Let’s be honest – pretty much everyone lately is obsessed with Joe Manganiello. Sure, the ladies love him because he’s absolutely gorgeous with abs of steel, as his performance in Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL prove. However, he’s earned quite the male fan base as well. Why, you ask? It’s because he’s, quite simply, a guy’s guy. He loves to work out, indulge in things like beer and burgers, watch football, and just relax after a long day on set. Plus, need we mention the reason he’s been in the news lately, his marriage to super sexy Hollywood star Sofia Vergara? Suffice to say, any man would likely trade places with Joe Manganiello in an instant.
However, apart from his workout regime and his relationship, Manganiello is a bit of a man of mystery. Prior to scoring his role as werewolf Alcide Herveaux on HBO’s True Blood, he bounced around from one small recurring role to another, and apart from his role as Big Dick Richie in the Magic Mike franchise, he hasn’t really been the A-List lead in any of his projects. However, that’s all changing – his star is definitely on the rise, and we have no doubt that he’s going to be the star power behind countless film and television projects to come.
