While he won't be having sex on screen, veteran actor Stellan Skarsgård says he will be going full frontal for Lars von Trier's next project "The Nymphomaniac".

Talking about how von Trier got him on the project, Skarsgard tells The Playlist that "He [von Trier] called me a couple of months ago and said 'Stellan, I just want to book you for next summer, so don’t take anything else. I’m going to make a porno film and I want you to play the male lead.' 'Yes of course, Lars,' I said. 'But you will not get to fuck in the film.' I said okay, he said, 'But you will show your dick at the end, and it will be very floppy.' 'Okay Lars, I will be there, if that’s what you’re doing.' "

Charlotte Gainsbourg is already cast in the film which will be available in both an edited version for mainstream release and an unedited version for limited and disc release. Skarsgård starred with his son Alexander Skarsgård ("True Blood") in von Trier's most recent effort "Melancholia".
