Just like there are now three Hemsworth brothers to lust after, we decided this week to pay homage to another set of hot siblings. As it turns out, there’s another Skarsgård brother that gets our pulses racing. Shout out to Alexander’s baby brother, Bill, that star of the new Netflix series, “Hemlock Grove.” Alex, welcome Bill to the Hump Day Hottie Club.
Check out this dreamy photo of Bill, and keep reading for more details about him!
Vital stats: This 22-year-old grew up in Sweden (obvi), and if you think that Bill is a bland a name for this Swede, think again. His very Scandinavian full name is Bill Istvan Gunther Skarsgard. Um, hot. And, in addition to following in the footsteps of his brother, Alexander, his dad is also a big-time actor. You might know him as Stellan Skarsgård.
Where you might have already seen him: Up until now, Bill’s acting credits have been based in Sweden, and included roles in “Arn: The Kingdom at the End of the Road” (and later the TV series), “Simon & The Oaks,” as well as the flick “Simple Simon,” which earned him a Guldbagge Award. Though, American cinephiles might remember him from his part in the most recent adaptation of “Anna Karenina.”
Why you should take notice of him now: This week he kicks off his role in the very sexy (like really, really NSFW) supernatural themed Netflix series “Hemlock Grove.” And judging from the trailer, some really weird stuff is going to go down, as Bill’s character, Roman, befriends a werewolf and investigates a young woman’s murder. You know, just a typical weeknight. Oh, and, if he’s looking for someone to help him out with all the investigating and whatnot, we might be able to squeeze him into our schedules.
Until next week, when we choose another Hump Day Hottie, you can salute Bill by gawking at the photo above!
