Round 4
When gym proprietor Justin Fortune saw Skarsgård lying on the canvas, he said, “Don’t get used to that fuckin’ position, all right?” The actor lifted his head and laughed. He has been down before. Roughly 10 years ago, he found himself auditioning for stupid parts. Then he saw something he wanted—the role of U.S. Marine Sgt. Brad “Iceman” Colbert in the HBO miniseries “Generation Kill,” which was co-produced by “The Wire”’s David Simon and Ed Burns. “I got lucky,” Skarsgård says. “I got the part.”
