True Blood’s Joe Manganiello attends the John Varvatos 11th Annual Stuart House Benefit at John Varvatos Boutique on April 13, 2014 in West Hollywood, California.
True Blood will be represented at the MTV Movie Awards by none other than werewolf, Joe Manganiello.
Joe will be one of the stars appearing on the annual MTV Movie Awards pre-show Sunday night, which is will be hosted by Zendaya and “Teen Wolf” star Tyler Posey. Some of the other actors appearing during this event are Anthony Mackie, Emile Hirsch, Brooklyn Decker and Tony Hale.
The show will be hosted by Conan O’Brien and airs Sunday, April 13, 2014 at 8:30pm E and 10 C, so be sure to watch to see Joe on stage.
True Blood’s Joe Manganiello is seen on the set while filming in Concord, Massachusetts for his new film “Tumbledown,” that we previously reported about here.
Hmmm, we’re guessing that Alcide doesn’t have any True Blood screen time currently so Joe could be away for this shoot. However, we are wondering how he is able to fit in a film during the shooting of True Blood Season 7? Any thoughts?
No surprise here folks, but it looks like there WILL BE a Magic Mike 2. When Collider interviewed True Blood’s Joe Manganiello about his new film “Sabotage,” the actor offered a surprising update on Magic Mike 2, revealing that filming is poised to get underway this fall.
“Yeah, it’s gonna happen this fall. I think they’re going to announce it soon. It’s crazy. I didn’t think that would be my first franchise. I never thought that would ever be the direction of my career. But that said, it’s just proof that I don’t know best, all the time. It was the most fun I’ve ever had, and I can’t wait to get back in and mix it up with those guys.”
A director has yet to be announced for Magic Mike 2, but there has been speculation that Channing Tatum might actually co-direct with his producing/writing partner Reid Carolin. The two are looking to direct something in the near future, and recently met with producers about helming the crime thriller The Son. That said, there’s also the possibility that Tatum may opt to simply act in and produce the Magic Mike sequel, in which case another director could be brought in to take the helm.
True Blood’s Joe Manganiello’s film “Tumbledown” has begun shooting in Massachusetts using settings in the north-central region of the state to substitute for a small town in rural Maine, according to the Massachusetts Film Office. In the film, Joe will play the part of “Curtis.”
Tumbledown, starring Jason Sudeikis, Rebecca Hall, Joe Manganiello, Griffin Dunne and Blythe Danner, will be the directorial debut of Sean Mewshaw with executive producer Desi Van Til.
The film is the story of a young widow played by Hall who’s life is changed when a writer from New York, played by Sudeikis, shows up in here Maine town researching the life of her deceased husband, an acclaimed folk singer.
“We are so happy to have this film come to fruition in North Central Massachusetts where we have found the same authentic and kind-hearted spirit as the small Maine town that we aim to replicate in the film,” Van Til said in a statement.
“We have been so warmly welcomed by the community here and we are honored to be the first production in the incredible facility of the New England Studios in Devens.”

And, in the video below, Joe talks with, “On the Red Carpet” about how he was happy to work with Arnold Schwarzenegger, his “childhood idol,” in the film “Sabotage” and is flattered by the veteran action star’s praise of him.
And, finally on WWE Raw Monday night, just two weeks before WrestleMania the host of the pay-per-view event Hulk Hogan introduced the stars Joe Manganiello and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The two movie stars asked Hulk if he had room in his Andre Memorial Battle Royal.
That is when The Miz showed up with his “really?” line. He made his way to the ring calling them out saying that basically everyone in the ring had no business being there and people were still talking about him headlining WrestleMania 27 against John Cena.
The Miz declared that they’d have to force him to leave and that is when Manganiello stepped in between. The Miz tried to hit him but Manganiello blocked it, then Schwarzenegger got in a shot before Hulk threw him over the top rope.
