Joe Manganiello: I'm a meaty sweet treat

Joe Manganiello described himself as a sweet and spicy chocolate bar.

The 36-year-old is best known for playing werewolf Alcide Herveaux in TV series True Blood.

When he's not filming for the show, Joe splits his time between doing feature films such as Magic Mike and working as an ambassador for Magnum ice cream.

During a recent promotional visit to Toronto as the face of the brand, Joe shared what his signature chocolate bar would contain.

"There would be a little piece of werewolf, so there's some bacon in my bar," he told ET Online. "Milk chocolate with bacon. Then some Canadian maple fudge that I thought would go well with bacon, and some chilli flakes to mix it up a little bit."

Joe says fans of True Blood will see his character transform in the next series. He teased that he develops into an intense wolf pack leader.

"I think it's just time everybody stopped pushing Alcide around," he shared. "I love the character this year. He's taken enough c**p, and it's time to step into his own. You got to be the alpha, you've got to show the pack who's boss. There might be some time left for romance, it is True Blood."

Joe also hinted that a sequel to steamy stripper movie Magic Mike may be in the pipeline. The hunky star says he may be slipping back into his much-loved fire fighter uniform in the near future.

"Some of the guys are going to work on it, I think Reid [Carolin]'s writing and [Channing Tatum] is talking to Reid, and there is some talk of it, but there's nothing concrete yet," he explained. "But would I like to work with those guys again? Yeah. I think I probably had the best time I’ve ever had in my life working on that movie with those guys. I'd love to go back it depends on when and how."
