    This guy is S

    Alex is SO hot. Glad that he can now get back to movies and the stage. TB will NEVER be the same with limiting his performances.

    His performances were limited due to his being effectively fired last season at the demand of SM and Anna P. You see SM was promised all t he screen time and the fans and the fame, but Alex came along, and changed all of that ;) He came back for the fans, Buckner had to bring him back, but he would only use him when he deemed fit. This season will be all about Bill and his miraculous turn around from major douche to wonderful caring, non lying hero …. lolololo Alex/Eric will not interact with anyone in the cast other than Pam, and all of that will take place in Sweden. I believe the character is dead, but all will not be revealed until the end of the series. It is very sad, because Alex considered these people friends. This information is all from behind the scenes sources from over the last couple of years of bitching and moaning on the set and behind the scenes, from season 4 until last season. Buckner did not have the guts to stand up to the bullies. Too bad. Alex is True Blood, not the simpering AP or the wooden SM.

    He’s flying to Paris for a rendezvous with Margot. That or his baby mama is about to give birth. Lol. Too bad if it were true about that SM rumor, I think Eric deserves Sookie though he didn’t end up with her in the books.

    @d: I think you’re right . I get the feeling that as has been used by people he thought were friends .

    Give me a break Says:

    Considering how the books end, it’s hardly strange that the show most likely won’t end with a Eric-Sookie pairing. It does seem strange though that the show won’t use Eric/Alex more as he certainly seems to be the breakout star from the series. I’m not sure internet gossip about Anna and Stephen pulling their weight to stop Alex from becoming a bigger name on the show is to be trusted but regardles it is strange. Well, it is to an Alex-fan at least. Another thing is if Alex himself minds being a smaller part of the show. I could imagine he doesn’t actually mind much at this point – TB not being what it was, the time it takes from other projects and so on.

    but alex gets $350/episode same as sm and ap though?? all 3 get the same and even if they use alex for 5 out of 10 episodes it’s union rules they have to pay him for whole 10 episode season so sm and ap can suck it ,, literally. but give more gossip please?? I have heard all his castmates save for kbvs and they preacher guy Michael hate him and taunt him.. please dish?? he trusted all the wrong people.

    Speaking of Margot. When is this Tarzan thing suppose to start shooting?

    ladybug Says:

    @need more dish: All his castmates hate him? Riiight.

    And this weird stuff about AP and SM trying to get him fired is bizarre.

    @hrm: No shooting date set yet. Margot is filming a movie in NZ, Waltz will be filming a movie in April and Alex is filming TB. I wouldn’t be surprised if it doesn’t start until mid-summer or a bit later.

    He looks stunningly good here – and that in a simple bleached blue jeans and a white T… A simple outfit – but great effect!
    There are a lot of more pics on santress and ASM – good grief, he needs almost a gun license for this charming smile! ;)

    As for S7: I don’t think, that AP and SM had something to do with it, that eric possibly has less screen time in S7. And I say only POSSIBLY. Up to now, we still do not know any details. Should eric’s role actually be smaller then, then this could be owed to the story. The script authors changed so much of the storyline – compared with the books. So everything is still open – so to say. And anyway if one bethink the season final of S6. We will see.

    I can’t imagine, that any of his castmates would wish him any harm – and it wouldn’t make sense anyway. Sookie and Bill are as much important for the show as eric (as long as the whole thing is based on the books), and therefore also the actors – even though eric is the more interesting character, for several reasons.
    Sure, the show isn’t imaginable without the character of eric – and without alex in that role. And surely every actor is interested to get much resonance by the audience – but that’s a normal professional ambition. But it doesn’t mean, that you would wish a colleague something bad, because he or she has (for the moment) the bigger attention.

    @marina: To me, it looks like one of these Protection boxes, where you put in a rolled poster/big picture. May be he bought something like this, during his stay.

    @Cafélady: He’s got a mailing tube with a Milk Studios label on it. What is is, probably a print or something.

    As for TB and Eric’s screen time: I don’t know, and neither does anyone else. I think the AP and SM ‘are plotting against’ Alex conspiracy theories have been out there for awhile and pop up again every so often.

    @where: Where is he going? He checked in at the British Airways gate, so presumable off to London. If he goes anywhere else, who knows.

    Oh Hey Alexander Skarsgard Hey!

    Aww look at this sexy hot SOB making his way through LAX Swag and all. LAX just got Werk! But Where ya going Swedish Boo with the extremely tight fitted white shirt (TacK!) that is showing off those man pecs of his extremely well. Gawwwwwd he is looking fit and fine. I would Own it Lawd knows I would. (as the great Meryl said in Ausgust I am just Truth telling is all)

    As for Truth telling the best thing Tru Blood can do is make a Eric Northman movie the early years cause I have never felt so ripped off by an awesome Character as I was with his I have yet had closer for Eric Northman because they never really gave him much when he could have been the most awesome TV character to date. So someone needs to get on that and trust me there is $$$$$$$$$ to be made from that for everyone.

    Did I already ask where is going? That’s all I care about so WHERE!!! I need to know! Cause I just turned around and he ain’t here. Sad face, just sad that I am not all over that hot Swedish bod. Morning Noon and Night and just after dessert YUM! Yes he is! I might just weep into everyting I own. “might”

    Who don’t like my posts just go sucK IT! You may all resume.

    Bad Taste/mean girls Says:

    i actually believe that .there was an article back in feb 2011 US weekly stating that there where serious probables with s.moyer and a.paquin and though those gossip rags are usually comletley full od shite it just made real sense after watching season 4 and all the fake lovey dovey crap that came after the s4 screenings.
    and especially season 5 the producers forced sm and as together for a whole season just to make them seem to get along!! and it was all to the detriment of the show .
    i dont much like either bill or moyer i think he’s and egotist and jealous of alex and his own wife!!!

  24. 24
    Bad Taste/mean girls Says:

    oh but it was quite clear alex wanted/needed to leave the show …maybe he was exhausted and they make them work even if theyre not feeling well .

    …or maybe alex is not the angel you think he is
