True Blood Season 3 Spoiler: Joe Manganiello’s Sexy Scenes

April 5, 2010 by  

Micheal Ausiello from presents the photo that Entertainment Weekly published in its latest issue featuring Alcide (Joe Manganiello) and Sookie (Anna Paquin) in a scene where they are on the hunt to find Bill.  What is interesting about this post are some of the comments that Alan Ball makes regarding the interaction between Sookie and Alcide and Joe‘s upcoming scenes in the show.

As Alan states there is definitely going to be some sexual energy occurring between Sookie and Alcide. Both are not looking for romance but due to the circumstances that they are placed in “it’s hard not to bond on a deeper level” according to Alan.

As Alan explains it is probably not too hard for Sookie to develop an attraction to Alcide considering his physique.

“The first shirtless scene [Joe] had I was like, “Who has those abs?” Ball recalls. “He’s in crazy peak physical condition. He’s eating nothing but pure protein. And of course, this being True Blood, he’s already shot his first naked scene. Hello, werewolves when they shift — no clothes!”

Another reason to add to the growing anticipation for the return of season 3 of True Blood on June 13, 2010.

    I’m all for Eric he is my favorite! I was a little disapointed AB twisted the scene where Long Shadow attacks Sookie. In the book Eric saves her, not Bill…In the show they make Eric out to be a huge doucher…when in my book Bill is the douche! I <3 Eric(Alex)! 😀

    Cant wait, Trueblood is amazing. It kept me waiting so long for fricken season 3 and now its almost finally here. YAY!

  • Antonio

    I’m just wondering how many ladies will be “turned” to Joe this season? Think of All the gals who will be watching the show for the 1st time with S3! Joe might very well make Ryan’s Jason look like a choir boy! LOL

  • txophelia

    He’s GOT to be in amazing shape so he can show the Taylor Lautner lovers of the world what REAL men/werewolves look like! LOL

    Abs or no abs-Alex/Eric will always be my favorite!! We didn’t leave him for Jason,why should we leave him for Alcide?

  • Antonio

    I havent read the books I thought that Eric would help her to find Bill. Surely,Eric will be of Some assistance to Sookie!
    Thats Not to say that he wont do it for a price!

    • Antonio

      who has those abs? It was my thought that ryan kwanten did.
      Some of you may be saying that Alcide Is your Favorite character after This season! Could Joe out-muscle Alex and Steph and Ryan to become the new hunk for You ladies? Guess we will have to see!

        I definitely think Alcide is going to give both Bill and Eric a run for their money. There may also be some converts from Bill and Eric. But not me.

          I am with you Jaxx, I could never be turned from my favorite!
          Joe looks nice but a bit run of the mill.

    • jaxx

      Antonio, in the books, Alcide’s family owes Eric and the vamps a favor. Eric calls in the favor in the form of Alcide being a sort of bodyguard for Sookie while she looks for Bill. Don’t know if AB is going to follow the same formula or invent his own reasons why Alcide is helping Sookie, but I’m sure we’ll find out as S3 unfolds.

      How nice of Alan to drop this info about Mr. Manganiello’s naked scenes and abs…then release a photo of Alcide buttoned up in a flannel shirt! Heartless.
