TV Guide Talks to Skarsgard, Moyer & Manganiello (New Photos)

By  |  4 Comments

TV Guide has a terrific new interview with True Blood stars Alexander Skarsgard, Stephen Moyer, and Joe Manganiello, complete with a gorgeous new photo of the “unholy trinity of hunkdom”, for this week’s cover story. Seriously, these three need to be interviewed together more often. “Joe and his giant jumpsuit!”

TV GUIDE MAGAZINE: What’s it like to play your characters now that they’re in such different circumstances this season?
Bill had to let Sookie go. And in doing so, he’s become a better man and a better king. It’s been great as an actor having that sort of guiding light for him.
JOE: Alcide is wrestling with that beast inside him. I like moments where that thing inside him that he’s so afraid of is also this place of great strength.
ALEX: I love Eric’s vulnerability. But it’s tricky because even though he doesn’t know who he is, you can’t play it too flat. You can’t chop off his balls. Then there’s his inner struggle. If they break the spell, then Eric finds out about all the things he’s done in the past and who he really is, and that scares him. He’s like, “Hey, I’m kind of happy in this little house with Sookie.”
STEPHEN: Eric and Sookie are the tipping point of this season. The best stuff that’s in the show is their stuff.

    I love how Stephen Moyer sounds so complimentary about Eric and Sookie. Their future looks quite hopeful now. 🙂

    This interview is HILARIOUS! I was trying desperately not to burst out laughing. Wouldn’t it be great to hang out with these three??? Besides the obvious hottness, they’re also charming and funny! 🙂

    Ummm, after last week and this week, kinda waitin’ on that whole “Bill becoming a better man and a better king” thing, ’cause from where I’m sitting, Stephen must have a different definition of “better” than the one commonly used. 🙂
