Joe Manganiello says True Blood prevented him from being Superman

“True Blood” star Joe Manganiello tells Access Hollywood that, despite apparently being shortlisted for the role, he never actually got as far as trying on Superman’s duds.

The actor, who snagged a meeting with Warner Bros and director Zack Snyder after relentlessly campaigning for the role, says his commitments to the HBO series meant he had to let go of his dreams to play the Man of Steel.


“At the end of the day they wanted me to screen test and they actually asked for my measurements for the suit and everything… their shoot date switched and it would have taken up 11 weeks out of my ‘True Blood’ schedule,” Joe explained. “At the end of the day, we couldn’t get the schedule to work so that I could go off and screen test. So, regrettably, I never got to go screen test, I never got to put the suit on.”

It would seem that Henry Cavill didn’t have a helluva lot competition after all.

Cavill stars as the superhero boy scout in the 2012 reboot alongside Diane Lane and – potentially – Kevin Costner.

Manganiello is currently filming the fourth season of “True Blood”, of which he’s now a regular.
