The words is from the director that helped him get the part.Susanna White is actually meeting Nöjesbladet to promote her latest movie ”Nanny McPhee…”. But the director can not stop raving about Alexander Skarsgård. White has the sole responsibility for getting the Swede the part that resulted in his breakthrough in Hollywood.
– I told them I would quit as director if he didn’t get the part in ”Generation kill”, replied Susanna White.
Script writer David Simon och TV company HBO allegedly was against the idea to cast the Swede as the all American hero in the TV series about the war in Iraq. But the director didn’t want to hear anything about it.
