He’s probably best-known for his role in “True Blood,” but Alexander Skarsgard really shines in his new flick “The East.”

In the just-released trailer, the “Battleship” hunk stars as Benji, a founding member of an eco-anarchist group whose mission is to punish anyone who harms the earth.

In a recent interview, Alexander provided some insight into his character’s mindset. "It's very important to Benji that he is not the leader. There's no leader. They discuss everything. It's very decentralized, it's a collective."

“The East” is one of the featured films at the Sundance Film Festival and also stars Ellen Page and Patricia Clarkson.
