Back in 2017 — three years ago, if you believe math; thirty years ago if you believe FEELINGS — Alexander Skarsgard went full Ron Howard for a role in The Hummingbird Project.

WELL, dear reviewer, A.Skars may be guilty of Bland in the First Degree in this movie, but he is NOT guilty of prosthetics. The man ran headlong into Prince Edward cosplay.

Now he’s hurtling toward Chris Evans, and as The Youngs said at one point, I’m not mad at it.
