Now that we’ve established that True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard and The Killing’s Joel Kinnaman were separated at birth, it’s time to start some sibling rivalry.
The two Swedish babes are both the faces of fall ad campaigns — A. Skars for Calvin Klein fragrance Encounter (pictured right) and J. Kinn for H&M’s menswear (pictured left) — and are looking mighty fine in the recently-released photos.
Both will be featured in print and television advertising, although Joel’s commercials — shot by famed video director Jonas Akerlund — aren't set to premiere until Oct. 5 on H&M.com.
For Alexander, he was drawn to the campaign through the interesting concept.
“Their idea for their concept was very intriguing to me — it was almost like a short film, and very film noir. It felt interesting to me,” he told WWD. “I wanted to be involved with something where you tell a story — even though it’s a short story.”
For Joel, it was more about the clothes than the concept.
“H&M makes it easy for a guy to look great every single day and create a personal style,” Joel said in a press release. “Their men’s collection always gives me a choice of how I want to dress, whether it be sharp in a suit and polo-neck, or more relaxed in jeans and a tweed jacket.”
Whatever the reason for their involvement, we’re just happy to look at two gorgeous men! But on that note, it’s time to make a tough call: Who looks sexier in their ad campaign? A. Skars or J. Kinn? Weigh in below!
