Joe Manganiello’s first Hollywood job was as as a bodyguard. He had been cast in Spider-Man, but had to wait six months for production to begin. In the meantime, he worked for Tyrese as a bodyguard.

Manganiello may be best known for his role as a werewolf in True Blood. This season, Alcide is the leader of the werewolf pack, taking on a responsibility he never wanted in the past.

What convinced Joe Manganiello to take on his eye candy role in Magic Mike? He worked with Chris Rock on the What To Expect When You’re Expecting movie, who became a life and career mentor for him.

“Buy the Porsche now,” Rock advised him on relationships and future family plans.

As for Magic Mike, Rock told Manganiello not to worry about taking another role that would require him to take his shirt off. As Rock noted, it worked out fine for Brad Pitt all these years.

The team put Joe to the test by making him face off against Sharon Osbourne in some Ozzy Osbourne trivia. Julie chen even put on an Ozzy wig to moderate the competition.

If you got a question right, you get a point. But if you get it wrong or lose the question, you have to remove an item of clothing. I think it’s safe to say that no one wants to see Sharon Osbourne getting undressed on TV.
