    Yeah, no doubt Eric is, er, openminded! Very Swedish, in fact. Well, can’t wait for June to see just what’s going on in that basement. Not the sexiest locale, but Eric’s presence adds a certain je ne said quoi!

  • zee

    Damn. It’s like you have to be a nuclear scientist or something to get that code. The things i do for True Bood.

    Askars loking good!!!

  • heidi

    Whoop, meant je ne sais quoi!

  • TeamPam

    I find it weird also that they would get it on in the basement, but maybe they both are into bondage. Now I wonder if sookie will even surprise herself with feeling a bit jealous.

  • Sexy

    Shirtless sexy, need I say more. Yes! Askar is looking mighty HOT!!!

  • Pixie

    @Justin Sane /hans
    No, I like the Eric character with Sookie but I am not delusional to have transference to mistake Alex as being the same as Eric lmao. I think you are accussing everyone else as being fangurls because your a fanboy who wants AS all to himself!! How lame!!! I actually think he looked good S2 but this SEASON he looks not soo good.

  • Justin Sane
  • mint

    Eww each season Eric looks more like ASkars in real life. THAT’S NOT HOT. I would have given an arm and leg to watch him naked in first season when he had a nice body. His short dark hair doesn’t help either :S

  • heidi

    My suspicion is that Sookie may have a little reaction but the show will play it as a result of the blood connection at this point. I think there may be another character she is tempted by (I haven’t read the books, but it’s hard to avoid spoilers altogether–though I’m trying not to spoil for anyone else who has managed to remain completely spoilerfree). I hope Eric has a nice little boudoir down there somewhere, for Yvetta’s sake. Or maybe he takes her home. I think we get to see Eric’s house this year.

  • I have no talents I’m French

    Sorry I can’t match the two words HOT and LIKABLE regarding him. I really like Eric’s character but frankly that’s it, the actor doesn’t seem very bright to think he will force his fans to love him and kate and in this way be popular.
    Don’t tell me I’m a hater, because frankly I have to admit she was once beautiful, never bright but beautiful in a Paleolithic period. (OH AND I AM NOT FAT, stupid excuse but non applicable).

    The thing is if his PR thinks by getting ride of kate one day they’ll erase damage controls, it won’t, his behavior and supposed kindness are fake.
    Are people happy to be stringed alone that they are asking for more? Then why he wouldn’t do it, if people fall for it.
    The thing that I don’t like about him is that he’s making look like other swedes like him, and that’s unfair.

    The hottest thing Hollywood has to offer? please HW is full of empty heads that look the same and hotter (beauty doesn’t come from abs, at least not superficial beauty that doesn’t age well)…Well he’s easily replaceable..

    And I’m tired, there are other members in this show, more likable characters, people who have projects like Deborah, Anna, Stephen or Ryan… oh and I’m not trying to find a substitute in them because of a deception you’ll impute to the ASKB Drama, these people were likable from the start (and make the story as much as Eric) but it seems there has to be only one star in TB.

  • CC

    @Alan LOL. That too funny and so true. You can cut Askars fanbase by 50% and it’s still out numbers team Bill by a landside. LOL this site has just been taken over by very childish haters thats all.

  • Justin Sane

    @Pixie:

    hahahaa, now this funny billfanboy and conspiracy guy is hating me too lol. I think I’m going to cryyyyyy ;D

  • Response

    The photo looks enhanced lol he looked soo punny/thin in the poolside photos, they certainly buffed him up with some abs with the help of technology!!!

  • Justin Sane

    @Pixie:

    Billfanboy/Pixie, you put words in my mouth. I haven’t accused fangirls. I actually think that actors need fangirls, crazier the better ;D

  • zee

    @heidi

    re #110. I think Eric will have to slowly worm his way into sookie’ affections. She’ll probably be somewhat interested in Alcide this season. But i think we’ll get loooots of eric/sookie tidbits long the way.

  • RedRock

    @mint: True and the way they’re styling it is not flattering. He was so handsome with the golden locks last season. Now he looks tired and his forehead looks huge which makes him looking like he’s going bald. Maybe that is the idea though? Eric sounds like he’s going to be miserable this season. The outside matching the inside?

  • reallythebest?

    No Bill fan here. Bill’s Babes can keep Manbangs of Doom. Looks to me like AS is having some difficulty with the vetting process that any public figure is put through. Was it Jamie who posted that the truth would eventually come out about what kind of person AS really is? It would appear that the oh-so-glossy surface of AS is starting to show some cracks. People tend to intensely dislike the appearance of lies and hypocrisy no matter who they are dating. I hope those cracks are superficial at best, but in the ironic words of David Letterman (another one who crashed & burned in the end)…”something smells.”

  • Wow

    @Just insane/hans/JAM/jules etc……………………………………………………
    No I just find you boring now, there no use in keeping up with your madness fanboy!!!! What are you trying to post for over 200 again. It seems what others have been saying you are part of AS and KB PR team are true, just trying to keep them relevant lol NOW, what I meant with moving on is that I actually have a life and need to get off the internet for some time, not everyone has endless amount of time like you who is in a prison or asylum! LMAO

  • TeamPam

    I have read the books and yes she will feel attraction to someone else ALSO if it follows the books, well for that part at least.

    Is Kate in TB? why are half the posts about her I dont understand why she is talked about in here, can people find a thread about Alex and Kate’s relationship and stop posting here. It’s about a TB spoiler and 90% of the posts have nothing to do with TB. I thought it would stop at one point and people would actually discuss the topic at hand but it’s only gotten worse.

    If you think someone is a fake and posting under several names, then ignore it and then they won’t have anyone to respond back to. All this hate and anger over celebrities you don’t even know in real life. Who gives a shit. Do people come online to get into fights online lol, is this entertaining?

    Its about the damn show, not who celebrities date. Stay on topic

  • heidi

    @zee I hope so–not that I am in any way married to an Eric/Sookie storyline, because I’m not. But I also think that to downplay their attraction into something out of their control that was done to them rather than something organic to the way they react to each other would be a disservice to the story. Just not as interesting. In the meantime, though, bring on Yvetta!

  • Real Wow

    @ 101 Just insane/hans
    By the way now hans your taking my post name as well WTF is wrong with you a hole. Post 101 is not me, I can actually spell!!! Post 101 had way too many spelling mistakes to get the point across douchebag!!!

  • zee

    @Pam. I actually stopped reading Askars posts on jj to try to avoid the crazy posts but i see it has invaded the true blood posts too. Oh well, you can do like me and only read the posts with negative ratings (lol).

  • mimi

    @TeamPam:
    But the if we are talking about the serial, why are the spoilers showed on this site NEVER show other characters from the cast but just this character? I mean is this serial has only one character which would be Eric?

  • Justin Sane

    @Wow:

    Ok, suits for me FINE, Billfanboy/Pixie/Wow/Fritz/Gertel/andwhoewa;) You were here first so I suppose it’s YOUR privilege be such a bore. Get a life and a new nicky *wink wink* rotflmao

  • Àlan

    @Response:

    Its not a photo, its a screencap. Why are people in denial about everything that is Skarsgard? Just pathetic.

  • Justin Sane

    @Justin Sane:

    hmm, I’m little bit disapointed now. 125 messages now and I still don’t know why these haters hate so much Kate and AS and especially them together. I want to know the whole awful truth but not rumors, opinions, beliefs and other fictional things. Bring on FACTS, plz! X”D

  • TeamPam

    zee-Yeah I wanna see a slow build up of E/S. I wanna see this happen because I am a fan of the books and love them in the books. But I want it to happen in a similar fashion. I think he will prove himself this season. From the trailers we see that he actually tells her that her life is too valuable to throw away and we see that he will protect her and help her find Bill. So Eric is starting off on the right foot. I just want enough of a friendship and attraction to go into S4, actually this needs to happen right before S4.

    Mimi-I have no idea but we have seen all the other characters in trailers. They also won’t show that much of Bill bc his storyline is the big secret so alot can’t be revealed.

  • CC

    @mimi
    Do you not see what’s going on?? If JJ post about Alex/Eric it gets 200 comments, if he post about other cast members they get like 12, go back and check. If you want to see more post on other cast member then suport them, BUT AS I SAID THIS SITE HAS BEEN TAKEN OVER BY HATERS WHO COME HERE TO HATE. JJ does posts about Anna and Stephan alot….they get 12 comments. who do you think is gong to get the most attention

  • heidi

    @mimi, HBO is the one which released this spoiler pic, and I have no doubt there will be more to come which feature other characters. That’s what happened with the minisodes. And I expect they are starting with Eric because besides being a popular character, Sookie is going to have interactions with him before Bill, because Bill has been taken. And Sookie is the central character when all is said and done, because that’s the way the books are set up.

    I think Team Pam made an excellent point–this is a True Blood thread. There are the AS/KB threads if that’s the point of interest.

  • reallythebest?

    I say bring on the other characters! I think Joe Manganiello is going to be really good. All 6’5″ of him! ;) Can’t wait to see what Lafayette is going to be getting into. Jessica’s storyline looks like it’s going to be taking some interesting twists and turns, and Pammy is just my fav! LOVE her!!!

  • zee

    @TeamPam. Yeah. Show Sookie is a bit of a goodie goodie two shoes so it will def take time for her to get into someone like Eric. I cant wait to see how Ball plays this thing out.

  • TeamPam

    There is also another reason why we keep getting so many Eric promos, pics and spoilers in general.

    ***book spoilers***

    after the third book Bill, is not in the books all that much. Even in the third book he is kidnapped most of the time and since it’s all from sookies POV you dont see him again until she finds him. But from book 4 and on, Bill is barely in some books, he’ll appear a bit more in others but many times those scenes are with Sookie and Eric. Eric becomes the main character well next to Sookie. Even though they’re not in a relationship most of the books and only recently they are, Eric is still there alot for her. He saves her numerous times, protects her, does things for her and she even saves him too.

    Now AB said that Bill’s character won’t disappear in the same way he did in the books and will still keep him as a main character on the show and come up with other storylines for him but it still doesn’t take away the fact that Eric becomes a big focus. Even AS said he was told the first season he would just be introduced, then show a bit more in S2 and then after that will become a bigger character. Even Pam on the show, she said she expected to really be shown in S4 but AB said he will do it this season instead.

  • heidi

    I also expect we will get a lot of Alcide promotion because he’s the most important of the new characters introduced this season, I believe. And yes, Joe M is very hot, so HBO is not going to ignore that. (-:

  • TeamPam

    @zee-I am real curious how AB will play out the E/S thing too. I hope he doesn’t take it too far from the beginning of the show because it won’t be believable. He needs to gain her trust first and I hope towards end of season that we will see Sookie warming up to Eric. If anything will happen, I hope it’s just a short kiss or maybe just flirting. Save it for S4

    I am also extremely interested in the king of Mississippi storyline, and this whole V dealing.

  • Justin Sane

    @zee:

    Hmm, do you guys think that AB sort of favors Bill in storylines bc he’s Sookies hubby IRL? I’m not sayin this, but I know there are tons of fans who think that AB gives better storylines to Bill.

  • zee

    @Justin Sane I read an interview where Alan Ball said that he read the books and fell in love will the character of Bill – that Bill is a tragic romantic figure or something to that effect, so i think that’s what we’re seeing with True Blood. Based on what Ball himself has said i suspect that no matter what happens during the show’s run, at the end Sookie and Bill will end up together . But that doesn’tmean i wont enjoy whatever Eric/Sookie storyline he throws in. At least it looks as if we’re getting the triange so……

  • heidi

    @zee, mind you, he also knows television shows develop organically, so he may not end up at the same point he thought he might in the beginning. It’s probably even in his mind too early to tell where the show ends up. I agree with you that he definitely sees Bill and Sookie’s love as genuine and possibly tragic, no matter what happens.

  • Justin Sane

    @zee:

    Thanks Zee, thats what I think too. Its good that show differs from books, imo. I haven’t red the books, sounds too Harlequinesque but maybe I’m wrong?;)) I suppose that books are a reason some Eric/AS fans are angry at AB lol

  • karey

    i really want to see this promo asap

  • pretty in pink

    His chest looks strange. Maybe photoshopped. Doesn’t look real.

  • Passingby

    I quess the crazies from (the purse forum) have returned.They are superduper in love with AS that they cannot remain objective, it is soo pathetic!!!! ie justin sane or is it hans how old are you??? AS is really a nobody from a cable tv show get real!!!! Have you noticed that Alex started getting more attention when he started hanging on to Kate Bosworth look back to before the the PR spectacle happened, not that I hate her I just do not care about that but lets get real Alex does not have that much talent, strawdogs has been pushed back soo many times I cannot count now. He has been turned down for Thor, Super Hot Chris Helmsworth got the part and Captain America and other movies. People have there right to voice there opinions here without you accusing them of something that is not true. If you go to the other sites no one even cares about those two losers lol. By the way Alex head is small in proportion to the rest of his body has anyone else noticed that???

  • Sleepyhollow

    @Passingby
    LOL yeah I have noticed that his head is kind of small reminds me of the movie Beattle Juice, small head with huge body!!!
    Speaking of Thor it must really suck to visit his dad Stellan on the set. His dad got a part in the movie and he did’nt esp for being Swedish that is like a dream come true, Oh well ………..I can see why they chose Chris Helmsworth, he reminds me of a buffer younger version of Brad Pitt!!!

    Geez. What’s with all the hate?

  • AMAZING

    @Sleepyhollow:

    Yes, we noticed that AS was perfectly imperfect. His irregularies were what drew many to him. He’s tall, somewhat dorky at times but still takes awesome, beautiful pictures for the most part. He has an ability to seem almost like a different person in most shots. He still has that THING. There’s no disputing that , it just doesn’t do anything anymore more for me , personally. I wish him the best of luck and hopes he gets back to his old gorgeous self from last year this time.

  • TeamPam

    You know I usually don’t come onto these type of sites but was given a link to come on here to find out about a new TB promo. Now I remember why I stay away from these type of sites. This celebrity obsession or celebrity hatred is pathetic. Justpassingby and amazing, do you realize that you are just as bad as those who obsess over a celebrity, maybe even worse. At least they spend time on something they enjoy but you spew hate and waste your time on someone you can’t stand lol, do you realize how stupid that is. You think he is a loser but meanwhile you waste energy talking about him and waste your time even knowing everything he does. WOW I’m a fan of his on TB but you all know everything he does in his life, where he goes, where he eats, who hes with and everything he says and you’re not even fans. It’s like you look for opportunities to put people down and be negative, usually this is a sign of your own misery, so much time on negative energy. Who has the patience to focus on everything they hate lol. It’s funny and pathetic but if this is what makes you happy ok.

    You can continue to sit on websites, tracking every little thing AS does and spend your day talking about him but remember that your dedicating your time to him just as much as his fans lol. His life is important enough to be written about in articles, talked about by so many people. He has accomplished his dreams and living the life he wants to live. Nobody is sitting around talking about you.

    Anyways, have a nice life everyone and thanks for reminding me why I stay away from gossip sites. Try not to be so negative and focus on things that actually matter to you lol
