Alexander Skarsgard Could Be Your New Tarzan

Alexander Skarsgard Could Be Your New Tarzan

The requirements for playing Tarzan aren’t especially lengthy, but they are stringent. You must have excellently defined muscles. You must look half decent in a long, stringy wig.

And you must be able to bellow the iconic Tarzan scream, preferably while swinging from vines and also wearing a loincloth.

But Tarzan is being assembled as a giant tentpole, so you can guarantee they’ll sidestep as much controversy as possible in order to appeal to the widest audience imaginable.

I’m still skeptical that the Tarzan story can be sold to a modern audience, but at the very least, Samuel L. Jackson is worth watching in most anything.
