He plays sexy vampire Eric Northman on True Blood, and now Alexander Skarsgard is amping up the hotness even more: the handsome star has just been named the face of Calvin Klein's new scent, Encounter ($40-$72). "Alexander Skarsgard perfectly reflects the Encounter attitude — modern, stylish and unapologetically masculine," said Catherine Walsh of Coty Prestige (the brand behind Calvin Klein's fragrances).
Alexander will star alongside model Lara Stone in the campaign, which will play up the tension between a man and a woman. "Their idea for their concept was very intriguing to me — it was almost like a short film, and very film noir. It felt interesting to me," Alexander told WWD. Look for the juice, which contains notes of cardamom, rum, patchouli, cognac, and cedarwood, out globally this September.
