Gratuitous Supernatural Nudity

There are no words.

For two days now, I have been taunted by rumors of an open-robed Eric appearing in a new promo. I have hunted high and low for this promo and it appears HBO have just released it online…while I’m trying to get a post up, here are some stills from askarsswedishmeatballs.

This damn thing should be high rotation on HBO, what the fuck is WRONG with them?

I would sit in front of my TV for six hours straight without a pee break to see this.

And in other True Blood naked man meat news, @JoeManganiello tweeted this last night. Apparently there was an article with it but I found it hard to summon up much interest in reading anything with this in my face.

It is here if you’d like to try your luck.

I gotta tell you, I was not feeling this guy for Alcide at all when he was cast, and I’m reserving my opinion until I see him in the role.


I demand a face off between Eric and Alcide in season 3. I DEMAND IT.

    holy shite Joe has a smokin’ body and I’d also have to say Eric rocks the robe better than Bill πŸ™‚

    SVB, check your FACEBOOK PRONTO!!! Legalease just posted the actual scene where he’s wearing the robe and a freaking AWESOME E/S where he gives away a little too much emotion showing Sookie how he feels about her!

    LOL! Offically agreed upon! Alcide/Eric showdown demanded! I love the pics of both of them. But it’s offical Alexander is THE SEX! *sigh* I really tired of dying but ASkars just does that to me. Okay, here I go…*dies*

    Wooohooo. I am first to comment for once. Yes, I have just rewatched all these clips over and over again. Well the Eric Northman at least. Sorry but who cares if Bill is attacked by weres. Skipped that one when I saw what it was about.

    Anyways, yes I had there were more but 6 all on the same day. WTF. I am happy but geesh they could have give some of this like two weeks ago when were watching some of the more boring minisodes. Sorry Sammy lovers but watching his brother put a gun in his face was not doing it for me.

    Now as far as the conversation with Eric and Pam. Talk about tense. Pam has put her finger on it already. The Viking out of control. WTF. That is book 10. No plan if my memory serves me right.

    Anyways, the season is shaping up to be a hell of a season. Can hardly contain myself for the next three days.

      Oh I would love to be that bathrobe, yumm yumm. And might I also add, because noone’s said it…. Look at that V-line, I just love it! Worldwinning ass, GP, V-line, beautiful body, eyes, face ‘gggggrrrrrr’ πŸ˜€

    To borrow a line from the finale, God bless whoever made those pants! Who knew they made them that low? How am I supposed to fall asleep now?!?

    Joe definitely does look good, but maybe still a little too macho for me? I’ll take the Viking over him any day! Although the combination of the 2 onscreen will definitely be drool-worthy.

    • 20 L
      June 10, 2010 at 3:41 am

      He’s too macho for me too!

    • June 10, 2010 at 3:46 am

      There IS such a thing as “too macho”, but I’ve gotta admit that I wouldn’t bring it up while those muscles were being put to good use – like ravishing me up against a wall. Or… well, no, pretty much just that. Wall. Yesssss.

    All this time we’ve been talking about Eric vs Bill but I think Alcide is the one to worry about re: Sookie. I just saw a segment from last night’s premiere on eTalk Canada and all they were talking about was Sookie/Alcide.

  13. 24 pbt
    June 10, 2010 at 3:42 am

    And yes Sookieverse. Saw Joe as Alcide immediately as far as the body type. And what a body I might add. As far his acting, I will reserve judgment also.

    There is a story in True Blood right? Oh yeah that’s right. I watch the show for the plot. Hell no. I watch for the man candy.

    No surprise to those who know me best.

    3 days until the v-ddiction continues.

      There’s a plot?

      *mops brow*

      My heart belongs to Eric, but my goodness that Alcide’s hot.

  14. June 10, 2010 at 3:43 am

    There are 6 clips. Feather just posted the link on Sunny’s blog.

    I love the robe, the dipping waistline to give us a taste, but I didn’t care for the scene in the clip the screen caps are from- I didn’t like seeing THAT Eric.

    • 28 Freyja
      June 10, 2010 at 3:47 am

      I just loved it!!! He was fierce and hot! He is of course very worried about loosing Bill because he’s in deep shit and Pam too.

      • 29 Sibyl_Vane
        June 10, 2010 at 4:12 am

        I just didn’t think he would be losing his shit like that. You know the Bill lovers are going o be all over that too, like he was evil and planning to get bill, but someone got him first. Made him seem like an ass to Pam too.

    Alcide is cute but he does nothing for me. My heart belongs to Eric!! Oh God, that man just does things to me!!! Good Lord!!!

    • 31 Freyja
      June 10, 2010 at 4:13 am

      Same here πŸ™‚ Alcide is ok I guess, but he does not get me weak in the knees and panting over a silly little photo or a clip or a smile πŸ˜‰ And besides Alcide is to macho.

      • 32 Millarca
        June 10, 2010 at 4:37 am

        Alcide has raw, animal magnetism, but Eric..*sigh*….his eyes mesmerise me and his smile melts me into a puddle of goo.

    Read something recently where Joe was lamenting the fact that it may be very a long time before he sees carb on his plate again. He’s been taking getting ripped for TB VERY seriously. I think we can safely say that his program has been successful – the dude is seriously HOT!

  19. June 10, 2010 at 3:47 am

    F**k me with a chainsaw!!!!

    Damn that is HOT!

    The scene with Sookie is perfect. He seemed, dare I say, embarrassed that he revealed that to her.

  21. June 10, 2010 at 3:53 am

    Pffffft. Past the eye candy, what’s left to the posers? At least it just means more for ME! I’m not blinded by a smooth physique, rippling muscles, the little hip bone dip OR that disgusting “GP” (aka GROSS plenty!)!! I’ll take Bill any day…now that looks like a real man! Y’all are just blinded by what society tells you, not what a real Southern gentleman can do for you. Bill is beyond just sex – he’ll watch over you while you sleep and kill any creepy dudes that did you wrong. NOW THAT’S LOVE.

    SOOKIE + BILL = 4E!

    • 45 Millarca
      June 10, 2010 at 3:58 am

      Yeah. I can appreciate them, but they and the arm muscles are just a teeny bit too much for me. I can smell the musk through the computer though. πŸ™‚

    FINALLY others can see the red robe lol, and I also don’t know how they show all these other stupid promos but not the one with Eric in this robe, it’s longer and better than the others. Oh well glad you all finally get to see it now.

    We can talk about the 6 clips here right? I’m guessing the youtube version will be updated on this post.

    I LOOOOVE the 4th clip, Sookie is taken aback by what Eric says and even he is taken by surprise lol. Those are some real feelings coming through awwww

    Damn JOE got some bod on him

    Ahhbillluvre. Sorry if I didn’t spell that correctly. BTW love your avi of the Viking. That’s OK there are plenty of us here who will take your portion of the Viking. It appears we are all sharing the love here. Well most of us. LOL

    Yes, Eric can not be compared to William Compton aka the farmer. The Viking is fierce, loyal, dangerous and sexy has hell. Bring it on Eric Northman. I like my vampires, tall, mysterious and oh so sexy. GP any day of the week folks.

    Worship him “bitche*”~Love that line from Laffy.

    After meeting Joe last night at the premiere, I love him even more as Alcide. His personality makes him even more attractive, if that’s possible.

    I don’t see what the fuss is with Joe’s body. There are plenty of well-build men in Hollywood. Impress me with the acting and screen presence. His track record isn’t great so far, but the casting is usually good on the show, so we’ll see.

  30. June 10, 2010 at 6:28 am

    I am LOVING that his robe is RED.

    All 6 clips are at:


    The one where Eric tells Sookie that she’s too valuable, then realizes that he’s said too much…priceless!

    Well isn’t this a goddamn sight to wake up to?! I need to go lie down again! Better go get the kids to school before they notice mummy dribbling at the computer! I sure wouldn’t kick either of these delicious men out of bed for farting that’s for sure! πŸ˜€

  33. 63 DutchGirl
    June 10, 2010 at 8:19 am

    Well Good Morning Eric and Alcide.. What a thing to wake up too..
    My heart will always be with Eric, but woa Alcide !!

    Also lovin the red robe, nice touch.

  34. 64 Dwimordene
    June 10, 2010 at 8:56 am

    Hahaha.. Eric robe reminds me of boxing, lol… It doesn’t fit him, lol… But he looks niceeee… Such perfect body, fit but not exagerated. Sorry, I don’t like Joe’s… it is too much, it reminds me of those bodybuilders, ewwww. Eric is so smooth and white and proportionated… Greeks could have used him for modeling πŸ™‚

    • June 10, 2010 at 3:21 pm

      I completely agree with you.

      Alcide leaves me pretty much cold. And that’s in line with his book character which I never really liked. I will never, never betray my Eric! πŸ˜‰

    My stomach just did some involuntary clenching (okay and some other ‘lady’ bits as well – thanks for that description Rhonda!!).

    We may have to add ‘Eric’s naked chest’ to our drinking game….It looks like we are going to have plenty of opportunity to down a drink with the amount of AS chest porn on offer this season…I am hoping it will rival Bill’s ‘Sookeh’ in frequency!

    And Joe M just won a new fan with that pic….lets see if his portrayal of Alcide can win me over as well….

  36. 67 Lkc
    June 10, 2010 at 1:21 pm

    Well what more can be said, both men are SMOKIN HOT! While my heart will always belong to Eric my body wouldn’t mind a little gratuitous ANYTHING on the side with Alcide!

    I haven’t liked book Alcide since CD, leaving Sokie alone on the floor after she was staked, bleeding with a room full of hungry vampires. But I’ll give TB Alcide a chance. Who knows what AB thinks of his character, he probably thinks he is a tragic figure also and will candycoat all his actions too!

    June 10, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    AS def appeals more to my type (skinny, muscular but not too beefy) and omg he is looking good, but Joe…wow….if show alcide doesnt use sookie as much as book alcide does, i could def make a case for him to be #2…till quinn comes along that is =P. Bill who?

  38. 72 LydiaB
    June 10, 2010 at 2:47 pm

    Joe definitely looks and acts like the Alcide I pictured, but the way he’s been promoting himself recently has been a turn-off for me.

  39. 73 Davida
    June 10, 2010 at 4:34 pm

    I’m 34 wks preggo and these pix damn near threw me in to early labor. I swear! Joe–too macho??? OMG! No way. I love Askars’s height, but give me dark and muscular any day. Alcide looks just as I pictured him (different eye color, I think). I sure hope his acting is just as good.

    • 74 Jan
      June 10, 2010 at 9:16 pm

      I read some where Joe is 6″5
      tall ,dark ,hot

      • 75 Davida
        June 10, 2010 at 9:28 pm

        Holy smokes! Jan, you’re right. I just looked it up on IMDB. Joe’s 6’5″ and Askars’s 6’4″. I know I will get kicked off this board for this, but that bumps Joe past Askars in my book. As far as the book characters go–I’d still take the viking over the werewolf. If they happen to do something really groovy with Alcide on TB…like cut that freakin’ beard, make him less of a sneaky Sookie user, and less enamored with the likes of Debbie Pelt…well, I don’t know…I just may root for Alcide.

    And I agree we must have a face off between a Nakked Eric Northman
    and a Nakked Alcide Hevereaux!!!
    Now who would win this contest?
    I’m going to say it would be a tossup!
