Zoo Blood

Alexander Skarsgård Campaigning To Reprise Zoolander Role

Bon Temps’ resident 1000-year-old vampire, Alexander Skarsgård, is ready to brush off his best Blue Steel for the sequel to Zoolander…if Ben Stiller will have him, that is.

You may — or probably may not — remember Skarsgård as Meekus, one of Derek Zoolander’s equally-dimwitted roommates who meets a tragic end during a sexy but inexplicable gasoline fight. The True Blood star told British GQ of his noble intentions:

“I’m pitching it right now. I wouldn’t want to miss that. Well, I’m hoping they would do something like the scene with Hamlet’s father, and that Meekus will come back as a ghost — I mean, he’s definitely dead.”

This sequel is practically writing itself. To (re-)familiarize yourself with a young, pre-undead Alex Skarsgård, here’s a deleted clip from Zoolander of him being really, really, really, ridiculously good-looking.
