Hey Truebies, you know that iconic scene from the Southern Vampire Mysteries books where Eric dons pink spandex as a favor to Sookie? Well, good news, because True Blood star Alexander Skarsgård is totally ready and willing to shimmy around in a shiny bodysuit! 

Press play above to find out what the tall Swedish hottie shared about his future on the show, and then jump inside to learn what True Blood show runner Alan Ball revealed to us about a freaky Dexter crossover:

Skarsgård told us, "[The fans] talk a lot about a shower scene. Eric and Sookie (Anna Paquin) in the shower, and also a scene where he's in pink spandex. Those are very common—both those questions…I'm very excited about well, both, but definitely about the spandex. I hope that will come soon…I might want to go the gym before the spandex session."

When we asked Ball if he ever had weird True Blood dreams, Ball revealed, "I dreamed I was in Dexter, and Dexter wanted to kill me, and I wanted to say, 'Wait a minute, Michael, it's me. I know you.' That was my dream, but I don't really dream about True Blood." (As you no doubt remember, Dexter star Michael C. Hall appeared on Alan Ball's last HBO show Six Feet Under as middle sibling David Fisher.)
