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 »
“Magic Mike,” aka the movie where Channing Tatum will play a stripper (a job he has actually held in real life), is shaping up to have the hottest supporting cast ever. And we can only imagine that most of them will be taking off their clothes. Thursday, it was announced that Matthew McConaughey had signed on to play Dallas, a former dancer who runs the Xquisite Club where Magic Mike works. It also was revealed that Matt Bomer of “White Collar” had committed to playing a stripper in Magic Mike’s coterie. And yesterday we learned that Joe Manganiello is in final talks to play the role of Big Dick Richie in the movie. Which, great name?
After the jump, who of these three we would shun, shag, and marry. Keep reading »
My relationship with Joe Manganiello goes way back. It started when he appeared in a bit part on “How I Met Your Mother.” Wow, that guy is hot, I thought. A few years later, the same gorgeous face appeared as a heartbroken werewolf on “True Blood” with a prediliction for taking his shirt off. I swooned. Joe has yet to make an appearance in the two episodes of “TB” season four that have aired so far, which is highly disappointing. So today, when I caught a glimpse Joe’s cover of Muscle & Fitness magazine, it was the first time we’d come face to face in months. And I freaked. That perfect, perfect specimen has gotten—gulp—way too muscle-bound for my taste. Put down the weights, Joe, put down the weights. Keep reading »
