Alexander Skarsgard finds some non-fanged action in The East

We recently heard that "True Blood" vamp Alexander Skarsgård might spend some of his daywalking downtime traveling back a few centuries for a Viking action epic called THE VANGUARD.

Now comes word that the dreamy Swede could head to THE EAST for some thrills. The project would pair him with actress Brit Marling (ANOTHER EARTH), who'll play an agent infiltrating an eco-terrorism group. Skarsgård will play the group's leader seeking vengeance against unethical corporations, and his inherent hunkiness will likely complicate matters. 

The movie will be directed by Marling's SOUND OF MY VOICE collaborator Zal Batmanglij, whose name is awesome because it's like Batman plus two sound effects from the campy 1960s Adam West show. ZAL! GLiJ!

Anyway, Skarsgård will next be seen menacing James Marsden and Kate Bosworth in the superfluous STRAW DOGS remake, and playing Taylor Kitsch's older (and likely doomed) brother in next summer's boats-against-extraterrestrials board game adaptation BATTLESHIP.

Extra Tidbit: Team Bill or Team Eric? Who cares -- Sookie has a pretty rockin' bod.

I have a hunch that Eric is going to die this season in True Blood because he has so many film projects coming out. I know True Blood has a short filming shoot but i have this weird feeling he is going to die. WOW would that suck for True Blood

There is no way they will kill him he is a big part of the show and books, it's not Game of Thrones(which is the best show ever.)

He's not going anywhere. The ratings would tank.

Glad to see him taking on projects, he is simply the best thing in True Blood.

Movie sounds good. Skarsgard is a great actor and hope has a great, long successful career post 'True Blood'.

Also as much as I like Eric, I am Team Bill.
