True Blood First Look: Joe Manganiello as Alcide

at .

Of all the new actors and characters set to come aboard True Blood for season three, none will play a bigger role than Joe Manganiello as Alcide.

This werewolf will grow mighty close to Sookie. Just how close, exactly?

“There is definitely some [sexual] energy between the two of them,” executive producer Alan Ball told Entertainment Weekly of the duo, who pair up to locate the recently-kidnapped Bill. “It’s not like either one of them is looking for romance, but they’re thrown into several intense situations [and] it’s hard not to bond on a deeper level.”

Also on a superficial level, Ball adds. After all: "This being True Blood, he’s already shot his first naked scene. Hello, werewolves when they shift — no clothes!”

As you might expect, Alcide isn't the only character who will get nude when season three premieres on HBO this summer. We can't wait.
