Alexander Skarsgard Strips Away His Sexy Vampire Looks in New Movie 'Hidden' (Photos)

Alexander Skarsgard is doing a film again. We’re all still hunting down the bastard who cast him in that craptastic Battlefield and who gave him one of the most detached characters in recent blockbuster cinema. Alex is not allowed to chew scenery, because as one of the most recognized vampires since Robert Pattinson, the man has a career the size of a planet. In his latest film, Hidden, the usual fans of Alex will be tossing their popcorn at the screen and will be running out of the cinema in screaming hysterics. Is this just a case of brilliant method?

Hidden is being filmed in Vancouver, Canada and is touted as an apocalyptic thriller about a family who has to take up shelter in a basement after an apocalyptic event. In the latest images from the set, Skarsgard is wearing dirty clothes and sports a beard from hell. His anorexic appearance offers up a post-apocalyptic Viggo Mortensen-esque gait and his stare into the camera, with his Backstreet Boys hairdo, gives his fans a completely different and raw side to him.

In the scenes, Skarsgard’s character shows the family the entrance to the bomb shelter under a piece of wood (this is also where we go when Kim Kardashian arrives in our town). His gaunt appearance serves as a haunting reminder of how bad an actor is able to look when doing proper method. Skarsgard admitted to Bullet magazine in June, “I spend seven months just playing Eric on True Blood, but when I’m on hiatus, when I get my five months off, I’m not looking to play the same character again.”

We’re excited for the film and to see Skarsgard’s transformation, even though he looks like a member of Menudo-post-Ricky Martin. Let us know in the comments below if you like Skarsgard’s new image in his latest film and what you think about Alexander Skarsgard’s new movie!

    Slow you roll there, Celeb Dirty Laundry article writer. Alexander is still hot as all f%*ck even if he does look like he’s been snorting Lilo dust with the homeless crack vagrants. So what if he’s dining on air and ice cubes (a.k.a. The Natalie Portman Black Swan Diet), and he’s two steps away from knocking over a Dunkin Donuts? The man is infallibly, ridiculously gorgeous. I can’t wait to see him tear this movie up, and my popcorn will be staying right where it belongs…on the floor of the theater after I trip over it from stumbling in the dark on the return from the bathroom, thank you very much.

    Oh, and please slap yourself silly for even referencing the movie Battlefield in an Alexander Skarsgard post. That’s one John Travolta masseuse session for you, mister.

      This has to be one of the coolest comments I have ever received on an article I wrote. I copied and saved this as a memento. ABSOLUTELY GENIUS! Bravo!

        Thanks! I have my moments now and then…when the planets align and the Earth’s rotation is just so. Usually happens when I’m drunk Skyping, but that’s a whole other bag of Cheetos. I love a good post that makes me giggle, and yours did the trick. Sorry for the double post, but my iPad got all tangled up in its underpants over those pics you posted. Well, that and Skyping. Drunk. For reasons.

        My iPad is now pregnant, by the way. This is The Skargård Effect in action and just another danger of the interwebs.

    Askars is Hot any way you shake it and I and my family absolutely loved Battleship. When he was killed, I stood up and said, “Well, I’m done, time to leave!” lol. He was playing a straight military man and I thought he played it well.
