A True Blood star could very well be the frontrunner for the role of a lifetime—namely that of the Man of Steel himself—in Zack Snyder's upcoming film Superman: Man of Steel. If you're guessing Alexander Skarsgard, you're wrong. But if you're guessing Joe Manganiello, yup, you're right.
If you were hoping that Joe Manganiello, who plays werewolf Alcide Herveaux on HBO's True Blood, was going to nab the role of Superman in director Zack Snyder's reboot, don't be angry with Henry Cavill, the guy who eventually got the part. Because what took Manganiello out of the running was True Blood itself.
