I didn’t think it was possible, but season 3 of True Blood is going to get sexier with the addition of Joe Manganiello as Alcide Herveaux. HBO’s wildly successful vampire series about a telepathic waitress living in fictional Bon Temps, Louisiana already has fans drooling over this new character. True Blood season 3 returns to HBO on June 13, 2010.
Who is Alcide Herveaux?
Fans of the Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse series know that Alcide Herveaux is a sexy werewolf who shakes things up in Sookie Stackhouse’s love triangle between vampires Bill Compton and Eric Northam. He runs a surveying company with his father in Shreveport and has a tumultuous relationship with his girlfriend Debbie Pelt.
Alcide Herveaux in True Blood Season 3
The third season is based Harris’ third novel, Club Dead, in which telepathic Sookie Stackhouse searches for her missing vampire boyfriend, Bill Compton. Alcide Herveaux, a werewolf indebted to the vampires, is sent to help Sookie search for Bill. Things get a little interesting when Sookie starts to develop feelings for Alcide and he becomes her new love interest. The TV series does stray from Charlaine Harris’ novels, but it will be interesting to see what becomes of Alcide in True Blood.
Joe Manganiello as Werewolf Alcide
Most viewers will recognize that talented Joe Manganiello for playing Owen on One Tree Hill and Brad on How I Met Your Mother. The beefy actor was born December 28, 1976 and is from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania according to the Internet Movie Database (IMDB). He also starred in Spider-Man 3 as Flash Thompson. I think Joe Manganiello as Alcide Herveaux was an excellent casting choice because he looks rugged, manly and is very charismatic.
