Secret Identity: Captain America, Conan And More Casting We Want To See In 2010

31 December 2009 6:01 AM, PST | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

It's out with the old and in with the new as 2009 transitions into 2010 in just a few short hours. There's no question that it's been a fantastic, crazy and occasionally tumultuous year for comic book fans thanks to film releases like "Watchmen" and compelling news stories regarding "Iron Man 2," "Green Lantern" and others.

But all of that is in the past now. It's time to look forward at what we can expect in the new year. There are still many announced comic book movies and television shows that lack official casting, but with some of these projects heading into production in 2010, it's only a matter of time before the secrets are revealed.

While we all have our own favorite franchises and characters, these are the five heroes and villains I'm dying to see cast in 2010.

Captain America

Robert Downey Jr. is Tony Stark and Chris Hemsworth is Thor, but »

Robert Pattinson Tops Alexander Skarsgård in Poll

25 December 2009 8:20 AM, PST | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson still rules the vampire world, topping True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgård and “New Moon’s Taylor Lautner by a wide margin in an Improper poll. Skarsgård has been developing a dedicated following just like Rob ever since being cast in 2008 as the sexy vampire Eric Northman in the hit HBO series “True Blood.” But TheImproper wanted to know: Who’s hotter? The poll also included “New Moon’s” Taylor because of the outstanding job he did in the “Twilight” sequel and the rise of “Team Jacob,” the legion of fans who support the hot young actor. Rob also starred in New Moon with Kristen Stewart, Ashley Greene, Dakota Fanning, Michael Sheen and Kellan Lutz. Alexander stars in True Blood with Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and Sam Trammell. »

Alexander Skarsgård Talks Straw Dogs and Thor

22 December 2009 5:37 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

This post is probably going to be a bit like kicking a beehive. Every time we run an article about the upcoming Thor movie, starring Chris Hemsworth as the Norse god of Marevel comics and legend, there is a flurry of comments reiterating the fan opinion that Alexander Skarsgård should have been the one cast. And, in a small interview, he says he very nearly was, and that he auditioned quite a few times. Before saying that he auditioned for Thor "many, many times," the actor told Black Book (via The Playlist): I know that they considered me for the part and I got, from what I understand, very close to getting it and that’s amazing because I know how many guys they look at for a part like that. I was very humbled by that. It was a great experience and you know you win some you lose some, »

‘True Blood’ Adds New Blood For Season 3

3 December 2009 9:55 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Shock Til You Drop may have been glamouring us, but it looks like HBO’s True Blood has added Marshall Allman , Theo Alexander and Grant Bowler into the fray for the coming third season of the deep-south vampire drama.

Allen, who played Lj Burrows in Prison Break and popped up in Mad Men and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia will appear as Sam Merlotte’s long-lost younger brother, Tommy Mickens.  Is shapeshifting genetic?  I guess we’ll find out. 

 

Alexander, of CSI: NY and Chuck fame, will be playing Talbot, the beautiful, blood-sucking boyfriend of the vampire king of Mississippi (which must be a more impressive title than it sounds).  How did kingdoms and wards get divided up by these folks anyway?  Bowler, who we know from Ugly Betty and Lost, will play a biker gang-leading werewolf (obviously) named Coot.

Of course a lot of these roles were referenced »

24 November 2009 11:02 AM, PST | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

True Blood star Alexander Skarsgård graces the December cover of Sweden's Café magazine. The hunky 6'4" Skarsgård is smiling seductively with the caption In Hollywood with Sweden's hottest actor under the photo. Alexander, 33, recently revealed that his bad-boy vampire alter ego, Eric Northman, will have lots of sex--with both men and women--this season. Skarsgård, who has been voted the Sexiest Man in Sweden for the past five years, will begin filming the third season of True Blood in L.A. in December. While Alexander has brushed off rumors that he's dating his Straw Dogs co-star, Kate Bosworth, the duo was photographed together Nov. 23 in L.A., where they attended a screening of Fantastic Mr. Fox. Skarsgård and Kate were also spotted holding hands in NYC last week at the GQ Men of the Year Awards. »

Alexander Skarsgård can't wait to start shooting the next season of True Blood. "It's been like five or six months since I've seen most of them," Skarsgård, who plays vampire Eric on the hit HBO series, told me at the GQ Men of the Year party. "I miss the whole cast and crew. It's sort of my family away from my family in Sweden." In the meantime, there is that other bloodsucking megahit phenomenon sweeping the universe to keep everyone company. So, will Mr. Skarsgård be checking out New Moon? "When does it open?" he said, smiling. "I'll get my sleeping bag and wait in line." (P.S.: Maybe Kate Bosworth will join him. The maybe-couple were »

What Do You Call a Really Horny Vampire?

16 November 2009 11:40 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Let's face it: Vampires, in general, are a pretty salacious bunch. But we've basically got two kinds lurking around, right? There's the more noble and chiseled variety, as in Robert Pattinson's Edward Cullen. But on the other fang, you've got flesh-chomping sex-crawlers Nikki Reed and Alexander Skarsgård. On-camera, too, for that matter! Which begs, just begs, the need for a new addition to our fab Celeb Addictionary! Certainly for castmembers of the myriad Vamp shows and movies who can't necessarily be trusted with humans' throats once the day's shooting is done. Want to hear what we think they should be called? Vamp-Tramp, of course! Exact »

Tuesday Top Ten: Bite Me!

27 October 2009 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It's Halloween Week! Though a horror movie wuss I be there's one movie monster who I'll always give it up for, the vampire. Herewith: the film & television vampires who I would find most difficult to resist. (I've restricted myself to the past 30 years because there are too many I haven't seen from earlier... like those Hammer Horror films Matt was just talking 'bout). Should these 10 suckers ever come knocking, I shan't be wearing a cross, turtleneck or smelling of garlic.

I've already discussed Seline in Underworld and that hot Mexican in From Dusk til Dawn so I'm skipping them here.

10 Dracula (Gerard Butler) in Dracula 2000 (2000)

There are abundant lists of "best/sexiest vamps" on the net, but most of them go off in directions I can't support [cough Twilight... must everything be about page views? They twinkle. In the sun. Ugh]. But The Daily Beast makes a good point in favor of Gerard Butler: Ceiling Sex.
