'True Blood' star Joe Manganiello says he would go ugly on command
"If Alcide was described as weighing 300 pounds with a comb-over and missing his front teeth, that's what I would look like," he said in a recent interview.
Good luck with that. Manganiello is back in top form for the fourth season of the HBO vampire show, in which he plays the tortured lupine Alcide Herveaux. Last fall, however, he was trying Superman's cape on for size.
Manganiello told GQ he was in the running for Zack Snyder's reboot of the superhero, thanks to all of his howling at the moon.
"He and his wife are huge fans of 'True Blood,'" Manganiello said.
Though he didn't land the role, he'll continue to exhibit supernatural powers on Alan Ball's mystical Southern creation, which has its season premiere on Sunday.
