In a perfect intersection of OP's interests, Emmy Award-Winner and one of the only good things to come out of Sweden Alexander Skarsgard has been tapped to play a fictional-but-handsome Canadian Prime Minister (OP note: art imitating life) in the upcoming Lionsgate "black comedy", Flarsky.
- Charlize Theron is starring as the Canadian Secretary of State (OP note: which is no longer a real job in Canada) and Seth Rogen is the title character, "a print journalist who pursues Theron." (OP note: urgh of course).
- Flarsky is set for release in February 2019.
Skarsgard has also been cast in the BBC One mini-series The Little Drummer Girl, set to come out next year.
- Based on the John Le Carré's novel, the mini-series will be directed by Park Chan-wook and will also star Florence Pugh (Lady Macbeth).
- Pugh plays a young actress holidaying in Greece in the 1970s, who then finds herself involved with an intriguing stranger. This stranger, played by Skarsgard, is revealed to be an Israeli intelligence officer.
Skarsgard will have regular hair for both of these roles.
Are you the pride of Sweden, ontd?
