If you've been wondering just who it was that sank your battleship, Universal has the answer for you: It was Alexander Skarsgard.

Yes, get out your little plastic pegs and get ready to defend B-7 with your very life, because the 'True Blood' hunk has signed on to co-star in 'Battleship,' an upcoming sci-fi instant classic based on the legendary board game of the same name. Skarsgard will feature opposite fellow TV stud Taylor Kitsch ('Friday Night Lights').

So what is 'Battleship' going to be about, other than, you know, battleships? Well, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the story "revolves around an international fleet coming together to battle a water-bound armada of otherworldly origin. Skarsgard will play Kitsch's brother, a straight and narrow naval officer whom Kitsch, a wildly spirited naval officer, idolizes."
