PHOTOS: True Blood Hunk Alex Skarsgård’s Younger Brother Also Plays A TV Vampire, And Yes It’s Super Homoerotic

Screen Shot 2014-07-23 at 8.54.39 AMMaybe we’re late to the party, but undead True Blood hunk Alexander Skarsgård has a hot younger brother named Bill who plays — get this —a vampire named Roman Godfrey on the Netflix original series Hemlock Grove. Pale-skinned Swedish typecasting anyone?

The series also features werewolves and strong homoerotic undertones. Sound familiar?

And speaking of those undertones, here’s what Bill had to say recently about the onscreen sexual tension between him and costar Landon Liboiron:

“The sexual tension between the characters, and that was never full intention from neither one of us. But I’ve seen a lot of fan art, that they just want to picture that.”

And while an initial Google search for said art came up short, here’s a closer look at Bill anyways. You know, for inspiration:

    Maybe it wasn’t the actor’s intention but the writing is sooooooooo thinly veiled, it’s incredibly homoerotic. The only problem is that his character is like a nymphomaniac with women so it’s just cowardly subtext in lieu of any actual, overt homosexuality. What a shame.

    Everybody knows Travolta and Tom Cruise are both insane, gay, closet cases and scientologists. Travolta is so crazy that he let his own son die of epilepsy because he did not give him any medication, following the dogmas of scientology.

    I don’t see any controversy here. This book will have nothing to add.

    @Pistolo: spoiler alert!!!!!! They share a bed and a woman in the second season, although the scene is very tame.

    Before anybody gets their panties in a bunch, this is JUST MY PERSONAL OPINION, but I don’t find this actor to be in the least bit attractive. He looks like a meth addict is some of these pictures.

  • Tracy Pope

    @Billy Budd: Wrong article.

  • tazz602

    I find Landon Liboiron to be hotter than him in the series, he is too brooding, and you see Landon full on butt ass naked in the very first episode (no frontal) and several times in both seasons – ALMOST a full frontal in the last episode of the second season – they so should have done it!!! LOL

  • Billy Budd

    @Tracy Pope: Yeah, but the right article is CLOSED.

    Well, there’s no sexual tension because they had the chance to release it in season two. Peter, Roman and their shared girlfriend had a threesome.

    @coy1979: Whoa! Where did you find that? What is it from??

    • coy1979

      It’s in Swedish, the original name is “Himlen är oskyldigt blå”. The American version is “Behind Blue Skies”.

  • lykeitiz

    @coy1979: Thanks! I’m guessing there’s no peen in the American version….

    Ha ha. There is a pic posted online of the penis used in the scene mentioned in these comments…sorry guys, but it’s a really lifelike dildo/effect, and that’s it. The pic was posted by the make up artist, and the thing is SO realistic, it is a little creepy. It is without balls, hairless, and circumcised…so I doubt it is a replica of any Swedish man’s, esp. The younger skarsgards. I think you can find it through Google…anyway, good for a laugh. No wonder the actress looks so completely comfortable hanging onto an actors erect penis. she wasnt…happy googling.
