Big Little Lies fans might have something new to be excited about in season 2.
Alexander Skarsgård made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night and may have teased that he would be returning to the HBO hit show for the second season.
“I was on set, yes. I can’t disclose what I did on set,” Skarsgård teased on the show. “Maybe I was acting. I might have been just moral support. I might have just made coffee for the ladies. I might have helped Meryl Streep with her acting…Not help, but just give her little pointers, fine-tune it a bit.”
Whether or not Skarsgård does appear on the upcoming season of Big Little Lies, fans will get the added benefit of a new character with Streep joining the cast as Mary Louise Wright, Perry's (Skarsgård's) mother.
The 42-year-old actor, who starred in The Giver alongside Streep, could have very well been stopping by to say hi to his old coworker. “I did a movie years ago, and one of the incentives was to work with Meryl Streep. It was a scene with Meryl Streep, and I was very, very excited about it,” Skarsgård recalled. “I didn’t sleep the night before. I was really excited about it. I showed up on set, and I was like, ‘All right, where is Mrs. Streep?’”
But something tells us that he showed up on set for more than just a visit. It would be interesting to see how Skarsgård's Perry would fit into a second season. Perry, who was abusive toward his wife, Celeste (Nicole Kidman), in season 1 and who raped Jane (Shailene Woodley), which we find out at the end of the inaugural season, ultimately fell to his death after Bonnie (Zoë Kravitz) shoved him down a set of concrete stairs.
If Skarsgård were to return, it would likely be in a series of flashbacks.
