Alexander Skarsgard: "True Blood" Stud in the Big Apple

He's always easy on the eyes, and today (June 11) was no different when it comes to the oh-so-hunky Alexander Skarsgard.

The Swedish stud was spotted perusing the streets of the Big Apple while chatting on his cell phone to kick off the work week in NYC.

The sighting comes just one day after the fifth season premiere of Alex's hit show "True Blood" - with fans being treated to a sneak peek at what’s to come in the subsequent episodes.

A new almost-two-minute video has just been released by HBO, giving bits and pieces from forthcoming shows. And it looks like Season 5 is going to be amazing.

Along with Skarsgard, “True Blood” also stars Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Sam Trammell, Christopher Meloni, and Carrie Preston.

Per the synopsis, “In a world where vampires have ‘come out of the coffin,’ Sookie Stackhouse, a telepathic waitress, discovers a new world of different creatures when she meets Bill Compton, a vampire.”
