Stellan Skarsgard fine with Thor nudity

Oct 23 2013, 4:32am CDT | by Bang Movies

Stellan Skarsgard had no problem going nude in 'Thor: The Dark World'.

The 62-year-old actor has revealed he was comfortable baring all in the sequel to the hit 2011 film, in which he reprises his role as scientist Erik Selvig.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the film's world premiere in London's Leicester Square on Tuesday (22.10.13), he said: ''If you've seen what I've done before you'll know that I'm naked in half of my films so it wasn't a big deal. And I was born naked, also! I got a question through my agent asking would I mind [getting naked] and I didn't mind.''

Meanwhile, franchise newcomer Christopher Eccleston, who plays villain Malekith, says he didn't feel pressure following in the footsteps of 'Thor' and 'The Avengers' nemesis Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston.

He explained: ''It wasn't daunting. It was a pleasure. This film has got probably three villains - myself, Tom and Adewale [Akinnuoye-Agbaje], who plays Algrim/Kurse. My threat is very separate. Tom is the threat within the family and I'm the threat from outside.''

While the movie embraces humour, Eccleston's character remains stoic throughout, but the actor admits he was often tempted to crack a smile.

He added: ''It all ended up on the cutting room. They said, 'Continue to be mean, Eccleston. We want a naughty elf.' ''

'Thor' leading man Chris Hemsworth led the red carpet arrivals at the film's premiere and he was joined by co-stars Natalie Portman, Idris Elba, Kat Dennings and director Alan Taylor.

New Trailer For In Order Of Disappearance

Aug 20 2014 5:21am CDT | Source: Empire Online

Stellan Skarsgård has a revenge missionNordic noirs tend to end up in dark terrain littered with dead dogs, battered protagonists and humour so black you could tar a road with it. The latest addition to the canon is In Order Of Disappearance, a thriller that’s billed as a rollicking, gory and funny delve into Norway’s dark underbelly that brings to mind a certain Coen brothers film. It has a new trailer you can feast your eyes on be ...

Stellan Skarsgard Returns For ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’

Aug 17 2014 1:12am CDT | Source: screen rant

In Phase 1 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the origin story for Thor helped setup the villain and main plot of The Avengers. A key to the pseudo-science involved in making the otherworldly stuff in Thor and The Avengers work was the character of Dr. Erik Selvig played by Stellan Skarsgård, a mentor of Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster. Selvig returned again in an even wackier, comedic exposition-focused role for Thor: The Dark World for even more questionable science-y plot nece ...
