Manganiello: My fun with Rock!

Chris Rock joins a star-studded cast in the new movie

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.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
