Stellan Skarsgård is no stranger to Hollywood tentpoles thanks to his role as Erik Selvig in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the actor gets a far meatier and more domineering studio role in Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming “Dune” adaptation.

As the actor told The Daily Beast, he spent about 30 percent of time making “Dune” in the makeup trailer.
