Alexander Skarsgard Shows Off His Swedish Accent, Talks Family And 'Straw Dogs' With Jimmy Fallon (VIDEO)

"True Blood" star Alexander Skarsgard stopped by "Late NIght With Jimmy Fallon," last night to promote his new film, "Straw Dogs," with Kate Bosworth and James Marsden as a Hollywood couple who move to the deep South.

Skarsgard plays Bothworth's jealous ex-boyfriend, and while he masters the Southern accent in the film, the the 35-year-old born in Stockholm, gave Fallon a taste of his native, Swedish accent -- much to Fallon's amusement.

While on the subject of Sweden, Skarsgard told Fallon about his family back home, namely his 82-year-old wheelchair-bound grandmother who rules the family "with an iron fist."

"My whole extended family basically lives within five blocks of each other. And everyday at five o'clock we roll Grandma out to the square," he said.

Who ever is around will do their errands, he explained and Grandma will sit and drink what most would consider to be a lot of booze. "And she wants more, but you can't have it all," he says.
