True Blood's Joe Manganiello Breaks Down That Infamous Sookie-Alcide Sex Scene

True Blood fans who’d been wishing and hoping for a Sookie-Alcide sex scene got a lot more than they’d bargained for when the super sexy duo hooked up early in Season 5. The man behind the latter character, Joe Manganiello, stopped by TVLine’s Comic-Con interview suite to talk specifically about what “came up” during that infamous interlude — and how exactly he felt when it happened.

Plus, Manganiello and co-star Kristin Bauer talk Blood-y bloopers, cryptic codes and Manganiello’s life since Magic Mike. A key exchange: “I think I pretty much dry-humped every daytime talk show host in New York City.” “Who hasn’t?”

Press play below for Manganiello’s play-by-play, then hit the comments with your thoughts. And for more scoopy good Comic-Con video interviews, follow me on Twitter @MichaelAusiello.

  • These interviews are way too short. It should be at least 5 minutes for each guest.

  • So Alcide/Sookie romance will continue ? I’m a bit relieved after the Comic con trailer! (Seeing Bill with Sookie again is nightmare, same for Alcide with another wolfgirl!)

  • I’m seriously considering a career change. For some reason, NYC talk show host is really calling to me at the moment.
