joe-manganiello-GQ.jpg“True Blood” returns to TV shortly and Joe Manganiello, who plays werewolf Alcide on the steamy HBO drama, is baring his physique for GQ – a look he often shows off on in Bon Temps. But he tells GQ that he just goes with what the part requires.

“If Alcide was described as weighing 300 pounds with a comb-over and missing his front teeth, that’s what I would look like,” says Manganiello.

Thank God that’s not what Alcide looks like. “True Blood” Season 4 starts Sunday, June 26 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO and just in case you can’t remember where the shows has left off, HBO has kindly provided this five-minute refresher video.
