Manganiello: My fun with Rock!

Joe Manganiello has been sinking his teeth into romantic comedy What To Expect When You're Expecting.

The True Blood hunk stars in the movie, based on the pregnancy guidebook of the same name by Heidi Murkoff, alongside a star-studded cast, including Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Chace Crawford and Chris Rock.

The 34-year-old told The Hollywood Reporter: "The script was really fun and there were some fantastic A-List people attached to it. So, I get to work with some of those people and a lot of my stuff is with Chris Rock, who I am huge fan of and I quote his stand-up constantly. That in itself is fun."

Joe plays a jet-setting bachelor - the envy of the dads: "I play the perpetually single, sunbathed, world-travelling, surfing photographer, who hangs out at the park where they have their support group and they basically worship this guy.

"They basically hang out and complain about how their lives used to be. They aren't cool now, because they're dads."

The comedy, directed by Kirk Jones, is a huge contrast to the hit vampire show, which has been a challenge for the actor.

"I had done a ton of comedy before True Blood. So getting to do some of it during my hiatus is something I'm really looking forward to," he added.

The film is scheduled for release in 2012.

Putting up with toxic relationships will become a thing of the past. You'll start demanding authenticity in every area of life, especially the personal realm.More
