Making the switch from playing a werewolf on HBO's "True Blood" to guest starring on "Two and a Half Men," tall, dark and handsome Joe Manganiello caught up with "Extra's" Mario Lopez at The Grove.
Manganiello, who stars in the sitcom as a plastic surgeon, said, "I play the new boyfriend of Ashton Kutcher's ex... so he doesn't like me very much." He added, "I only shot one episode, but if we're gonna shoot more, they gotta hurry up 'cause I'm going back to season five of 'True Blood'!"
The 34-year-old is currently filming "Magic Mike," a Steven Soderbergh film in which he plays a male stripper named Big Dick Richie. The muscular hunk explained, "A lot of people [ask], "'Oh, so you're working the pole?' The pole's more for girls. I'm the fireman." Joe demonstrated some of his sexy moves, saying, "You get the body rolling."
The actor, who has no shortage of female fans, revealed his craziest experience with an admirer, saying, "A couple of years ago, a fan said she heard of wolf saliva [being able to] heal wounds... and then she asked me to lick her."
Catch Joe in "True Blood," returning in June, and "Two and a Half Men," airing Monday on CBS.

"Do not turn off the camera! You've seen how quickly I can kill. Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Russell Edgington and I have been a vampire for nearly three-thousand years. Now, the American Vampire League wishes to perpetuate the idea that we are just like you. I suppose in a few small ways we are. We're narcissists. We care only about getting what we want no matter what the cost just like you. Global warming, perpetual war, toxic waste, child labor, torture, genocide, That's a small price to pay for your SUVs and your flat screen TVs, your blood diamonds, your designer jeans, your absurd garish McMansions! Futile symbols of pertinence to quell your quivering, spineless souls. But no, in the end we are nothing like you. We are immortal. Because we drink the true blood. Blood that is living, organic and human. And that is the truce the AVL wishes to conceal from you because let's face it eating people is a tough sale these days so they put on their friendly faces to pass their beloved VRA but make no mistake. Mine is the true face of vampire! Why would we seek equal rights? You are not our equals. We will eat you after we eat your children. Now time for the weather. Tiffany?"
