Alexander Skarsgard was spotted sporting a bit of scruff as he stepped out for a casual stroll in New York this Tuesday.

The 44-year-old heartthrob threw on a hoodie that read Exodus on front with a pair of fashionably faded jeans, accessorizing with a pair of sleek black shades. 

His latest outing comes after it emerged he has signed on for a recurring guest star role in the third season of critically-acclaimed series Succession, according to a Monday report from The Hollywood Reporter.

No doubt there will be awards buzz as he is set to play a successful yet confrontational tech founder and CEO named Lukas Matsson.

Succession swept up at the Primetime Emmy Awards last year as it won seven trophies including Outstanding Drama Series.

It also won two Golden Globes earlier that year including Best Television Series - Drama.

The series from showrunner and creator Jesse Armstrong follows the Roy family who are known for controlling the biggest media and entertainment company in the world.

And their world begins to change entirely when their father steps down from the company.

As with several other series, the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the highly-anticipated season but production is currently under way.

According to HBO the plot from the upcoming season will be: 'Ambushed by his rebellious son Kendall at the end of season two, Logan Roy begins season three in a perilous position. 

'Scrambling to secure familial, political and financial alliances, tensions rise as a bitter corporate battle threatens to turn into a family civil war.'

Skarsgard will not be the only actor guest starring as he joins Sanaa Lathan, Linda Emond, and Jihae.

The move brings the Swedish actor back to HBO where he earned a 2017 Primetime Emmy and 2018 Golden Globe for his role as Perry Wright in Big Little Lies.

He also starred as Eric Northman in highly-popular HBO series True Blood throughout all seven seasons from 2008 to 2014.

More recently, Alexander starred as Nathan Lind in action flick Godzilla Vs. Kong which was released in theaters and for streaming on HBO Max on March 31.

There still is no premiere date set for season 3 of Succession.
