Joe Manganiello: I Growled in A Casting Director's Face!

Joe Manganiello: I Growled in A Casting Director's Face!

True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello snacks on pizza in a new piece for Interview magazine.

Here’s what the 33-year-old actor had to share:

On his audition for True Blood: “My first audition was for a different werewolf role–it was me, ten inches away from the casting director, growling in her face. It felt great. They called me back in and said they wanted me to read again, but this time for the part of Alcide. Since I was a fan of the series and had already read all the books, I knew this was a bigger role, and was totally overwhelmed when I got it.”

On how he would teach Werewolf Acting 101: “I mean, I feel like I’ve been pretending I was a werewolf since I was a little kid. But it takes work. It’s about dialect work… I’m not going to lie–it’s about going to the gym. It’s a lot about letting it all go, remembering when you were a crazy primal kid running around and screaming. I wouldn’t tell anyone to study werewolves–I studied wolves, how they moved, their tendencies and sensibilities.”
