With a cast comprised of Alexander Skarsgard, Ryan Kwanten, and Stephen Moyer – a.k.a.  Eric, Jason, and Bill – could the men on True Blood get any hotter?  Yes, apparently they can, as Joe Manganiello, season three’s new werewolf, has just been promoted to show regular. 

Recognize Manganiello, the muscly hunk who plays Alcide Herveux on the show?  That’s because you’ve seen him before on One Tree Hill as the troubled bartender who had a brief romance with Sophia Bush’s character, Brooke

The Pennsylvania native was a star athlete in high school, but went on to get his degree in drama from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.  In his early youth, Manganiello also toured with Goldfinger as a roadie, and even sang back-up vocals for their song, “Wasted.”

Mangeniello made his feature-film debut in 2002 in Spider-Man as Flash Thompson, Peter Parker’s nemesis, and continued to appear in Sam Raimi’s trilogy as Flash in the third film.  The talented actor has had numerous T.V. spots including How I Met Your Mother, CSI, and Scrubs.  He also starred in the 2009 independent film Irene in Time.  This spring, Mangeniello is set to shoot the new CBS comedy “Livin’ on a Prayer” from the creators of How I Met Your Mother. 

Manganiello, 34, is currently dating the lovely actress Audra Marie.  Okay ladies, he may be taken, but at least we’ll get to see him in action – and hopefully shirtless – on the next season of HBO’s hit series!
