We all loved him as Eric Northman in HBO's hit series True Blood and are anxiously waiting to see him in The Legend of Tarzan that hits the big screen on July 1st. Last night, Alexander Skarsgard made a guest appearance at the MTV Music Awards to present the award for Movie of the Year and shocked the audience by walking on stage in his tighty-whiteys, all in an effort to promote his new film.
"You're not wearing any pants," Tarzan co-star Samuel L. Jackson said as the pair approached the mic.
"Nope. No pants," Skarsgard replied.
"Why?" Jackson asked him, weary of the potential response.
"Me Tarzan," Skarsgard responds in a matter of fact tone. "Gotta give the fans a little skin."
Turns out, the Swedish actor considered going topless, but heard that Zac Efron had already beat him to the punch a few years ago. Regardless, he made quite the statement and definitely got us even more excited to see his upcoming film. Check out the trailer below.
