Joe Manganiello Isn’t Sure He Wants His Family to Watch Him Play ‘Big Dick Richie’

Joe Manganiello.

While True Blood's Joe Manganiello finds his Magic Mike character's name "hilarious," he's a little put off by the idea of his parents (and grandparents and siblings and aunts) watching his performance in Steven Soderbergh's upcoming male stripper drama. "I told them a few weeks ago that no one is seeing this movie," he said. However, the actor added, "They'll probably see it anyway, but at least they've had two seasons of True Blood to get used to it." Sure — though "Alcide Herveaux" just doesn't force the issue in quite the same way. [Ministry of Gossip/LAT]
