Furbangers Unite! True Blood’s Joe Manganiello Teases Eric & Alcide Throwdown

Joe Manganiello, True Blood John P. Johnson/HBO

Sorry, Taylor Lautner. You've officially been replaced by Joe Manganiello (Alcide) as the hottest WILF (Werewolf I'd Like to...ya know!). It's not you, it's us. No hard feelings, OK?

While we're on the subject, Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) might want to watch his back, too. Not that we're replacing that sexy vamp—but things are about to get a little heated between Alcide and the sheriff.

And yes, Sookie (Anna Paquin) is involved—did you even need to ask?!

Once again Sookie is tearing apart the men of True Blood—the little cutie can't help it!

"Obviously, Bill and Sookie have been having some problems, and Alcide is in a very interesting position as far as all of that goes," Joe tells us. "And Eric steps into the mix as well." Dun-dun-dun!

Joe elaborates coyly: "Werewolves and vampires don't like each other to begin with. You will wind up seeing Eric and Alcide together at some point. When I was being cast, I heard that they were looking for somebody as tall or taller than Alex because they wanted somebody who could square off against him. I'll just say that."

Bah! No harm must come to these two beautiful bodies—that's all we ask! Shirtless and oiled up is OK. Are you hearing this, Alan Ball?

Poor Alcide's cuckoo-bananas ex, Debbie (Brit Morgan), is going to continue wreaking havoc in his life, too. "Everybody has that psycho ex that will not go away, right?" Joe jokes.

And get ready, furbangers—Joe's favorite nickname for you Alcide fans—because there's some fab werewolfy fun in this Sunday's ep, including some explanations for last week's group howler.

Werewolves transform, says Joe, when there are "drastic changes in mood, a full moon and also when wolves around you start changing. It's hard not to change when everyone's changing around you."

Don't change too much, Joe. We love you just the way you are.
