True Blood’s Joe Manganiello Talks Season 4 Romances and Battles

Manganiello, 34, turned up the temperature with his smoldering performance as mysterious newcomer- and werewolf- Alcide Herveaux. True Blood fans breathed a sigh of relief when Manganiello was signed on as a regular cast member for season four.

“I love the moments where I get to play the werewolf and do some sniffing and tracking,” he said about his favorite part of the role. “Last year I loved cooking my steak and going off to eat it without a fork.
