I have added pics of Joe at “True Blood” Season 6 premiere and after party on Wednesday!
Check out the latest promos and sneak peeks for tomorrow’s True Blood Season 6 Premiere.
Spoiler alert! What you’re about to read contains some steamy details from Sunday’s season-six premiere of True Blood.
Just when you think you’ve seen as much of Joe Manganiello as you possibly could on the show, along comes a three-way.
Manganiello starts the new season of the hit HBO series by not only showing his bare buttocks like he’s been known to do, but he also has a blush-inducing scene in the woods with Kelly Overton and Jamie Gray Hyder.

“This crazy wild three-way…is kind of the beginning and the end of all the perks of being a pack master,” Manganiello said of his wolf character, Alcide.
“It’s the most thankless job in the world except for the random occasional three-way. It’s pretty intense. I think they looked at the footage from last year and thought, ‘Where do we go from here?’ And they figured it out.”
Overton, who plays Rikki, admits sex scenes are “always a challenge.”
Hyder said the cast and crew are used to the nudity. “Everyone is accustomed to it, not only being naked themselves but being around other naked people on the set, [so] it’s probably surprisingly oddly comfortable,” said Hyder, who plays Danielle.
And if not, Manganiello knows exactly how to lessen the tension.
“I just play some soft music, my voice drops a few octaves, I hit the jets on the Jacuzzi and start growling, baby!,” he joked.
At least we think he was joking.
Check out E Online’s interview with Joe at the True Blood Season 6 premiere.
You thought the last season of True Blood was crazy? Prepare to have the word redefined for you this Sunday when the HBO hit series returns!
“There’s some crazy stuff that goes on with me in the premiere,” star Joe Manganiello teased when he stopped by E! News’ Casual Friday to chat with Catt Sadler, before dishing more on Alcide’s threesome in the season six opener. Now if that won’t prompt you to set a series record on your DVR, we don’t know what will!
Manganiello and his costar Kristin Bauer van Straten, who plays fan-favorite vamp Pam, also dished on season six’s major death and how they said goodbye to their fellow castmember!
sounds like Alcide won’t be the only Bon Temps resident getting a little action in the season six premiere, which should please fans of Pam and Tara’s (Rutina Wesley) unexpected connection. “There’s a little something,” Bauer van Straten teased of the pair, while Manganiello hinted at some “some tender moments” for Pam.
Still, viewers shouldn’t expect to see a lot of relationship drama going down as Bauer van Straten explained, “The vampire world, we’re in a bit of crisis this year, so the vampire relationships are developing and being challenged under fire. There isn’t a ton of time for romance.”
But there will be time for a major death, one which upset the cast at the table-read, with Manganiello revealing, “There were some tears shed!” At least the fallen castmember got to have some cake before they departed the series: “That’s a tradition, when a major cast member dies, we have red velvet cake, like bloody cake,” Manganiello spilled. “We eat bloody cake and the new go back to work…unless you have a shirtless scene, then you don’t have cake!”
True Blood returns Sunday at 9 p.m. on HBO.
In the casting coup of the week, True Blood star werewolf Joe Manganiello has revealed in a new interview that he has signed on to play the scintillating and all-too-apt Tennessee Williams role of Stanley Kowalski in a new mounting of the classic A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE later this year.
Manganiello will play the part at the Yale Repertory Theatre in New Haven, Connecticut, this Fall. No further casting has been announc
ed at this time.
Stanley Kowalski was originally played iconically by Marlon Brando in both the original Elia Kazan-directed stage and screen versions of the Pulitzer Prize-winning 1948 play.
Subsequently, the character has been played on Broadway in various revivals by James Farentino, Aidan Quinn, Alec Baldwin, John C. Reilly and Blair Underwood.
Manganiello studied at Carnegie Mellon University and received a BFA in Theatre, and, judging from information available online, has portrayed Stanley onstage at least once before in an amateur production of the oft-produced classic drama, back in 2008.
A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE depicts the steamy and stormy story of Blanche, her sister, Stella, and their romantic entanglements with a brooding and boorish brute named Stanley, set in the Jazz Quarter of New Orleans.
