Joe Manganiello

You know I love me some True Blood, so I'm excited to share with you my favorite werewolf's fave read.

6'5" Joe Manganiello plays Alcide on the hit HBO show. The True Blood season finale was last night, and it was crazy awesome as usual. It's going to be a long wait til the next season in June!

According to the September 5 issue of Us Weekly, Joe listed that his favorite book is The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand in the magazine's article "25 Things You Don't Know About Me."

Brawn AND brains. Sexay.

You can follow Manganiello on Twitter HERE. Click HERE to read a recent interview from The Huffington Post. In this interview, the classically trained actor discusses his upcoming movies including his next role as a male stripper in a Steven Soderbergh film, Magic Mike.

I also recently asked Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse on True Blood) on what she is currently reading. Her answer? "My scripts. Thank you!"
I'm sure Hollywood is throwing all kinds of scripts at this talented Oscar award winning actress.

Looks like this Truebie will be cracking out the next Charlaine Harris book to get my fix til next summer.

I never would've guessed that our Joelicious Manganiello reads Ayn Rand :) But it's lovely hearing that he is reading something.

When it comes to Charlaine Harris, I've translated her TRUE BLOOD books this summer for the readers in my country, and I must say those were the most horrid, terrible and stunningly superficial books I've ever read :( I'm kinda ashamed that my name is now written in them :( I can't believe such a bad bad writer got published.

Dezz- Yep, Joe is intelligent AND nice looking! That is great that you translate English books for readers in your country, Dezz. I do enjoy the Harris books. They are fun reads. I do love the True Blood series even more. It's rare that I like the TV or movie adaptation better than the books, but in this case I do!

Alcide reads Ayn Rand? Interesting. He could tell me about Objectivism all he wants, but I insist he keeps his shirt off.

Now I need a time warp to get to next June. I can hardly wait to see what happens next. :)

Bish Denham said...

Ayn Rand?! So long winded...More power to him for being able to plow through her verbiage.

Kelly Polark said...

LTM- I'd love to know what else he reads!
Julie - I double insist.
Kim - It's always such a long wait!!!
Bish - He seems like a very smart guy.

Kelly - LOVE the new blog, what a great idea! I'm adding it to my regular blog roll now!

AND I love me some true blood! I'm reading book #4 now, thought watching the tv series is JUST as good. *grin*

I thought only greedy capitalists read Ayn Rand?

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

Interesting. Knowing what someone is reading really does give certain insights, doesn't it?

LOL: scripts.

I sure wish True Blood's season was 6 months longer!
