Joe Manganiello Already Giggling About His Magic Mike Role

Joe Manganiello.

Joe Manganiello says he'll have no trouble dropping trou for Steven Soderbergh's upcoming male stripper drama Magic Mike. "It's not that different from what I do on set on True Blood," he told the Huffington Post. "I wonder if some of the other guys have done it before — taken their clothes off on camera. For me, it's just a typical day at the office." Still, there is one little thing about the role that gives him the giggles ... well, make that one big thing: "The fact that I've said yes to a part named Big Dick Richie is hilarious to me. When I first started acting it was Merchant of Venice and all of these Ibsen plays and turn-of-the-century drama, so the fact that I went through all of that training and now I'm known because I flash my butt on screen, that's hysterical. It really does make me laugh, but who cares? I'm having more fun than I've ever had acting in my entire life right now." [HuffPo]
