'True Blood' video: Meet Joe Manganiello. Wolf!



In Sunday's (June 27) episode of " True Blood," we finally laid our eyes on new werewolf, Alcide Herveaux, played by "One Tree Hill's" Joe Manganiello. And suddenly, the hunk factor, which was already pretty high, jumped a level.

Alcide was hired by Eric to escort Sookie ( Anna Paquin) to Jackson, Mississippi in her search for Bill ( Stephen Moyer). And already, she's keeping him on his toes.

In the video above, Manganiello, the show's creator, Alan Ball, and Grant Bowler, the man formerly of "Ugly Betty" and now known as Cooter (giggle), give us a look into the nature of weres and the character, Alcide.

Aren't you pleased to welcome him to the pack?
