Alexander Skarsgard Plays Dad [PHOTOS]

I’ll let you take a minute to full appreciate how adorable Alexander Skarsgard looks with children. Have you finished? Fantastic! Alexander was spotted on the set of his new film What Maisie Knew and seemed to be having a lovely time in between breaks with his younger co-star.

The film is based on the 1897 Henry James novel of the same name and tells the story of 6-year-old Maisie whose parents go through a bitter divorce. Alex joins Julianne Moore and Steve Coogan, playing Julianne’s much younger second husband. I’m actually really excited to see this movie. Sure, Henry James is one of my least favorite American authors, but Alexander Skarsgard!

Alex, known to many as Eric the vampire thanks to True Blood, has been keeping himself quite busy. Now that he knows he will definitely have a job next year since True Blood was just renewed for a fifth season, maybe he’ll take some time to relax. Cause let me tell you, that boy has been a working machine. Well, busy in the sense that every time we catch sight of him he seems to be walking around New York.

Make sure to check out all the photos in the gallery to fully appreciate how good he is with kids. That girl seems to be having so much fun. I mean, who wouldn’t if they were hanging on Alexander’s arm. Hmmm, I wanna hang on Alex’s arm. What are your thoughts about the movie? Can’t wait to see it?
