Details has released all three of its May 2010 True Blood covers featuring Alexander Skarsgard, Ryan Kwanten, and Stephen Moyer. I know Skarsgard is the only one with his own PopWatch category, but I’m going to have to vote Moyer’s as the sexiest. Give the covers a look but not for too long: You’ll start noticing things like how nicely Skarsgard’s and Moyer’s heavage bookends Kwanten’s naturally bare abs (and loathing yourself). We’re takin’ it to a vote after the jump.

The interviews have also made their way online. We find out just how much of a young romantic Skarsgard was, and how proud. Best show trivia: He studied Bela Lugosi’s Dracula, Murnau’s and Herzog’s versions of Nosferatu, The Lost Boys and hours of nature documentaries to develop Eric’s patented look. “It’s, like, you see this big male lion, and he’s chilling in the sun, and he sits up and he looks at something, and you don’t know if he’s going to pounce or if he’s just going to go back to sleep,” Skarsgard said. “You never know if he’s bored or he’s frustrated or what.”

Kwanten’s chat reveals that while he’s not at all hung up playing dumb on the show, he wants you to know there’s more to him than his body — like some book he’s writing. Best show trivia: Alan Ball, who spotted him in the movie Flicka (?), swears he didn’t see him shirtless until they shot the pilot. “He came on to the set and I thought, ‘What the hell is that?'” Ha.

Moyer’s sitdown reveals how serious he used to be: When he was young, he only wanted to do theater, but agreed to do a cheesy coffee commercial for the money because it would only run in Scandinavia — Skarsgard grew up watching it and likes to tease him about it. Hilarious. Now, however, he’s definitely loosened up. Best show trivia: Our fascination with his pronunciation of Sookie baffles him. “We were given that pronunciation very early on by Charlaine Harris herself. Sookie rhymes with cookie. It doesn’t rhyme with kooky,” he said. The writer, Meghan Daum, asked him if he calls Anna Paquin that at home. “All the time,” he deadpanned. “When she’s chained up.” Naughty sense of humor and likes to swear. Am I now on Team Bill?
