Alexander Skarsgård Hilariously Trolled His Brother At The 'It' Premiere
The Skarsgård family are one of those families who sort of make you sick. They’re like your new neighbours that move in next door; the husband and wife are very successful in their own fields and the children – Emily and little Jasper – are both prodigies who can play the piano and have scholarships at the best school in the county. On weekends they all go out cycling in matching helmets.
Petty much everyone in the Skarsgård clan is a success story and whilst that’s good for them, it makes us look bad. My brother and I are just bumming around really, and I think our parents hate us.
Anyway, Bill Skarsgård played Pennywise in the new It film and he’s supposed to have done very well indeed. You can’t really tell it’s him underneath all of the makeup best rest assured, it is.
The film took $13.5 million (£10 million) when it opened on Thursday, making it the highest grossing R-rated film opening ever, so it’s very likely we’re going to be seeing a lot more of Bill Skarsgård in the coming years.
Until then though, we’ve got his brothers, and they’re equally brilliant. In fact a couple of them were brought along to the It premiere and they wasted no time in making sure they could bully their younger brother.

I say bullying, more just embarrass him.
You’ll know Alexander Skarsgård from the likes of The Legend of Tarzan and True Blood whilst the other brother (there’s actually loads of them), Gustav, is best known for his role in Vikings.
Gustav was better behaved, which was nice for Bill, but Alexander really went overboard with the reaction shots.
I mean, it’s almost definitely jealousy. My brother pulls shit like that in public all of the time and I’m pretty certain it’s because he wants to be me. Why wouldn’t he?
Their dad, Stellan Skarsgård, wasn’t to be seen, but it’s easy to see where they got their talents from when he’s been in the likes of Good Will Hunting, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Avengers.
Bill Skarsgård for an Oscar in 2020. I’m calling that one early. Hold me to it.
