Saba wanted me to write about ASkars, but I have decided instead to pay tribute to the most attractive werewolf of all time, Alcide Herveaux, portrayed by Joe Manganiello. Although the cast of True Blood is ridiculously good-looking (I’m also enamored with Sam Trammell), Manganiello and his beard are simply magnificent, robust, and rugged—the actor wears the lumberjack/construction worker look very well. His physique is impeccable, almost as if it were sculpted by Michelangelo’s nimble hands. He leaves me so speechless. He attended Carnegie Mellon so that must also mean he’s intelligent and hard-working (I mean, have you seen him?!). To be honest, I think the only thing wrong with Manganiello is that he’s a Steelers fan.
