    No, it sounds like he's portraying him as a Viking Prince full of a lust for life.(like Henry in The Tudors) Alex can pull this off without it seeming even remotely Vinnie Chase-like, and I have faith in the writers. The Viking flashback we've already had was wonderful and meaty, and extremely illustrative of Eric, who he is, and where his priorities are.

    Faith in the writers? After the debacle that was the second half of S2? Errrr, okay then.

    Sasha, I hope you're right - and I could definitely see an angle like that work even though I'm not too optimistic at the moment. I do like many of the changes AB has made .. and some of them I really hate. I'm glad we're getting more Viking-flashbacks though. I just really hope we'll get to see Aude at some time.

    I think Alan Ball heard me screaming blood murder...

    PLEASE NOTE REVISED ROLE BELOW:

    [ASTRID] In her mid to late 30's, warm, a Swedish Viking queen with a new baby, she is Eric's (Alex Sarsgård) mother, seen in a flashback to 900 A.D...ACTRESS MUST SPEAK SOME SWEDISH (47)

    Will Alex Skarsgård's Real Dad Play Eric's Viking Dad on True Blood?

    Today 3:12 PM PST by Jennifer Godwin

    We asked reps for papa Skarsgård if he would be playing Ulfrick on True Blood, and they said, "He will not."

    OK, so, bah humbug to that, but if Señor Skarsgård isn't down for the role, who else would work? The official character description reads thusly: "In his 40s to 50s, warm, a battle-scarred Swedish Viking king, [Ulfrick] is Eric's father, seen in a flashback to 900 A.D. Though they have a good relationship, there is some tension between father and son, because Ulfrick wants Eric to learn responsibility and behave in a manner befitting royalty...GUEST STAR (47) ACTOR MUST SPEAK FLUENT SWEDISH."

    In lieu of Stellan, fans have suggested casting Max von Sydow, Bill Nighy or Viggo Mortensen. Von Sydow and Mortensen both actually speak Swedish, and Nighy has vampire-genre experience from his work on the Underworld franchise. We like any one of those choices, but who appeals to you?

    Bill Nighy would be good! He nearly has as much glare coming off his head as these two....

    Those three would all be great, especially Max or Viggo. But man - it would have been plain awesome with Stellan on the show
