I’ve just spent the afternoon doing college work.
A health and safety module and a talk with statistics!
My head is swimming.

Time to relax a bit.
Do a bit of trolling for info and photos of Joel.
Hey! it’s good practice for trolling the internet for information in general so it will help with my college work.

That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.

Anyway, I’ve just found a quote from Joel that goes as follows….

“My best friend, Gustaf Skarsgard had just gotten into acting school. He was talking so passionately about it, and I was completely sucked in. Our colleges are free, but the acting program is the second most expensive education, second only to fighter pilot school. They only accept 10 people a year out of about 1,500 people and I got in!

I hadn’t cried since I was 12, and it wasn’t until I started acting again that I started to find those emotions. Now I’m a total crybaby.”

Joel Kinnaman, Hollywood Reporter, June 21 2012

All I can say is that was money well spent!!
He certainly knows how to cry on cue and has put it to great use in Snabba Cash, I Skuggan Av Varmen and Johan Falk: Kodnam Lisa in particular.
He knows how to use his puppy dog eyes and posture to look totally vulnerable and when he turns the water works on, he melts your heart and has you… hook, line and sinker!!

I suppose a huge thank you has to go to Gustav Skarsgard.

If he hadn’t inspired Joel to go to college in the first place we wouldn’t have had the pleasure of his work so far.

Right, time for a warm bath and a book.
Still catching up on The Outlander series.
