FanCast has a great new interview with Joe " Alcide " Manganiello

The countdown is on to ‘True Blood’s season premiere on June 13th. HBO has released a series of provocative minisodes to whet fans appetites. Much of the pre-season buzz is about the character of Alcide, a werewolf who will be spending a lot of time with Sookie (Anna Paquin) as her bodyguard. Joe Manganiello, known for playing Owen on ‘One Tree Hill‘ and Flash Thompson in the first ‘Spiderman‘ movie, landed the pivotal role. Manganiello revealed why Alcide comes into Sookie’s life, how he prepared for his nude scenes and why playing this role is the culmination of a life long dream.

Tell me all about Alcide.
Alcide is a werewolf. He plays the role of Sookie’s bodyguard in season three.

How close is the TV version to the character that is in the books?
He’s pretty close as far as the description goes. He’s brought by Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) to bodyguard Sookie because Bill’s (Stephen Moyer) been kidnapped and Sookie believes that werewolves have some information to his whereabouts. So Alcide is brought in after his father’s death to escort Sookie into the underground society of werewolves.

Are the two of them going to get romantic?
All I can say is that bonding happens. They bond.

The vampire-inspired show also promoted the release of Season Two of True Blood on DVD on May 19.

“Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Home Video enjoy significant cross promotional opportunities,” said Roger Clarke, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group MD. “It made sense to have a single agency working across both divisions. We’ve got some really strong titles releasing this year, starting with True Blood Season 2.”

The gothic event saw Designer Alvin Manalo using the True Blood series as inspiration for Saint Augustine Academy’s first individual collection at fashion week with a show called ‘Crystal Ballroom’ featuring a collection of couture of black, white and a splattering of red.

The event, overseen by Sydney based agency One Green Bean is also producing a vampire themed event in Sydney’s King’s Cross tomorrow night (May 12) named after True Blood’s popular vampire nightclub Fangtasia.

Originally conceived for the 2008 pilot season -- before the "Twilight" movies touched off vamp mania -- "The Gates" is about the Monohan family, who move into a sunny gated community populated by over-friendly neighbors hiding curious secrets.
