We have to wait another two months to see what Alexander Skarsgard as Eric Northman
isn’t wearing is up to on “True Blood” season 6, and yes, waiting sucks, but thankfully the swoon-worthy Swede has been keeping busy during his Bon Temps hiatus: Skarsgard is starring in two upcoming films, “The East” (co-starring Ellen Can’t-Possibly-Be-Dating-Alexander-Skarsgard Page) and “Disconnected,” co-starring Jason Bateman (phew!). The films are similar in that they both present a dystopian sort of view of modern society gone horribly wrong: “Disconnected” is described as the story of “interconnected characters who are affected — and in some cases destroyed — by the Internet and other forms of modern communication”; “The East” ”follows the exploits of an anarchist collective of the same name which … attacks global conglomerates who have committed a range of environmental, medical, and social injustices.”
Honestly, both movies look pretty damn good, and I’m not just saying that because of ASkars. But since we’re talking about him anyway, let’s see which of his characters — rebel leader Benji in “The East” or philandering former Marine Derek Hull in “Disconnected” – has more in common with the real Alexander Skarsgard?

Here is a special Christmas greeting from Alexander Skarsgård, featuring Mr. Skarsgård and his furry friend, who we’re tentatively calling Captain Mittens. El Capitan and Skarsgård are wishing friends and fans a “Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year” in Swedish. And while there are rumors that this is entirely Photoshopped, I’m choosing to believe that this is really just how Skarsgård likes to commemorate the season.
Fun fact: I once had an ex-boyfriend who declared himself to be straight as an arrow “except for that blonde guy from ‘True Blood’ — I would totally have sex with him any way he wanted.” After watching this spot for Calvin Klein’s Encounter cologne starring Alexander Skarsgard and Lara Stone, I finally understand. (Also, is it just me or is “Encounter” kind of a bad name for a cologne? It makes me think of Craigslist “Casual Encounters,” which probably is not the brand association CK wants.)
Everyone enjoys a good photo op with a celeb, even our animal friends. This mini baby lamb looks like it’s in heaven cradled in Alexander Skarsgard’s arms. But wouldn’t you be too? Dammit. I think Bullet magazine is trying to kill us with squishes. Job well done. Click through to see more celebrities posing with animals. [Dlisted]
It seems “True Blood”’s Alexander Skarsgård is quite the busy man, dating not one, but THREE different women. Back in April, while promoting his new movie, “Battleship,” he was seen getting busy with his busy costar Rihanna.
The duo ended up at a Geisha Bathhouse and, says a witness, “They were drinking, and before you knew it they were in a corner getting hot and heavy.” Obviously, they are not seeing each other exclusively – at least not if Ashton Kutcher has anything to say about it.
Skarsgård has also recently been linked to Charlize Theron – but all this is while he is also dating Italian skydiver, Roberta Mancino. Read more…
This just might be my favorite Entertainment Weekly cover ever. Since Sunday night brings the “True Blood” season four premiere, EW has issued three covers featuring Anna Paquin posing “American Gothic”-style alongside Alexander Skarsgard, Joe Maganeillo, and her real-life husband Stephen Moyer. My fave is this Alexander one, because both of them have such perfect expressions. My least favorite has to be the Joe version, which you can check out after the jump. In real life, Alcide is the character I lust after the most—just not in those overalls. But nevermind what I think, pick your favorite after the jump. Keep reading »
It doesn’t get much hotter than this! “True Blood” star Alexander Skarsgard got all dressed up for Vogue magazine and looked sexier than ever! The actor also revealed some tidbits about the upcoming highly anticipated season of his hit HBO show, including what becomes of his character Eric Northman.
Alexander admits that at first, he wasn’t sure he wanted to take on the “True Blood” role of the sexy vampire. “I was nervous about doing a TV series, because I wasn’t sure I wanted to play the same character over and over,” he told Vogue.
However, he quickly changed his mind, adding, “But this season is really fun. Eric gets amnesia and becomes like a big child.” Read more… Keep reading »
While I think we’d all love to be Bill’s bitch, there’s a perfectly good explanation for these tees.“True Blood” studs Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgard just competed against each other in the Battle Of The Fangs, a fundraiser for Gulf Aid and SOS Children’s Villages. Together they raised $70K, yay! But Team Bill edged out Team Eric by a mere $892. So, Alex’s T-shirt got made because he wound up on the bottom, er, losing the bet. FYI: Moyer’s T says “I Like My Bitches Blonde.” Ha! Anyway, boys, I have an idea. Next time, how about you go shirtless for charity? [L.A. Rag Mag] Keep reading »
“We showed up and we shot very PG-13 with our clothes on for basically the whole day, like six or seven hours. Then towards the end the photographer said, ‘I have this, these shots are beautiful and the magazine is going to be happy with them but I’d like to try something if you guys are game.’ He explained it and it was just one of those things in the moment where we all looked at each other, we’d spent all day with the photographer, we felt comfortable with him, we knew that he was great and the atmosphere was right and we were like, ‘F*** it, let’s do it.’ No one thought that the magazine would go for it.”
