Maybe I’m crazy, but there’s a big difference between a Southern accent and a Swedish accent, right? Like, my ears wouldn’t be confusing the two, would they? Last night I was watching the above interview with “True Blood” hottie Alexander Skarsgard on “Extra” and was seriously perplexed. Wait, isn’t he from Norway or Sweden or something? Why does he sound like his name should be Billy Bob? Sure enough, Skarsgard was born and raised in Stockholm, but I can’t detect even the slightest bit of Swedish Chef in that sexy voice of his. Skarsgard is filming a movie called “Straw Dogs” and the story takes place in the Deep South. Is he “method” and constantly in character? In which case, can I please interview him while he’s filming “True Blood” and he can practice sucking on my neck?
