Alex Skarsgard promotes ‘Battleship’ at WonderCon: so hot or so over it?

Do you know how many talented people are in Battleship? Not that many. Okay, Liam Neeson is in it, for one. And Taylor Ktisch, although… I’m still struggling to refer to him as one of the more talented actors of his generation. Let’s see where he is by the end of the year. And of course, there’s Rihanna and Brooklyn Decker. It doesn’t seem like “the girls” do much but stand around, sometimes squinting, sometimes looking up into the sky with a look of sexy bewilderment. And to round out the cast, there’s Alexander Skarsgard. So, the cast is… odd. An odd mix of talents. Anyway, Skarsgard and Brooklyn Decker (wearing a “Brooklyn” t-shirt – ugh) were at WonderCon to promote Battleship over the weekend. Funny story: some photo agencies labeled these photos “Battlefield press conference”. SHIP!!

So… Alex looks nice. He’s so friggin’ tall, it’s crazy. Most actors’ feet don’t hit the ground in these weird WonderCon chairs, but look at Alex’s crazy legs. Sigh… I’d be up for some Viking Hotness, but I don’t think he would be into me. He likes blondes. Look at how he’s sizing up Brooklyn. Damn it, ASkars! That girl is married. But he doesn’t care.

Last week, they finally released a trailer for Battleship that actually shows some of the “plot” (insomuch as these films have a “plot”). You know what I’m tired of? I’m tired of these “an entire city is decimated in a matter of seconds” movies. It bugs me because all they ever show is the CGI architecture being destroyed. The human toll isn’t as interesting/watchable as “look at this building being destroyed.” Alex is barely in this trailer too:

Meh. I’d rather watch Prometheus.

    Love him!! Considering he worked late the night before the con, he still looks yummy!

  2. Devon says:

    Despite him looking tired (he was on a night shoot the night before… I need more of a life if I know this), he looks so hot. The photo of him in that chair? *drools*

  3. Tiffany27 says:

    Meh. I prefer Joel Kinnaman.

  4. Domestic diva says:

    I’m black I don’t even really like the white boys like that but everytime I see this guy my first thought is “he could get it” lol he is beyond sexy to me mmmm

  5. mia girl says:

    Yum, yum, yum

  6. Kaye says:

    It’s odd – individually, the features of his face are not attractive. But put together, he is smokin’.

    Plus he always acts like he’s happy to be doing what he’s doing. He seems to appreciate the fans and doesn’t mind doing publicity.

  7. RayA says:

    Oh hell yes he could still get it.

  8. The Original Mia says:

    The chair photo is my favorite. Those legs. They just don’t freaking stop. Dude is hot.

  9. grabbyhands says:

    I would still totally hit it, but I admit-listening to him promote a movie like this kills my ladyboner a little. I hope this was just an easy paycheck for him and that he’ll pick better projects in the future. Granted, I could be totally wrong and maybe it’s just the trailer that looks stupid, but I feel like this will be a flop. I mean, Brooklyn Decker and Rihanna? Come on.

  10. rufustfirefly says:

    Good grief that man is fine! The mile-long legs certainly don’t hurt things, IMO. But that’s just me. I will definitely be in the theaters for this one.

    I didn’t get the flirty vibe from him at all toward Brooklyn. She was talking about Berg trying to get her cry snot bubbles and he grinned. Okay, ew.

    I don’t think he discriminates when it comes to hair color for potential “GF” material. His last few girlfriends from Sweden were brunettes.

  11. LadyBird83 says:

    I would ride that Swedish stallion any day. Seriously.

  12. Eve says:

    I never found him hot to begin with…every time I look at him I think “weasel face”.

    • I Choose Me says:

      Me neither. Great bod no question but the only time I thought him really attractive was the first season of True Blood when his character had longer hair. The long hair suited him better imo. It distracted from the under eye bags and slightly bulbous nose. But then I lurve the Gosling chin and all and Fassbender and all of his six-hundred teeth so I guess to each her own. :D

  13. Wendi says:

    Well look at him, all “Mr. Slouchy and I’m still hot”. Somebody definitely won in the genetic lottery and he seems like a nice guy to boot.

    Completely doable.

  14. tiredofrumers says:

    skarsgaard who?

    battleship post needs more riggins.

  15. Leikyn says:

    He’s a fine looking man. I’d like to see him do more things. “Transformers Go To The Beach” is all I get out of Battleship. It looks like Liam Neeson dies early. I won’t see this simply because of the Rhianna factor. She’s a dumbass.

  16. Bite me says:

    I finally watched Melancholia last night and it was a very beautiful film , Alex surprised me

  17. UKHels says:

    I’ll never be over it – he’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen

  18. banga says:

    so according to the interwebs, Brooklyn Decker is 6 feet. Look at her, in heels, next to the viking. No way is she 6 feet.

    He is ridc hot. I don’t normally like blonds, he looks exhausted here, yet still, I’d climb him like a tree.

    • Wendi says:

      Wiki says she’s 5’9″. I’d say she’s wearing 3 inch heels so she may have fudged her height by an inch or so max.

  19. NancyMan says:

    I wish he’d wrap those long legs around me and lock them in back for a day or two….

    Wait- was that my inner voice?

  20. Chatcat says:

    He has never done anything at all for me so nothing to get over…

  21. almond says:

    To me his face has always been meh, but below the neck, I would climb him day and night. I get such a lady boner for incredibly tall dudes.

  22. JM says:

    Every time I try and quit this gorgeous piece of Swedish sausage, he shows up to some function looking positively droolworthy! The long legs ending in Converse makes me want to do very bad things!

  23. Bossy says:

    I used to be a fan of this guy but I’m not anymore. So I guess I’m in the “so over it” category.

  24. Gwen says:

    Still hot. Still perfectly lovable *sigh*

  25. reddmasters says:

    Askars…still hot!

  26. Cerulean says:

    Still sizzling…love him. Don’t usually like blondes but him I likey.

  27. Grace says:

    What’s with all that … still ? (Like you all try and apologise to the few that was never really there, in Alexander Land) Anyway no saying … still … here, Alexander is reaching more people (woman!?) in ways no one else does, reaching them at all (the unreachable), that’s what I get from reading statements all over, people are into him like it’s a revelation, I think it Really is! He has that something, more than something and you just don’t get over him like that, if at all. Okay, 5 persons have doubts, but are ‘still’ into him, 3 person don’t get what it is about him, and feel obligated to tell all about it, there lack of taste ;) Well congratulations, guess you’re lucky or blind, I wish as much, it’s actually annoying me (an unattainable), that he got to me. But I’m a avid, vivid and crazy fan now and no going back! I don’t care much for ‘boy toy movies’, but since Alexander is my ‘boy/man toy’ I make an exception! Oh, and he is a great actor ;)

    • rufustfirefly says:

      ^This! @Grace You’re preaching to the choir, sister! I dont’ do celebrity crushes…with one exception. That incredibly lush length of man up there. I tried to give him up for lent when my obsession started reaching scary levels, but it’s just not working. He’s got me fried, dyed and parted on the side. Throw in his talent as an actor and he’s so ridiculously hot he’s off the charts.

  28. ZenB!tch says:

    No thanks – I don’t get him but whatev he’s OK but Rihanna IS offensive so I’m skipping this one.

  29. Camille (The original) says:

    The movie looks damn awful, but because it has Liam and Alex in it I’ll probably end up renting it/seeing it if its on TV.

  30. Jenna says:

    Definitely HAWT! Though every time I think I’m over him he pulls me back in! Damn sexy Swede.

  31. Bobby sue says:

    My boyfriend looks surprisingly similar to Skarsgard in the face (but he’s only 6’1); it freaks me out sometimes when I catch a random photo of AS so obviously I am quite attracted to the type but in these photos, I feel meh. Runs and hides.

    • MQ says:

      LOL, You need to post a picture of your boyfriend; but yes it will be kind of weird to see him and be very similar to your partner and I have to agree in some photo he docent look his best could be his tired or just worn out.

      Oh well…

  32. dovesgate says:

    Mmmm mmmm mmmm.

    Man, I can’t wait for True Blood.

  33. sup says:

    idk if it’s the klingon sixhead or the prominent witch-chin but he never did it for me. i am guessing (wild guess here) that women like him because he plays a “funny badboy who is really good deep within” in the show because some women really seem to dig that kinda role, otherwise i have no idea why anybody would think this guy is handsome at all.

    • MQ says:

      I do think you are spot on since is the character he portrays. The first time I saw him was in Generation Kill but he does a vampire in a show. Sorry but I’m not into vampires at all so I will not know.

      I do guess that is why people are attracted to actors and actresses since they have an image they have built in what they see in the movies. I will not like to meet people that a like in how they do there craft since it could burst my bubble of the image I have portrait for them… but still will have to meet Jeff Buckley or David Bowie ;)
