Okay, so it's actually just Bill Skarsgård, and it looks from the first trailer for Barbarian that he might not be the actual danger in the house...

Georgina Campbell stars as Tess, a young woman traveling to Detroit for a job interview books a rental home. But when she arrives late at night, she discovers that the house is double booked, and a strange man (Skarsgård's Keith) is already staying there.
