Alexander Skarsgard works a gray clingy t-shirt

This post comes with good news. We’re doing Hot Guy Friday this week, we’ve been preparing it since Wednesday, and it will be chock full of hot dudes. I know we’ve skipped the last couple of weeks, which were harried due to the Royal Wedding, The Met Gala, and Kaiser coming down with a cold that conveniently scored her some couch syrup with codeine. So HGF will be back this week and will then go on an every-other-week schedule to preserve our sanity. It’s a labor of love, but it does take a lot of work.

The last we saw of True Blood hottie Alex Skarsgard, he was wearing the hell out of black shirt that clung to his rock hard abs. It’s about two weeks later and we’re treated to these photos of him in a gray t-shirt that shows that much more of his amazing physique. There’s not a lot of news to accompany these photos, apart from the fact that he’s been cast in another movie. Yay!

Alexander Skarsgard has joined Julianne Moore and Steve Coogan in What Maisie Knew, an adaptation of the Henry James novel set in contemporary New York from co-directors Scott McGehee and David Siegel.

Billed as a comedy drama, the movie will be produced and bankrolled by banner Red Crown Prods.
U.S. buyers are being tempted during the Marche du Film by WME’s Graham Taylor and Mark Ankner and international sales by Fortissimo Films.

Written by Nancy Doyne and Carroll Cartwright, the story centers on Maisie, a six-year-old girl enmeshed in the bitter divorce of her mother, a rock and roll icon, and her father, a charming but distracted art dealer.

Moore stars as Maisie’s mother, Coogan as her father and Skarsgard stars as Moore’s new husband.

The movie is to roll August in NYC and is produced by Bill Teitler, Chuck Weinstock and Daniela Taplin Lundberg.

Is it premature to get excited about potential Skarsgard photos on set? It’s in New York, which means the paparazzi will be hanging around. Hell at that point I won’t care too much, because True Blood will be back! I feel like we’ve been waiting forever. It premieres on June 26, which is just six weeks away. Six very long weeks if you stare too long as these photos. Please let there be plenty of shirtless scenes with Eric, mostly involving sex.

    Such a shame that he won’t be able to go to Cannes (for “Melancholia”) and wear a tux and look all pretty. :’(

  2. Christine says:

    I’m in the waiting room of a Children’s hospital with my 4 year old and 5 month old and this post made me smile. Thank you CB!

  3. Eve says:

    Does nothing for me.

  4. bigchili says:

    I just love this man. Excited for TB4. It was my favorite book in the series so hopefully it will do it justice. If so we will get lots of ASkars nakedness & sex.

    Nice to hear about another movie role finally.

  5. dovesgate says:

    I just finished rereading TB4 and *fan girl squeal* LOL.

    *** Spoiler Alert ***

    I can’t wait to see what they do with this book. Ohhh how I hope they stick to the whole Eric has amnesia thing.

  6. sapphire says:

    The best news we could have is he dumped KBos.I know it’s all a matter of personal opinion, but he is SO hot.

  7. Praise St. Angie! says:

    so…uh…anyone on here working on this set who can give us a schedule of his scenes? Time and place?

    I’m not that far from the city…!

    good lord this man is HOT!

  8. Emily says:

    Mmm, hopefully he and Moore get a few sex scenes in that movie!

  9. Dangerfox says:

    Yum yum yum look at those arms! Just imagine him wrapping them around you, all safe and comfy.

    Although every so often there’s photos of him, and his nose is just so large and weird looking. Sometimes I can’t get over that!

  10. Sloane Wyatt says:


    Good luck today.

  11. Devon says:

    Dovesgate, they are going with the Eric has amnesia plot. There have been lots of interviews and even a couple promos where it’s either been talked about or shown! I can’t wait!! Dead to the World is my favorite book!

  12. foozy says:

    yum! this guy can do no wrong..

  13. Gwen says:

    Christine, I hope everything went well.

    Mmmm.. he sure is a fine man :D Bad taste in women though. Not that it makes him any less fine or nice to look at.

  14. KLO says:

    He always looks dirty to me

  15. dahlia1947 says:

    He’s nice to look at but I like when he has bangs. He looks so much better with them.

  16. Maya says:

    Dayum! He’s looking specially hot in that gray shirt.

  17. anon33 says:

    I’m with Eve and KLO. Does nothing for me whatsoever and always looks greasy and shiny. His neck is too long and his face/head isn’t large or wide enough, or something, to support that penis-neck.
    He does have nice arms, but….that’s all I got lol

  18. lucy2 says:

    The Bosworth has damaged his pretty in my eyes, so I’m kind of over him – at least until TB starts again.
    Happy to hear they’re following book #4 – should be very interesting.

  19. beth says:

    i dont just want pictues of all them hot dude. i want to be sandwiched between them. them without their shirts on. every single one of em.

  20. Canuck says:

    In the third t-shirt shot, he looks like he’s thinking “Don’t you people have a life?” while he’s looking at the pap. I wonder what the guy was saying to him?

  21. Beth says:

    It’s heartbreaking how much I love this man.

  22. JM says:

    @ Lucy2: I’m in the same boat. A year+ of Beige association has completely sucked the hot out of him. Hopefully, TB S4 won’t suck as bad as last year and I’ll remember why I found him so irresistable to begin with.

  23. Amanda G says:

    Pure hotness, but I wish he’d stop styling his hair that way.

  24. vanessa says:

    he has a great smile, love his teeth lol

  25. RHONYC says:

    a bust of his chest should be in the MET. :-)

  26. Camille says:

    <3 him. Sigh, I really miss TB :( .

  27. Canuck says:

    Can we hope that if you mentioned HGF in a Skarsgard post, he’s going to be included this week?

  28. Jaded says:

    I don’t get why people think he’s hot – now that black guy with him in the 5th and last pic – he’s hot! (and his arms are better than Alexander’s)

  29. TXCinderella says:

    Mmmmmm…he is SO yummy!

  30. The H says:

    I’m not feeling it but thanks nonetheless!

  31. KV says:

    Yay! Thanks for the Alex pics! He’s like this adorkable stud… This odd combination that just works for me.. Love him! (Although I think he has awful taste in women- what does he see in Bosworth?! Yuck!)
    Really looking forward to season 4 of TB and lots of naked Eric Northman! Glad to hear about another project lined up for him as well.
    Thanks again for pics of this beautiful man.. :)

  32. hairball says:

    I didn’t get it either for him until I saw him as Eric.

  33. hairball says:

    The first like six episodes of season one, Stephen Moyer was SO hot, I mean, OMG hot.

    But then he looked SO different. I can’t understand it. Last season he did look pretty hot though.

    I am so glad though that they toned down the caked on pasty grey make-up.

  34. Devon says:

    hairball, yes! Moyer was smoking at first in TB but now he looks skeevy and gross. Have you seen the new promo? Ugh.

    Skarsgard looks dirty, homeless and hot all at the same time and I find it such a turn on. On anyone else it’d look weak ass but on him (or any other hot Swede) it works. Don’t believe the hot Swede thing? Google Alex Edler. So fine…and he lives down the street from me! LOL

  35. Hazel says:

    In my eyes, perfection definitely comes in tall and lanky packages.

    He’s perfect in such a pure, neutral, Swedish, gray t-shirt way.

  36. wifeyskarsgard says:

    This guy is the sex god! I cant wait for the new season of True Blood, 6 weeks is way too long after i waited this much. *Hump*
