The team has had plenty of time in Antarctica to acclimate. Early this week team guide Inge Solheim led members Mark Wise and Alexander Skarsgard on a 24km skiing outing. The guys ended up at an Indian research center where they were treated to a big traditional Indian meal.
"Alex Skarsgard eats twice as much as everyone else. He’s a monster!"
Where did the idea to cast Lindsay Lohan and Alexander Skarsgard as Kenny’s kids come from?
God, where did we get the Lindsay Lohan idea? I think we wanted to give people something to talk about, but it also fits. It’s Kenny’s idea. He’s writing this screenplay, so it would make sense that he would cast Lindsay Lohan. We just put ourselves in Kenny’s head and asked whom we thought he’d want to play his daughter. And for Alexander Skarsgard? Maybe he was like, “I love True Blood.”
How did you approach her? Was she a fan of the show?
(blah blah crap about Lindsay Lohan I don’t care….) Alexander, too. He really got into it. He had this whole idea where Toby loves his father unconditionally. So much. Like Kenny’s the best dad ever, and he’s the perfect son. I think he had a lot of fun with it. He totally got his role and didn’t try to ham it up. He knew if he played it legit that it would be funnier.
“I’m not interested in parts where they’re looking for a good-looking guy,” he says. “I want to be a weird little sidekick in a crazy comedy and then play like a dark drama or a thriller.”

Alex with some fans in Cape Town tonight
Here’s a picture of Alex in Cape Town yesterday, but it’s so small and useless I’m not sure it even counts.
Q: An interesting video for the track starring Alexander Skarsgard from True Blood, how did that come about?
A: We met Alexander when we were on tour with our last record and he came and introduced himself after the gig.
Q: He’s a groupie then?
A: Possibly the best groupie you can possibly have then! When we were performing, he was in the centre front row. This huge tall beautiful Swedish man, slam dancing at the front. It was quite hard to concentrate. So we ended up staying in contact and when it came to making the video the director said we should ask Alexander. And he agreed and was great, very committed to his work and it was great to work with him.
Someone please give this Johanna Schneller woman a Skarsgard-shaped vibrator or something good lord
”[Alexander is] as tall, slender and golden as a shaft of wheat in the sun. In repose, his face is a study of angularity, cheek and jawbones jutting away, highlighting his sensual lips and the textbook movie-star cleft in his chin.”
”[Bill has] a moue that makes his startling cheekbones even more startling. His big eyes are the colour of barely-blue denim, and his perfect skin is the white-blue of 1-per cent milk. “
