Time to take a trip in the wayback machine! With True Blood season 5 almost upon us (June 10, y'all!), we decided to dig into the archives from when the series first premiered.
And in our hunt, we found this gem of a photo from True Blood's Los Angeles premiere September 4, 2008.
Even in just four years, Alexander Skarsgard has matured into a hot, suave leading man. But back in 2008, well, he was still hot, but a little rougher around the edges.
He rocked some facial hair back then, and kept his hair in that dirty rock star look.
What do you think: Do you prefer old-school Alex or new-school Alex?
Either way, we're with that lady on the poster behind him: yum!
