Alexander Skarsgard is tall, blond and handsome and the latest name fans are rallying behind in the hopes he'll play the title character when "Fifty Shades of Grey" makes the leap from novel to big screen feature.

The "Battleship" star had not heard of the book when he sat down to talk about his new action sci-fi film at the junket in Hawaii over the weekend, but after Access Hollywood's Shaun Robinson informed him about the erotic role, Alexander laughed.

"Where do I sign?" the "True Blood" hunk smiled.

Shaun made sure to prep Alexander on many facets of the character, created by E L James, and he reacted to one of the more titillating details, one that he's already dealt with on his hit HBO show.

"He's got a sex chamber? My character has that on 'True Blood.' He's got his little dungeon," Alexander said, referring to vampire Eric Northman.

"I was born to play that part," he added with a grin, of Christian.

"True Blood" will return for its fifth season on June 10, and joining the fold is Christopher Meloni, who Alexander said is a great addition to the cast.

"He's amazing," Alexander said of the former "Law & Order: SVU" star who returns to HBO (he previously starred in prison drama "Oz") in the new role of Roman, who is part of "True Blood's" Vampire Authority.

"It wasn't easy. His first day was basically him coming in. It was five pages of dialogue. Half of it was in Aramaic," the Swede continued. "That was like, 'Welcome to the show, Chris.' But he's a trooper, a really amazing actor - obviously -- and a great guy. We've had a lot of fun together on the show."

Another star Alexander had fun with is Rihanna, who he joins for several scenes in her feature film debut, "Battleship," which hits theaters on May 18.

"She's pretty amazing," he said.

But the actor noted that he wasn't surprised by how easily Rihanna took to acting.

"I was honestly not surprised. Just like, watching her on stage, or her videos, you can tell [from] her energy and her charisma and personality, you know that she's gonna be great in that part," he said. "I knew that and she really is."
