Alexander Skarsgard is tall, blond and handsome and the latest name fans are rallying behind in the hopes he’ll play the title character when “Fifty Shades of Grey” makes the leap from novel to big screen feature.
The “Battleship” star had not heard of the book when he sat down to talk about his new action sci-fi film at the junket in Hawaii over the weekend, but after Access Hollywood's Shaun Robinson informed him about the erotic role, Alexander laughed.
"Where do I sign?" the "" hunk smiled.
Shaun made sure to prep Alexander on many facets of the character, created by E L James, and he reacted to one of the more titillating details, one that he’s already dealt with on his hit HBO show.
"He’s got a sex chamber? My character has that on ‘True Blood.’ He’s got his little dungeon,” Alexander said, referring to vampire Eric Northman.
"I was born to play that part," he added with a grin, of Christian.
NO. STOP IT. DO NOT PASS GO. DO NOT EVEN JOKE ABOUT THIS MONSTROSITY ALEXANDER BAD THINGS WILL HAPPEN.
