True Blood Booty Call: Alexander Skarsgard Nude (and with Impeccable Timing!)

Alexander Skarsgard and Anna Paquin as Eric Northman and Sookie StackhouseMy appreciation of Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgard and infatuation with the fictional Eric Northman are probably too well documented already, but someone had to catalog the True Blood eye candy for Heroes and Heartbreakers readers.

This season of True Blood has given us amnesiac Eric, and when Eric gets all doe-eyed, Sookie just melts. Then, as often happens on the HBO show based on Charlaine Harris’s novels, the clothes come off. And we get gratuitous booty shots.

(ETA 8/19/13: Breaking Skarsgard nudity news! For Season 6 finale nakedness, check out this post on Eric's full frontal scene!)

Want to revel in a tight Swedish rear? I’ve got you covered (and Alex uncovered).

Naked Eric Chats with SookieSeason 4 may offer the bounty of Eric’s nudity, but the first time we caught a glimpse what was to come was back in Season 2.

In “I Will Rise Up” (Season 2, Episode 9), Sookie has her first dream of Eric after he tricked her into drinking his blood. Earlier in the episode, Bill explains that by ingesting a drop or two while sucking on Eric’s chest Sookie may now be attracted to him. She denies it. Cue naked-in-bed-together dream. Just as the episode hits 27:00, we get side Northman butt. And it was at this point that many a Trubie joined Team Eric.

But that was a dream. What might Eric really be like in action, so to speak? True Blood kicked off its third season with the Sheriff of Area 5 flaunting his considerable skills with the new Fangtasia dancer Yvetta. Following Sookie’s interruption of their bondage fun in “Bad Blood” (Season 3, Episode 1), Eric nonchalantly walks over to Sookie as viewers get a glorious view of his glutes in action at 13:36 into the episode.

Later in “Night on the Sun” (Season 3, Episode 8), we see Eric indulge in a little male/male action with Talbot. Sure, Eric is just getting it on with the King’s husband for the chance to murder him, but it’s hard not to be distracted by another chance to see Skarsgard side butt (at 53:14) just before he stakes Talbot from behind. And if you start the scene a little earlier, you get to watch ASkars take off his shirt for your eyes (OK, it was for Talbot. Let me pretend.) at 45:28.

Finally, the fourth season’s romance between Eric and Sookie offered up a Skarsgard smorgasbord. (Did I mention he likes to be naked?)

After all the waiting, Sookie finally gives it up to Eric in the woods. It wasn’t as hot as the scene from the book, but “I Wish I was the Moon” (Season 4, Episode 6) did give us Alex naked in the woods (get your booty fix at 58:03).

That getting-back-to-nature thing included all wide-angle shots. Rather disappointing for those wanting to get up close for the dirty. Luckily, HBO knows we’re all pervs. As such, 17:01 into “Cold Grey Light of Dawn” (Season 4, Episode 7) the show explodes with Eric and Sookie nudity in a steamy sex montage. This time the two bring it indoors. Apparently those trees last episode were blocking the cameras from providing quality shots of Alex’s ass. Thank goodness they brought it into Sookie’s house.

Many who came into True Blood as fans of the Sookie Stackhouse novels have waited a long time to see the infamous shower scene from Dead to the World played out on TV. Well, Eric and Sookie do step into the shower 18:58 into “Spellbound” (Season 4, Episode 8), but quickly step back out into some shared dream where it’s snowing and sunny and there’s a giant bed. The walk to the bed offers a nice view (19:52), and there’s plenty of action in the bed, too (21:13). So, if you excuse the whole bonded on blood V-trip thing—and I’m really trying to—the eye candy is pretty delicious. The episode does offer a non-hallucinatory clip of Skarsgard adding a log to the fire in Sookie’s bedroom. He does this naked (35:28), and it may have you considering using your fireplace in the summer. Just in case a striking man decides he’d like to keep those flames active for you.

That covers it for the Alexander Skarsgard backside visuals on True Blood for the time being. I may be ready for Eric to get his memory back, but I hope he leaves the clothes off.

Have you been ogling the Viking on True Blood or do you wish they’d amp up the Alcide action so we’d research all those scenes for you, too? Let me know what you think, and, of course, leave any additional eye candy requests in the comments.

Updated 8/19/2013Eric went full frontal on last night's Season 6 finale, “Radioactive”!

As much as I adore Alcide, I'm too busy ogling the Viking. I never want him to have his memory back! Unless they take it in the direction of the books and have Eric and Sookie together - I hate Sookie and Bill together, and I have a feeling they're going to try to get them back together soon. Ugh.

Thank you, Chelsea, for your dedication to the man-candy cause!

@redline_ - I suffer for those in need of man-candy everywhere. Heh.

@MamaKitty - Didn't you kind of wish you could sub in Alcide in that little dream three-way last week? Like an Eric/Sookie/Alcide sandwich could have been hot, too. Not that anyone asked me... ;)

I have to say I have been infatuated with Eric since I first saw him. I wish they would stop cutting his hair but other than that I can't complain. I didn't think I'd be a big Alcide fan because I wasn't when I read the books. But the scene where he strips in front of Sookie so they can track Eric had me thinking other thoughts. Then I was very jealous of Sookie when she had a wet naked Eric in front of her and a naked Alcide behind her. Yummy.

@Melanie and Rae - I loved that scene, too. Between adorable drunk Eric and protective Alcide, it would have been good anyway but removing clothes elevates it all.

I like Alphahole Eric better. A crying male is anathema to my libido. Yeah, I know men have feelings too, but I like it better when they're channeled into things like pulling down a castle wall with their bare hands, or pillaging me to ease their pain. Oh, wait. That was outloud again. ;)

@Melanie- RIGHT? On all counts. I didn't really care for him in the books but Joe is...wow. Yeah. Naked Eric and Alcide? *dies*

I've clearly found my new favorite blog.

Just a friendly tip that you can use HBO GO to skip ahead to the times referenced above. The streaming site buffers quickly, so you could theoretically jump to the ASkars points with ease.

I have always been an Eric fan because I love blond vikings--I say, bring on the fair-haired heros. I'm not in love with his butt, though. He's long and lanky. Alcide's butt, which we got a good view of last Sunday, is firm and round and muscular. I wouldn't mind seeing him with his clothes off a few more times.

Bring back Alphahole Erik - stat!

And yes, there needs to be more nekkid Alcide - there should ALWAYS be nekkid Alcide...

Chelsea, I spent hours looking at the utube postings for True Blood yesterday. Way too much time on my hands!

@Brittany - Joe M. has a glorious ass. Adonis ass, if you will. But I have no problem getting as much ASkars nudity as HBO is willing to offer me. Heh.

@Kiersten - Yes, more nekkid Alcide = win

@Louise321 - I'm a bad influence. (But I think it's why you like me.)

This is one of my all time favorite shows. Loved Eric from the get go. I don't really like Eric quite so whimpy. I would love to see him get his memory back but, not be as bad as he was or as whimpy as he is. I loved the naked Eric. I just kept waiting for him to turn around to get a peek of the full monty.
I thought it was funny that Sookie was complaining about the bugs in the woods but, wound up naked having sex in the grass.

I love Alicide. I love it when he transforms. However, it is all about the tall, naked, Viking. Well,l I love a naked Jason too. Actually, if they could have an episode when all the men are naked, I wouldn't be mad at True Blood.

Am I the only woman on the planet who finds Joe/Alcide totally uninteresting? I love my long lean Viking in all his naked glory, would love the full Monty at some point, but I not only love his gorgeousness, his eyes, his voice, he is a tremendous actor and that for me makes him really special. I'm sure Joe is a very nice guy and I don't mean to be negative, but for me his only contribution to TB is his muscle, which is a little too much for my taste. He has zero chemistry with any of the other characters and no personality.

I'd love to see me some Alcide. He and Eric are the best distractions for me when they decide to completely change some plots in the show from the book.

Sorry, I have to back the tall, dark and handsome one. Joe M does it for me. When he shifted in the woods, naked ass to the camera, he actually inspired a character in a book I'm writing.
I've always loved the wolves anyway ...
Can't wait to see who they get to play the tiger! :)

The viking vampire god makes me swoon.
Clothed or unclothed - it's ALL about the Viking.
