Call it the Year of Alcide?
True Blood season 5 has put the hunky werewolf front and center, after he killed Marcus and became de facto leader of his pack.
So while "there's a little werewolf show within the show," Joe Manganiello is also excited for a storyline later this season that puts him with the other top stars of the show.
So, Alcide is Shaggy, right? So, Sookie and Bill are Daphne and Fred ... and Eric is Scooby?
"Hanging out with them, we just have a really great time. It feels like a family. I mean, obviously Stephen and Anna are legal family, but it was really fun."
And just like family, Joe got teased quite a bit for playing a stripper in the movie Magic Mike.
"It got to the point where we were on set and we were just, like, humping furniture pieces and going over what body rolls are," he says. "It was really funny."
Please, somebody tell us they got that on tape!
