Alexander Skarsgard's horror role

True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard has been unveiled as the star of upcoming horror flick Hidden.

Variety reports that the 35-year-old has joined the cast of the Warner Bros movie, which documents a family's battle for survival in a bomb shelter after a mysterious outbreak takes hold of the population.

Alexander - who is best known for his role as sadistic vampire Eric Northman in the hit HBO series True Blood - will next be seen on the big screen in the soon-to-be-released blockbuster Battleship, alongside Rihanna, Liam Neeson and Taylor Kitsch.

He previously starred in Lars von Trier's 2011 drama Melancholia and Rod Lurie's remake of the 1971 thriller Straw Dogs.
