HBO is home to three of the hottest men on TV, only one of which has a pulse - figures.
“True Blood’s” leading men - who appear on the cover of Details this month - share their pasts, their presents and how life has changed since donning fangs.
Stephen Moyer, 40, who plays vampire Bill Compton, said HBO is responsible for his relationship with fiancée and costar Anna Paquin, 27.
"[HBO] put us in these hotel suites, and we hung out for a while and got to know each other,” Moyer said. The attraction was there, so it was a matter of whether we acted on it or not."
Alexander Skarsgård, 33, is not new to fame. The pretty face behind vampire Eric Northman was a child star in Sweden before venturing to New York. His father, film star Stellan Skarsgård, is also no stranger to the spotlight.
"At the age of 12, he had girls standing outside the house,” Stellan said. “They would ask his younger brother Gustaf to let them in, and sometimes it worked."
“True Blood’s” token mortal, Jason Stackhouse - played by Ryan Kwanten - doesn’t leave much to the imagination for viewers.
"I'm very comfortable with my body,” Kwanten said of his frequent carnal activity on the series.
"My parents have seen the show. My mom walked in on me a few times when I was living at home - you know, caught in the act. She's seen me in uncompromising [sic] positions before.”
STEPHEN MOYER IS A "PAPI CHULO"
Gets the blood goin...LOVE ERIC!!! Been a fan of Stephens work for a long time....he plays Bill perfectly!! This is by far the best TV out there. Can't wait for the new season!!!
i am a HUGE fan of the show Eric makes my heart race, hes the only in my age group :)... HOTNESS!!!!
The best show in the world!! June can't come soon enough!! These boys can bite me any day!
Ellen DeGeneres adopts dogs then throws them out on the street and looks like the kid from Dennis the Menace grown up. True Blood is a good show (but this article is a little flimsy-wristed). RA-RA-RA-RAAAAAAAANDY!!!!!!
Women are so pathetic.
Definitely agree-Sam and Lafayette are missing here! Can't wait until June! (Season 3 starts in June- Angel Arnold)
Sam Trammel should be on this list.
will someone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let meknow if they have already started season 3....I am in Germany and going CRAZY!!!!
I love the men of True Blood.....Lafayette IS a REAL nice mug of hot chocolate as well!
I here the Bourgeois Gypsies have some song on the upcoming season, can;t wait
I can not wait for June to hurry up and come. I am dying to see the new series and all the hot male bodies. True Blood is number 1 in my bood.
I agree! Where are Sam, Hoyt, and Lafayette (with his smoking bod)?
So where are all the feminists and self hating guys who can't get fun women scolding us and them for our hedonism, while reminding us that it's about the intellect and personality.
If you want a sample of the hilarious double standard, there is a story about a lady from "American Idol" posing in a magazine (allure or something) where the feminists and Lame Guys of America came out in force to admonish.
How about some Latino's
Where is EGG? I know he died last season but THAT is what I call a MAN!
ERIC is so so so so so hot....
That darn Alexander is all I am saying....Makes you want Eric to bite you....LOL...LOL...LOL...
Sam is the man! But I guess the nice guy finishes last.
Next season, Alcide (Joe Manganiello), is going to have lots of us women changing "Teams." I'm "Team Eric" all the way, but Alcide is just TOO HOT!!!
Alan Ball, if you're listening, quit taking so many liberties with Charlaine's books. If you want to write your own story, go ahead! Remember the days of General Hospital's Luke & Laura? Eric & Sookie belong together. Stop with the Bill nonsense...
Yeah, where is Lafayette and Sam? Their publicists need to get on the ball!
Eric is uber hot, but NONE will beat the beautiful Godric.... NONE
Please tell me CNN doesn't consider the bizarre use of quotation marks around the term "True Blood's'" [sic] inclusive of the possessive for some bizarre reason in the headline and article, above, is characteristic of correct, or even regular, usage? Come on people, you can do better. If you're not sure how to do it properly, write your sentence around it, like the folks at Details did.
To narrow this down to just 3 men. Ah, much eye candy on that show. I agree where is Sam. I love him!! As for the male nudity...it's a nice welcome change. I do have to hand it to HBO, though. Nudity has never been an issue for male or female with their shows.
I doubt very highly anyone will be afraid to visit Louisiana for fear of vampires! You're joking, right? Twilight sure hasn't hurt Forks, Washington.
Love. I love these men. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Not sure if I said that enough...Good God...
Lafayette is the best character in the series, and while I'm sure all of these guys are cool, my wife digs Sam, and Steven Moyer is a HORRIBLE actor ... please for gods sake follow the books and get Sookie with Eric ... Eric is the man.
Ryan is super hot! WOW! I'd dip in vanilla anytime for that!
Mmm mmm good! But I wish they would turn that hard-boiled Eggs into a vamp. Now THAT is a fine brotha'! Poor Tara.
Hot boys...it's the only reason I watch!
got caught by his mom? yikes...sounds pretty yucky to me...but these being celebs in la la land...figures.
WHYYYY are the pictures so SMALL? lol
Where is Andy Bellefleur? This is just not a good list....
Well, this article was a let-down.
Yeah I agree, I think Hoyt and Godric are hotter than the ones listed. :D
Steve, I did look online and saw some advertisements for the true blood drink, though it is not blood or blood products. So, vampires could not live off it. That means they would have to have some other means of surviving, and I just dont think they could without a supply of blood. We would have heard about it by now and I have not read about it on the internet either. I just dont want people to be afraid of coming to visit Louisiana because they think vampires live there.
"I think the show is great too...though it is not based on true events. I just hope people dont think that vampires are real and don't think they live in Louisiana. You can tell its fake too, because they don't sell that blood drink in any stores, because I looked."
You can buy the true blood drink online, so your theory about vampires not being real is probably wrong as well :op .
I think people would know if they looked into this show, that it is based on a fictional book series by Charlaine Harris. If people are stupid enough to believe its real, I say let them ;)
Love Alex as Eric... no one else could play that part with such sensuality yet cruelty.. I really cannot WAIT till him and Sookie get together, that will be just awesome! Though I will be jealous ;)
Sam Trammell who plays Sam Merlotte, Nelsan Ellis who plays Lafayette Reynolds and Jim Parrack who plays Hoyt Fortenberry need to be added to this list! I know there's probably a limit to who gets listed in these articles but all of these fellas are hot hot hot! The new fella who plays the werewolf in Season 3 is pretty cute too! True Blood is one of the best shows running and I can't wait for Season 3! Woo Hoo!
All these guys are hotties, as well as the 3 reasons why I watch this show!
both men and women are hot naked.....these three men are gorgeous. as for the guy who said there is too much male nudity, you need to relax. women need some eye candy too. jeez
Where is Lafayette? The drink is in stores...I've seen in "Atlanta".
I think the show is great too...though it is not based on true events. I just hope people dont think that vampires are real and don't think they live in Louisiana. You can tell its fake too, because they don't sell that blood drink in any stores, because I looked.
then u r not looking in the right place. i have purchased a 4 pk @ my local f.y.e store. they r damn good
Better do a Part Two with Sam, Lafayette, and Hoyt! Best wishes to
Anna Paquin and Steven Moyer.
yes, have to say, these guys are delicious, but, Sam, well, he definitely deserves some credit too...
OMG these men are sooooo delicious!!! i love true blood ! cant wait for JUNEEEEEEEEEEEE! SAM is def missing here ! hes a hottie also!
I just love these guys on HBO's True Blood...the vampires, especially. I'm 70 yrs old, and I still hope to get bitten by one sometime!
These men are so delicious!
LOVE LOVE LOVE the show...and the guys, can't wait for the next season!!!
Yeah where are Sam, Hoyt, and Lafayette ? Eric Northman is the hottest friggin' vampire, since his maker Godric. I have a pic of him on my computer laying in bed his upper half exposed, the rest of him covered in a sheet, and I had to close out the picture for fear of hyperventilation. lol ! I also have a picture of Sookie and Bill together, where Sookie had just been bitten by Bill. Very hot picture ! This show to me is the best show on HBO. Big Love and Hung come in 2nd and 3rd respectively. One of the best shows on tv period !
I agree. Where is Lafayette? He is a nice mug of hot chocolate!!!!
Um, Excuse me? Where is Hoyt with his succulent LIPS and great EYES?
I love lamp!
I for one would be more than happy to have any of these boy toys to play with. Yummy. Can't get enough of this eye candy.
I agree....VERY disappointed that Sam wasn't in this!!! Next to Eric, he is my second fave!!
Where is Lafayette? I think he should be included more in the show's hot men whether he plays a gay character or not. It seems he is over looked by the show.
Did he really say "uncompromising"? Oof! At least he's nice to look at....
men are beautiful nude if they have the right body just like women.
Way too much male nudity nowadays. WAYYYY too much. Women are beautiful naked. Men... well, men look much better with clothing on.
if you're a man – you got serious issues
if you're a woman – you got serious issues
both women and men look amazing sans clothing
I would have no problem whatsoever getting any of those 3 naked at anytime.
Oh, they're wearing clothes! I'm so disappointed.
thought there'd be spoilers......at least the show's getting much deserved attention, even if it is for the pretty faces in the cast.
HOT HOT HOT!!!... more please...
