True Blood, Season 3 – Official Premiere

I don’t usually post about these red carpet preening parades, and I’m not going to spam you with pics of every no-name bit player and his dog arriving.

Let’s just admit it.

THIS is what we all came for, right?

Sunday Skars – Redux

Some new eye candy is doing the rounds today, and it set me to pondering just how long it’s been since we indulged in some blatant worship of the pretty that is Alexander Skarsgard.

Okay, so it’s only been a week. But that’s still six days too long. And technically, we were worshipping his ass.

These images come from Skarsgard News – if you aren’t a fan on Facebook you need to become one. They are promising us two previously unseen photos a day until True Blood returns on June 13.

While we’re on the subject of a certain tall blond hunk of Swede, the girls at The Sookieverse have just posted an advance review of Straw Dogs. For those of you who may have been living under a rock for the last year, this is the feature film Alex made with Kate Bosworth. (Thanks Nicole!)

Monday Skars

Yeah yeah, I know I was incredibly slack yesterday and failed to deliver Sunday Skars on time.

I had a hangover. And it was not pretty, not at all.

Moving on, today we have some Metropia publicity shots taken with Juliette Lewis.

I love Juliette. I love ASkars. Put them both together and well…I JUST LOVE.

She is soooo tiny next to him. It’s cute.

Midweek Skarsporn

Some scans of the VMAN magazine shoot have just appeared – here is a tease. The interview and the full set of pics are over at The Nest.

Note to magazine stylists: This man is 33 years old. Does he LOOK LIKE RPATZ TO YOU??

It seems to be all about the hair, this week.

Ridiculous hair aside, check the thumb/hand/bitey lip porn down there.

Remember to breathe.

Eric’s hair and my fragile grip on reality – Pt 1

I freely admit I’m like a dog with a bone on this subject – but we are going there, yet again.

Yes, it’s Eric’s hair.

Eric’s season three hair – a subject which has been sending us (ok ME) into random conniptions since February – was once again a hot topic in the comments of yesterday’s Webisode Promo post.

So for the sake of my sanity we are going to get to the bottom of this hair issue, once and for all. But to do that, we need to do some snooping.

And I’m on it.

27 June 2009

True Blood is just about to wrap up season 2 filming. Alexander attends the Bruno premiere in LA with 100% Verified Viking Hair.

Early August 2009

Filming for Straw Dogs begins. Set photos show his highlights cut out and his hair back to his natural dirty blond. It’s cut quite short for his role – including through the front.

Early October 2009

Filming ends for Straw Dogs, according to the Vault and various other sources. As of October 11th, the film is listed on IMDb as being in “Post Production”.

November, 2009

Alex goes to Stockholm to film extra scenes for the indie production, Puss. He wore a wig for these additional scenes, therefore nothing was done to his real hair.

In the wig:

Returning from Stockholm in mid-November after Puss shoot – hair is still very short, and dirty blonde:

January 5, 2010

Production has just started on season 3 of True Blood, and the paps catch Skars alone at the movies. Wait! There is definitely much more length than there was just six weeks before. And still dirty blond.

Now since Alex’s hair was longish in early January, the Eric minisode we saw a glimpse of yesterday was filmed in early January. Why? Because the hair in the screencap below is NOT the same hair we have been seeing in other season 3 promos (pics further down for comparison purposes!), but it is very similar in length and colour to the pic above. And it is parted and slicked back like season 2, though it’s a little shorter. It definitely has not been attacked with the auburn rinse yet, which makes sense if this scene is meant to occur between season 2 and 3:

[I realise my obsessive, stalkerish behaviour is freaking some of you right out at this point…but bear with me. I’m going somewhere with this, really I AM!]

January 18, 2010

Moving just over a week forward from the sad, lonely guy at the movies alone pic on Jan 5. Remember True Blood has started filming – and Alex shows up at the Golden Globes with his hair like THIS. I thought it was odd, but it was just this image that looked really obviously dyed, so I blamed the lighting.

February 17 and 18, 2010

These images come out, a day apart. We realise something is definitely up, and I let it rip…you can read it here (beware, much swearing). If you can’t see that hair has dye in it of an auburn persuasion, you need to adjust your monitor or your glasses. Because that is NOT his natural colour. And it is not the lighting either. He’s been under lights plenty of times in the last few years and his hair has never appeared that colour.

14 & 21 March, 2010

True Blood promos are released, and for the first time we see Season 3 Eric.

WHAT THE FUCK HAVE THEY DONE?

And I rant again.

31 March, 2010

Alan Ball feeds this gem to Ausiello when asked about the obvious change to Eric’s hair colour:

“Alexander made a movie during his hiatus and his hair was darker when he returned,” explains Ball with a laugh. “It wasn’t a choice [we made].”

REALLY?

Straw Dogs finished filming in October. His hair was NOT dyed for his part in that film – in the set pics above you can see it is his natural colour. Nor was it dyed for the Puss reshoot, in which he wore a wig. His hair was clearly still his natural colour and beginning to grow out lengthwise in early January as can be seen above. A deliberate grow out to film the Eric minisode – which has to fit into the end of season 2 timeline. By mid January, his hair has been cut shorter again and an auburn rinse put through it that clearly was not there even two weeks before – let alone MONTHS before when he was filming other projects. An auburn rinse and cut that conspicuously appeared right when True Blood began filming.

By mid January, Alex’s only filming commitment was True Blood – Puss and Straw Dogs were long since done.

And of course, none of the above even takes into account the fact that actors who are contracted to a television series have clauses restricting what they can do to their appearance. This is precisely so that they don’t return to the set after a hiatus looking like a FUCKING FRAT BOY WHO CAME OFF SECOND BEST IN A BRAWL WITH HIS MOTHER’S HAIR DYE.

The fact that Ball is feeding us a line – and he is feeding us a line, no doubt in my mind – is making me very suspicious of his intentions in season 3. If Ball is telling porkies, there has to be a reason. A reason he doesn’t want us to know about yet.

And don’t tell me that it’s for the Leif storyline, it just does not wash now. That doesn’t explain why his hair has been dark since they started filming episode one, and it doesn’t explain why it is still dark now, almost five months later. This is a season long change and our blond Viking is GONE.

I was going to finish this post with a rational discussion about why this assault on Eric’s hair is practically giving me a stroke, instead of just ranting about it. But it’s already too long.

I’ll save that for tomorrow. I need a shot of something alcoholic and a good lie down before I blog about this subject again.

Sunday Skars

Let’s just say you’re hanging out at some hip California music festival on the weekend, listening to some tunes with friends.

You’re lying on your blanky, enjoying the sunshine. All of a sudden, completely out of the blue….AKSARS CROTCH IS ALL UP IN YOUR FACE.

Yes, that is what happened to this lucky, lucky girl when she attempted a crotch grab. Well, she might have been trying to fix his shirt…but I doubt it because that is the last thing anyone with a pulse is doing while anywhere near the GP. Would you care about the shirt? NO.

Some bitches get all the luck.

Sunday Skars

It has been a week of Eric and Skars overload but I’ll tell you this…too much is NEVER enough.

There’s no connecting theme this week, unless random pretty is a theme!

Most of us saw this fine example of jaw dropping arm porn earlier in the week, but only in a thumbnail. Click the pic for the full effect. I do believe it’s time I changed my wallpaper…

Another shot that you’ve probably already seen, but in the magazine it appeared cropped above the waist. Probably to cut out those ugly pleated pants that are giving me horrible Eric wardrobe flashbacks. I love this image, it kind of doesn’t look like him at all though.

I found this on tumblr and I just thought it was cute.

Are you sure you don’t need any help with your little….*ahem* problem, there Skars? I’d be happy to lend you a hand. Really, it’s NO trouble at all…

I fucking LOVE this pic. These two = TOTAL BADASS.
And never mind the Black Tank of Doom and the See Through Tee…at THE SAME TIME!
I am seriously so happy the weather is warming up in the northern hemisphere. Since he loves to recycle his clothing for FIVE YEARS at a time, I’m hopeful that me and the tank and the tee will have at least three more blissful summers together. *sigh*

And finally, a gif from the LA Times interview a month or so back. The headthrow is so very effective with the manliner. LOL.

Happy Sunday!
