MojoCrush: Alexander Skarsgård is an extremely sexy man.

Over the holidays, the MojoGirls got stuck into True Blood. Deeply. And if their ranting is anything to go by, Alex Skarsgård is at least 93% of the reason why…

Alex Skarsgård being hot

Alex Skarsgård: how do you say, "Yes, please!" in Swedish?

True Blood: essentially, it’s you’re stock-standard, schmaltzy soap opera. Only with lots more nudity, violence and all manner of vampires, werewolves, witches and fairies (in all senses of the word) having rampant sex with each other. It’s a very good time. If addictive, semi-mindless television is your thing. And, to an extent, it is our thing. We’re fans.

But… If you’re a lady-human – or one of our beloved gay readers for that matter – True Blood‘s addictiveness (and subsequent soul-stealing potential) becomes far more dangerous. This is because the show contains an actor called Alexander Skarsgård. He’s Swedish. He’s charming. He’s blindingly handsome.

Why don’t you come and say hello? Over to you, MojoGirls…

Please bite our necks, Alex. Like, pretty please…

Just a little to your left, Alex. We're right here!

Oh, to be a white, cotton sheet...

Oh. Em. Gucci-wearing jee! This man is so damn delish! Not only is he gorgeous, famous and talented, but he’s also Swedish (what is it about Swedish men that just makes us melt every time?) and has extensive military training. Which might explain his perfect, built-but-not-too-big frame. And, he’s tall. But not, like, freakishly, Lurch-from-The-Adams-Family tall. * swoon! *

To put it bluntly, this man is as close to perfect as we’ve seen in a long time. Actually, ever, now that we think about it. If he’s not the hottest man alive, he’s right up their with our favourites like Ryan Reynolds, Bradley Cooper, James Franco, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender.

Alex Skarsgård - eyes of God

Caption? Seriously? Like, why?

In True Blood, Alex plays Eric Northman; a thousand-year-old vampire with Viking roots. He’s also the arch-nemesis of the lead character (hot, but not as hot) Bill Compton (played by Stephen Moyer.)

Some of our BFFs have argued with us that Bill is hotter. We’re like, “Whatever, girls!” Seriously, Moyer is a tasty chunk of guy-candy, we’ll hand it to him (like, anytime!) but he’s no Alex. No one is Alex. Heck, Alex is barely even Alex… that’s how super scumptious Alex actually is! the point, girls is that we’d totally have his babies. If vampires could have babies, that is…

Alex Skarsgård - cold blooded, but still hot as hell

It’s just that Bill Compton is too stiff (and not in a good way,) he talks funny and he kinda reminds us of our dad. Eric Northman all the way, baby! In any event, Anna Paquin (who plays the female lead, “Sookie Stackhouse,”) is a very lucky girl, getting nibbled by both of them constantly…

In real life, 35-year-old Skarsgård is a regular (if gorgeous) human from Sweden. His dad is famous actor Stellan Skarsgård (whom you might remember as the barnacle-covered, totally gross, dead pirate from Pirates of the Carribean.) Three of his six siblings (not counting his one half-brother) are also actors, but they haven’t made it in Hollywood yet, so we’re not sure whether sexiness runs in the family or if it’s just Alex we’d like to spend a thousand years getting frisky with…

Alex Skarsgård: all the total hotties in the house, put one hand behind your head!

As if he’s not just hot enough simply existing, he also served in the Swedish military, in an anti-sabotage/anti-terrorism team. Somebody, please genuine cialis pills get us a fire extinguisher! Like, how totally yum is that! This may explain why he looked so at home (and so damn fine) in his breakthrough Hollywood role, when he played Sergeant Brad “Iceman” Colbert in HBO’s hit miniseries, Generation Kill. You might also remember him as “Meekus” – one of Ben Stiller’s model friends – in Zoolander.

It doesn’t surprise us, then, that he’s been voted

“The Sexiest Man in Sweden.” Actually, he’s won that title five times. We don’t really follow Swedish hotness-politics, but we have to guess, based on this evidence, that the competition has only been running since 2006.

Gucci and Skarsgård: that's quite a combo right there!

Although, come to think of it, Scandinavia seems to mass-produce hotties. Even so, Alex is just special. A bit like being the shortest of the Seven Dwarfs. Or the dumbest contender in Miss Teen USA. Or the fastest cheetah in the game park… LOL!

And, as far as we know, he’s still single, although he seems to be very guarded about his private life. Which only makes us that much more into him!

Skarsgård plays the vampire Eric Northman to perfection! He’s a little bit evil, a little bit sweet and charming, a lot dangerous and entirely dee-lish! He can have his way with any of our veins he chooses, any day of the week! And if he makes us into a vampire in the process, we’re totally okay with that too! An eternity of snogging a hottie who doesn’t age! Yes, please!

Alex Skarsgård and Kate Bosworth

Kate Bosworth getting (very) lucky...

We love True Blood. We

think you should watch it. There’s other hot men in it, pretty (frequently naked) girls to keep the boys distracted, and after four seasons, we’re still dying to see more of it. If they ever get rid of Eric Northman, though, we’re totally done with it. Just sayin’…

So girls, what do you think? Hottest man in the entire underworld, or are we just being glamoured by his evil vampire powers? Or, are you more of a “Bill” kinda gal? Leave us a comment and let us know…

Share the mojo...
