Why so blue Alexander? The hunky Alexander Skarsgard covers the June 2011 issue of Interview magazine via New York Daily News. The 34-year-old actor sat down with Aracde Fire’s Win Butler for a chat. Here are a few of the highlights:

Wanting diversity in his roles: “I do get a lot of scripts sent to me where they basically want me to play Eric from True Blood, but just a different name in a different movie. That’s not interesting to me. I don’t want to play a character that I’ve played for four years on a television show, change the name, and make him a zombie instead of a vampire.”

How he connects with the characters he plays: “In a weird way, I always play myself, just through different mirrors. If I read a script and I don’t connect with a character, if I can’t find the character on the page in my soul, then I’m not going to be able to do a good job.”

What types of roles he wants to play: “There’s got to be something new, something fresh. I want to almost be intimidated when I embark on a journey. I wouldn’t say there’s a fear, but I do get slightly nervous in the beginning when that happens, and I like that feeling. That triggers me a lot.”

    “In a weird way, I always play myself, just through different mirrors. If I read a script and I don’t connect with a character, if I can’t find the character on the page in my soul, then I’m not going to be able to do a good job.”

    WHY DOES HE KEEP SAYING THAT??? He plays a violent RAPIST in ‘Straw Dogs’. And yet he keeps making these statements about how he sees himself in every single character he plays.

    If this is true then he desperately needs some psychological help.
