse/saviour baby plots are not my fave. Raped by aliens is not good.
TRUEBLOOD’s final season kicks off in a couple weeks. Rumor mill says there will be a same sex hook-up (“from non-gay characters”) in ep2. Honestly, I can’t imagine this will be handled in a mature fashion most of the gay characters have been bogged down with tropes on tropes. Every one is still hoping that Alexander Skarsgard is involved. Honestly, I think his little brother is cuter. Which is why I’m counting the days til July 11th when Bill Skarsgard returns as Roman on Netflix original series “Hemlock Grove”.
Official season 2 trailer, anyone?
Absolutely no one anywhere can wait for the new open world Zelda. But we have to. 2015.
