"I know everything that happens to my character pretty much the entire season," he teased at the GQ Men of the Year party at Chateau Marmont. "I've read the first two scripts. There are a lot more werewolves! There are going to be more werewolves for me to play with—some hot-chick werewolves and badass dudes."

As you probably know by now, the hunkster is one of gaggle of hot men who play strippers in the upcoming Steven Soderbergh-directed flick Magic Mike. He plays a character called Big D--k Richie.

"The fact that they're calling my brother 'Big D--k Nick' at work that makes it completely worth it," Manganiello said. "They're like, 'Big D--k Nick, get the phone!'"

Manganiello says he has six dance routines in the movie, two of which are group numbers with costars Channing Tatum (the movie is based on his pre-Hollywood work as a male stripper), Matt Bomer and Alex Pettyfer, among others.

He says he finds himself starting to dance if he hears one of the Magic songs—no matter where he is.

"Once you start doing it, you want to keep doing it," he said, gyrating his hips a bit. "You find yourself in the morning going to the gas station, filling up your car with gas and the song is playing and you just start dancing. I'm like, 'Someone in this gas station's going to get it.' It's a lot of fun. There's probably a Funny Or Die video in there somewhere."
