Bill Skarsgard Is Extremely Hot, and We Are Not Clowning Around

September 13, 2017

Whether or not your nightmares have been invaded by the new remake of Stephen King’s It, you’ve probably heard about the clown at the center of all the horrifying madness: Pennywise. But before you run away from this post in fear, I am here to tell you that you can take a deep breath, because Bill Skarsgard, the guy behind all that terrifying makeup, is actually super hot in real life.

The actor is the furthest thing from his onscreen character with hauntingly beautiful eyes and perfect lips. It also doesn’t hurt that he comes from a long line of famous and handsome men (his dad is actor Stellan Skarsgard and his brother is actor Alexander Skarsgard). Bill is slowly but surely blowing up on the Hollywood scene, and we have a feeling he’s going to shift from our nightmares to our daydreams in no time.

Meet Bill Skarsgard, the Guy About to Terrorize You as Pennywise

Bill Skarsgard is the hot man behind the horrifying face of clown makeup in the remake of Stephen King’s It, and we don’t even feel weird about being attracted to him. Sure, he’s playing one of the most iconic supernatural villains of all time, but Bill IRL seems kind of great. While you may have noticed him as Matthew in the Divergent film Allegiant, he’s popped up all over the place. With the release of It finally upon us, get the scoop on what you need to know about the up-and-coming actor.

  1. He’s Swedish, in case you couldn’t tell. Bill was born in Vällingby, a suburban area outside of Stockholm, Sweden.
  2. He comes from a famous brood. Those icy looks run in the family; Bill is the younger brother of Alexander Skarsgard, famous for True Blood and Big Little Lies. Their father is Stellan Skarsgard, a longtime actor who you may recognize from Good Will Hunting, Thor, and the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Alexander was initially worried about Bill coming to LA in pursuit of being an actor, but Bill ended up booking a major role in a month and a half.
  3. In fact, there are more Skarsgards than you think. Bill has five full siblings (Alexander, Gustaf, Sam, Eija, and Valter) and two half-brothers, Ossian and Kolbjörn. That’s a lot of Christmas gifts to buy.
  4. He’s been in creepy stuff before. Though his performance as Pennywise will undoubtedly haunt us forever and ever, It isn’t Bill’s first foray into horror. He starred on all three seasons of Netflix’s Hemlock Grove as Roman Godfrey. He knows his way around the supernatural. Then again, that show never had a killer clown.

  1. His breakthrough role was playing a man with Asperger’s syndrome. Bill starred in the 2010 Swedish film Simple Simon as a young man with the developmental disorder. He was nominated for a Guldbagge Award, which is basically the equivalent of a Swedish Oscar.
  2. Bill had big dreams of traveling the Trans-Siberian railroad. In an interview with his father, Stellan inquired about why Bill chose to act after graduation rather than stick with his initial plan of traveling. “The main reason why I didn’t really pursue acting early was because I thought people would say, ‘Yeah OK, here comes another one, he’s been fed on a silver plate of course he’s an actor,'” Bill said. “You know as well as anybody else you don’t just ‘get to’ play parts, you need to prove yourself.”
  3. He got his driver’s license at 26 years old. It wasn’t until Bill had been in Canada and America for a few years that he thought to get a license.

Alexander Skarsgard Clowns Around With His Brother at the It Premiere

September 6, 2017

Bill Skarsgard may be playing the terrifying Pennywise in the remake of Stephen King’s It, but it was his older brother who was the ultimate clown at the film’s LA premiere. On Tuesday, Bill was joined by his famous siblings Alexander and Gustaf as he hit the red carpet at the TCL Chinese Theatre. Aside from giving us major Hemsworth brothers vibes with their group photo, Alexander also had a little fun with the cameras as he photobombed his brother by pretending to get starstruck behind him. Needless to say, we can’t get enough of their brotherly bond.

Bill Skarsgård says he made child extras cry on the set of ‘It’

June 6, 2017

Pennywise actor Bill Skarsgård revealed the following in an interview.

'It's a really weird thing to go, "If I succeed at doing what I'm trying to do with this character, I'll traumatize kids." On set, I wasn't very friendly or goofy. I tried to maintain some sort of weirdness about the character, at least when I was in all the makeup. At one point, they set up this entire scene, and these kids come in, and none of them have seen me yet. Their parents have brought them in, these little extras, right? And then I come out as Pennywise, and these kids—young, normal kids—I saw the reaction that they had. Some of them were really intrigued, but some couldn't look at me, and some were shaking. This one kid started crying. He started to cry and the director yelled, "Action!" And when they say "action," I am completely in character. So some of these kids got terrified and started to cry in the middle of the take, and then I realized, "Holy shit. What am I doing? What is this? This is horrible…" But then we cut, and obviously I was all, "Hey, I'm sorry. This is pretend."'

Alexander Skarsgard Steams Up The Air While Wandering LA

Holy Moly.

The Smokin ‘Swedish god Alexander Skarsgard was seen leaving a Hollywood hotspot, and we believe that he has waaaaaay too many clothes for our liking.

Our

seXXXbomb favorite was in Los Angeles a lot lately … and we love it.

We wanted him to reconsider the whole “getting dressed in the morning -” thing and show us a little more skin are True Blood alter ego Eric Northman.

Hey, we can dream, right?

If ASkars walking barefoot over perhaps the United States should follow the whole thing public masturbating … the example of Sweden

LOLz!
