  • -My first guest is an Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actor

  • who you can see in the big new film, "Godzilla vs. Kong,"

  • which is in theaters and on HBO Max on March 31st.

  • Please welcome Alexander Skarsgard!

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • Ah, that's what -- that's what I'm talking about.

  • Look at you, stud.

  • Thank you so much for being here.

  • It's been a while since last you were on the show,

  • and I was reading that you've been really dedicating

  • the past few months to drawing and artwork.

  • -Sounds kind of pretentious, but in the beginning

  • of the lockdown a year ago, I wanted to stay creative

  • and not just stare into the wall.

  • -Yeah. -So I started drawing.

  • And I hadn't done much of that before.

  • But I got really into it. Went deep down the rabbit hole.

  • In the beginning, it was mostly like croquis stuff

  • and rough drawings, but then --

  • -Croquis? Is that, like, a style of drawing?

  • -Yeah. Yeah, and it evolved into

  • more portrait mode and more detailed drawing.

  • I got into the -- kind of the geometry behind it

  • to get the proportions right, and I've probably spent

  • a couple of thousand hours now just drawing.

  • -Wow. -It's like Malcolm Gladwell's

  • theory that -- Well, I don't know if --

  • 10,000 hours you spend on something.

  • -Yeah, you become a master.

  • -I haven't reached that level quite, but it's been,

  • you know, a good part of the past year

  • just drawing portraits

  • and still life and basically everything.

  • -Do you have any drawings nearby that you could maybe show us?

  • I'd love to see a couple.

  • -Yeah. Uh...

  • [ Chuckles ]

  • It's a bit embarrassing.

  • I haven't shown a lot of people this

  • 'cause I've been so isolated, but, um, yeah.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • So... this is...my mom's dog.

  • [ Laughter and applause ]

  • -Okay. Wow.

  • -Yeah, that's my mom's dog. -Amazing.

  • -And when I drew it, it was actually just standing.

  • But I wanted it to be more kinetic and have more life.

  • [ Laughter ] -Yeah, of course!

  • So you added -- [ Laughter ]

  • 'Cause the dog -- So, the dog was standing

  • when you saw it, but yet you wanted to add

  • a little movement to it. Yeah.

  • -Creative freedom. Creative freedom.

  • -No, no, absolutely. That's what I meant to say.

  • -Yeah. Congratulations. Any others?

  • -Well, yeah. Part of the training was also

  • kind of to draw reproductions of the old classics.

  • And so I have...

  • Michelangelo. -Oh, of course.

  • Okay, well... [ Laughter ]

  • Okay. That's right. [ Laughter ]

  • No, you're right. That angle is correct.

  • -And I -- basically, when I drew this,

  • I don't even remember doing it.

  • Like, I put pen to paper, and then I kind of zoned out,

  • and then -- -At what point do you zone out?

  • -Well, basically when I put pen to paper on this one,

  • I don't even remember drawing it.

  • And then I looked up, and I was like, "Wow."

  • -Wow. [ Laughter ]

  • That's exactly what I would do.

  • -I wasn't even religious before I started doing this,

  • But then I was like, I saw God.

  • -[ Laughing ] Oh, my gosh.

  • Yeah, of course. -And I don't even know

  • if I did it or, like, the hand of God --

  • it was drawn by the hand of God. -Honestly, Alexander...

  • -And then I took a stab at the most classic of them all,

  • the most classic masterpiece, "Mona Lisa."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -Yeah, that's -- That's actually not bad.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • -I -- -It's not --

  • I'm not quite happy with the enigmatic smile.

  • I'm working on that.

  • -Yeah, no, I think you nailed it perfect.

  • I have a lot of -- I have a lot of questions.

  • I look at that, and I have a lot of questions,

  • just like the real work of art.

  • -Do you really? -Yep.

  • -Thanks, man!

  • -Yeah, congratulations. Yeah.

  • -Thank you, man.

  • -Buddy, I always love having you on the show.

  • Congrats on "Godzilla vs. Kong."

  • 'Cause people are saying right now it's on track

  • to become the biggest box office since the pandemic started.

  • And I'm excited about it.

  • Can you set it up a little bit?

  • Like, why is Godzilla fighting King Kong?

  • -Um... Well, in the last

  • Godzilla movie, that one is called

  • "Godzilla: King of the Monsters,"

  • and the outcome is kind of in the title.

  • By the end of the movie, he is the king.

  • And he's the apex predator on the planet, and everyone agrees.

  • And then, in this movie, Kong basically shows up.

  • 'Cause he wasn't in "King of Monsters,"

  • and Kong is like,

  • "Hold my banana while I spank this lizard."

  • -Yep. Yep, yep, yep.

  • "Hold my banana while I spank this lizard," yeah.

  • -That's not metaphorically --

  • -That was the original tagline of the movie.

  • But they didn't use it.

  • But without giving away spoilers,

  • Tariq and I have a bet.

  • And Godzilla versus Kong, you have to make a bet.

  • Do you have a preference? Who are you betting on,

  • and did you have a preference, like, growing up?

  • -Wait. So, Jimmy, who did you bet on?

  • -I bet on Kong.

  • King Kong, by the way.

  • -So, not me, basically.

  • -Well, this is before I talked to you.

  • -Right.

  • It is Godzilla versus Kong versus Alexander Skarsgard.

  • -Yes! And that I would take the bet.

  • -The great titan.

  • -I would take Alexander Skarsgard

  • all the time. Every single time.

  • That's the king. [ Cheers and applause ]

  • You're the king of all man!

  • I want to show everyone a clip.

  • Here's King Kong fighting off Godzilla

  • in "Godzilla vs. Kong." Take a look at this.
