True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard is a passionate guy, but he isn’t one to spill about his personal life. However, when he has an opinion about something, it doesn’t take a lot to coax it out of him!

Recently, A. Skars shared some of his favorite things with Refinery29 — including what he has blasting on his iPod.

"I listen to a lot of Swedish music actually. There are so many phenomenal bands and artists coming out of Sweden now,” he spilled. “I think the readers should check out this artist, Anna von Hausswolf. She’s on iTunes over here in the States. Really, really amazing.”

But he also has some guilty pleasures, too. Although they aren’t bubblegum pop, we were still surprised at what he’s into.

“In terms of guilty pleasures, I’d go with Europe. You know? The metal band from the ‘80s. That’s something I crank up,” Alex admitted. “I grew up listening to that, so I love listening to those songs. It brings me back."

Unfortunately, when he talked about his TV love, it wasn’t as shocking. There’s no love for any form of Real Housewives from A. Skars.

“I watch Meet The Press and The Colbert Report. Those are probably the only two shows I watch,” he said. “I’m a huge fan of Stephen Colbert, I think he’s a genius. And the news, I watch the news."

Do we sense a Newsroom crossover ahead? We’re sure Eric Northman would give Will McAvoy a piece of his mind …

Were you surprised at Alexander’s taste in music? Weigh in below!
