I fell off the “True Blood” bandwagon midway through the last season, when the whole Lilith and PTSD plot lines became seemingly more important than showing Alexander Skarsgard naked as often as possible. Last night, I made myself watch the season premiere, and while I was drawn in by Bill Compton’s super vamp powers (will he be less annoying now?!), I still think I am going to limit my “recaps” to showing you just the NSFW moments.
So, with that in mind, watch as sexy Alcide (Joe Manganiello) finds himself celebrating his new role as wolf pack leader with not one but two naked ladies. Nice start to the season, HBO. Props.
OMG, finallllllllly. An episode of “True Blood” truly worth watching! I’ll keep the spoilers mellow just incase you missed the episode in favor of watching the Olympics. But in the clip above, Alcide (Joe Manganiello) engages in some super hot sexy sex (BARE ASS ALERT!), tossing the chick on the bed, three-point style, and lunging at her. As Winona would say, “BEEEEEEEEP!” And after the jump, Tara finally behaves like the vampire I’ve been hoping to see, showing a former classmate that she’s not someone to fuck with. Keep reading »
“The fireman routine was in the script, the silhouette dance was in the script, but the one thing I said going into it was, “Guys, please, I’m up for these two classical sword-and-sandal pictures and I’m meeting with directors on them. Please don’t put me in a gladiator outfit, I don’t want to scare them off.” And sure enough, I get to my costume fitting and they’re like, “Oh my God, we’ve got this great gladiator suit!” And I’m like, “Guys, I am not doing the gladiator.” And so the compromise was that we had this great piece of classical music and I thought, Man, what if I was made out of stone and then I broke out of the stone and formed all the famous statues, like The Thinker, and you could paint me marble? It’d be awesome: The statue come to life. And then production came back to me and they were like, “No, you know what? We found these giant ten-foot-high gold statues, so let’s paint you gold.” And I’m like, “That makes no sense at all, but fine.” So the day of shooting, there was a team of five women and it took over an hour and they just covered me, every crevice, in gold. And the costumers gave me this gold lamé thong with a fig leaf on the front, and I just went for it.”

In honor of the movie that every woman and gay man with a pulse will be masturbating to come Friday — and what at least one critic has called “The ‘Citizen Kane’ of stripper movies” — I have scoured the internet and assembled all the “Magic Mike” GIFs worth drooling over. Behold, bare asses, pelvic thrusts, grinding hips, T-shirts being ripped off, and other various states of the hot cast undressed. (Duh, NSFW.) You are so fucking welcome.

Well, to be clear, that’s not Joe Manganiello’s actual stomach, as that belly is missing his trademark eight-pack abs. But regardless, this clip is oddly sexy. And it’s also making me hungry. Enjoy!
I was ogling a whole mess of photos of “True Blood”‘s Joe Manganiello on the beach, trying to decide which one I was going to post, when I realized, I don’t have to post just one. So here are eight. It was hard to even narrow it down to these. Sometimes my job is very difficult. [Photos: INFDaily] Keep reading »
Six weeks! Six weeks until the world gets to see Channing Tatum (and Joe Manganiello and Matthew McConaughey and Matt Bomer) bumping and grinding in nothin’ but a pair of tight skivvies on the big screen. I really hope “Magic Mike” — opening June 29 — is playing at the IMAX theater. I need to see this hotness on as large a screen as possible. Entertainment Weekly just released a whole mess of photos from their current issue’s cover shoot with the cast and, I swear, I almost started tossing dollar bills at my screen and whooping. Click on to see some of my faves and then check out the rest at EW.com.
Calling all Stieg Larsson fans! Check out the new Funny Or Die video, “The Girl With The Tramp Stamp Tattoo.” Doe-eyed Emma Roberts stars as a trashy, lush version of Salander (complete with a “Breathe” tramp-stamp) and “True Blood” hottie Joe Manganiello plays a bespectacled Blomkvist. For all those unfamiliar with Manganiello, a Google search of “Joe Maganiello shirtless” is required. You can thank me later. [Funny Or Die] Keep reading »
Joe Manganiello made us swoon earlier this year when he said of his fiance, Audra Marie, “I always dreamed of finding someone who is beautiful and sweet, equal parts. And I did.” But sadly, the couple has split. Sources say the problem was that Joe was hesitating in picking a wedding date while Audra had already bought a dress, picked her bridesmaids, and started registering for gifts. Joe once said in an interview with Women’s Health that he takes breakups very seriously. “Once you’re a pickle, you can’t turn back into a cucumber,” he explained. “People just keep bouncing off their exes and wasting each other’s time. If you go back, you’ll be dealing with the same stuff that drove you apart in the first place.” So, we’re guessing it is totally over.
This is sad, but because Joe is one of the most desirable dudes in Tinseltown, it’s great news for the rest of female kind. Now we all have a chance! After the jump, some ways to impress Joe, should you ever meet him. Keep reading »
“It’s not that different from what I do on set on ‘True Blood.’ I wonder if some of the other guys have done it before — taken their clothes off on camera. For me, it’s just a typical day at the office … When I was in college, I did an off-Broadway show where I was full-frontal on stage, so I guess all of these crazy parts have been coming my way for a long time.”
—Joe Manganiello talks about his role in the upcoming Channing Tatum flick, “Magic Mike,” in which he plays a male stripper named Big Dick Richie. I have nothing to say except that, for the record, I think Joe looks very nice with clothes on, too. [LA Times] Keep reading »
