Kicking off his weekend a bit early, Alexander Skarsgard showed up a Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood last night (September 19).

The “True Blood” stud brought one of his buddies along for the outing and seemed a bit cranky about the shutterbugs waiting nearby as he hopped into his car.

Alexander told press that he’s looking forward to competing against Prince Harry in the Walking with the Wounded journey to the South Pole in November.

“I'm pretty stubborn and motivated and I don't give up easily. I'm very focused and we're not going to lose!"

Skarsgard added, "I'm very excited to meet [Harry]. I'll be with my U.S. teammates at the South Pole welcoming him. I'll be happy to see him when he arrives. We will be there first though!"

"No, I'm going to give him a high five when I meet him. I hear he's an amazing guy. I admire him for being involved with Walking with the Wounded for a couple of years and taking the time to help wounded soldiers. It's going to be an honor to meet him."
