Joe Manganiello is showing off his versatility as an actor, going from the tortured Alcide on True Blood to the goofy Brad on How I Met Your Mother. And to hear the HIMYM cast tell it, he’s just as devilishly handsome in person as we think he is.

"It's competitive," Neil Patrick Harris tells ET of sharing the set with Joe. "I'll tell you what, [there's] a lot of swooning [in] his direction....Everyone [gasps] every time he walks by."

His character, Brad, is banking on his undeniable sex appeal for professional gain in tonight’s episode, swaying a jury with his good looks. His status as a hottie threatens not only Marshall in the courtroom but also Barney in the bar scene.

Even Marshall’s wife, Lilly, is drawn in by Brad’s bod.

“I was rooting for my husband,” says Alyson Hannigan of Lilly’s loyalty, “[and then Brad] drops his pen and bends over, and now I'm easily swayed.”

You can catch Joe and all of his seductiveness on tonight’s installment of How I Met Your Mother, airing at 8 PM E.T. on CBS.
