Joe Manganiello of ‘True Blood’ Says There Will Be a Lot of Nudity [AUDIO]
Hunky “True Blood” actor Joe Manganiello stopped by “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” on Tuesday to chat about what we can expect from the fourth season, and how he got cast as sexy werewolf, and the women who want to sit on his lap.
When you look like Joe Manganiello, you are going to have people who ask you for certain special requests. Joe tells us of an occurrence of this.
“This guy came up to me and said ‘Hey, can she take a picture sitting on your lap?’ and I said ‘It’s really not appropriate this is my fiance sitting here, I really don’t think it’s appropriate,’ and he said ‘Dude, this is my wife.’ and it’s happened multiple times.” Joe adds, “I don’t know if it was like they have their freebie lists, like if you ever meet him you get the hall pass.”
Growing up Joe loved werewolves and vampires and dark content, so it was no surprise that he was a fan of the show before he got cast in the role of Alcide Herveaux.
“They brought me in for another werewolf character, Cooter, and there was a whole bit about it in the audition and basically the audition was me coming out of a transformation. Transforming from wolf back to man.” Joe was originally only hired for 6 episodes on the show, but after his first episode aired last year they offered him six more years.
Currently on the show Joe is in a love square with Sookie, Bill and Eric. Joe explains why his character has a bit of an advantage,”There are these 3 guys who are all vying for her affections and she is kind of stuck in the middle, but what is interesting is my character is the one who is not a vampire so he can go out in the daytime.”
Joe also confirms that this weeks episode of “True Blood” is going to be crazy, “It’s about as crazy as it gets, there’s a lot of nudity. I’ll just say that.”
Watch “True Blood” on Sundays at 9pm on HBO.
