'True Blood' Guys Cover 'TV Guide'

Check out Alexander Skarsgard, Stephen Moyer, and Joe Manganiello on the cover of the latest issue of TV Guide!

Here’s what the three True Blood stars had to share with the mag:

On whether Joe went through an initiation when he joined the cast:
Joe: The new guy on a show can feel like an outsider. There can be egos and things like that. But Anna was completely friendly, welcoming. Still, the guys won’t let me make eye contact.
Stephen: I make him get on his knees so we’re eye-to-eye.
Joe: But I guess the initiation would be wearing the “sock” [a wardrobe item that protects an actor's modesty in a nude scene].
Alex: I put it on him. [Laughs] Someone had to show him, you know?

On who works out the most:
Stephen: Joe’s insane.
Joe: Yeah. I work out twice a day, six days a week. I eat constantly.
Stephen: I do three days a week. I just don’t want to watch this show 20 years from now and look at myself and say, “Who is that white blob?”
Alex: I do three days a week, too. But with Joe, it’s all about the pecs. He can make them dance.
Joe: Alex hasn’t looked me in the eye once. I’m like, “Up here, Alex. Up here.”

    Oh boy,is Alex such a Famewh@re.Homewrecker taught him very well.But his father also taught him a little more on how to deal with the media.One can only wonder on how in the world did Alex became coverboy to 3 mags without being in any movie,not much less being a lead to that soap opera!!

  • yummy

  • abc

    Alexander and Joe <3

  • Larissa

    Excellent! Love the cover. I love Alexander Skarsgard.

  • Alison

    Where is Ryan Kwanten! HE is the hottest one on the show!

  • @Alison

    Considering the subtitle to the article is “Who will capture Sookie’s heart?”, having Ryan pictured would be kind of creepy. There’s enough imbreeding going on in Hotshot.

  • RN012

    Alex is so hot. I can’t wait for the next episode!

  • Lisa

    Yes love what AB said about Eric & Sookie falling in love & how Stephan said the best stuff this season is the Eric & Sookie part!

  • AbFab

    Alex looks sexy hot in this cover.

  • tami

    Very nice cover. Love it!

  • Whoa Nelly

    I just bet Alex offered to “HELP” Joe with his sock

  • pinkydoo

    I don’t watch the show, but I should. I think all these guys are super sexy…

    Here’s one of the scanned pages of the issue, these guys are too funny:

  • Narnia

    Two handsome men…
    Is so sad that Alexander SkarsgÄrs is interesting only when he shows muscles.

  • Lisa

    Hey does anyone go to the Purse Forum, I sometimes go to the Skarsgard thread but the site is giving me problems & won’t load….

  • GreenCAT

    Love the cover! All three are hot in their own way!

  • SarahC

    They’re goodlooking, but where’s Kevin Alejandro? He’s the one that does it for me…

  • Yummy

    Stephen Moyer is a gorgeous sexy man. Me likey sooooo much!!

  • MangerBouger

    Ha ha !!! Loving their hilarious comments on how HOT they look. For once, men are not shy to talk about it !!! Since “True Blood” is on, there is no ‘normality’ or what so ever – and I’m loving it ! Poor american puritans ha ha !!!

  • British Latin American

    Alex is the most masculine, Joe is the most buff, and Stephen the wittiest. But they are all gorgeous men.

  • British Latin American

    @Alison: Perhaps the majority of the fans do not think so?

  • ladybug

    @British Latin American: I don’t think that’s the case for this cover, they’re focusing on Sookie’s suitors (as they did with last year’s cover).
    Perhaps they should do a cover with the ‘other’ hot men of TB.

    @Narnia: Oh my but you have been very under exposed. The man is at his best when in a comedic setting as the rest of the world is finding out. If SNL does not grab him while he is filming in NYC this summer they are crazy!!!!!

  • lafamepoma

    Always Alex ^^

    @SarahC: Again the title is about the men for Sookie. Kevin’s character Jesus does not fit there. sorry.
