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.

Joe talks LaBare, Sofia and Evolution on E!News

As if there weren’t enough reasons to wish we were Sofía Vergara, this happens.

The beautiful actress’ ultra hunky boyfriend Joe Manganiello stopped by E! News to chat about his chiseled bod (sigh!), his male stripper documentary La Bare (ooh!) and the Magic Mike sequel (eek!)—oh, and of course, his relationship with the Colombian bombshell. And that’s when our man Joe revealed that his lady reaps the benefits of having a Magic Mike star as her beau. Yes, you’re gonna get so jealous that it hurts.

“Well, you know, I need to practice getting ready for Magic Mike 2. So, that’s all I have to say,” Manganiello admitted when asked if Vergara gets a private viewing of his stripper moves.

Additionally, Joe dished the deets on a funny photo that surfaced of him checking out Vergara’s backside at the White House Correspondents Dinner months before they began dating.

“C’mon you can’t put that in front of me. What am I supposed to do? I’m not going to apologize,” he said. “I totally got busted. That was actually funny when we first started dating, months after that.”

He continued, “We had talked, I guess, or kinda bumped into each other but we didn’t start dating until she was single. She had a boyfriend at that time, so I probably could’ve gotten into a fight for doing that. I’m not trying to start a fight at the White House.”

When he wasn’t dishing on his ladylove, Manganiello talked about his highly anticipated sequel taht will begin shooting “in a few weeks.”

So what can fans expect from Magic Mike 2? “More of the guys. It’s gonna be all of the guys, getting the band back together and we’re gonna go hit the road and cause some mayhem. Some trouble,” he said. In the meantime, Joe’s been keeping busy behind the camera, shooting his documentary La Bare, available on VOD now, which is based on a male strip club in Dallas.

“I wanted to get back into directing. Directing is how I fell in love with acting. I started directing in high school, I made movies in college, so this is always something I’ve done at every level and I wanted to get back into doing that.”

FYeah! Joe Manganiello sits down with Joe

Atiqah Rosle sat down with Joe recently and asked a few questions.  Here’s an excerpt you can read the rest over at FYeah! Joe Manganiello

       He points out how interesting the process of fitting a show to a network is, which is similar to the experience of trying out for a role.

            “I always wind up at the right place at the right time. It’s not really what I ever think,” He adds, referring to a period when he wasn’t able to accept acting projects due to scheduling conflicts. He was, in the end, offered another project… one that lead him to produce and direct the award-winning documentary, La Bare.

            What would he choose if he had to pick between acting in a cable TV show or a movie? Joe doesn’t hesitate, “Some of the best storytelling going on right now is happening on cable TV. I’d rather work on a good TV show than work in a bad movie.”
