Joe Manganiello picks the Week 1 NFL games.

From USA Today: For The Win

To get in the mind of Joe Manganiello, the True Blood and Magic Mike actor who is helping us pick NFL games for Week 1, you have to understand that he loves the Steelers.

“Steeler football,” Manganiello said, when asked what excited him about the upcoming season. “Every Sunday. I need an offseason emotionally to rest up and get ready.”

So it goes without saying that he picked his Pittsburgh team over the Browns in Week 1. Manganiello knows his football, and stayed mostly with the favorites across the board. For the other AFC North game, Manganiello liked the Bengals to take care of business against the Raiders.

Manganiello kicks off an NFL season-long celebrity pick ‘em at For The Win.Hollywood’s biggest stars will join us each week to discuss their passions, new projects, and of course pick NFL games.

When it came to picking the Raiders over the Jets, Manganiello didn’t mince words. ““I think the Jets have been too much of a train wreck over the past couple years,”  he said. “I think Rex Ryan did a great job coaching last year, but I just don’t believe in Geno [Smith]…I’m going to go with the rookie. I’m going to go with [Raiders quarterback] Derek Carr.”

Manganiello didn’t just pick football games, though. He also weighed in on several other important NFL questions.
Which NFL players he’d pick to fight a pack of ‘True Blood’ werewolves

I’d want the 2008 Pittsburgh Steelers defense. Number one in the league. Statistically one of the greatest defenses of all time. And for some reason kind of overlooked past the 2000 Ravens and the ’78 Steelers, which I think is kind of ridiculous. You look, statistically, they were insane.

So I’d take those guys. Cause you’re gonna get James Harrison. You’re gonna got Troy [Polamalu]. You’re gonna get Ryan Clark, who I miss very much. You’re gonna get the Brett Kiesel. [LaMarr] Woodley was on that team. You’re gonna get some badass dudes on that squad. I’d go to battle with them.

His pick for greatest on-screen quarterbacks

We should go in reverse order. I haven’t seen it in a while, but Necessary Roughness Scott Bacula. No, maybe I’d go [James] Van Der Beek. I’d go Van Der Beek in Varsity Blues, that’d be number four. Then I’d go Scott Bacula number three.

Number two, forget The Replacements, I’d go [Keanu Reeves as] Johnny Utah. That’s one of the greatest character names ever and Point Break is a badass movie. But, in terms of movie quarterbacks, it’s difficult to beat [Jamie Foxx as] “Steamin’” Willie Beamen. You gotta go Willie Beamen as number one.

Who he’d pick to coach a team of vampires

Well, I hate vampires, so I wouldn’t even care. Who’s gonna coach the vampires? Tom Coughlin is the first one that comes to mind.

What he’d change if he was Roger Goodell

If I could figure out a way to get into a time machine as Roger Goodell and go back a few years to when James Harrison had all of those fines. There were a couple of those that were $75,000 fines for hitting a ball carrier who lowered his head while carrying the ball. I think, in my mind, that put a fear into James Harrison that he was going to get suspended, and I think that changed his career.

What he’d pick as Johnny Manziel’s nickname if he was in ‘Magic Mike’

Johnny Strip Club.

What he’d pick as Russell Wilson’s nickname if he was in ‘Magic Mike’

Pocket Lightning.

What he’d pick for the title of a buddy cop movie starring him and Troy Polamalu

Well, Troy went to USC so it would make sense that we’d both be in L.A. It would be L.A. Vice.

It’s me and Troy in the car, he’s kind of questioning me because I’m an actor guy, not too sure. But then in the first day on the job I take off out of the car and just completely, perfectly form-tackle some dude into the ground and just cuff him. Troy would grow some respect for me, and we’d kind of get along. But we’d come from different worlds

Joe Visits With The Cinema Source

Joe visited with The Cinema Source to talk LaBare, True Blood and more with Dan Deevy.  Here’s the video and more from the event.


Joe Manganiello Exclusive Interview – La Bare by thecinemasource

It’s not everyday that one of the most physically perfect men on the planet takes the time to visit your office, so when actor / director Joe Manganiello stopped by the TCS Studio last week to chat about his new film La Bare, we made sure to document each and every moment of the experience.  La Bare is an insider’s look at the history, the lives and the culture of the most popular male strip club in the world, La Bare Dallas.   Joe Manganiello (Magic Mike) steps behind the camera for La Bare, a documentary film that goes behind the curtain, behind the stage and behind the magic of the world’s most popular male strip club – La Bare Dallas.

Produced by Joe Manganiello & Nick Manganiello with 3:59 INCORPORATED. Distributed by Main Street Films.Featuring a unique ensemble of the club’s most popular dancers, La Bare takes a provocative look into their rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle and offers a front row seat to their lives, loves, laughs and losses.  Since the birth of the male review in the late 1970s, the greatest male strippers in the world can all be traced back to one club… La Bare Dallas.   These are the true stories behind the magic of the men and women of La Bare. Directed by Joe Manganiello (True BloodMagic Mike).

Quotes from Director/Producer, Joe Manganiello (True BloodMagic Mike):

“When I got the call letting me know that not only was Stephen Soderbergh not retiring but that he was offering me the role of “Big Dick Richie” in his new movie about male strippers, Magic Mike, I honestly didn’t know what to think. I, like most of the mass general public was full of pre-conceived notions about the profession of male entertainment.”

“Throughout all of Magic Mike‘s success, the one prevailing compliment/complaint I received from just about everyone who saw the film was that they wanted more of the guys. People were unanimously interested in knowing more about our characters, who they were, where they lived, how they grew up, who they dated, etc. So, when my brother and I started our production company 3:59 in the late fall of last year, we decided that as our first order of business, we’d take a small crew to Dallas to see if we could find a story capable of satisfying everyone’s curiosity. What we found was a goldmine.”

“In La Bare, we set out to give audiences a privileged, behind the curtains look at one of the most mysterious and misunderstood professions that has ever existed and what we uncovered was something that transcended anything we could have ever hoped for. Lucky for us we had the cameras pointed in the right direction.”

La Bare marks the feature film directorial debut for Manganiello.

He is best known to audiences for his roles as “Big Dick Richie” in Steven Soderbergh‘s male stripper phenomena Magic Mike and as werewolf “Alcide Herveaux,” on HBO’s True Blood for which he has won both critical and popular praise. In 2012 the readers of Entertainment Weekly Magazine voted him, “Favorite Pop-Culture Werewolf of All Time.”

2013 saw Manganiello publish his first book, EVOLUTION through Simon & Schuster’s Gallery Books to overwhelming demand, forcing a second print within its first week of release.  He holds a BFA in Acting from The Carnegie Mellon School of Drama and could most recently be seen on stage as “Stanley Kowalski” at the Yale Repertory Theatre’s first ever production of A Streetcar Named Desirethis past fall.

Recently, he was seen alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sam Worthington as DEA Agent “Joseph “Grinder” Phillips,” in writer/director David Ayer‘s film Sabotage and reprised his role as “Alcide Herveaux” for the final season of HBO’s True BloodManganiello is the President/CEO of 3:59 INCORPORATED, a production company with a full slate of projects in development for 2014 that he runs alongside his brother/producing partner Nick Manganiellobased out of Los Angeles.

Video: Joe on Larry King Now

Joe Manganiello recently sat down with Larry King on his Emmy nominated series “Larry King Now” to discuss his directorial debut “La Bare” showcasing the world of male exotic dancing, the end of “True Blood”, what very personal item he took with him from set and his special new romance with Sofia Vergara. Joe was also recently named People Magazine’s ‘Hollywood’s Hottest Bachelor’.

The ‘Bachelor’ told Larry that he felt “True Blood” “opened up a whole world for me” and discussed how special it was and also responded to how flattering the fans reactions were to Alcide’s death. “I’m kind of taken aback. I hope nobody does anything too drastic. I mean, getting drunk and howling at the moon, I’m all for. He was a big hearted character. I love those characters and I look for those characters.” He also discussed ‘Magic Mike’, the upcoming sequel and his take on Channing Tatum’s success.

The news of his relationship with Emmy winner Sofia Vergara has been swirling around town. “She became single and I knew I had a very small window of opportunity and I wasn’t going to let it go and I just went after it.”

Joe Manganiello wrapped up his interview by answering social media questions from some of his biggest fans including what he was going to do if he weren’t an actor, spoiler: he wanted to be a man in uniform.
