There are certain television shows and movies that can take a relatively unknown star and turn them into a global superstar almost over night, while there are also some very talented families in the acting industry, with parents, children and siblings all following one another into the acting game, making a huge success of themselves in Hollywood.
Which brings us to the actor Alexander Skarsgard, who rose to global superstardom with his role in the hit vampire television series True Blood, while he is also the son of Stellan Skarsgard and sees his brothers also working in Hollywood. We have been a big fan of Alexander for a while now and we are looking forward to getting to see him on the big screen in the upcoming new movie Hold the Dark.
As well as having a strong cast for the new movie, Hold the Dark also has a very interesting storyline, with the movie being described as, "After the deaths of three children suspected to be by wolves, writer Russell Core is hired by the parents of a missing six-year-old boy to track down and locate their son in the Alaskan wilderness."
As we mentioned, Alexander Skarsgard is not the only big name star to appear in Hold the Dark, with the rest of the cast including such names as Riley Keough, Jeffrey Wright, James Badge Dale, and Jonathan Whitesell, among others. Hold the Dark has been directed by Jeremy Saulnier, from the screenplay which Macon Blair developed from the William Giraldi book, with the movie due for release on June 1.
