Pop open a bottle of bubbly because our favorite hirsute were-man is turning 35 today, December 28!

To celebrate the studly package of manliness and muscle that is Joe Manganiello, we’ve put together a list of 5 things we love about him! Obviously, this article required lots of research, i.e., staring at Joe’s six-pack.

1. His Man Muscles

Macho, macho man! Thank goodness for the prevalent nudity on True Blood, because we’ve had the pleasure of seeing each one of Joe’s bulging muscles up close and personal, and all we have to say is hubba-hubba. This wolf-man is so built he could give Superman a run for his money!

2. His Wavy Hair

Whether it’s the hair on his body, his happy trail, or the cascading waterfall of glory atop his head, Joe Manganiello has us swooning over his locks of love. We can’t get enough of the little flecks of gray in his scruff, and the gentle waves in his mane belong in a slow-motion Herbal Essences commericial.

3. His Dreamy Voice

It’s must be all the time he spends barking and growling, because Joe’s voice is low and slow — but not in a creepy “I’m going to tape you to a toilet and make you my vampire bride way” (cough, Franklin, cough). We could listen to this were-man whisper sweet musings to us all night — er, day — long.

4. His Sense Of Humor

Have you checked out Joe’s Funny or Die video with Emma Roberts? This hunk knows how to work his LOL-bone! If there’s one thing we’ve learned from Joe’s foray into humor, it’s that he looks amazing in a cowl neck wool sweater.

5. His Acting Chops

At this point, Joe’s right bicep is more famous that his acting. But just because he’s the real Iron Man, doesn’t mean that he can’t pull a Meryl Streep and act like a pro! First stop, True Blood, next stop the Academy.
