Mystery man

Alexander Skarsgard’s famous male date is all over his secret Instagram account

First things first: True Blood and Big Little Lies star Alexander Skarsgard has a secret Instagram account.

Or, at least, it was a secret until BuzzFeed went ahead and ran this headline:

I Think Alexander Skarsgard Is Secretly On Instagram And I’m Having Heart Palpitations

Either that or there really is a person named Rex Danger (possibly related to Anthony Weiner’s Carlos Danger?) out there with unfettered access to Skarsgard’s life.

Here’s a sampling from this mysterious account, which has racked up 40k followers despite the fact that it’s not a verified account of Skarsgard’s:

Eagle-eyed web surfers clocked this as the exact outfit Skarsgard wore to the Met Ball.

This one’s captioned “gender fluid.” Hmm:

Rex Danger, you enigma.

Then there are these photos of 30 Rock actor Jack McBrayer. The two are reportedly BFFs:

Jack hates the spotlight.

McBrayer was even courtside with Skarsgard at this year’s Emmy Awards:

Jack thinks award shows diminish the integrity of our art.

And at last weekend’s SAG awards, Skarsgard upped the ante and brought McBrayer as his date. The two posed for photos all night: Cute!

Below is Skarsgard’s acceptance speech–Jack must have been so proud:
