Could Alexander Skarsgard be Tarzan?

By November 14, 2012

Follow me on:

Alexander SkarsgardVariety says director David Yates (the Harry Potter films Order of the Phoenix, Half-Blood Prince, and Deathly Hallows Parts 1 & 2) wants True Blood's sexiest vampire, Alexander Skarsgard, to swing from the trees - hopefully wearing very little clothing - in Tarzan. Yates didn't say the "very little clothing" part...that was my contribution. Nothing's official yet and nobody's commenting on the potential casting of Skarsgard as Tarzan in the Warner Bros Pictures production that's aiming for a summer 2013 start of production.

Other actors whose names have been put out there as potential Tarzan's include Sons of Anarchy's Charlie Hunnam (also the star of Guillermo del Toro's upcoming sci-fi action film, Pacific Rim) and Tom Hardy, most recently seen in the indie drama Lawless and wearing a mask covering his face as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises.

Skarsgard had a small role in this summer's Battleship and will next be seen on the big screen in The East with one of my favorite actresses, Brit Marling.
