Joe Manganiello: Then and Now
Don’t let the abs fool you: Joe Manganiello, 35, is a classically trained actor with a BFA from the Carnegie Mellon School of Drama. Before scoring his breakout role on HBO’s True Blood as oft-shirtless werewolf Alcide Herveaux in 2010, Joe played Flash Thompson in 2002’s Spider-Man and recurred on ER, How I Met Your Mother, and One Tree Hill. To achieve his hulking werewolf physique, Joe trained for five months with the guy who prepped Hugh Jackman for X-Men. So hardcore.
With two movies out this summer — What to Expect When You’re Expecting and Magic Mike — Joe has officially made it big... in more ways than one.
