Alexander Skarsgard has become the new face of Calvin Klein.

The 'Battleship' actor has signed a deal with The Fashion house to front its latest campaign for one of its male fragrances.

Alexander is believed to have shot the ads two months ago although all other information is being kept quiet for the moment.

This is not the first time the 'True Blood' star has appeared in a fashion campaign.

Two years ago he was the face of suitmaker Hickey Freeman in an ad campaign shot by legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz.

Hickey Freeman's creative director Joseph Abboud had said of Alexander's role: ''We want to attract the younger and younger-thinking customer. Hickey Freeman was much more traditional under the old regime. It lacked sex appeal.''

The Swedish heartthrob recently revealed how he likes to pay tribute to his home country by wearing a lot of their fashion brands.

He said: ''I'm interested in fashion and I love a lot of Swedish brands: Acne, Whyred, Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair and Hope.''
