'Twilight' wolfpack wants the number for Joe Manganiello's trainer

Joe manganiello true bloodWe saw this one coming a mile away -- turns out the insanely hot new "True Blood" werewolf Joe Manganiello has stirred up some body envy in a different wolfpack: the lupine boys of "The Twilight Saga."

We caught up with Manganiello at Comic-Con this weekend, hitting up EW and SyFy's celebration Saturday night, where he told us he's seeing his furry brethren from the Summit films all over Hollywood and beyond.

"I keep running into the other werewolves," he said, "and they're like, 'Dude, who is your trainer?'"

If you're listening, Taylor Lautner, Alex Meraz, Chaske Spencer, Bronson Pelletier and Kiowa Gordon, Manganiello works with Ron Mathews, the man responsible for Hugh Jackman's ripped bod in the "X-Men" and "X-Men Origins" films.

And work he does, as evidenced by the shirtless Muscle & Fitness shoot Manganiello just completed. (And, oh, there's video after the jump. You're welcome.) 

Which wolf does it for you, Manganiello's Alcide from "True Blood" or the guys of "Twilight"? Tell us in the comments section below.
