Were-Dreams Come True


Prayer works according to Joe Manganiello, Alan Ball's latest werewolf, who credits his True Blood casting with the hours of spiritual pleading he clocked 25 years ago: "When I was a little kid, the nun at my elementary school said if you pray for something hard enough, it'll happen. And I would pray every day with all of my heart that God would turn me into a werewolf." Over two decades later, Manganiello's pleas were answered with an invitation to Bon Temps, which crumbled Sookie's future wereman-meat into fitful sobs: "I'm not afraid to admit that I started crying." Now that his tears have dried, Manganiello is subjecting himself to daily "Werewolf Workouts" to get that Lautner 16-pack. [EW]
