Peter Sarsgaard & Alex Skarsgard are not brothers

Red alert! It turns out actors Peter Sarsgaard and Alex Skarsgard are not brothers, despite their surnames sharing a few letters. Well damn! I've been assuming they were related for the past year. Peter Sarsgaard (above) is an American character-actor who played a devious Southern lawyer opposite Kate Hudson in The Skeleton Key (2005). He recently starred as Carey Mulligan's charming, but shady British lover in An Education (2009).

Alex "No Relation to Peter" Skarsgard is a Swedish actor who is currently on the vampire cable show True Blood. I'm glad that's all cleared up.
