Here's a link of Alexander Skarsgard who plays Eric on True Blood taking a shower in a Swedish movie.  No nudity but a whole lot of hot Alexander bare chest.

I wonder if we started a petition we'd get to see Eric naked on True Blood sooner.  I mean assuming if they stay near the books that eventually he will end up with Sookie.  But do we really have to wait that long to see some skin?  He's much hotter than Bill.

He's not done a bad job, though he is not what I envisioned Eric to look like when I read the books.

Delish!  I think he's way hotter than Bill on the show, esp since he's gotten the haircut.  I almost always find guys hotter with shorter hair.  I watched some other clips of him they had on YouTube and, really, he's barely recognizable.  I don't know how old the clips were, but he looks a lot younger and (obviously) tanner.  I think he's a lot leaner on True Blood too.  Could be the paleness though on that count.  Honestly, if someone didn't say who he was I don't know that I would have recognized him.  Still hot though.  :-)

Ditto.  I just envisioned Eric to be bigger, taller, sexier and more macho.  sorry.  this guy is just too metrosexual for me.  I imagined someone like Vince Vaugn, only blond Viking looking.

Bigger? Alexander Skaarsgard is 6'4".  I think he's perfect as Eric. I'm not happy with Stephen Moyer for Bill.  I pictured Bill bigger and brawnier.

Yes, 6'4" is tall but not Bigger, you see?  Vince Vaugn for example has about 60 pounds of muscle on this guy and is 6'6".  I mean bigger. Like a Viking.  I do like Stephen Moyer for Bill but not at first.  The one I really had to get used to is Anna Paquin for Sookie.  I love her acting, but she doesn't fit the description of Sookie in my mind.  Pam is not what I imagined either.  I would have liked to see that gal that played the blond secretary on the West Wing be Pam.

Well he looks really muscular in that shower clip from that Swedish movie. Maybe he slimmed down for the show to look more vampish.  He has very broad shoulders.  I don't know I like him as Eric. I really don't dislike any of their casting to the point of not wanting to watch the show.
