Joe Manganiello

We have seen a lot of Joe Manganiello on the big and small screen this year. A lot. Joe is usually shirtless as Alcide on HBO's True Blood. He played a stripper on Magic Mike (see photo below) and was featured in What to Expect When You Are Expecting this year. He also has a recurring role on How I Met Your Mother.

The season finale of True Blood airs this Sunday so this is the perfect time to share some of Joe's reads. Joe participated in a live HBOConnect Q&A session recently and shared some of his faves. Read the full Q&A here.

When asked what book he likes to read and reread, Joe answered, "The Hobbit was my favorite growing up."

True Blood is based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. When asked if he reads the books, Joe answered,  "I read book three before my audition and I usually read the corresponding book before we start shooting the relevant season each year."

Brains and brawn!

poor hunk if he had to read horrid TRUE BLOOD books :(
The thought of him reading anything is extremely sexy on the other hand :)
And you know, if you asked, I could've provided you with much better pics of Mangahunkyello for this post :PPP
