Alexander Skarsgard Interview – War on Everyone – ” I’ve been going after a comedy for a long time but I’d get laughed out of the room”
Turns out, we’ve all been saying Alexander Skarsgard’s name wrong. At least, anyone not from Scandinavia. “I don’t really care, nobody says it right but we’ve got different sounds to our letters than you can’t understand unless you’re from there. The little circle over the second ‘a’, it doesn’t sound like an ‘a’ at all. It’s an ‘oo-ah’ sound. So it’s Skars-goo-aa-rd.”
Q: Apart from this being an awesome comedy, what attracted you to War on Everyone?
Especially after spending nine months in the jungle, I needed some comedy. I’ve been going after a comedy for a long long time but I’d get laughed out of the room. ‘you’re not a comedy guy, ‘ and it’s like, ‘Yes, I am, I was in fucknig Zoolander, hello!’
