About Joe Manganiello

Joe Manganiello is a famous American actor whose professional film career began by playing Flash Thompson in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man". He rose to fame after his role came in the form of werewolf Alcide Herveaux in five seasons of the HBO series "True Blood". In the year 1999, he appeared in the student film Out of Courage 2: Out for Vengeance for his role as Ruslan Zmeyev which was his debut film. Apart from acting, he also wrote and produced this film. In the year 2006, he guest appeared in the American comedy series Jake in Progress for his role as Rick Cavanaugh in the episode titled "Notting Hell" which was his debut TV show. This series also broadcasted from just 2005 to 2006 on ABC.

In late 2013, he became a published author when his first book, "Evolution", was released by Simon & Schuster's Gallery Books. He was titled "Favorite Pop-Culture Werewolf of All Time" by Entertainment Weekly readers in the year 2011. In 2017 he won a Mid-Atlantic Emmy as the narrator of the documentary Pittsburgh Is Home: The Story of the Penguins, which documented the first 50 years of history of the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey team. His nickname is Joe, Alcide, Big Dick Richie. 

Recent in the news, Joe Manganiello has been rocking a blue mohawk for several weeks, and wife Sofia Vergara had yet to weigh in on the new 'do…until now! Joe Manganiello joked about his wife Sofia Vergara's reaction to his new hairdo - a blue Mohawk he dyed on a whim during a break between movie roles. 'You know, she married an actor, so she had to think the weirdness would come out at some point,' said the Pittsburgh native, 43. Manganiello, who celebrated his fifth anniversary with the Modern Family beauty last month, explained to the outlet that the blue Mohawk comes during a time when he doesn't require a certain hairdo for a role. Manganiello stars in the upcoming film Archenemy as Max Fist, a man who claims he's a superhero in a different dimension who has lost his powers. "Everything generally that I do looks-wise has to do with some sort of role," he told the outlet. "This was one of the rare times when I had a couple of weeks to do something with my hair that I wanted to do." He debuted the blue mohawk (and showed off his massive biceps) in an Instagram gym selfie last month with the caption, "Time to go to work..."

Joe Manganiello is famous for being an actor. He is best known for working in the HBO television series "True Blood" for his role as werewolf Alcide Herveaux since 2010.
