Alexander Skarsgard Used to Be a Total Dork (VIDEO)

Alexander SkarsgardA long time ago, in a Viking land far far away, before Eric Northman (aka Alexander Skarsgard) was turned into the Sexiest Vampire Alive, he was the biggest doofus you could possibly imagine. I know it is hard to wrap your brain around this concept, but just try. Think about the biggest geek you knew from high school right now. Got it? Good -- that was Eric. He talked high and squeaky, had buck teeth and a buzz cut. He was tall and scrawny, wore funny green shirts, used words like "Ex-squeeze me?" and his favorite song was "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" by Wham!

Clearly turning into a vamp was by far the best thing that ever happened to him.

Don't take my word for it, watch this clip from Zoolander, one of the funniest films of all time BTW, to try to comprehend how THAT (above) could have possibly come from THAT (below):


There's some type of dating/relationship/makeover lesson in this for all of us, ladies, though I'll be damned if I know what it is. I'm too busy trying to figure out how young Eric survived that terrible explosion without vampire powers.

Would you have dated Alex Skarsgard if he looked and acted like Meekus from Zoolander?
