Joe Manganiello stars in "True Blood" on HBO as the loyal, no-nonsense werewolf Alcide Herveaux.

On the big screen, Manganiello stars as "Big Dick Richie" in Steven Soderbergh's "Magic Mike," opposite Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer and Olivia Munn. Manganiello also recently starred in the comedy "What to Expect When You're Expecting," opposite Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks and Chace Crawford, as Davis.

Pittsburgh-native Joe Manganiello was named one of People Magazine's Sexiest Men Alive. A star athlete since childhood, Manganiello surprised his family and friends when he decided to steer off the paved road to professional athletics and instead become an actor. Not one to do anything halfheartedly, he resolved to learn all he could about the craft before pursuing a fulltime acting career. After high school, he enrolled in the prestigious Carnegie Mellon University School of Drama where he ultimately earned his BFA in acting.

Recently, Manganiello appeared in a guest starring role on CBS' popular comedy series "Two and a Half Men." The episode marked Joe's return to television comedy. He was also seen in another guest starring role on USA Network's loved action-drama series "White Collar" opposite friend and fellow Carnegie Mellon alum, Matt Bomer.

Prior to joining the cast of "True Blood," Manganiello was seen in a variety of television and film roles. He showed off his comedic chops and impeccable timing on several seasons of the Emmy Award-nominated CBS show "How I Met Your Mother," as Brad, and recurred on The CW drama "One Tree Hill" for three seasons as Owen Morello. He also starred in MyNetwork TV's "American Heiress," recurred in "ER" as Officer Litchman and has made guest appearances in "'Til Death," "CSI: NY," "Medium," "CSI: Miami," "Scrubs," "Las Vegas," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" and "Jake in Progress."

Manganiello portrayed Peter Parker's nemesis Flash Thompson in the popular "Spiderman" trilogy directed by Sam Raimi. His other credits include the starring role of Lt. Sean Macklin in the direct-to-video "Behind Enemy Lines: Colombia" (Fox) and the independent film "Irene in Time," directed by Henry Jaglom.

Manganiello currently resides in Los Angeles.
