Alexander Skarsgard To Bang His Sexy Chest As Tarzan?!

| Filed under: Film FlickersSamuel L. JacksonKellan LutzAlexander Skarsgård


Oh please please PLEASE!

Although nothing is confirmed, we hear sexy True Blood vamper Alexander Skarsgard is the lead choice to play the title role in David Yates' Tarzan!

Now, don't confuse ASkars' Tarzan with Kellan Lutz's upcoming portrayal of Tarzan

Apparently the films will be VERY different beasts (in more ways than one!), with Kellan's being more of a light, comedic romp, and Alex's being more of an artistic take on the classic Tarzan tale.

Samuel L. Jackson is ALSO rumored to star in Yates' Tarzan, which maps the character of John Clayton III's devolution into the vine-swinging dude.

The flick will hopefully start filming Summer 2013.

Anything with Alexander S. in it sounds wildly sexy to us! We may just go wail from the treetops in SO much excitement!

    LOL!!!! No way…this is terrible casting. No way I would go and see this movie with Alex as Tarzan. Unless there was a supporting role of another actor I would want to see.

    Sounds great, will so want to see this with Alex bringing his own brand of class to the film. It is perfect casting. Cannot wait for the film.

    since when does Tarzan look like seedy sleep deprived crack addict? Sorry dont get his sex appeal at all. That said, i dont know why any actor would play Tarzan. Its a shitty role for an actor.

    We want to see Alexander as Christian Grey NOT Tarzan!!
    I want to see him in romantic roles not comidies!!

    The only actor that made a career out of playing Tarzan was Johnny Weissmuller!
    I agree with you about the role being a bad one!
    What happened to Ron Ely? He played the role & then went on to host
    the Miss Americia Pagent for a few years???

    And who are you calling a "Crack addicted sleep deprived addict"
    Kellan or Alexander?~Cause Alexander is NOT a addict or sleep deprived!!!
    And if you want to see Alexander's sex appeal just watch HBO's TrueBlood!!!
