Bill Skarsgård
Yep, the new Skarsgård on the block. He's now in Hemlock Grove....

He is not as tall as his brother, but on the other hand he is considerably more James Dean.

He is featured in the April issue of Interview:

"I literally don't have a home," says Bill Skarsgård, when asked where he's based. The 22-year-old Stockholm-born actor is currently holed up in Los Angeles taking meetings when we speak on the phone, but he's poised to soon take up residence in the pop-culture firmament. Skarsgård is one of the stars of Hemlock Grove, the new Netflix drama series about a Pennsylvania town beset upon by vengeful, shadowy creatures. In the show, he plays the troubled son of a wealthy family who strikes up a friendship with a werewolf, based on their mutual appreciation of the dark side. "[My character is] like the prince of this town, and he's self-destructive because he hates himself for it," Skarsgård explains. "He struggles not to act on his urges." Skarsgård is a scion himself, a member of the Swedish Skarsgård acting dynasty. His father is Stellan (Breaking the Waves [1996], among many others) and his brother is Alexander (the prolifically nude vampire of HBO's True Blood). Bill got his start at the age of 9, when Alexander suggested that he play his little brother in the Swedish thriller White Water Fury (2000), which led to steady and varied work. "I played a guy with Asperger's syndrome; then I played this insecure 17-year-old in the '70s, then a young man who came of age in the '40s during WWII," he says. "That's how I want my career to progress—to be versatile is what I'm striving for." Creatures of the night are, of course, very hot at the moment, but Skarsgård says Hemlock is a different beast. "My agent pitched it as a vampire-werewolf thing, and I said, ‘Oh, come on, I don't want to do that.' Then I got the script and couldn't stop reading it." The show is no True Blood. "It's nasty and disturbing more than sexy," he says of the series, which is directed by slasher king Eli Roth. "It's about this town and these people. Saying that it's about werewolves would be like calling The Walking Dead a zombie show." Although Skarsgård doesn't seek advice from his father—"I want my performances to be mine," he says—he has been glad to have Alexander's counsel about L.A. "He was worried about me coming here and thinking I'd get jobs. He said, ‘Don't get your hopes up.' Then I'm here for a month and a half and I got this amazing part, which is kind of ridiculous. I'm super-****ing-lucky," he says. "Now I just have to get another job." And maybe an apartment.

I watched all the episodes of Hemlock Grove, which was not terrific although oddly addicting. Bill's got some hurdles to climb as an actor, but at least he's mighty fine to look at. I curious to see some of his swedish films like Behind Blue Skies and Simple Simon because he's probably more at ease in his native language.

Simple Simon is an amazing little film, and I believe it's still up in parts on YT w/ subs. Defo check it out if interested in him, he does a great job with that character!

He's Buscemi around the eyes, Kate Moennig everywhere else. Haven't finished HG yet but I'm liking it so far. Definitely want to check out his other film.

^Gustaf is a fine actor....that is for sure. I must say Stellan has some great genes. And....lots of sons. Seven so far if I understand things right.

Looks wise Bill is my fave...

I love Bill's brooding look. All the Skarsgaard are great actors. I really want to check out more of Bill's work besides Hemlock Grove, which is so cheesy.
