Today's a day as good as any to remind you that Alexander Skarsgård had a small but crucial role in the 2001 male modeling exposé that was Zoolander. He was just 25-years-old then.
We all love Alexander Skarsgård.
Because, like, what's not to love?
He's like really, really ridiculously good looking.
WHICH LEADS US TO THIS: that time he was one of the goofy male models in Zoolander…
It’s blurry, but that’s him.
Here’s a clearer reminder.
Yes, that’s Eric Northman! (Before he was "so hot right now").
He played Meekus, one of Derek Zoolander’s clueless roommates.
Watch him in motion.
He was quick with a pun.
AND ORANGE. MOCHA. FRAPPUCCINOS.
There's even MORE of him in this deleted scene:
He really did deserve that frappuccino.
That’s how convincing he was at being a hot male model.
Even though we all know how that ended.
A moment of silence for Alexander Skarsgård as Meekus in Zoolander.
Long live Meekus! #RIP
