From vampire to … dad? Alexander Skarsgård recently transformed for his role in the upcoming film Disconnect, changing up his haircut and color for the movie.

Normally a close-cut blond when playing Eric Northman on True Blood, the actor showed up to the New York City set of Disconnect looking decidedly different. And while it’s definitely a big change, we can’t say it’s all that bad. Tell us: What do you think of Skarsgård’s new look?

He looks like Jim Carrey.

Like it long, but go back to Blond!!!! Eric has to be blond!!!

Sue on

He does look like Jim Carrey! It’s for a role and he isn’t the first actor who has had to change his appearance for a role.

Who cares about his hair color?!? Dude’s hotter than the fire of a thousand suns.

Chrissy on

“Hotter than a 1,000 suns” I totally agree Melly. I don’t care what color his hair is, unless it’s on True Blood, and then it has to be blonde for Eric. But the man is sex on a stick, I don’t care what his hair looks like!!

Melissa on

He’s hot no matter what.

@Melly LOL! Hotter than a fire of a thousand suns indeed. I remember that line from 10 Things I Hate About You…although in that movie it was used in a much different context. :) Either way Alexander Skarsgard is beautiful with or without the Jim Carrey hair. He smolders.

I am sure his boyfriend doesn’t care one way or another
