Alexander Skarsgard knocks our socks off on True Blood, but this Viking is blowing up on the silver screen faster than you can say “leather man-vest."
Alexander has two feature films coming out this fall — Melancholia and Straw Dogs — that have received advanced rave reviews, and he’s graced the cover of almost every hunky man magazine this year.
“I’m a narcissist so of course I love it,” Alex reveals to New York Mag. “But it also gets to the point where … I mean, it’s all good, but it’s so surreal. It almost feels like you’re watching yourself, like you’re in a movie. You’re just like, 'Is this really happening?'"

The Alexander Skarsgard Movie starring Alexander Skarsgard? We’d tune in!
According to Alex, all his characters are connected to him on a personal level. “All the characters I play are all inside of me in a way, and they’re all different, the darkness, the lightness, whatever that is.” Considering that his character in Straw Dogs is a crazy murderer, let’s hope Alex connects with his nice side.
“I’m not interested in parts where they are looking for a good-looking guy,” ASkars says. “I want to be a weird little sidekick in a crazy comedy and then play like a dark drama or a thriller.”
Earth to Alex, you already played a weird little sidekick: Meekus, the really, really, ridiculously good-looking male model in Zoolander!
