Alexander Skarsgård can’t keep his clothes on, even in sub-zero temperatures!
PETTER NYQUIST/SPLASH NEWS
In a new recently released photo from his South Pole charity trek back in December, the super-sexy True Blood hunk strips down again to celebrate his team’s journey across Antarctica for Walking With the Wounded.
In the photo, which was taken on Dec. 13, 2013, Skarsgård stands in the snow in only tiny black briefs, boots and a hat (check out those abs and pecs!). On his face he wears a fake yellow beard and sunglasses.
The whole team carried beards with them during the 200-kilometer trek to provide lighthearted entertainment when morale was low during the arduous journey.
This isn’t the first photo of Skarsgård stripped down in the South Pole. Last month, one of his teammates took to Instagram to share a photo of Skarsgård completely naked on a toilet in the middle of the snow!
Hey, no complaints here.
Thanks to fallen_star1 for sharing
Prince Harry, Alexander Skarsgard, and “300” actor Dominic West are getting down to the wire before their epic race to the South Pole later this month — and TMZ has obtained awesome photos of their training sessions from around the world.
FYI, Harry, Alex, and Dominic (each leading a separate team) are set to depart on their subzero 208-mile journeys to the South Pole in about three weeks — with an ETA of December 17 — and they’ve been training like madmen for the last year.
Polar guide Inge Solheim — who is training the three men — tells TMZ, they’re all in phenomenal shape, prepping by ice climbing, skiing, and hiking around the world.
For example, the Skarsgard pics show the “True Blood” actor heavy backpack training in the Santa Monica mountains in September — then camping, cross-country skiing, and cold weather conditioning in Norway in October.
Harry and Dominic, meanwhile, got their cold weather training in Iceland. Seriously cool pics.
The trek is being planned to raise awareness for a charity called Walking with the Wounded, which raises funds to benefit wounded veterans around the world.

The stars of HBO and Showtime are colliding, as Alexander Skarsgard (“True Blood”) and Cameron Monaghan (“Shameless”) are in advanced negotiations to join Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep in Philip Noyce’s adaptation of “The Giver,” an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap.
The Weinstein Company and Walden Media are producing the movie, which is based on the bestselling book by Lois Lowry.

“The Giver” is a fantasy tale set in a dystopian society that fears freedom. All memory of human history has been erased, emotion does not exist and citizens’ professions are chosen for them.
Brenton Thwaites stars as Jonas, the community’s Receiver of Memories who spends his days being mentored by the Giver (Bridges), who teaches him to confront and understand the lies that inform society. As Jonas comes to grips with living an unsheltered existence, he begins to acquire a taste for freedom and honesty, becoming an outcast in the process.

Skarsgard is in talks to play Jonas’ father, while Monaghan will play Jonas’ best friend Asher.
Streep is nearing a deal to play the community’s Chief Elder, who maintains order in the seemingly utopian society.
Noyce is directing the adaptation of Lowry’s celebrated 1993 children’s book. The movie has been a passion project for Bridges, who is producing with Nikki Silver of Tonik Productions. Dylan Sellers and Julie Rappaport will oversee the project for TWC. Production will start this fall in South Africa.

Long attached to play the title role, Bridges bought the rights to “The Giver” two decades ago after being introduced to the book by his daughter.
Skarsgard, who plays Eric Northman on HBO’s “True Blood,” is coming off a trio of well-reviewed indies and next stars opposite Andrea Riseborough in WB’s thriller “Hidden.” He’s also set to star in the studio’s reboot of “Tarzan,” which “Harry Potter” director David Yates has been developing for the past year. He’s repped by CAA, Principal Entertainment LA and attorney Gretchen Rush.
Monaghan, who plays Ian Gallagher on Showtime’s “Shameless,” recently booked a lead role in DreamWorks’ “Glimmer.” He’ll soon be seen in the indie thriller “Mall” and TWC’s “Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters.” He’s repped by UTA and attorney Chad Christopher.
