Warning: What you're about to read about the upcoming male stripper flick Magic Mike may make you faint.


Well, because Joe Manganiello says director Steven Soderbergh actually gives True Blood a run for its naughty money.

"There's one moment in particular in Magic Mike that I think is going to blow some minds," Manganiello, who plays Big D--k Richie in the movie, told us this weekend at Spike TV's Scream Awards. "There are a lot of moments that are going to blow minds, but there's one that goes further than True Blood."

And the teasing didn't end there...

"There's one scene that's going to stick out," Manganiello said. "It's really going to stick out."

Loosely based on Channing Tatum's pre-Hollywood life working as a male stripper, Magic Mike stars Tatum along with Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Matthew McConaughey and Alex Pettyfer.

The guys were taught to dance by "Britney Spears' choreography team," Manganiello said. "I do have a deadly body roll right now, I'll just say that," he said, laughing. "I've got the top to bottom body roll going on."

It's sounding better and better every day, isn't it? "The movie has this Animal House, Hangover kind of vibe," Manganiello said. "We're just a bunch of degenerate, drunken, drugged-up guys running around causing trouble. It's fun."

The stripping may not end on the big screen. Manganiello said, "We're actually talking about doing all of our dance moves for a charity event."

Now that's what we call putting the "fun" in fundraising.
