Walking With The Wounded Team US Training With Alexander Skarsgard


Walking with the Wounded site posted a new article today discussing their training with Alexander Skarsgard. Excerpt below:

We arrived in Malibu at a beautiful horse ranch, owned by Inge’s friend Klaus. It was at this ranch we met for the first time the newest, and final, addition to WWTW Team US; actor Alexander Skarsgard.

What a great complement to our team! I am even more confident that we have a winning combination now.

That morning we all sat for breakfast and then embarked on a four hour hike up some California switchbacks. Alex immediately connected with each and every member on the team during the hike. On our way back, we accidently trespassed onto Klaus’ neighbor’s property. He seemed a bit upset… we did our best to reason with him, but got nowhere… so Mark threw out the typical excuse… ”The blind guy was leading the hike!” Blame it on the blind guy. I always have to take the fall, however, if I’m honest, I never did like those no trespassing signs.

It must have worked, as we managed to leave the property unscathed!!! However, no shortcuts for Team US…. we had strict orders to retreat in the direction we came.

This past weekend in LA was a great experience for Team U.S. It gave us another chance to bond and continue to experience and gain knowledge in each others strengths and weaknesses. I always appreciated my team coming together and acting as my guide during these training sessions.

In closing, I believe the US team is shaping up nicely! We are dynamic. We all bring certain strength that makes it quite unique.

Now that we have Alex to complete our team I am confident we are on our way. Alex is genuine, easy to talk to, and displayed his willingness to be a team player. He’s not afraid to get his hands dirty and was eager to train in order to be an asset… and an asset he will be as he is in excellent physical condition!


Next up, Norway. I am looking forward to meeting up with all the teams!

Alexander Skarsgard New Face for Calvin Klein

True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard is the new face of Calvin Klein. This is not the first modeling gig for Alexander. He was also  the face of  “Hickey Freeman” two years ago. The ad image above shows the scent “Encounter”.

[box] The Encounter Calvin Klein campaign tells the story of unresolved tension and desire between a man and a woman,” said Thomas Burkhardt, vice president of marketing for Coty Prestige, the fragrance licensee of Calvin Klein. “It’s meant to be open to interpretation. It also makes you a bit uncomfortable, which is a trademark of advertising this brand.”[/box]

Vote For Alexander Skarsgard-Alpha Male Madness Poll


It’s that time of year again. Eonline has their version of March Madness except it is for fans to vote for their favorite “alpha male”. Yes Alexander Skarsgard is in the running. This is the first round of voting. For the full poll please click here:

There is also a way to add a name (as if anyone else other than Alex should be there!) by leaving a comment:

Did we leave off someone you love? Note his name in the comments and we’ll consider adding him back in as a wild-card competitor. Vote early and often, kiddos, because this will be one of our briefer polls. (Barring any weirdness, we’ll probably end this late on Wed., Mar. 16, i.e. tomorrow.)

Good luck!
