Joe Manganiello on Superman rumours

True Blood star Joe Manganiello has said he'd be 'honoured' to play Superman in the Zack Snyder reboot.

The actor, who is rumoured to be a frontrunner in the search for a new Clark Kent, was full of praise for the filmmaker.

"He's an unbelievable director, I'm a huge fan of 300," Joe said.

He added that the casting decision "would be up to them - but I'd be honoured."

The 33-year-old hit the red carpet for a party recognising The Trevor Project, which focuses on suicide prevention for gay young people in the States.

"I'm here tonight to help raise awareness because a lot of people don't realise that the suicide attempt rate for gay and bisexual teens is four times that of heterosexual teens," he explained.

The actor recently got engaged to his model and actress girlfriend Audra Marie - but was keeping tight lipped about when he'd be walking down the isle.

"Well, we're actually just enjoying being engaged right now," he said.

He added: "We got engaged in Italy, it was very romantic and we're just loving being engaged."
